This year’s Sale-A-Bration catalog is THIS BEST! I have fallen in love with the Specialty Designer Series Paper Irresistibly Yours. [yours free with a $50 order] It’s so cool, it is a Whisper White base that is clear embossed with six different designs. See grid below for images.
Today’s post is one of these designs featuring random clear embossed flowers. When my order was delivered I quickly ripped open this package of Specialty Designer Series Paper and pulled this sheet out and knew I should give the oldie but goodie “emboss resist” a go. You won’t believe this, but I started with Crisp Cantaloupe ink and rubbed my sponge in a circle randomly, but not too heavily, and then with another sponge filled in with So Saffron ink. The So Saffron ink warmed everything up.
The card base starts with Calypso Coral, then I layered Mossy Meadow beneath the sponged SDSP and popped them with Dimensionals. The SDSP does have an embossed gloss to it which I really like, but I felt it needed a bit more sparkle. Hello…….Lol! I added severak Itty Bitty Accents Flower punched with Dazzling Details Glimmer paper. I also wanted to use the adorable Calypso Coral Pompom Trim (available in the Occasions Catalog). I then thought wouldn’t it be fun to cut them apart and make them the center of the flowers. OMGosh! [TIP: After I cut them apart I pinched them lengthwise then trimmed part of the Pompom away so when they were glue dotted to the flower they wouldn’t be so tall.] LOVE IT! Then, I cut “happy” from the Hello You Thinlits Set in Dazzling Details Glimmer and Calypso Coral. I glued them together with the Calypso Coral slightly offset to give a shadow effect. I really like how the offset makes the “happy” pop. Finally, I finished it with a “Birthday” banner from Crazy For You.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have a sparkly Wednesday.
