I know you remember that Sale-a-bration is going on right now (purchase $50 in product) and select a FREEBIE from the Sale-a-bration mini catalog--stamps, designer paper, ribbon, buttons, and,,,,drum roll...Blendabilities!!!
Each week I'll be sharing a featured SAB Freebie and this week is the truly awesome Irresistibly Yours Designer paper.
Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper #138635
This paper is so much more than meets the eye! The glossy designs look great alone or will "resist" ink, making them really fun for techniques. Try it with spritzers, brayers, sponges and daubers (one of my favorite coloring techniques as many of you already know)
You'll find that this paper can be used with any style, from bold and bright to elegant and subtle. Try a technique evening with your friends where everyone can play with this paper and fall in love with it like I have!
This paper doesn't show well in the mini (how can you show white on white, right?)--it appears to be gray and white--but it's really a cleared embossed pattern on the white paper. It is relatively stiff and can be used with your box board too!
Here's my recommendation (before we get to the photos of some projects designed with the free paper....purchase your inks and coloring tools (see below for some recommendations on these) to reach $50 or more (you can get 2 packs of this designer paper if you purchase $100 in product)--then as your free selection--choose the Irresistably Yours Designer paper.
I'm sorry to say, you cannot purchase this paper--you can only get it for free!! It's a rough life, isn't it?
OK, here are a couple of projects I've completed with this paper...let me know what you think.
The above is the full card using a dauber and Melan Mambo Classic Ink....you can see the embossed image on both the colored part and the uncolored part...below I've just tried to capture an angled view so you can get a better up close view.
Here is another card design on which I used the Brayer and Daffodil Delight Classic Ink
