Team Tuesday with Kia

 Hello everyone, Kia here today. I have a little tutorial for you on the above card. 
First though, I should mention that deco foil does not like to photograph head on, so I did some angle shots to try and capture the look of the card. 
 I am using my Mini Misti and Concord & 9th's Lace Leaf for my card today. I started with the shadow stamp first, stamping with versamark ink, heat embossing with white embossing powder, and covering with deco foil, then running through my laminator, as suggested by Jennifer McGuire. I then die cut the panel using my wonky stitched die and attached it to a teal card base.
 I then stamped the leaf, again using versamark embossing ink, and heat embossing with a Vintage Mint embossing powder.
 To add colour to the leaf I sponged on cracked pistachio, spiced marmalade, evergreen bough and abandoned coral, buffed with a soft cloth, then fussy cut the leaf.
 I flipped over my mouse pad using the back to style my leaf to add movement, and attached it to my card panel using foam squares. I put the card back in my Misti and stamped the sentiment using Ranger Paradise Teal ink.
 I then wanted some splatters, so made a mask with photo copy paper to cover the card base and splattered with gold ink. I did not want to do it before as then I would have to wait for the panel to dry before attaching it to my base.
 The photos taken on the angles show the way the card really looks, even when look at it full on. 😊
 I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial and would like to thank you for visiting My Sweet Petunia today.

Team Tuesday with Ilina

Hi everyone,
Ilina here today with a simple Christmas card design that is easy to mass produce thanks to the MISTI. If you are like me (have 3 little kids and a full time job aside from crafting) you appreciate cards that can be easily mass produced.
And I do love how easy this set is to layer and create striking design.
To make the card start by stamping the first layer of the branch in Fresh Lawn ink, then the second in Pine. For the ornament I used Pale Tomato and Strawberry.
Once done, stamp the sentiment with Intense Black and adhere your panel to red card base.
tip: Once you have the first layer set in the MISTI, stamp all panel with that layer, then more onto the second, this will make mass production a breeze.

World Card Making Day and a SALE!



Happy World Card Making Day!!!!!   I celebrate this day almost everyday.  I don't always get a card a day because I suffer from squirrel syndrome.  Lately,  I have been on a quest to reduce my paper pad stash.   I made a variety of cards with the same paper: however, the paper stash has not been reduced.

Here are a few of my latest creations using the last Concord and 9th release. It is an amazing release.  It has been a while since I have used a release right after I received it.  This release was one that I opened and ran to my desk.


I was determined to use up all of the die cut snowflakes.  This card uses the Joy from a retired Ellen Hudtson Die but I am sure you have something that you can substitute.   I even made tags to use up every little bit.


Christmas cards are going well.  I am about one third done.  I still have about one hundred cards to go.   So today, on World Card Making Day,  I am going to attempt another go at stash busting.  Hope you are inspired and will also take advantage of the sale.  My Sweet Petunia is having a sale this weekend until Monday.  You can enjoy 18% off the entire store.
