There are some projects that just come together quickly – the colors, the layout, the layering all work just the way you imagined them. Today’s card is one of those cards for me. The very moment I received my first pack of Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper in the mail, I planned this card in my mind, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. Here’s my card:
Over the next week, I’ll share a handful of projects I created with this wonderful paper. Before I share my tips and tricks for creating this card, though, I want to share a wonderful video by Stampin’ Up! I couldn’t have prepared a video that better shares the excitement of this incredible paper:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. This specialty paper is one of the exclusive items you can earn FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order. There’s no easy way to showcase this amazing paper without putting it in your hands. The Sale-a-Bration shows the patterns and great projects with the paper, but you can’t really know how awesome it is until you create with it. Here are the patterns available with this paper:As shown in the video above, I used my brayer to create a solid, smooth background on this leafy piece of Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. I chose to ink the paper with Blushing Bride, which got deeper and richer with every layer. It wasn’t the soft, subtle hue I was going for, but I really like it.
- Color Combination. I love great combinations of colors. When I find one that works for me, I can’t stay away. I first envisioned this combination of Mossy Meadow, Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake when I first played around with the 2014-2016 In Colors. I created this card using the same combination of colors. If you like this combination, too, feel free to save this:
- Always Something. Don’t you love this sentiment? Do you recognize it? It’s found another free item you can earn during this year’s Sale-a-Bration – the You Brighten My Day stamp set. While this sentiment pairs perfectly with the Note Tag punch, I masked the edges of the image so I could crop it with circles. Here’s a peek at this stamp set (another item you can earn with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration):
