Happy Wednesday everyone. We had snow and bitter cold weather here in central Ohio so I decided to make cards that took my mind off of the cold weather. I found the original of this card on Pinterest, I apologize to the creator as I can’t find it now when I need to give credit. Whoever you are, I appreciated your work enough to recreate.
This card takes advantage of the Irresistibly Yours DSP. If you are just starting to read paper crafting blogs you might not have heard of this paper, but it comes as white with white embossing in several different designs. The paper is meant to be colored so that the embossing shows through. Best of all, this paper is one of the free items you could choose with a $50 purchase from Stampin UP, part of the Sale-A-Bration event through March 31.
In previous posts, I’ve shown how you can color this paper with a sponge dauber and ink pad. For today’s card though, I used my Brayer with Pacific Point ink. A Brayer is a rubber wheel with a handle. You ink it on the ink pad rolling it back and forth, then roll it on your paper, a super quick way to ink up this paper and get great saturation. You can continue to roll and re-ink as many times as you want to get the depth of color you desire. Once you have it inked, pull out your handy paper napkin or paper towel, or tissue and rub the ink off of the embossed area to get the white to show through again.
I love the combination of this particular pattern paper with the Painted Petals stamp set. I even carried the stamp set to the inside with three little flowers and the Happy Birthday sentiment from Butterfly Basics.
