I can’t believe it’s March already! That means you only have another month to take advantage of Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-bration. The products used on this card were the first two I knew I wanted to get. The Lotus Blossom set is beautiful, and the Irresistably Yours designer series paper is so fun. It’s all the magic of “emboss resist” without the work.
Lotus Blossom (and, yes, I know it’s a water flower, but I love it in yellows!) is a 3-step stamp. I stamp the smallest image first in the darkest ink, then the larger two in lighteter inks. For this, I used Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight. Of course, you can use only one or two ink colors (depending on how dark the original color is) and just stamp off one or two times to get the lighter shades. There are even little numbers on the stamps so you’ll know which one to use.
The designer series paper has a pattern on each piece – and it’s ready for you to add color to. Just spritz, sponge, use a brayer – any way you want to add ink – and watch the magic. The pattern will resist the ink and stay white. After it dries, you’ll want to wipe over the pattern with a paper towel to remove any excess ink.
The Daffodil Delight ribbon is some of the 1/4″ cotton ribbon. It’s so soft and easy to work with. Love it!
Hope you’re having a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.
