Waterfall Cards with New Catalog Products!

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing two waterfall cards which is one of my favorite fun folds.

Both of these waterfall cards feature new products from the 2020 – 2021 Annual Catalog. I’ve used the Beautiful World, Lovely You & Tasteful Touches stamp sets plus the new 2020 – 2022 In Colors! These products will be available to purchase starting on June 3rd, 2020!

The first of my two waterfall cards features the gorgeous NEW 2020 – 2022 In Colors.

Here’s a quick look at all the consumable products in these new colors. For today’s project I’ve used ALL of the colors of cardstock and the Cinnamon Cider ribbon. Check out my “Taste of a Suite” product shares if you’d like to get a little of all of these products to try them out!

In addition to using all the new In Colors on this first card, I’ve used five additional colors that each coordinate beautifully with each of the new In Colors!

This project truly showcases these gorgeous new colors!!!

Today's projects feature two waterfall cards, one of my favorite fun folds. New stamp sets shown include Beautiful World, Lovely You & Tasteful Touches.

The sentiments on this card come from the Beautiful World Stamp Set and they’re stamped in Jet black Staz On ink. The other images on ALL the additional panels are stamped with Versamark ink ONLY, using the Lovely You Stamp Set.

Tip: In case you don’t know, Versamark is a clear ink that is most often used for heat embossing. I could have heat embossed but I chose to go with the more subtle tone on tone watermark look.

The focal piece here is made with Magenta Madness (a new In Color) and the coordinating layer behind is Rich Razzleberry.

This next focal piece is made with Misty Moonlight (a new In Color) and the coordinating layer behind is Night of Navy.

For this piece I’ve stamped my Versamark with first and second inking to add some dimension and interest.

The focal piece on this one is made with Just Jade cardstock (a new In Color) and the coordinating layer behind is Shaded Spruce.

The same two colors were used for the large green panel and the card base respectively.

The large panel to the right is also Cajun Craze cardstock.

Last but not least, I’ve used the Cinnamon Cider Ribbon to make it easy to grab and pull this last panel, and make the magic of this card happen.

This ribbon is really easy to work with. It’s supple and not too thick. It also has some nice texture and a subtle shine as you may be able to see here.

I also just have to say that I love the pairing of the first sentiment with the one on the last panel of this card!

“You Make the World a Better Place!… Thank you for being in mine!” I believe that having gratitude is immensely important to leading a healthy and happy life. I have so much to be grateful for especially the many wonderful people in my life including my crafting community! That’s you!

Thanks for sharing some of your time with me!!!

There is no doubt in my mind that I’ll be using these two stamp sets a bunch over the coming months especially those two sentiments!

The second of my two waterfall cards features a completely different color scheme and one new stamp set.

In addition to using the Beautiful World stamp set on this card, I’ve used the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set and Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder which are both parts of the In Good Taste Suite.

For the Crumb Cake panel, I’ve stamped with first and second Crumb Cake ink and dry embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. It’s hard to see the texture in this photo but make sure to check out this detail in some of the close-up photos just ahead.

Did you notice that this card only has four waterfall panels instead of five? I made some adjustments to the mechanism to make this version. Use the following dimensions and scoring to make this version:

As a reminder, the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set and Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder are both parts of the In Good Taste Suite.

The designer paper that is a part of this suite is a specialty paper and it’s just gorgeous! It includes 24 sheets (with 12 double-sided designs) instead of the usual 12 sheets (and 6 double-sided designs). That’s a lot of designer paper! Here are some photos:
