All 'In Good Taste'

Hello everyone!

Our class cards this month all feature the In Good Taste DSP - currently on offer until the end of July.

The first card truly kept my ladies busy. It resembles a vintage tv set and was fun, albeit fiddly, to make. It's A6 in size so easily fits a C6 envelope. For overseas readers that's a card 10.5cm x 14.8cm (4 1/8" x approx 5 7/8").

The aperture on the front is die cut through both one piece of early espresso card and one piece of DSP using the Stitched Rectangle dies. The stamp set used for the images 'on screen' are from the Mountain Air stamp set, used with the coordinating Mountain Dies. Let me show you the card and I'll give you a little more information.

The screen is created from a piece of window sheet behind which is layered some die cut trees and a stamped vista. The layers are given depth but being mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals. The front and back of the card are attached by scored accordian style pieces of card. The control panel on the front of the tv is a die cut rectngle of sahara sand onto which a small piece of DSP is adhered to resemble the speaker on the tv. I think the hessian style paper does this well. The control buttons are simply two sizes of small cicles cut from silver foil card.

There is ample space on the reverse of the card to attach a greeting plus, if required, you could either stamp a sentiment to show 'on screen' or attach one to the tv card front. The card stands well without the need for any assistance.

I think this is a rather unusual and quirky card.

Our second card is a fun fold. I can't remember the name of the fold but think it might be a double diamond card. This has also for a layer of the DSP but is decorated with die cut flowers from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and dies. I like the fact that this card fold base, once you have a correctly sized rectangle, is all about scoring and folding without any further need to cut. A simple but pretty card.

My third card is a floating strips card which I recently saw online. The card I saw was by Melissa Stout but it was cardstock strips, whereas mine is DSP. I particularly love this card. Could it be the shades of blue swaying me to that decision???

The strips are adhered to window sheet. Dimensional foam strips are on the reverse of the window sheet, strategically place and hidden behind where the DSP is stuck on. You can see the window sheet in this side shot of the card...

The final card has floral images stamped and embossed onto vellum. These have been coloured on the reverse with Stampin' Blends then fussy cut out.

There re so many fun ways to use our patterned paper (DSP). I'm sure you can think of so many more...I know I can! Why not take advantage of the DSP promotion before it ends at on 2nd August? Here's the link to view what's on offer -
