Irresistibly Yours Butterfly

One of my favorite techniques is emboss resist...heat emboss an image on light colored cardstock using a light embossing powder and then using a sponge or brayer add darker color inks over the top of  it to reveal the design. The Irresistibly Yours DSP that is FREE during Sale-a-Bration this year has a glossy design that is wonderful as is...OR you can use the same technique described above to make those fabulous designs pop like magic...I LOVE it!

Check out my quick 'n easy & bright 'n cheery card using the Irresistibly Yours DSP.

The multicolored strip that the butterfly is resting on is one of the 6 designs included in the Irresistibly Yours pack. I sponged it with Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral inks. I stamped the word HELLO three times using Black Memento Ink and the Hello Life stamp set. I must say...I am really loving the photopolymer stamp sets for making it so quick & easy to line things up. Using wood mount or clear mount rubber I would for sure had to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the words up.

The butterfly was cut from Whisper White card stock using the Butterfly Thinlits and then sponged with Bermuda Bay and  Black Memento Ink.

Hope your day is bright & cheery! It is supposed to be a balmy 35 here in Michigan today. Here's hoping we see the sun!
