On this card, I used the Heart-2-Heart dies (butterflies) with new Sweet Blush patterned paper. I also stamped the Background Basics: Inspiration in white and then embossed with white embossing powder. I painted over the top of the embossing with Soft Stone ink. To do this, I put a few drops of the Stone Stone ink refill in a paint tray and mixed in a touch of water, then with a large flat brush I painted over the embossed stamping. The deeper of color you paint on, the more the white words will stand out. Sorry my pictures turned out a bit light, but the Soft Stone is a little bit darker than it looks here.
You might also notice the new Soft Stone patterned paper? SO pretty. I thought the top needed a tad bit of a darker color, so I added some black stitches and a strip of Smokey Shadow patterned paper.
Next up is a flat card (except for the pearl). I stamped the BB: Inspiration in black, then stamped a Heart-2-Heart #10 butterfly in Summer Sunrise ink, with a Pure Poppy heart stamped in the center and Pure Poppy antennae. Since this particular Background Basics:Inspiration stamp said "happy" and "laugh", I decided to use the older "Happy Trails" stamp set with it and add a birthday saying in Pure Poppy ink with a butterfly trail in Sweet Blush ink.
I added a Heart Border die with Pure Poppy patterned paper and Smokey Shadow patterned paper. I like the block saying - reminds me of subway art, which is so popular right now.
