Stampin' Up! Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP and sponge brayers

Hello crafty ones, time to share some more cards with you :)

These were two cards I made last weekend when I was on a crafting weekend away with some friends. I wanted to try out the Stampin' Up! Irresistibly Floral DSP and new sponge brayers. The paper comes already clear embossed with a pattern (there are 12 sheets in 12x12" size, 2 sheets of 6 different patterns and only 3 are floral). I used one of the 3 non-floral patterns on this one. These 3 patterns would be perfect for masculine cards.

I used the sponge brayers to apply Dapper Denim ink, and then used copper embossing on the greeting. This greeting stamp is called Stylised Birthday and is a single stamp. I really like it!

For this next card, I used two ink colours: Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo. The copper emboosing looks reat with these colours too.

There are so many fabulous looks you can get with this paper. I would really recommend you having a play with it. With the sponge brayers, you get 4 sponges and 2 brayer handles in the box too. You can check out everything I've used on these cards using the links at the end of this post.
