Happy Birthday Flowers

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

 Hello there! Angie here, and I'm thrilled to feature a birthday card today! It was a lot of fun to make and I'm happy to tell you that the MISTI tool made inking this large stamp a breeze! To prevent the cardstock from moving during several inkings, I put a Sticky Mat inside my Teal Original MISTI. The Sticky Mat held the cardstock securely in place as I stamped repeatedly to get a complete impression. Moreover, I love using Double Dip notes inside my cards, especially when the card base is dark! Additionally, I used the Precision Glue Press to adhere the die-cut scene to the card base.

Below you will find a video featuring the new Creative Corners! Lydia shows what is new and several different ways to use them!

Coffee, Blankets, and Books


 Hello everyone! Anna here, with greetings from an unseasonably warm pacific northwest! The card I’m sharing today was made using recently released stamps from Impression Obsession. Adorable coffee and book themed stamp sets filled with images and sentiments perfect for making cards and tags for book lovers in your life.  I also used one of my watercolor blending panels for my card base. I love the colors! 

I love how the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp an image and sentiment several times, 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 The Rabbit Hole Designs

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

 


Hello crafty friends!
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing an encouragement card using products by The Rabbit Hole Designs and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
To make this card, I started with a white top folding A2 card base and a white panel. I placed the panel in the original MISTI andstamped the floral images. I colored them using OLO markers, then cut them out with the coordinating die. 
I added a sentiment to the center of the card base and then added the floral images at the top and bottom using the Precision Glue Press.

MISTI Tricks I Didn't Know About

 Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing a couple of MISTI tricks I never knew about. One of them I learned from Kristina Werner and the other I just kind of stumbled on. I am 100% certain many know this trick already, but for some reason, I didn't commit it to memory before now.


For this card, I created the shaker window by placing it in the MISTI and then lining the backing up over the open part with the sequins. Then I added the backing by pushing it up against the side and bottom of the MISTI walls. It worked perfectly.





I loved making the first one so much that I made a second one using the same technique but with a different concept. This time I made a window sentiment. 



I hope you like these cards. If you'd like to see the video you can check it out HERE on Wednesday 2/14 at 4pm PST.

The supplies I used to make these cards are listed here.

Hello! MISTI products make me a very happy stamper! Today, I am featuring two sweet cards that came together quickly thanks to MISTI tools.  The Original Black MISTI, a Mini MISTI, and Sticky Mats were essential since I stamped on textured watercolor paper. In addition to the previously stated tools, I utilized the Cut Align Ruler, Double Dip Note Pads, and Alignment Grids. (all the tools can be found in the MSP Retail Shop, HERE

Like a dash of color in your art studio?  The MISTIs now come in a variety of beautiful colors, Teal Original, Black Original, and MSP Pink Original.  Plus the Mini MISTI now comes in Teal!



Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Team Tuesday with Concord & 9th

***Our team uses affiliate links at no cost to you***

Hey crafty friends! 
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing this masculine birthday card using the Original Misti, the Precision Glue Press and some Concord and 9th products. 
I started with a white top folding A2 card base and a white panel. I placed the panel in the Original Misti and used the Mod Turnabout stamp which were originally designed for the Original Misti. I stamped it in four different colors turning it 4 times. After I got it stamped out I ran it through the diecutting machine using a cover plate to add some texture.  
I cut two of the happy birthday to you out of 110lb cardstock and adhered them together with the Precision Glue Press.
