It is official my love affair with the Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper rages on as does the Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration promotion. It continues until 31 March and this DSP is available as part of the SAB promotion where you can choose a “Free” product from the SAB catalogue for every £45 you spend on Stampin’ Up products, Bargain!!. So I have decided to do a mini series showcasing the different looks that you can get with the Irresistibly Yours DSP and many different combinations of ink colours. There will be six cards in all and may be a small bonus at the end for those that stick around!
So on to the first card, I went straight in for a 3 colour combination on this piece of Irresistibly Yours DSP consisting of Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron and Lost Lagoon Classic Inks. I used my trusty Stamping sponges and sponged the colours on blending as I go, I have found going in a circular motion helps with blending.
My card base is a piece of A4 Pistachio Pudding cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm) and scored at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) to which I adhered my piece of colourful Irresistibly Yours DSP which measures 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm).
I made a tag embellishment with the One Tag Fits all Stamp Set and the co-ordinating Note Tag Punch, both available from the Spring and Summer Catalogue, which will also be a consistent feature in this series. I double layered my tag with some So Saffron cardstock and Whisper White cardstock punched out with the Note Tag Punch. I stamped my image on the Whisper White cardstock twice and cut one out and popped it up on some Stampin Dimensionals and when all coloured I adhered this to the So Saffron cardstock which I also stamped with the tag border stamp from the One Tag Fits all stamp set. I used some Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon to finish this and adhered this to my card front. As a finishing touch I embellished with some Basic Pearl Jewels and moved on to the inside of my card.
I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring the same as my DSP above and on to which I stamped two sentiments out of the SAB Big Day Stamp set and the cake slice image from the front of my card.
So that’s it for the first card so go grab yourself some inks and get colourful, see you tomorrow!
