Rolling along with a swirl

Its been busy days here with the kiddies, and today a couple extras. We are kid sitting for two very active boys and I am about to take off for the park, but first...here is my card ( free make and take) from last nights Stamping Night Out. I hope you will join us soon. Its every Tuesday evening and you can drop in anytime its convenient. I am there from 5:30 - 9:30.

Ok, so this card is so easy. First the butterfly, have you ever heard of rolling? Its where I inked the butterfly in orange first, and then dipped the edges ( rolled the stamp) into red. It was so easy, and if you go light to darker it really doesnt do anything to dye ink pads. I dont mind a little dirty stampin! The trail I made by stamping the swirl onto scrap paper first, and then stamping onto my project. That is called stamping off, or second generation stamping.

I used my very fave stitch stamp, and after putting my saying on the card used the stitch to stretch the saying all the way over the edges of the card. Finally I used my stardust gelly pen to put some glittery silvery touches on my butterfly and trail. It makes a nice subtle difference in the light:)

Have a great day all...and stamp a little fun yourself!
