Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up!

Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up! #CCMC415 Sketch Challenge

Hi I’m back with one of my favourite go-to stamps of the moment! Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up! and as its Thursday that means it’s for the Create with Connie & Mary challenge, #CCMC415, which is a Sketch Challenge this week! And yes I’ve used Touches of Texture for the second challenge in a row!! 🙂


I’ve stuck to the square shape of the challenge sketch, which I normally don’t do as it means I have to make my own envelope for this card now! Oh yes I really am that lazy you know! Lol!

I’ve gone for a different look to what I would normally go for with this challenge. I hope you like it! There’s no Whisper White for a start!!!

Touches of Texture by Stampin' Up! Tracy May #CCMC415

But I do love how this card has turned out anyway!

  • I started with a 5″ x 5″ card base of Crumb Cake;
  • Then I sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges of the Very Vanilla rectangle;
  • I stamped the flowers from Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up! on the Very Vanilla Card stock and then used Dapper Denim and Delightful Dijon for added colour;
  • I used Washi tape and glimmer paper for the banner;
  • The main flower is heat embossed in gold embossing powder and coloured in Dapper Denim and Delightful Dijon!
  • The final touches are a few metallic sequins and thread!

I do very much think, that Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up! is not just a background stamp set (as I originally thought). It is so versatile!

Please do go and see all the wonderful projects the Create with Connie and Mary design team have created for you! Many thanks x



  1. I think this is BEAUTIFUL! One of my favorite new sets, and your subtle colors are just delightful!

  2. Lisa Martz says:

    I LOVE this! So wonderful! Love the larger 5×5 size.

  3. Very pretty Tracy! I love the pastel colour scheme and touches of gold – you have me totally sold on this set now!! I don’t often make square cards either – but with an Envelope Punch Board you’ve no excuse not to make a custom envelope, especially not if you use my BoxBuster tool 🙂

  4. So, so pretty! I really like the gold embossing. I don’t think to emboss often enough. I like all the gold touches. I need a lesson on how to do the gold thread.

  5. Great card! Very, very elegant with the additions of gold!
