The Irresistible Designer Series Papers make it easy to create emboss resist backgrounds quickly! The paper is already embossed, so all you do is add colour! The card featured here uses the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. If you are shopping before the end of the year, the Fancy Frost Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue is part of the Year End Closeout sale, as is the Colour Me Irresistible Paper. For the featured card, colour was added using the Sponge Brayers with Night of Navy and Perfect Plum inks – which are also the colours of cardstock used for the card. Why make things difficult? Stick to a couple of colours that work together well and don’t complicate it too much!! The Perfect Plum was concentrated in the centre of the paper, and the Night of Navy was concentrated more on the edges. Add a tag with a sentiment (in this case, a sympathy saying from the set Better Together, in clear or wood mount) and you have a card ready to send.

As the year draws to a close, you’re probably spending a bit of time (when you can find it….) reflecting on the year that has passed, and looking forward to the year to come. Thank you for being a YamStamps reader in the past year, and I look forward to bringing you more ideas and information in the coming year. I hope that you have a happy, healthy and creative new year, and selfishly hope that YamStamps will be part of that!! Please join me in a class – either online or in person – in 2017!!
