Stampin' Up! Tasteful Touches Friendship Card

Woo hoo! How excited I am!! I was blessed to win the StampingPals Challenge #5 and have been invited to be their guest designer for Challenge #7!!

For the 2020-2022 In Color challenge I have chosen to use Just Jade, Magenta Madness, and Misty Moonlight. We are free to use black, white, or vanilla as well. I used the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set for my creation.


My inspiration came from Melissa Kerman with her Fun Fold card.

Measurements are listed below, along with some needed supplies.

In essence, I started out with a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock on which I stamped the feather from Tasteful Touches in Misty Moonlight ink. Next time I will stamp closer to the edge. Then I stamped the arm for the flap with the feather. It barely shows so I would do that closer to the edge next time as well. I adhered that with Tear n' Tape to the right edge, half way between the top and bottom.

I then cut the actual piece that serves as the card out of Basic Black card stock. I stamped the foliage in Memento Tuxedo Black on the Whisper White panel and colored the leaves with my Light Just Jade Stampin' Blend. I adhered the inner panel and the outer Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper with liquid glue.  Next, I adhered the Basic Black card to the Misty Moonlight card base. Let's go step-by-step now:

  • Stamp the flower on the Whisper White square and color it with Light and Dark Magenta Madness Stampin' Blends. 
  • Stamp the foliage alternating between first and second generation and color with the Light Just Jade Blend. 
  • Adhere it to its black mat and then to the Just Jade square so that it makes a diamond shape. Here's a refresher...

Then on the back side of that diamond, adhere the second smaller square that is stamped with the foliage and colored the same as the other decorated pieces.

The next photo is about the DSP portion. 

On the DSP part, line up the sentiment, which has been treated like the other stamped pieces and adhere that with liquid glue, making sure it is hidden when the front flap is closed. I don't have the equipment to make videos but you can always watch Melissa's if you have questions.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and I'm grateful I had the opportunity to design for StampingPals.
