Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP! This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am focusing on the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper. You get 12 12×12 sheets: 2 each of 6 single-sided designs. These white-on-white designs really come to life when the paper is inked.
Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!
These two cards may well be the fastest cards I have ever made. I used the new Sponge Brayer from Stampin’ Up (found on page 172 in the annual catalog). To achieve these beautiful, soft results, all you do is roll the brayer in the ink a few times and roll in on your paper. You get the emboss resist without the fuss of having to emboss yourself! You just need to use a tissue to wipe away the excess ink from your DSP after you sponge it with the brayer. The white glossy patterns on the Irresistibly Floral paper resists the ink.
I chose to use the 2015 – 2017 In Colors for my cards. I sponged the first card with Watermelon Wonder. After I wiped it with a tissue, I adhered it to my Tip Top Taupe card base and made a banner using the Banners for You Stamp Set and Bunch of Banners Framelits. I attached the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Basic Pearl Jewels.
I just washed my sponge brayer with water to clean off the ink and squeezed it dry. For my next card I was going for the ombre effect using mint macaron ink on the diamond Specialty DSP. You can play around and get all different effects. I added organza ribbon and Basic Pearl Jewels and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sayings with Mint Macaron ink for a tone on tone look. Simple works!
Here are some great samples that are in the annual catalog (page 126) using the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP, Falling Flowers stamp set and the matching May Flowers Framelits.

Wickedly fun paper! Beautiful cards and I love how you did the ombré effect. Don’t have the foam brayer yet but it looks easier to use than the other one. Enjoy the day!
It is MUCH easier Mary Ann! I like it!
Jeanie, your cards are spectacular! I have this paper, used it when I first got it and now I have to pull it out again! Love the pearls!!!!
Your samples are absolutely beautiful. I, too have the paper but have been too intimidated to use it. Perhaps your post gave me the push I need….thanks!
I have also found this paper to be easy to use and makes a beautiful card. I like your simple, easy designs, Jeanie.
