If you need some really versatile background paper for your Stampin' Up! cards and craft projects, try the Irresistibly Floral paper!! You can use a brayer, spritzer, sponge, brush, aqua painter or dauber to apply color to this paper, then wipe off with a kleenex or paper towel to reveal the beautiful glossy white designs!
Let's talk about some of the features of this card:
- I brayered Bermuda Bay ink onto the white floral pattern in the Irresistibly Yours pack, using the new Stampin' UP! Sponge Brayer (see photos below in this blog post)
- I used the heart & hope die cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and the flower die cuts from the Flourish Thinlits (find those all on page 194 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! catalog)
- I used a high-contrast color combo of Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder, White and Island Indigo. Not a likely combo, but love how it pops!
- Subtles Enamel Shapes are the perfect accent for the flower centers and the heart at the end of "hope"
- Tip: apply all the small and detailed thinlit pieces with either the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309) or the Multipurpose glue (#110755)
- The "popped up" 3-d banner die cut is from the Cupcake Cutouts die package, but you can also make your own with the Banner Triple punch

Have you tried the new Sponge Brayer? I'll be honest.. before I bought them, I THOUGHT these were going to be something I could just go buy at the dollar store, but TRULY these are really great quality, and they give a wonderfully smooth results when brayering ink onto the cardstock! Find them on page 180 in the Stampin' UP! 2016 catalog or HERE in my online store.
I purposefully applied more ink in the 2 opposite corners, and left the center lighter.. I really like this effect!
Above: I brayered Watermelon Wonder ink onto the polkadot pattern from the same paper pack and cut a 1" strip as a border for the left side of this card.
Isn't it so pretty how the white glossy patterns show through the ink? I love this paper! I hope you give it a try for your next crafting project!
