Stamp Club March 2013

We needed a girly card tonight to balance the masculine one, so we went all out with pink (Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink) and bling!  I love the way the butterfly from Bloomin' Marvelous looks in the Elegant Butterfly punch! 
 The card, above and below, use the Nature Walk set.  the Natural Trim ribbon from the Spring catalog gives it a nice rustic look.  The colors are Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, and Naturals Ivory.  The bird is stamped in Marina Mist.  A good masculine card to balance out the many, many flower cards I make!

 I shoed a few techniques to use with the Natural Composition Specialty Paper.  For the card, above, we rubbed Whisper White Craft ink on the paper and then rubbed the excess off with a paper towel.

Some other ideas are below.  On the left, I rubbed drops of reinker directly on the paper with a sponge dauber.  Then I rubbed with a paper towel.  On the right, I used markers to color in the design.  Then I rubbed it with paper towel to get the excess ink off the embossed areas.

The Natural Composition Specialty Paper is great to use as-is, too!
Happy Stamping!
