Concord and 9th Blog Hop

When I was told that Concord and 9th designed a stamp with the MISTI in mind, my heart skipped a beat.  I had already started collecting their stamps and was excited to hear that they were sending me two stamps from their new release.

The Flourish stamp set is so easy to use.  I stamped it with white pigment ink onto black cardstock and then overstamped with other colors.  Using the Mini MISTI made it easy to overstamp in the various pigment inks.
I loved the way it turned out.  It looks like a chalkboard drawing.  I think it would be nice on kraft cardstock as well.  Adding the layer of clear embossing powder intensified the colors.

Greg and Angie also sent me the You Crazy Cat stamp set.  Instead of using the stamp as intended,  I used the octagon template to make a sun with the ear stamp.


You can make this into a flower also by stamping a center of some kind.  Both cards used sentiments from the Love You, Mean It stamp set.  

We are also having a giveaway for a Mini MISTI.  All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win.  We will announce the winner on the My Sweet Petunia Facebook page, so be sure to like the page.  

Here is the hop list:

I filmed videos for each.  I hope you enjoy.

    I have to tell you this, I thought it was funny...I was the first one in our area to learn about your original MISTI. When I told my card making friends about it and they found out the price they all thought I was crazy. Until they saw mine and how it worked. LOL I know of at least 6 that were purchased soon after! A great product! Cudos to you!
