Team Tuesday with Chris

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend, and have had a chance to hop with the My Sweet Petunia and Right at Home Collaboration Blog Hop!


Today I'm sharing a little tip that I used to create these two cards using Altenew products.

Stamps/dies used:  Altenew Peony Scrolls, Halftone Cover die and Halftone Hello

To create the floral elements for these cards quickly and easily, I used my MISTI to help place the stamps to match up with the dies while still wired together.

I placed the dies cutting side down on my MISTI.  Then carefully aligned the stamps within the coordinating dies.



Then I closed the lid, picking up all the stamps at once.




I then stamped all the images at once onto watercolor paper, painted them, and once they were fully dry, was able to align the dies and die cut them all in one pass.


Here is the video demonstrating this time-saving tip:



Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
Chris
