Have you used the Stampin’ Spritzers to color the Irresistibly Yours Paper yet? Using a Stampin’ Spritzer with ink refill mixed with rubbing alcohol is a very quick way to color the Irresistibly Yours Paper. You can even get multiple colors on one piece of paper. Don’t miss the video below showing you how to make this card.

Rubber Stamping Technique: Stampin' Spritzer To Color

Stampin’ Spritzer With Ink Refill

Prepare your Stampin’ Spritzer by filling it with rubbing alcohol and ink refill of your choice. Use rubbing alcohol with the higher alcohol concentration (like the 91%) and more or less ink refill depending on how dark or light you want your paper. You will also need some type of scrap paper or spray box.

Rubber Stamping Technique: Stampin' Spritzer With Ink Refill

Inking With The Stampin’ Spritzer

Once you have filled your Stampin’ Spritzer, start spraying your paper. Spray the areas you want darker with more ink. Let dry. I just used one color, but you can use multiple colors to get a variety of colors. I wiped off the excess ink to help the pattern pop through.

Have you been wondering what you can do with the Irresistibly Yours paper? It looks like it is all white, but if you look close you will see a glossy pattern and it is so wonderful to use with your handmade cards. There are so many fun ways to get that pattern to show up and today I am sharing 2 different ways. 

What Can You Do With The Irresistibly Yours Paper

Sponge With Ink

The background paper here is the Irresistibly Yours paper (#138635) with the flower pattern. You can sponge over the center with a dauber inked with Hello Honey to pop out the flowers.  Use a circular motion when you apply the ink and wipe with a piece of toweling to pop out the glossy flowers. The bird image is from the A Happy Thing Sale-A-Bration set and is colored with Blendabilities.

Spritz With Ink

You can also reveal that fun pattern with a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with ink refill and rubbing alcohol. I mixed the Strawberry Slush ink refill with high alcohol content rubbing alcohol and sprayed the upper left corner of the polka dot paper. Using rubbing alcohol in place of water will help the paper dry more quickly. The tag is done with images from the Sale-A-Bration Big Day set.

You can make adorable Treat Bags with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die, but did you know you can also make fun envelopes?  Stampin’ Up! shared this fun idea and the recent Leadership conference and I could not wait to try it out. 

Handmade Birthday Card in A Mini Treat Bag

You can easily create and cut out balloons with the Celebrate Today set and coordinating Balloon Thinlits Dies. Cutting out the round balloons would be very difficult, but with the die it is a breeze. It is such a fun look to have the balloons cut out and added to the top. 

Handmade Birthday Card Made With The Mini Treat Bag Die

Because the front of the envelope is so decorated you really don’t need much for the inside. The Birthday Bash paper is perfect for the inside and looks great peeking through the front. Don’t forget to add the star die when you are running the Mini Treat Bag die through the Big Shot and you will have the fun window.

Don’t miss the video below showing you exactly how you can make this fun handmade birthday card. (You may have to come to my blog if you are seeing this post in a reader).

With the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies and the Zoo Babies stamp set you can create such beautiful cards and envelopes you will not be able to wait to give valuable gift cards to the new parents. Pull the colors from the Lullaby Designer paper for quick coordination and beautiful projects.

Gift Card Handmade Baby cards

The card base is a piece of 3 3/4″ X 5″ Whisper White card stock folded in half. You can cut the Whisper White card stock just larger than the Zoo Baby and the sentiment to layer on the front. The mat is from coordinating card stock just 1/8″ larger than the animal layer. You can decorate the focal image with a couple of banners punched out with the Banner Punch.

Handmade baby gift card with envelope

Use the Gift Card Envelope die to cut the envelope from Lullaby Designer Series Paper. To hold the envelope closed and add decoration to the envelope, add a 2″ X 6″ piece of coordinating card stock wrapped around the envelope and a length of ribbon wrapped around and tied into a bow. Do not glue the belly band to the envelope so the recipient can slide off the envelope to open.
