Quick and Easy Cards with Tag Talk

Today I’m featuring another Stampin’ Up! set called Tag Talk which works for birthdays, baby showers, congratulations, wedding, and gift tags.  It’s a favorite set because it has three coordinating punches, (Label Bracket, 1″ round and 1″ square punches) and has so many uses.

Above and below are two cards made with the set, using the same layout, but focusing on different Designer Series Paper and cardstock.

I could have left the wedding card just as is, and it would be a very nice neutral card, even with the Rhinestone Basic Jewels I added, but I really wanted a bow.  And I usually get what I want, at least when it comes to crafting! P1020038

Let the Designer Series paper pick your colors – Stampin’ Up!’s paper coordinates with the cardstock, and the coordinating colors are listed on the packet as well as in the catalog.  The coordinating work is done for you.

  • For the baby card, I used Lullaby Designer Series paper, Hello Honey cardstock, ink and Stitched Satin ribbon, plus Pistachio Pudding ink.
  • For the wedding card, I used Typeset Specialty Designer Series paper, Basic Black and Vanilla cardstock, and Basic Black Taffeta ribbon.  I used VersaMark ink and Basic Black Stampin’ Emboss powder to enhance the wedding sentiment.

Subtle changes make a difference -I wanted a softer look to the striped punch out on the baby card, so I inked my stamp in Hello Honey, stamped it onto scratch paper, and then stamped onto Whisper White for a water colored look.  The Pistachio Pudding is already a soft color so I stamped it directly.

Two for one – The Typeset paper is thinner, and is great for special layering and manipulating techiques (I will show examples on Friday), but still gives great coverage as a striking mat.

Thanks for stopping by and come back Friday to see some fun ways to use the Typeset Specialty Designer Series paper.
