cards, Sale-A-Bration


I can’t believe how quickly the past few months have gone with Sale-A-Bration.  There has been so many great products that are going to be sadly missed.  What has been your favourite???  I have already mentioned a few of my favourites with ‘Lotus Blossom’ and ‘Big Day’.  Then we had some fantastic new additions. Sadly not much time to play with them but the papers were gorgeous.

Here are some projects to share with you courtesy of Stampin’ Up! I don’t know who the original creators are so I do apologise but these showcase some of the gorgeous products we have enjoyed during Sale-A-Bration.

I was playing around with the ‘Irresistibly Yours’ DSP the other day.  If you are not familiar with this paper already it comes in 12″x12″ sheets.  There are 6 different designs and you get  2 of each. Each design has a glossy like pattern on the sheet which is like it is clear embossed.  You can simply add your colour either by sponging or brayering.  Gently wipe off the card with a tissue which removes the ink from the embossed parts leaving a gorgeous coloured pattern.  You can create your own patterned paper to match the colour of your project. I had these little pieces just for a card size and thought I would make up some cards using them.  Here they are for you.

Firstly, using Crisp Canteloupe card and ink and stamp sets ‘Papillion Potpourri’ and ‘Hello There’. A little Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper was punched using the 1 3/8″ Circle punch and this was layered under the “For You” greeting although that is a little hard to see. I also stamped the smaller image from ‘Daydream Medallions’ and cut it with the matching die. I added some Crisp Canteloupe Thick Baker’s Twine to finish this card.


This one was in Marina Mist and using ‘Something For Baby’ and ‘Itty Bitty Banners’ stamp sets.  Finished off with some Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine.  Gotta love that tie!!! 😉


This is probably my favourite.  This is Lost Lagoon.  I added some splodges from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ and the greeting is from ‘Teeny Tiny Sentiments’. Then simply a sparkly butterfly cut from the Silver Foil Sheets and then some Lost Lagoon Satin ribbon to finish off.


So have you got your ‘Irresistibly Yours’ DSP yet?? It is one of the Free choices during Sale-A-Bration with your $90 order.  There are so many other great Sale-A-Bration products if this Paper is not your choice.

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!
