I have just discovered the ‘Irresistibly Yours’ DSP in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  I had fun creating with it the other day.  I found this card on Splitcoaststampers.  I loved the bright colours and just had to copy it.


I used Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.  To colour the paper I sponged the ink picking it up from the inkpad with the sponge.  Rather than dabbing with the sponge though I rubbed in a circular motion.  I think that gives a smoother coverage of ink rather than it looking blotchy. Once you ink it then rub over the paper with a tissue and it will wipe off the ink over the embossed areas and give it a shine. For this card the paper is teamed with the gorgeous butterfly die available now in the Occasions Catalogue and I backed this with some Whisper White card to make it stand out.  The greeting is from the Buttefly Basics stamp set.

The ‘Irresistibly Yours’ DSP contains 12 sheets (2 each of 6 designs) that are single sided. They each have a glossy white pattern. You can apply ink to the paper by sponge, brayer or directly with the inkpad.  You could colour with Blendabilities too if you like. The embossed like pattern resists the ink leaving a gorgeous pattern. If you haven’t seen it yet or really paid attention to it, check it out on page 15 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. Here are the patterns you will find in the pack.  It’s great to create some beautiful patterned paper to the colour you would like and to make it look embossed and you haven’t had to drag out the embossing powder and Heat Tool!


Thanks for visiting today,
