Great Friend and great fun!

With all of the fantastic promotions for the occasions mini, I have been going to town with all my new Occasions Mini toys! :) Plus, I am a super huge fan of beautiful butterflies, so Great Friend is now one of my favorite stamp sets. My stampin' heart is all a-flutter! To give my greetings extra depth, I used both Baja Breeze and Basic Gray ink. To combine the two colors on the same stamped image, I first stamped the greetings in Baja Breeze ink, and then whipped out my handy-dandy basic gray marker and colored directly on my rubber stamp in the sections I wanted to add some extra "umph!" to. I stamped a the leaf image in the background using basic gray ink on the basic gray cardstock. This tone-on-tone stamping adds a little extra texture, without being overbearing. Almost everything I used on this card is available in the Occasions Mini catalog, and Stampin' Up! is offering a fantastic promotion for items in the Mini: SALE: Choose any item in the "Under $10" section (p. 208) of the Idea Book & Catalog with a $40 purchase from the Occasions Mini.
