Irresistibly Yours

2015_02_04IMG_6902I needed a  sympathy card and wanted to use some of my new stuff so today’s post is what I came up with.  I started out by brayering the Free DSP-Irresistibly Yours #138635 paper with 3 shades of blue ink.  The DSP is white with white embossing so that as you colorize the embossed image resists the ink to reveal the pattern. I used a paper towel to buff the image.

I stamped a flower in Black ink from the now retired Stampin up Watercolor Wonder stamp set. I added 3 pieces of the 1/8″ black taffeta ribbon #119261.  I added a beautiful butterfly cut from the all new Butterfly Thinlits Die #137360 and added rhinestone accents.  I used the Stampin Up blendabilities to colorize the rhinestones.  Warning the Butterfly is an intricate piece so you will need to add a piece of wax paper between the cardstock and the die to make it easier to remove the little detail pieces.  Also the Butterfly Thinlit is available as a bundle and save item with the Butterfly Basics stamp set #138316.  You can save 15% when purchasing them together as 1 item number (wood: #139322,Clear#139323 & polymer #138865)

The beautiful Irresistibly Yours DSP is available in the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog as a free item with every $50 spent you can select an item for free.  The Sale-a-bration campaign is ongoing thru 31 March and is a great time to stock up and get free goods too!
