Happy Tuesday!!!! I hope you are having a fabulous week and this technique makes it even better!!! 🙂 Today, I’m going to show you how to use the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper that you can get for FREE through Sale-A-Bration when you place a $50 (US) order! The catalogs shows the paper like this!
When you first see this, you may be confused and think it is tan and white paper. Really, it is white paper with the images you see in tan clear embossed onto the paper. You can’t really photograph clear on white (as you can see in my video) so Stampin’ Up! is showing it like this! Since this paper is clear embossed, you can add color to the paper and it will only pick up the color on the white areas and not on the clear embossed images. You can add your color with Spritzers, Sponge Daubers, Sponges, Brayer, Markers, Blendabilities, and stamping! It is sooooo much fun to add color and see the image show up. It is like being a child again and painting in one of those books that you add water and the image appears. (Just me?)
SUPPLIES NEEDED: Irresistibly Your Designer Series Paper, Spritzers, Stamps, Embellishments
Yeah it’s that simple! You can get this emboss resist look with just this paper. If you created this yourself, you would need Cardstock, VersaMark, Heat Tool, and Embossing Powder. I cut my Irresistibly Yours paper into 4″ x 5-1/4″ and placed it into a box for spritzing. I look the look of Spritzing but it scares me every time because I tend to get messy! 😉 I spritzed the right with Melon Mambo and the left with Elegant Eggplant. (Mix re-inker and alcohol (70 Proof or less) in a Spritzer). Underneath the greeting is the overlap or dots and spritz. I wasn’t sure if I liked that look or not so I covered it with my greeting. You could always show that off and move your greeting down. My greeting is from the Big Day Stamp Set which is also a Sale-A-Bration item! I am loving this stamp set. I colored in the letters with my Rich Razzleberry & Melon Mambo Blendabilities! You can earn those for FREE with Sale-A-Bration as well! I finished off the card with some Melon Mambo Cotton Ribbon! Here is another photo of this card!
