It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a Color Challenge!
For this week's challenge, I pulled out the free Sale-a-Bration choice...Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. I've been playing with it this week and have to say...I'm in love! Here's why:
- It's thicker than our "normal" Designer Series Paper
- It's a white paper that is "printed" with a glossy white pattern
- Tons of coloring options including stamping, sponging, brayering and more!
- 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 designs in 12" x 12" (see below)
- It's a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice - ends March 31st
Dawn's Tips for Coloring Irresistibly Yours DSP
- Stamp fern image a couple times with Blackberry Bliss onto 4" x 2-3/4" piece of Irresistibly Yours DSP.
- First just dab off excess ink from the glossy patterns using a paper towel. Then wipe the rest of the ink off with a more firm hand. I did end up using a little bit a moisture to get it all off.
- Using sponge dauber to add Rich Razzleberry ink to color the rest of the paper. Tip: pull off ink from the sponge onto scratch paper. This helps in starting with a light touch of color (you can always add more color, but you can't take it away). I used a "swirly" motion to add the color.
- Wipe off excess color
- Then sponge edges with Blackberry Bliss ink.
- Wipe off excess color.
Do you see something new?
Something Borrowed Embellishments: a perfect little touch. Would also make a nice necklace and matching earrings!
In Color Accessory Pack: a new Sale-a-Bration choice of Thick Bakers Twine (shown) and buttons.
It was tons of fun playing with the Irresistibly Yours paper. And there's no need to resist adding it to your next order, as it's free with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration.
Enjoy! ~Dawn O

As Pat S recently shared,
The very first time I stamped I attended a Mother-Daughter Girl Scout event. I was amazed! I started going to stamping workshops with my girls, eventually joining a monthly group. Everything I learned I adapted to projects with my daughters and then with both my Girl Scout troops. Now that I have cut my hours back at work and we have an empty nest, being a demonstrator seemed the perfect thing to do! I had been utilizing Dawns site for a while so when choosing an upline she was my first choice!!
My community of STARS are located all over the United States. We have occasional local meetings (Twin Cities area), but mostly we gather online. From sharing creative ideas and tips, swaps, business tips and more...we have a fabulous and supportive community that is looking forward to giving you a warm welcome!
Prefer a "local" connection? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try to connect you with a STAR who is more local to you.
