Team Tuesday with Giovana

Hello friends! Giovana here today with a super sweet Fall card.
I don't know if you like Fall or not, but I love it!! 
Even though around this area it can get a little too cold for a regular Fall season, I love the cold morning and warm afternoons, all the beautiful changing colors of the trees and the birds chirping around looking for a warm spot.
I love the PNW, it's beautiful here, and not I am not talking about Seattle, lol. I live far away from the city, which makes it a lot better. 
I don't know if you knew it, but I am from Peru, exactly from Lima, and we don't get this kind of Fall, actually right now over there is Spring (South Hemisphere) and it is not warm yet!!

Anyway, I have a fun project for you, who doesn't like a little bit of cheer, right?
I used this beautiful Layered Pinecone set from Impression Obsession.
I used my Mini Misti and stamped the pinecone twice using Mist, Beige, Sienna, Chocolate and Black Inks, then die-cut the image using coordinate die.

I created a super diluted background using a piece of watercolor paper with Liquid Metals: Metallic Saffron and Iron Oxide and lots of water!! 
The shimmer from these 2 liquid metals is beautiful!!
Stamped the sentiment from same set in Chocolate Ink.
Die-cut the panel using the frame from Bunny Frame Set

Added watercolor panel to a white card base.
Die-cut Arched Leaves in Vellum and Gold cardstock and adhered them to panel, then adhered one pinecone direct to panel and the other one used foam adhesive.
Covered the pinecones with Wink of Stella.
Finally added copper sequins and little dots of White Nuvo Drops.

Hope you like this project!
Have a wonderful day!!

Team Tuesday with Ceal

It's Ceal, here on Team Tuesday to share a card with you using the Misti for the Ombre' technique.
To create my card, I started with a Turquoise Sea card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller.
The stamp set I used is Sparkling Snowflake from the Gina K Designs Stamp TV kit - Fruit of The Season. 
Using the Original Misti, I stamped the large snowflake first in Sea Glass ink and then just inked up the edges with a darker color, Turquoise Sea and overstamped it. This gives the ombre effect especially if you use more than two colors. This would not be possible for me to do this without the Misti because even if stamps are clear I can not get them to line back up to overstamp.  

I also used the same technique on the smaller snowflakes as well and then to finish the card I added some Nuvo crystal drops in the centers.

Team Tuesday with Kia

 Hello everyone, Kia here today. I have a little tutorial for you on the above card. 
First though, I should mention that deco foil does not like to photograph head on, so I did some angle shots to try and capture the look of the card. 
 I am using my Mini Misti and Concord & 9th's Lace Leaf for my card today. I started with the shadow stamp first, stamping with versamark ink, heat embossing with white embossing powder, and covering with deco foil, then running through my laminator, as suggested by Jennifer McGuire. I then die cut the panel using my wonky stitched die and attached it to a teal card base.
 I then stamped the leaf, again using versamark embossing ink, and heat embossing with a Vintage Mint embossing powder.
 To add colour to the leaf I sponged on cracked pistachio, spiced marmalade, evergreen bough and abandoned coral, buffed with a soft cloth, then fussy cut the leaf.
 I flipped over my mouse pad using the back to style my leaf to add movement, and attached it to my card panel using foam squares. I put the card back in my Misti and stamped the sentiment using Ranger Paradise Teal ink.
 I then wanted some splatters, so made a mask with photo copy paper to cover the card base and splattered with gold ink. I did not want to do it before as then I would have to wait for the panel to dry before attaching it to my base.
 The photos taken on the angles show the way the card really looks, even when look at it full on. 😊
 I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial and would like to thank you for visiting My Sweet Petunia today.

Team Tuesday with Ilina

Hi everyone,
Ilina here today with a simple Christmas card design that is easy to mass produce thanks to the MISTI. If you are like me (have 3 little kids and a full time job aside from crafting) you appreciate cards that can be easily mass produced.
And I do love how easy this set is to layer and create striking design.
To make the card start by stamping the first layer of the branch in Fresh Lawn ink, then the second in Pine. For the ornament I used Pale Tomato and Strawberry.
Once done, stamp the sentiment with Intense Black and adhere your panel to red card base.
tip: Once you have the first layer set in the MISTI, stamp all panel with that layer, then more onto the second, this will make mass production a breeze.

World Card Making Day and a SALE!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!!!   I celebrate this day almost everyday.  I don't always get a card a day because I suffer from squirrel syndrome.  Lately,  I have been on a quest to reduce my paper pad stash.   I made a variety of cards with the same paper: however, the paper stash has not been reduced.

Here are a few of my latest creations using the last Concord and 9th release. It is an amazing release.  It has been a while since I have used a release right after I received it.  This release was one that I opened and ran to my desk.

I was determined to use up all of the die cut snowflakes.  This card uses the Joy from a retired Ellen Hudtson Die but I am sure you have something that you can substitute.   I even made tags to use up every little bit.

Christmas cards are going well.  I am about one third done.  I still have about one hundred cards to go.   So today, on World Card Making Day,  I am going to attempt another go at stash busting.  Hope you are inspired and will also take advantage of the sale.  My Sweet Petunia is having a sale this weekend until Monday.  You can enjoy 18% off the entire store.
