Jean please email info@mysweetpetunia to claim your prize. 

Now on to the deets on my cards.
I started with a white top folding card bases, a couple black onyx panels, two bristol panels and the stamp set from the the June card kit by Simon Says Stamp.
For my first card I stamped the butterflies using distress ink and then went over them with Liquid Pixie Dust that I had added to wa water brush, this spread the color out a little. to finish the card I adhered the focal panel to the black panel and then onto the base. I added a greeting from the same set. 

For the second card, I randomly stamped  butterflies all over the panel and embossed them using clear embossing powder. After they were all done I added some distress ink using the Life Changing Blender Brushes in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed. To finish the card I added a greeting by stamping it on black onyx card stock, embossing it in white and the using the Cut-Align to cut it out.

MISTI: No Tomorrow

As I am writing this post, I am thinking about how coincidental the title is to today's uncertain situation.  However, I am fully confident that everything is going to be just fine.   So let's move forward and get to today's card.

I won't bore you with the details and just let you enjoy the video.  Obviously, you have no where to go.

Wishing You a Perfect Day

Hi everyone!
Ilina here today! I am sharing a fun and yummy card using the Macaron set from Impression Obsession. I love Macarons!!! While I had my stamps set in the MISTI for each layer I decided to stamp bunch of the macarons in different colors and used only 3 inks for all 5 layers. I stamped the first layer with lightest, second layer with the same light ink but stamped twice, third layer with the medium ink, fourth with dark ink and fifth with the same dark ink but twice.

Next, I cut them out. I created a panel from white card stock, stamped the sentiment then adhered the macarons using foam tape.
For my background panel I used Mist card stock and the Altenew Dotted Scales Debossing cover die. 
Assemble your panel and adhere to top folding note card. Add jewels to finish it off.

Pinkfresh Studio Just Because Card

Hi crafty friends and welcome back.  Sandi here and my share today is a Pinkfresh Studio Just Because card.
I recently ordered this Just Because stamp and die combo because I fell in love with the beautiful line details in the stamp.

As you may know, sometimes it's very hard to get these detailed images to stamp well the first time.  By using the Misti, I can securely position my card stock into the platform to ink and stamp as many times as necessary for a crisp dark image.

This week I'm in love with copic coloring. Do you have that too, go for stretches where you use the same products? It's a thing with me for sure haha.

Peach: E03, YR02, YR18 Yellow: Y11, Y15, Y19 Green: YG11, G24, G28

Once my coloring was completed, I die cut the art piece with the coordinating die. At the same time I also cut out the "You" sentiment from black card three times and layered them.

Before putting the card together I created a quick background by white heat embossing the Diamond Tiles background stamp also from Pinkfresh, onto Simon Says Stamp Fog card and cut it down to 3-3/4 x 5 before attaching it to my top folding A2 white card base.

And finally, I purposely left the stamp in the Misti so I could pop in a white envelope, stamp and color it so that it matched my card.  It's so fun to receive a colored envelope in the mail, a little sneak peek of the treat inside!

That's it for me today, I hope you are having a great week.  Stay Safe and keep on stamping!

Simple Rainbow Panel Cards and 6th Bonus Card

Hello friends!! It's Channin here with a bunch of cards to share! Today I create a group of cards with Waffle Flower Crafts Fresh Rainbow Combo Set. This set is perfect for our current times and because of that I decided to create a simple mass production card design with this set.

To create these cards, I first die cut five A2 panels of pattern paper with the Fresh Rainbow Panel Die and saved all the pieces except for the two negative pieces above and below the rainbow.  I then die cut five A2 panels of white cardstock also with the Fresh Rainbow Panel Die but discarded the negative for the rainbow stripes. Next, I ink blended over the two negative pieces above and below the rainbow from all the white cardstock panels in Bundled Sage Distress Oxide with a mask I created out of contact paper with the Cloudscape Panel Die.

I then adhered the white rainbow frames onto five A2 top-folding white card bases. Next, I inlaid the pattern paper stripes, a different color for each stripe, for the rainbow and the ink blended sections. I then finished these cards by stamping a sentiment from the Fresh Rainbows Sentiment Stamp Set in Rocky Slope Ink.

I also created a sixth bonus card with the pattern paper frame scraps. I first adhered all the pattern paper frames together but each one slightly off-set. Next, I die cut one more fresh rainbow panel out of white cardstock and stamped a sentiment from in New Fish in Pond.

I also ink blended the top and bottom negative portions of the panel with the cloud mask and New Fish in Pond. I then trimmed off the overhang and added foam tape to support areas of the frame. Next, I adhered the stacked panels onto an A2 top-folding card base. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the ink blended sections.

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