Simply Sunday … You’re the Best!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have a cute card for you, and as promised I have used the “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Paper and the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set.

Yesterday you saw Brenda’s swap that showcased sponging on the “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Paper and I have shared in a previous post (Click here to view) how to create a watercolor background with your Aqua Painters. You can also brayer this fabulous paper but …

today I’m going to show you how simple it is to use your markers and just color!

Using my Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo markers (the original Stampin’ Write markers) nothing fancy … I simply colored the first 3 spaces with Pool Party, the next 3 with Bermuda Bay, the next 3 with Island Indigo, then back to Bermuda Bay until all the lines were filled in.

Then I used a “baby wipe” to clean off my specialty paper …. I wiped off the excess in the direction of the lines. Quick & gentle … just enough to get the excess ink off, it also helps soften any lines from my coloring.

Using my 3 colors from light to dark also created the “Ombre” look… a very popular technique!

I did team up the Sale-a-bration items with the Bundle of the “Petal Potpourri” stamp set and coordinating “Flower Medallion” punch that is in the Occasions catalog – page 23. If Stampin’ Up! bundles it … I purchase it, I love the 15% savings!! Gives me more money to buy more goodies!

To finish off my flower, I added some of our Dazzling Details glitter adhesive (glitter glue) to the center. I think it adds just enough glitter without being over powering.

How simple was that!? Just image all the color combinations you can do with this simple technique. This paper is amazing … you don’t want to miss out! Our Sale-a-bration period ends March 31st and all you need to do is make a purchase of $50 before shipping & handling and pick the Irresistibly Yours paper for your Sale-a-bration freebie!
