Uninked Stamps

Hey peeps! How are you all on this glorious spring day?! I am so excited that all of my perennials are coming up!! That is such an awesome thing to see after winter isn't it?

Over at the Use It Tuesday Challenge Bog they have a new challenge going, it's a challenge to use an Un-inked Stamp. Wow was this a wake up call! I have tonnnsssss of un-inked stamps lol how did this happen?! I've had these real dainty butterfly stamps by Martha Stewart that I've been dyin to use with white heat embossing powder. The stamps have so much detail in them I love it! I love the white powder on richly colored paper, it's an amazing contrast.

Have you seen these little felt bows by Prima? They are sooo cute and just the right amount of added oomph to a lonely ole corner ;)

 I kind of wanted it to look like the butterflies were "fluttering" across the page, and Im not sure if I achieved that, but Im glad I used more than just 1 of the stamps. Now ladies, there are no rules while creating, so if you have a stamp set that you adore, and there's more than 1 stamp in the set that you love, by all means use them! Dont be scared ;) Sometimes when you group the same type of thing together in a cluster or group it packs a powerful punch. So go get in your stash, pick something out that-at-one-time-you-just-had-to-have, and get it dirty!!

Go check out the Use It Tuesday Blog to see what the fabulous DT has made for some inspiration!! Thanks for hangin!!
