Team Tuesday with Jeanne

Hi! Jeanne here today.
I have an easy technique card to share today using my Mini MISTI.

Products used (see links below):
white glue
cardstock (white and light blue)
craft sponge 
inks (Distress inks or dye inks)
Nuvo Glitter Drops Golden Sunset
black fine pen

I used a fun technique called Distressed Glue to make my background. 
Sponge at least two colors of lighter ink on your cardstock. I used Ranger Distress Mustard
 Seed and Twisted Citron for my project. You can add ink in any pattern you like.

Spread white glue onto your sponged panel. Leave some spaces open. You can make a
pattern or just smear it on. I squirted a few lines straight from the bottle and smeared it
 across my paper with a scrap piece of cardstock.

Once your glue is dry (mine took about an half hour) sponge a darker color over the panel. 
I used Ranger Distress Wild Honey for my card. Wipe off extra ink.

Using my MISTI Stamp Tool I stamped the sunflower (Sunflower Duo
and  colored and restamped to bring out the details in the outline (always leave 
your stamps in the MISTI until after you've colored! 

I also stamped the Bless Your Heart sentiment from Butter My Butt (set of 8)

Here's a closer look at my finished card.

Team Tuesday with Giovana

Hello friends! Giovana here today with an Anniversary card!
I have a little story to share with you before I talk about the card I have for you.
I was asked if I could make an Anniversary card, details I got was "color blue", then it was on me, so I was almost done with the card, just needed to stamp "Happy Anniversary" and guess what??? I could not find a stamp with that sentiment!! And let me tell you, I have like 3K stamps, lol, printing was not an option because my printer is a headache and never works when I need it. So I was starting to panic, I needed to finish before the kids wake up from their nap, hehehe, well, then I thought (picture a super bright cloud and  a BLING moment) "I have some old stamp in the closet?!
So, I started to look and look and I got a pile, HUGE pile and nothing and then BAM! I found A SET!! Just 1 set that had the "Happy Anniversary" saying!!
My heart was happy, I finished the card and the kids woke up!
End of this silly story, now back to the card ;)

Started stamping the Wide Watercolor Stripe background on a piece of white cardstock in Delicata Golden Glitz ink, set aside to dry. 
For this project I used my Original MISTI
 Stamp the beautiful floral image from Mondo Sakura Set in Memento Tuxedo Black
 Color image with markers, here I used Spectrum Noir Markers.
 After that, die-cut image with coordinated die.
 Stamp sentiment from By your side set on  stripes panel in Jet Black Stazon Ink.
 Stamp Happy Anniversary inside.

Finally, I added blue rhinestone and pearls to embellish the card.

Hope you  like it.
Have a fantastic day!!

Team Tuesday with Ceal

Hello everyone and welcome to Team Tuesday! 
It's Ceal here to share with you today using some of the newest products by Concord & 9th. 
I love the turnabouts that were developed especially for the Original MISTI by Concord & 9th. For my background I used their latest Star Turnabout Bundle. 
In case you have never used the turnabouts before there is a little learning curve. First you have to make a jig which is a 6x6 square, I just use the back of a 6x6 sheet of patterned paper. Using a ruler you draw a line from corner to corner and next you number the corners, this is not necessary but if you are called away you will be able to tell which turn you were on if you are doing more than one rotation. Then you place your jig in the Original Misti.

The next step is to align your stamp, all of the turnabout stamp sets have a diagram on the packaging on how to line it up so do not throw away the packaging. After you have lined your stamp up close the lid of the Misti and pick up the stamp. Place a card front size of cardstock in the center of the jig using removable adhesive and start your rotations. All turnabout stamps can be rotated up to 4 times to give you a background on an A2 size card front.

For the focal point I used the Shine On bundle also by Concord & 9th. In my opinion the Misti is a must have for stamping the shine background also. I cut the background die out of Coastal Cabana cardstock and then placed the negative in the Misti and placed the cutout in the negative space in order to stamp it where needed. I used silver glitter paper behind the stitched panel so the cut out stars would be silver and also for the word Shine. The Birthday Girl is from the Hooray stamp set by yep Concord & 9th.

Team Tuesday with Kia

Hello everyone, Kia here with you today to share a card I made that is a bit unusual for me. It has a different look, but in the end I do like it, and hope you will as well.
I started with my background. Using Color Burst in Ultramarine Blue I added the powder to Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper and spritzed with a fair amount of water. I would normally help with the movement, but I decided to let it go where it wanted and left it to dry.
In my original Misti I then stamped the Beautiful Flowers image using Versamark Ink, and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. As this stamp set does not have a coordinating die I cut the image with my ScanNCut, then proceeded to watercolour using Zig Clean Colour Brushes.

 I did several layers of colour until I was happy. Once completed I put the image back in my mini Misti and using the back side of the mouse pad I styled the back of the stamped image to add dimension. I flicked gold paint on the blue panel and stamped my sentiment  heat embossing with the gold embossing powder.
I added foam dots to the back before attaching to my card base, and finished my card by adding Nuvo Jewel Drops in Clear. You could also use the Sea Breeze drops.
 I did not want to add anything further, there is a lot going on with this card already, but it certainly was fun to do something different from your norm. I highly recommend it.
This is a close up of my finished card.

I have also done a video of this card and the process. It is a bit longer than what I would like ... I do take my time when I paint.
Thank you for visiting My Sweet Petunia today. I hope you have enjoyed the card I brought you today.

Team Tuesday with Ilina

Hi stampers, 
Ilina here today with a square card using the Gina K Wreath Builder set and stencil that is made to go with the MISTI. And makes stamping pretty wreaths a breeze. 
You only need few colors, my MISTI and the set! After you are done stamping the wreath, use glue pen to apply on the leaves and petals, once dry apply opal foil to add some extra interest. FInish it off with adding jewels in the center of the flowers! 
Quick and easy!

Alexandre Renke Blog Hop + Giveaway

When we met the Renke team at Creativation in January, we were just astonished at the beauty in their booth.

The brand was new to us, and their giant books of the stunning illustrations used on their paper was breathtaking, to say the least.

Add in a few warm, gracious women, and we knew it was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. So a conversation at that booth turned into a collaboration we've been excited about for months - a joint blog hop with their team.

What was so interesting about their products though is that while the stunning papers were recognizable as Renke from a mile away, she also has a WIDE range of style in her stamps and dies that is so charming - and also has something about it that makes it RENKEgnizable. :) We just love everything they do, here at My Sweet Petunia.

So I went in a different direction today with my card as a guest here on the blog. My blog post features the softer, watercolor look she's so known for, so I went full on modern for this card, with this adorable little boy and girl.

I had a stencil brushed background in my UFO pile that was graphic and bold and perfect for my black and white featured images. The stencil is this one, and the ink is Red Royal.

Then I stamped the little characters from Little Friends in black and cut them out. The Bubbles Frame dies double cut so you get that little frame around them. Love that. Then the sentiments from Best Wishes fit perfectly. Easy, simple, but graphic and fun.
