Team Friday with Stephanie

When I saw this layout at Freshly Made Sketches, I knew my MISTI would make putting it together a snap.

I used the new Impression Obsession Namaste Stamp as my focal point and two pieces of coordinating cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment twice using my MISTI, so the sentiment was positioned in the same place on both pieces of cardstock (I love how my cardstock was the exact shade as my MISTI with the Turquoise Stickers).

Since the sentiments were aligned, when I trimmed my cardstock, I could trim both pieces both together and assemble my texty puzzle for the sketch.

I added Impression Obsession Geometric Flower Die Cuts (topped with Eyelet Outlet Flower Bling).

Here is another take on the same MISTI technique using my Impression Obsession Wedding Collage background stamp.  This time I stamped twice with Rose Petals Ink on Ivory and Lavender Cardstock.


I trimmed my backgrounds together & then cut them into four pieces to assemble my grid ... the other great thing about this technique is you can end-up with two cards by assembling all of your pieces back together.

This time I matted on grey cardstock leaving a slight space between my pieces.



Are there stamps in your collection that would be fun to create with a grid design using your MISTI?

Critter Crew


I have been blessed with time lately.  Even though I work from home, I make it a point to head down to my craft room between 6:30 and 7:00 am everyday.  I work until 5:00 pm or until I hear my husband's footsteps.  

I am a schedule kind of person.  I have been trying to establish a routine.  Once my routine is established, I can start adding to it.   That means, I will have to add workout time into my schedule.  I set goals for things I need to get done and then I reward myself with a little crafting.  

Today's card is using Critter Crew from Avery Elle.  This was a stamp set that was in their February release that Jaime so generously sent me.


I stamped the focal image on Bristol cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I dug out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  I forgot how awesome they are.

Be sure to find time this week for some crafting.  I hope you enjoy the video and thanks so much for stopping by!

A Toucan of My Thanks



Jamie from Avery Elle contacted me about sending me the February release.  I quickly made this card.  The entire release was so adorable.  It was amazing to get to see them before they were released.


I stamped the images onto some Copic X-Press It cardstock.  It makes coloring with Copics a breeze.  After I finished coloring them I went back and overstamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder.

I used the banner from Banner Bits to add my sentiment.   It was a fun card to make.  I hope you enjoy the video.  Thanks for stopping by.
