Introducing Tip Top Taupe

Thursday, May 14, 2015

I made a few cards yesterday, and had a hard time deciding which to post first. Usually I post them in the order I made them, but this time I want to post my favorite one first. I'm so excited to share with you a card I created using one of the new In Colours (2015-2017) - Tip Top Taupe! I LOVE this colour!

The card is monochromatic and heat embossed with silver. You can see why I was excited to share this card out of turn! Isn't it lovely!

 I used three stamp sets for this card. The Papillon Potpourri is familiar to you, but the other two stamp sets are new Hostess Sets available soon in the new catalogue. These sets are not for sale, but can be acquired by hosting an event in your home, or by ordering $200 or ore online. These sets are titled "Best Thoughts" (flower, butterfly & two sentiments) and "Happy Birthday Everyone".

In order to better see the silver embossing I held the card in the light.

Would you have guessed that I used Whisper White cardstock?  I inked the cardstock using a sponge and the new Tip Top Taupe ink pad. I also used just little Sahara Sand. Then I attached these pieces onto Tip Top Taupe cardstock.

Next comes the usual side view to see the layering...

...and now the inside.

 I know you are going to love Tip Top Taupe as much as I do! You know one of the things I like about this colour? I think it is a great colour for both feminine and masculine cards and projects!

Thank you for stopping by to have a peek at this new colour!

Don't forget the Retirement List!! There's only a few weeks left, till June 2, before these items will no longer be available!! Order online, or get in touch with me.

If your order is $200+, then I want you to use all the Hostess Rewards you’ve earned.  If your order is under that, I’d be more than happy if you add  RASSC6C3 as the Hostess Code when you order.  When shopping online, enter your items into your cart (total must be under $200). At check out, look under "Special Offers" (bottom left) enter the Hostess Code in the box and click on apply.

I am so glad I joined your blog today. I think this card would be pretty for an anniversary card too.I saw you are from Victoria. We just came back from an Alaskan cruise and our last night we stopped in Victoria and it was beautiful! I can't wait to look at your other cards!
