Another March Stamping Class Card

I'm just loving using the Impressabilities!!! I've used them lots of different ways, and this card shows one way.

I embossed the More Mimi paper with the Circles Impresies Die and then sanded the paper using a sanding block. That brought out the white core. Fun! I "messied" it up a bit by inking it DTP with Burnt Umber.

It's easy to emphasize one word by stamping it on colored More Mimi paper and then cutting freehand. I like that touch. The sentiment is from Blessings to You, a Level B Hostess Set.

The butterfly was done using the "kissing" technique. How does it sound to say we learned to kiss at stamping class?!?!?! :-)

We inked the solid butterfly from Butterfly Bits using Perfect Plumeria VersaMagic ink. With it lying on the table face up, we usesd another butterfly stamp with texture/lines and NO INK to stamp onto the inked up one. The second stamp *removed* the ink where it touched. Then we stamped, punched and added white Souffle pen.

Other supplies include Aspen Cardstock, Brown Cardstock Strips, circle and scallop punches.
There's still one more so check back! I'm saving the best for last (at least in my humble opinion).
