Paper Scraps Encouragement Card with Sneak Peek at Tasteful Touches Stamp Set

My paper scraps were starting to pile up so I decided to make a simple card using one of the new stamp sets coming in the new annual catalog.

The scrap colors that I used were Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride and Whisper White with a Rich Razzleberry card base.


Adhere various cuts of scrap to another scrap piece of cardstock to hold them together. I stamped over the scraps once they were on the card base in Bermuda Bay ink using the beautiful flower from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

I used my 'D' Clear Block and stamped the image at a slight angle. For the images that are not as bright, I just used the stamping off technique.

This stamping off technique (also called second generation stamping) is a great way to get more from your ink pads. By inking up your stamp, stamping the image onto your cardstock and then stamping it again (without re-inking) you’ll get a softer, lighter shade of that color.

I took another piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock and stamped the "YOU ARE THE BEST" sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink from the same stamp set and die cut it using one of the Tasteful Labels dies that coordinates with the stamp set.

I had a little scrap Silver Foil cardstock from my Father's Day card (shown here) so I took one of the circles dies from the die set and cut out a partial half circle to help accent the sentiment label. I then popped the label up using Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish off the look of the card, I used some Whisper White Polka Dot tulle ribbon horizontally across the top of the card, about 1¼" from the top.
