Hanging Jars

***Our team uses affiliate links at no charge to you!***

Hi there! Today, I am sharing a cute card that uses multiple stamps to create the scene. I used a Black Original MISTI to stamp the planter hanger, the flag, and the tree. With a MINI MISTI, I stamped the small flag on a piece of patterned paper (the same as the card background), then stamped the sentiment on the flag. After that, I fussy cut the flag and used the Precision Glue Press to adhere it in place. I love the Precision Glue Press for small items like this flag. I then put the layer inside of my Teal Original MISTI.  After layering an Alignment Grid on top of the layer, I arranged the jar stamps so they would "hang" from the pole's hooks. I stamped the jars on the grid, then made adjustments so they hung directly on the hook. I followed suit with the bird after that. 

Leaving the stamps on different MISTIS helps me to quickly create multiples.  If I make a mistake, I can easily restamp the card because the stamps are still in place.

Thanks so much for looking!

Team Tuesay with Pinkfresh Studio

(Our team uses affiliate links where possible.)  

Welcome to Team Tuesday!
it's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing a card using a Pinkfresh set that has coordinating stencils dies and even washi tape.
To make this card, I started with a white top folding A2 card base, a  couple white panels and a white piece of half sheet of cardstock cut to 8.5 x 5.5 
I placed half sheet of white cardstock in the Original MISTI and stamped the butterflies and leaves (which is all one stamp btw). I used distress inks and the coordinating stencil to color them and cut them out with the die which cuts them all at once. 
Next I used the Rounded and Braided rectangles die set to cut the decorative panel and I used a stitched rectangle die set to cut the other panel.
To finish the card, I added a die cut sentiment to the decorative panel.

Multiple Tags All At Once

 Today I am sharing the simplicity of stamping multiple projects all at the same time. These cute little die cut tags are from Honey Bee Stamps free"bee" goodies. 

I have several May birthdays to celebrate and I enjoy making my own tags and gift wrapping as often as possible. However, I didn't want to spend hours creating the tags. Simplicity was my goal.

Using the sticky mat in my Original MISTI was the trick to making these tags quick and easy. I lined up all of my tags and then added the sentiments to get everything arranged perfectly.

I stamped the sentiments two times. This is the magic of the MISTI. I was able to stamp these sentiments once and get perfect stamping using my MISTI. 

In just a few seconds I stamped 3 tags. After that, I just decorated them using a few simple elements.


 Here is a list of supplies used for these cute little tags. The dies are not listed because they were a free gift from Honey Bee.

You are a Blessing

Hello! Today's project features one of my favorite mediums, watercolor, and utilizes my favorite tools! The MISTI allows me to repeatedly stamp the lightest ink on textured watercolor paper for a perfect impression. This project had an added degree of difficulty as it required masking the large rose and adding smaller roses to complete the scene. 

Here is a list of tools used:

Baked for You

  Hello everyone! Anna here, with greetings the pacific northwest! The card I’m sharing today was made using recently released stamp from Whipper Snapper DesignsAdorable baking themed heart shaped cookies, paired with a sheet from the Bzzz patterned paper collection from Impression Obsession. The stamp set is perfect for making cards and tags for friends near and far.

I love how the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp perfect images on textured watercolor paper, every time! On card panels or on smaller sentiment banners, I can stamp with precision every time, giving me the perfect placement and impression for every project!  Sentiments are stamped perfectly placed, and stamped images on watercolor paper (or other textured papers) are a breeze to create!

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

Team Tuesday with Altenew

 (Our team uses affiliate links at no cost to you)

Hello crafty friends!

It's Ceal, here. Today I am channeling my inner Jaycee Gasper with an Altenew die set and ink blending.

I watched a live with Jennifer and Jaycee using this die set and I just had to order it, it's so beautiful. I went back and watched the replay and crafted along with them. Jaycee has a way with ink blending like no other. I love how you get the colors with ink blending rather than colored cardstock. I am a fan! 

To make this card, I started with a white to folding A2 card base and a piece of white cardstock for the die cuts. I placed a Sticky Mat in the Original Misti to hold the die cut pieces as I ink blended. I didn't have the ink colors that they used on the live so I substituted distress inks. After I got all the pieces ink blended, I cut the outline pieces of the flowers and leaves out of goil foil paper.    

The outlines pieces to the flowers are very thin and delicate but they were so easy to add with the Precision Glue Press

To finish the card, I added the thanks sentiment cut twice out of white for dimension and glued it to a gold backer.

Do You Need Two Different MISTI Sizes?

Hello Friends,

I am excited to be back this month to share a fun card with you featuring some beautiful products. 

For this card, I used Copic Markers to color the floral arrangement and the beautiful Lovely Layers Hummingbird. I ink blended in Villainous Potion around the floral arrangement and heat embossed the sentiment in white.

Do you need two different MISTI sizes? Well need is an interesting word. For this card, I stamped my sentiment on the front using my Mini MISTI and it worked great.

However, after I completed the card I realized I wanted to stamp my name on the back of the card. When I tried to do this in the Mini MISTI with the card folded I could tell it was going to be an issue. I had already added the hummingbird and it was popped up on foam tape. 

So Original MISTI to the rescue. All my stamping still came out perfectly.

Here is the supply list for the items I used.
