Sale-A-Bration Blog Tour 2015

Sale-A-Bration Blog Tour 2015

It’s time for another Blog Tour!  The theme this month is Sale-A-Bration.  What’s the first word that comes to your mind when you hear Sale-A-Bration?  “Free” maybe?  Everyone loves a chance to get free stamping goodies!

I decided to spend an hour this morning focused on the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper which you can received for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.Irresistibly Yours DSP & Crazy About You Stamp setThe Irresistibly Yours paper is so versatile!  The paper is white with while foil so you can color the paper (in many different ways, but for today I sponged the paper in these projects) and the foil will resist the ink.

I went a little more Shabby Chic with this card which is more in my comfort zone.  This particular design of the paper (with the white foil flowers) matches so beautifully with the new Spring Flowers embossing folder!

Irresistibly Yours DSP & Big Day stamp set

I went a little brighter with this card, sponging Coastal Cabana onto the diagonally striped foil paper.

Actually, this card is made up almost completely of free SAB items!  The Big Day stamp set which I used here,  as well as the Best Year Ever accessories (button and ribbon) are all items being offered for free during Sale-A-Bration!

Here is a close up look at the accessories and the sponged DSP.

Celebrate Today stamp set

Lastly, I went a little out of my Comfort Zone with this Celebrate Today card.  I am not one to use a lot of bold colors.

Celebrate Today

Here is a close up of those stars.  As you can see, when I sponged, I allowed some areas to be darker than others.  That is one of the advantages of sponging over some of the other coloring techniques you can use with this paper.

I hope you have enjoyed this look into an hour in my studio with the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP!  Come back to visit again soon!
