Team Tuesday with Ilina - Color Layering on Dark card stock

Hi Stampers!
Happy Tuesday and welcome to another Team Tuesday. Ilina's here today and I am sharing few cards featuring the stamping on dark card stock technique. Little white ago I made a video with the same technique but different stamps and inks, so I have that one below if you are wondering how this technique is done in "real life" for your reference. 

For my cards today I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Nasturtium set along with Prayers, Hello and Thanks Stamp and Cut sets. I started by stamping the first layer of the stamp (flower and leaves) with Unicorn white ink, once it was completely dry I stamped it again with Soft Pink/Butter Bar ink. You will need to make sure that you don't remove your stamp from your MISTI before stamping the second time (when you use colored ink). 
After my panels were done, I stamped the sentiments using Versamark ink and embossed with White Embossing powder, then stamped the accompanying sentiment using pink/red inks. All supplies are linked at the bottom of this post.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you are inspired to do something creative today

Team Tuesdays with Susan

I am Susan Wymer and I am delighted to be a member of the My Sweet Petunia design team! I love my MISTI - full confession - I have 3. I have a pretty significant tremor in my left hand and the MISTI has made it possible for me to stamp straight again. My blog is: www.stampbackandrelax.blogspot.com and I am Susan_Wymer on Instagram if you want to see more of my cards. Full disclosure I am also on the Craftin Desert Divas Design Team but I made this video simply because I love this Hello Beautiful stamp set and the technique of coloring with pigment inks.

Here is the card I made for today.

I used the technique of stamping with white pigment ink and coloring in with different colors of pigment ink on kraft cardstock to achieve this soft look. The set I used is Hello Beautiful from Craftin Desert Divas. It was just released this April and was designed by Anna Kovalenko. I adore this set and this is the fifth card I have made with it. It is a must have! I used Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment ink and Avery Elle pigment inks but any pigment inks will work for this technique. In fact, I think Distress Oxide inks would work great as well and give a nice vintage look to a card. I may just give that a try in a few days. Below is my You Tube video.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you liked  the card!

Lift Me Up With MISTI

Do you ever go through phases of the same thing over and over?  I get into food phases all the time.  I go through periods where I have the same snack or dessert everyday.  Not long ago, it was to mandarine oranges for dessert.  Right now my food phase is three to four Oreo Cookies for dessert.

My crafting phase right now are bright colors.  I made this card using the same colors that were on my Geometric Background card.  I am not sure if it is a phase or if I was just too lazy to find another color combination.  Either way, I have a cute card to share.

Check out the video below on how I made this card.  Be sure to leave me a comment on what your phase is, crafting or food.

Thanks for stopping by!

Team Tuesday with Stephanie - Sunny Studio

First ... big news ... the winner of the March Collaboration with Joy Clair is ...

Andrea Hastilow

Andrea - set-up an account at mysweetpetunia.com and then e-mail in your account information to hello@mysweetpetunia.com letting us know you won the Joy Clair prize (if you already have an account, just send the e-mail with your account information).

Now, for today's card ...

When I discovered the fun layering stamps at Sunny Studio, I knew they would be perfect for creating with my MISTI.  Today I'm using Holiday Style Stamps and coordinating Holiday Style dies.

I originally fell in love with the bell stamped in shades of grey to make a perfect silver bell.  

I decided to see if I could find a color combination to make gold bells ... and this is what I used ... Ranger Archival Acorn, Gina K. Designs Kraft, and Catherine Pooler Shea Butter inks.

I stamped the three images that layer to make the bell in the three colors so you could see what they look like before you layer.

All layering stamps are different, but for this set I found it easier to line things up if I stamped in the order of darkest to lightest.  

Here is the image after stamping the first and second stamp.  The star on the top left is the key to lining-up the images.

And here's how it looks after you add the gold (aka Shea Butter).  That stamp lines-up using the three blank squares (which makes it look like light is reflecting off the bell).

Next I stamped the pine branches on which I wanted to hang my bells.  I started by stamping the branch in VersaFine Clair Shady Lane.

Next I used VersaFine Clair Rain Forest ink and used the corner of the ink pad to try to just ink the limbs in the middle of the branches to add some depth of color (a tip from Jennifer Maguire, although she used markers).

Here is the branch after the second stamping.

Here you can see the difference between the two-inked branch at the top and the single-inked branch at the bottom.

Here are some of my finished bells.  The bottom three used the color combination I described.  The top two used slightly different colors ... there are lots of possibilities.

This stamp set has so many great details ... there are even a stamp & die cut for the little hangers for the bell ornament.  

There is also a lovely three-step layered bow that I wanted to attach to the top of my bells.  I had seen the bell stamped in Reds (traditional holiday color), so I decided to go non-traditional and stamp it in shades of blue.

I used three shades of AlteNew Ink, again starting with the darkest color Desert Night.

For the second color, Dusk, I found it worked better if I stamped off once and used second-generation stamping.  The way I do that with my MISTI is just to press a piece of paper against the stamp on the lid to remove ink and then close the MISTI to stamp.

Finally, I finished with Ocean Waves for the solid color of the bow.

After die cutting my bows, stamping my sentiment, and attaching everything to my card base, here is the finished design.  I stamped my sentiment in the darkest blue Desert Night ink.

I used 1/4 of a 3-D Glue Dot to attach the bows to my bells (the dots are easy to cut into smaller pieces using Teflon scissors).

Sunny Studio has lots of fun layering stamps which are perfect to use with your MISTI.
