Team Tuesday with Jeanne

Hi! Jeanne here today.
I have an easy technique card to share today using my Mini MISTI.

Products used (see links below):
white glue
cardstock (white and light blue)
craft sponge 
inks (Distress inks or dye inks)
Nuvo Glitter Drops Golden Sunset
black fine pen

I used a fun technique called Distressed Glue to make my background. 
Sponge at least two colors of lighter ink on your cardstock. I used Ranger Distress Mustard
 Seed and Twisted Citron for my project. You can add ink in any pattern you like.

Spread white glue onto your sponged panel. Leave some spaces open. You can make a
pattern or just smear it on. I squirted a few lines straight from the bottle and smeared it
 across my paper with a scrap piece of cardstock.

Once your glue is dry (mine took about an half hour) sponge a darker color over the panel. 
I used Ranger Distress Wild Honey for my card. Wipe off extra ink.

Using my MISTI Stamp Tool I stamped the sunflower (Sunflower Duo
and  colored and restamped to bring out the details in the outline (always leave 
your stamps in the MISTI until after you've colored! 

I also stamped the Bless Your Heart sentiment from Butter My Butt (set of 8)

Here's a closer look at my finished card.

Team Tuesday with Giovana

Hello friends! Giovana here today with an Anniversary card!
I have a little story to share with you before I talk about the card I have for you.
I was asked if I could make an Anniversary card, details I got was "color blue", then it was on me, so I was almost done with the card, just needed to stamp "Happy Anniversary" and guess what??? I could not find a stamp with that sentiment!! And let me tell you, I have like 3K stamps, lol, printing was not an option because my printer is a headache and never works when I need it. So I was starting to panic, I needed to finish before the kids wake up from their nap, hehehe, well, then I thought (picture a super bright cloud and  a BLING moment) "I have some old stamp in the closet?!
So, I started to look and look and I got a pile, HUGE pile and nothing and then BAM! I found A SET!! Just 1 set that had the "Happy Anniversary" saying!!
My heart was happy, I finished the card and the kids woke up!
End of this silly story, now back to the card ;)

Started stamping the Wide Watercolor Stripe background on a piece of white cardstock in Delicata Golden Glitz ink, set aside to dry. 
For this project I used my Original MISTI
 Stamp the beautiful floral image from Mondo Sakura Set in Memento Tuxedo Black
 Color image with markers, here I used Spectrum Noir Markers.
 After that, die-cut image with coordinated die.
 Stamp sentiment from By your side set on  stripes panel in Jet Black Stazon Ink.
 Stamp Happy Anniversary inside.

Finally, I added blue rhinestone and pearls to embellish the card.

Hope you  like it.
Have a fantastic day!!

Team Tuesday with Ceal

Hello everyone and welcome to Team Tuesday! 
It's Ceal here to share with you today using some of the newest products by Concord & 9th. 
I love the turnabouts that were developed especially for the Original MISTI by Concord & 9th. For my background I used their latest Star Turnabout Bundle. 
In case you have never used the turnabouts before there is a little learning curve. First you have to make a jig which is a 6x6 square, I just use the back of a 6x6 sheet of patterned paper. Using a ruler you draw a line from corner to corner and next you number the corners, this is not necessary but if you are called away you will be able to tell which turn you were on if you are doing more than one rotation. Then you place your jig in the Original Misti.

The next step is to align your stamp, all of the turnabout stamp sets have a diagram on the packaging on how to line it up so do not throw away the packaging. After you have lined your stamp up close the lid of the Misti and pick up the stamp. Place a card front size of cardstock in the center of the jig using removable adhesive and start your rotations. All turnabout stamps can be rotated up to 4 times to give you a background on an A2 size card front.

For the focal point I used the Shine On bundle also by Concord & 9th. In my opinion the Misti is a must have for stamping the shine background also. I cut the background die out of Coastal Cabana cardstock and then placed the negative in the Misti and placed the cutout in the negative space in order to stamp it where needed. I used silver glitter paper behind the stitched panel so the cut out stars would be silver and also for the word Shine. The Birthday Girl is from the Hooray stamp set by yep Concord & 9th.
