Using a MISTI to Heat Emboss on Deli Paper


Hi, Welcome to Team Tuesdays and this is Susan up on the blog. This is a card you will definitely need a MISTI for. I used two WPlus9 Designs stamp sets: Autumn Leaves and So Very. 

I used my second edition MISTI to stamp and heat emboss the Thankful sentiment onto deli paper. I use deli paper when I am using my Gel Press. Sometimes I wipe off my brayer onto deli paper or I print on it. In this case, I did both. So besides the paint the paper was crinkled. I had to ink up the thankful 3-4 times with Versamark before applying the embossing powder. I did treat the deli paper with an embossing bag. I used WOW Ocean embossing powder. 

On a piece of Neenah I used my MISTI to stamp 3 leaves from Autumn Leaves and then die cut them out. The dies are on sale at WPlus9. See links below.

Halloween Ink Trapping Card with Channin

Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I a have fun halloween card to share! Today’s card was actually inspired by a beloved childhood book of mine called A Halloween Happening. 

To create this card I first stamped an A2 panel with the Bare Branched Tree Bold Prints in Pumpkin Pie Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. Do to this, I first ppsitioned the background stamp in the center of my MISTI and then used adhesive tape to hold my panel in place inside the well of my MISTI. After I stamped the tree I then added a few details to the trunk and branches with a copic marker, leaving my panel in place inside my MISTI. Next, I stamped the tree again in Versamark ink and then clear heat-embossed the image. Once the embossing powder was heat set I then ink blended over the tree with Grape Slush Reactive Ink, Grape Juice Mid-Tone Shadow Ink and INTENS-ified Black Ink. When I finished ink blending, I then wiped the tree clean with a dry rag to remove excess ink. 

Next, I stamped the pumpkins with the heroscape layering stamp set included in September My Monthly Hero Kit. I first stamped the solid layer for the pumpkins in Dandelion Bold Ink twice onto an A2 panel of white, rotating the panel after I stamped the pumpkins once and then stamping them again so I had the pumpkins on both sides of the panel. I then left the stamp in place in my MISTI and then throughly dried my panel with a heat gun. Next, I positioned the Jack-O-Lantern faces over some of the pumpkins and then stamped them in Versamark Ink and then embossing in clear. I then flipped my panel and stamped the other side of the panel with the Jack-O-Lantern faces, so the pumpkins on both sides had faces. I then repeated this process till I had all the pumpkins I wanted stamped. 

Next, I stamped the solid pumpkin layer again on both sides in Soft Apricot Ink. I then positioned the detail layer for pumpkins and stamped that on both sides in Tangerine Bold Ink. Next, I positioned the solid leaf layer in Pine Bold Ink on both sides. I then finished both sets of pumpkins by stamping the final layer in Cup O’ Joe Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. I then fussy cut several of my pumpkins out and adhered them my panel. 

Next, I trimmed my panel down 1/8” on all sides and then adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding black card base. Next, I stamped my sentiment (also from the kit) in Dandelion onto a strip of white cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment again in Versamark ink and heat set in clear embossing powder. I then ink blended over the strip with Tangerine ink and then adhered it to the card front to finish the card. 

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Concord & 9th Christmas with Ceal Pritchett

Hello everyone, It's Ceal here to share with you and today I am sharing products from the September release by Concord & 9th. 
With it being September already I have to get a jump start on my holiday card making and these products along with your MISTI will help you to move right along. 

To make the top card I started by stamping the Gingham Background on a white panel using Sea Glass ink, adhered that to a Stardust panel and then adhered to the white card base. I die cut the pieces I wanted to use from the Peace on Earth die set and then placed them back in the negative space to stamped them with the them in the different colors. I love to die cut first because with the Misti this gives you perfect placement. After they were all stamped I added them to the card front

The second card also requires a MISTI, to make this card I stamped the Candy Stripe Background in Stardust then turned my cardstock one turn and stamped it again to give me that plaid pattern. The Full of Joy Trifold die is so fun. I cut it out of white cardstock and then I cut the "O" out of glitter paper. I added a little greenery at the top to hold it up when closed. 


 To make my last card I stamped the Barnwood Background, (which is a favorite) in Wheat ink and adhered it to a Cranberry panel and then to the base. I used the Fresh Cut Florals dies Edition 4 to create the wreath and the J and Y from the Full of Joy Trifold Die. To finish it I added some sequins.

Tonic Studios Envelope Stamp Set

 Hi card making friends and welcome back.  It's Sandi MacIver here and today I'm sharing a card and envelope set I created with the NEW Tonic Studios Envelope Stamp Set.

I started by using an envelope punch board to create an A2 sized envelope out of Neenah Solar White 80# card. I knew I was going to use alcohol markers to color the images and I like this paper for that purpose.

By folding the flaps of the envelope back, the piece fits into the Misti to stamp the images in black ink.

Open the flaps back up so the envelope lays flat and color the images.  Next, use the Misti again to stamp the same images onto masking paper.  cut them out and mask the image off.

Blend the entire envelope with Distress Oxide Inks in Broken China and Tumbled Glass.  When the ink is dry, splatter it with water and dab up with a dry paper towel to further distress the look.

Adhere the flaps at the back to create the envelope.

The co-ordinating card is created with exactly the same steps.  I used a piece of Neenah 80# card 3-3/4 x 5 inches.
Once the water was dry from the splatter I also splattered the piece with white paint before removing the masking.

Place the piece back into the Misti and stamp the sentiments onto the sign.

Finally, I attached it to the center of a top folding A2 sized card base made from Neenah 110# card.

This is a new stamp set from Tonic Studios and is part of the New Stamp Club release from this past weekend.  There are all kinds of fun sentiments for your envelopes and cards and it's a must have for your crafting stash!

Ok, that's it for me today, I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and until next time
Happy Stamping.

It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas

...Or maybe not. 
Hi everyone, it's Ilina and here in Georgia it's beginning to look like Fall, but I couldn't resist using the new Concord and 9th release today.
For my card today I used the new Turnabout set called Let it Snow and the sentiment from the Festive Friends set. 

To make the card start by stamping the background using your MISTI and the Turnabout Jig. I used shades of blue and pale pink. Once stamped I set it aside .
Stamp sentiment in Versamark on Vellum and emboss in white. Trim to size. Die cut one of the scallop rectangles from Paradise cardstock. Adhere the vellum sentiment and trim the side. 
Adhere some silver thread onto the stamped panel and adhere the sentiment panel on top using foam  tape.

Complicated Background Stamps with the MISTI


Welcome to Team Tuesdays! This is Susan here on the blog. For today's card I am using the STAMPtember collaboration set between Simon Says Stamp and the Ink Blot Shop called Life is An Adventure. When I saw this set several designs came to mind but this one is my favorite. My son was a Boy Scout and I have saved his letters home from summer camp. 

For the background I used the Lined Paper background because my son often used this for his letters. Using my MISTI and Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock I lined up the stamp carefully in alignment with the grid lines on the MISTI. First I inked the horizontal lines with Reverse Confetti Salsa.

I stamped the blue first and then keeping the stamp and paper in the same place, I used Reverse Confetti Salsa to stamp the red line. To make this look more realistic I added finger prints and splatters of Walnut Ink Distress Ink to the paper. I also added some Picked Raspberry to emulate the candy and jelly on his letters. 

For the focal image I stamped the little boy with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with my grandson's coloring but my son's orange Boy Scout camping uniform. I also used some of the back ground images from the set and a few other sets, Skyline Borders, Just the Months and Dateline to make a doodled letter like I used to receive. I had a lot of fun traveling down memory lane to make this card and I hope my son recognizes the uniform colors when his son gets the card!

Layered Floral Wreath with Channin

Hello friends! It's Channin here and today a have layered floral card to share. I changed things up a little and combined the beautiful Charming Floral Wreath Stamp Set with a fall palette to give this card a very festive feel!

To create this card I first stamped the floral accents with the Charming Floral Wreath Stamp Set. I started with the leaves and stamped them first in Olive. I then partially inked up the same leaves by holding my ink pad at an angle in Evergreen and then stamped again. I then positioned next the layer, the detail layer for the leaves, and stamped it in Gathered Twigs. 

Next I positioned the base for the flowers and stamped the large flowers in Clementine and then partially in Persimmon. I then inked up the flowers in the middle in Lemon Whip and then partially in Marigold. Lastly I stamped the remaining flowers in Berrylicious and Raspberry Bliss. I then positioned the last layer, the detail layer for the flowers. I then inked up the details for the orange and yellow flowers in Persimmon and stamped it. Next, I inked up the details for the red flowers in Gathered Twigs and stamped. With my floral accents stamped I then die cut them out with the matching dies. 

I then stamped an A2 panel of cream cardstock with the Diamond Tiles cling stamp in Doe. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Whole Lot of Awesome in Gathered Twigs and then off-set the sentiment and stamped it in Warm Buff. I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then adhered the floral accents with foam adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed my card!! Thank you so much for stopping by!
