One Technique Two Ways - Seasons Givings Blog Hop & Giveaway



Hey everyone! Welcome to the 7th annual Seasons Givings Blog Hop. This hop was created by Latisha Yoast as a way for bloggers to thank their readers for all the kindness you have shown all of us through your comments throughout the year - just a  way to give back to our community. 

So after you see the projects below, stay tuned for details on how you can win our prize tonight!

I wanted to show two simple ways you can use your MISTI for a drop shadow technique with a bold background stamp - this beautiful set

You have seen how you can stamp an image in one color, shift your paper slightly and then stamp again in a second color to create the effect. But I wanted to make a card SET to start the New Year so I just made one simple tweak.

I set the stamp up in the Original MISTI - that's what you will need to use for large background stamps like this one, and I positioned it so that I was only using half the stamp. Then I stamped four card fronts with Passionate Pink, Key Lime, Wild Dandelion and Blue Raspberry Inks. Then I cleaned the stamp, and with one of the fronts in the MISTI, just shifted the stamp up and to the left, picked it up with the lid, and quickly stamped all four in Nocturne. This was a much quicker way and more precise for multiples than moving the paper each time - it was so easy and fun. I used this die two different ways - cutting through the white panel for two, and then cutting and re-piecing on the other two for a subtler look.

  2. Loved it. That is something a beginner like me aspires to.

  3. Morning and a happy New Year to you. I have a memory Misti as I started off scrpbooking. As i have moved to card making I know a smaller version that uses up less space on my desk is absolutely what would make card making easier.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Great technique & example of how helpful the MISTI is! What would make my crafting life simpler is an organization genie or a blog writing geni--haha! Seriously, winning this prize would do it! Thanks for participating in the hop & Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Happy new year! Thank you for a great chance to win! I need to learn to clear my work space after each creating session... it would jump start my creating mojo!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Great idea I love this look and how simple it can be but looks like it took forever to create. I love the misti. Use it often. I really want to make CAS cards that pack a punch. Happy New Year.

    ReplyDelete
  7. BOLD & BEAUTIFUL cards!
    THANK YOU for the INKY INSPIRATION and TOP TIP about moving the stamp instead of the paper :)
    Ooh, such a GENEROUS prize. An Original MISTI sure would make my creative life easier ... along with a fairy that could help me sort my stash.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Storage storage storage - all with GREAT labelling! Would be great to be able to locate stash I know I have!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Awesome technique, beautiful stamp. A Misti would definitely make crafting life simpler, and so would a really nice paper cutter. Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love the effect you created with that amazing stamp! I definitely need to look at my large background stamps a bit differently. I always say my crafty life would be a LOT simpler if I could get organized! A place for everything and everything in its place...that kinda thing. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  11. What a cool and colorful card set! An Original MISTI would make my crafting life much simpler! Currently, I have no way to double stamp background stamps plus I have my eye on the Gina K wreath builder, so I'm definitely looking to add a bigger MISTI to my crafting arsenal. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Crafting would be simpler if I wasn't so messy and put items back to their storage home. Too often I pile up the table behind me...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Happy 2019! Getting organized would make my crafting life so much simpler. I would spend less time looking and more time crafting!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Gosh, something to make my crafting life simpler? Probably a dedicated craft room. I currently share with our spare bedroom and sometimes I wish I had space all to myself!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow 2 Misti's awesome. I have used the misti and it is so much easier to stamp with so the Misti of course would make my stamping life so muchhhhh easier.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Having a second Misti would make my crafting life easier. I can't live without it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Happy 2019!
    Misti will make stamping a lot easier for me when I have to make a lot of the same cards. It's so much easier to stamp sentiments etc.
    Beautiful card with the big flower!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Your misti tool would make my stamping life so much simpler. Not so much frustration or mistakes

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love this! Thanks Lydia and misti for the inspiration. I think a bigger desk would make crafting much simpler lol

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have the larger MISTI and love it! I would love to have the other sizes in the MISTI to help with table space, depending on what I'm working on at a particular time. Table space would also help a lot!:) Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I Love this card set...it's beautiful!
    What would make my crafting life simpler? How about a magic cleaning gnome that swoops in after I've had a crafting session?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Happy New Year, what would make my crafting simpler is a desk that rises and lowers so I can stand or sit while crafting.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the tweak you have mentioned! Makes making cards so easy! I think Misti has already made our crafting lives easier. I would love a pair of sicissors that remains free of adhesive residue now!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love using my Misit but it would be nice to have another so my daughter and I can craft at the same time. I could definitely use some bar magnets. It would make holding the paper in place much easier. Thank you for the opportunity and Happy New Year.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Something that would make crafting easier for me is to have a larger work surface - my desk allows me to work on one project at a time, and that is NOT how my brain works at all. :) Thanks for the chance to win! Happy New Year to your crew!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love this technique!! It's a cool effect!! What would make my crafting life easier would be an original Misti. I ordered a Mini Misti from you and it is a game changer!! I do need something larger though and the original would do the trick!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would LOVE a Misti in 2019. That would be an amazing productivity tool for the new year.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks for all the inspection this year. Something that would make my crafting life simpler is more space and better organization. 😊

    ReplyDelete
  32. The misti bundle would be a huge help!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. My crafting life would be so much simpler if my craft room was twice as big LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Organization makes crafting easier for me. I must clean between projects...that is another thing Misti helps me with because I can pick the tool up and set it in it's place still loaded without the risk of my stamps falling into the chaos on my desk. Thanks for the giveaway chance! Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think for me, organization is key to happy crafting as I cannot abide a mess. I am in the process of getting my craft space well organized and look forward to spending more happy time in there. Happy New Year to you and thank you so much for offering such a terrific prize! Cheers.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. I can’t think of anything that could be more simpler than another MISTI...or two! Love your products!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. More Time!!!! Oh I just read SmilynStef's post and she said the same thing!!! Great minds!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What would make my crafting life simpler? Besides an unlimited budget? Of course a misti! I suffer from the dreaded roll when I stamp! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Happy New Year! The MISTI is a great tool. Thanks for the tip to make multiple cards. It would be nice to have elves (or someone) to clean my craft room. Of course they would have to put my supplies in places where I can find them when I need them again.

    ReplyDelete
  43. An organised craft space would definitely make my crafting life simpler : )
    Happy New Year, thanks for a great hop : )

    ReplyDelete
  49. What would make my crafting life simpler, more space to organize my stash. Hard to craft when its hard to find what I'm looking for.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would like more space to work in. My little craft nook is getting crowded with all the stuff I have acquired...

    ReplyDelete
  52. More time to craft would definitely make my crafting life simpler. I never seem to have enough time to do all I want with my cards. Love these by the way! Beautifully simple.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh Lydia.....you have so inspired me to get more use out of my stamps. What a beautiful image you came up with by double stamping! I can see where the Misti would definitely come in handy for that! The colors you chose are absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. I need to quit over thinking every little detail to make my crafting time more productive LOL Having TWO Mistis would open up a world of opportunities to try new ideas and get more done! Happy New Year to youuuuuuu :-)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Having more time in my craft room. A Misti is a must in crafting.
    Thanks for sharing...

    ReplyDelete
  58. that is a cool technique. I currently do not have any misti type products. Lots of things going through my head right now of what could be done with one...Happy New year

    ReplyDelete
  59. Happy and Prosperous New Year to you all, I seem to struggle with space, once I'm in the crafty groove, I don't want to lose my mojo and at some point stop putting things away and all of a sudden I'm frustrated in my 5x5 inch space! LOL it happens everytime and I never learn!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I maid would be nice. I wouldn't have to clean up the massive mess I end up making. Or maybe a professional organizer to find a better way to set up my space. Otehrwise, it's all about time.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I need someone to come in and organize me to make my life simpler. Thanks for the fantastic prize package

    ReplyDelete
  62. What would make my crafting life simpler? More friends to craft with and the ability to suspend things in mid-air Harry Potter style, LOL. I have a small crafting space and have a tendency to have more than one project going at a time! Goal for 2019? Focus on one project at a time. : ) kReN@afourthlife

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thanks for this drop shadow tip! I actually really love this idea and totally want to give it a try! Hmmm... what could make my crafty life simpler? The perfect stamp and die sorting solution would be nice. I have good organization, but still find myself flipping through ALL of the options altogether too often. LOL! Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Happy New Year Everyone ! I'm sorry to do this to you but my Misti makes my crafting life easier ! I did think long & hard but it's the truth, my misti. I only have one currently but stamping has never been so much fun, it works every time, it's saved many a card from the scrap & I'm wasting far less cardstock. Next to this it must be my Fiskars trimmer, no more disasters in cutting neat cardbases. Thank you for being part of this fun hop.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Happy New Year! Oh, a MISTI absolutely would help me to create simple cards and do fun effects.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Easier way to stamp as arthritis is starting.

    ReplyDelete
  75. TIME, lol!! Love the sample of using the same stamp in black and in color! very cool!

    ReplyDelete
  78. What an AWESOME giveaway! I recently started using a MISTI - -what was I waiting for? Something that would make my crafting life easier would be a BIGGER MISTI! Big enough to fit large envelopes to mil goodies to friends! Also, more MISTI magnets! I could use some more magnets! Thanks for some awesome inspiration all year long!
    Happy New Year Hugs!

  79. This is probably impossible to make but I would like an electric die cutting machine, like the Gemini, that is able to cut a die in the exact same place on a piece of paper. In other words I want a die cutting machine that will do for dies like the Misti does for stamps.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I love this card. Thanks for the new technique idea. The thing that would make my craft life simpler would be if my husband would finish my new craft room by putting the counter tops inπŸ˜†. Looking forward to creating in 2019. Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  81. These cards are gorgeous! Love the variation of colours! My crafting life would be simpler if I were better at colouring and I'm going to work on that! Thank you for the awesome prize! I would love to win your MISTI prize pack!

    ReplyDelete
  82. My crafting life would be much simpler and I didn’t have to work full time. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Just a little more organization would make my crafting life simpler...but I'm doing okay in chaos too.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I would agree more time and order. I love my Misti.

    ReplyDelete
  85. My craft room put back together. My husband remolded our bathroom and took some space from my craft room and it's now it's a totally mess waiting on him to finish redoing my craft room. Also the MISTI corners would be amazing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Happy New Year. Being organized would make my crafting life simpler

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love MISTIS. I really do if I had to pick you know three game changers in my crafting life one of them would be my original Misti. I love the size I love how it works I love everything about it. The one thing that would make my whole crafting life so much easier would be if everything was organized. I waste so much time looking for one specific thing that I want so badly to find. Heaven for bid I even bought something I love love loved again because I couldn’t find the first one I really don’t ever want to do that again.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I must agree, more time with my crafty friends would make my crafty life simpler. Hard to find time, as crafting is a luxury, but I am going to make it more than that. It is a necessity because it is great therapy & stress relief.
    Happy New Year

    ReplyDelete
  91. A Misti would make my crafting life simpler!!!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I just wrote about her being organized with so improve my life but I forgot to give you an email address that works for me and I don’t know what that Google one below is but the one that I use is the following

  93. Happy New Year!
    my crafty life yould make simplier electronic cutting machine!
    thank you for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  94. A larger space - lol. I just moved into a rv full time and set up a small corner to craft in but i can tell it's already way to small for all my crafting needs.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I think a housekeeper would make my crafting life simpler! If I didn't have to cook or clean I could find so much more time to craft. I don't see that happening anytime soon so I will have to just stick to using my MISTI products to make crafting so much easier.

    ReplyDelete
  96. A designated craft room would make my life simpler. I have a designated space, but not an entire room, so that is my wish for the new year.

    ReplyDelete
  97. ohhh a misti, thanks for the chance! I love the technique and like everyone else I just need some more time in my craft room

    ReplyDelete
  98. Fun technique - just another great reason to own a Misti! I would love more space to craft in and to organize my supplies in!

    ReplyDelete
  99. What a great prize package - the thing that would make my crafting life better is organization so I can use the things I have

    ReplyDelete
  100. The thing that would make my crafting life simpler is more craft time with my girl friends. Love my original misti, couldn't stamp without it. I tell everyone about it.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Having a dedicated craft room would definitely make my life simpler.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think de-stashing would help me simplify my crafting life. Maybe also getting a new die-cutting machine. There's so many more intricate dies out there that my old machine struggles with.

    ReplyDelete
  103. These are beautiful! My crafting life needs a maid to pick up the craftermath to make it simpler. LOL!! I need a second MISTI for production stamping! Thanks for the chance and for sponsoring this fun hop!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I Love my Misti, and a T- ruler is wonderful too!

    ReplyDelete
  105. The MISTI has definitely made my crafting life simpler. I love it. Aside from more space and more time, I would say an electric die cutting/embossing machine would be helpful. Love this card technique. I'll have to give it a try. Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Happy New Year!Having more space would make my crafting life SO much simpler.

    ReplyDelete
  107. That look is so dynamic - like the pattern is lit up. As for something that would make my crafting life easier? Someone to clean up and organize my space! Unfortunately that someone likely will have to be me and I get too easily distracted by my own stash to actually go through it and organize!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Having my own crafting room would make my life easier! Where I'm living right now, I have a table in a small area, which I'm grateful for, but I would love to have more space!

    ReplyDelete
  109. my crafting life would be better if I had a bigger work space

    ReplyDelete
  110. The tool that would make crafting easier is a Misti!

    ReplyDelete
  111. The only thing I need in my crafting life is my new craft room , so excited to get crafty in it !!!! And a mini Misty would be fabulous too �� !

    ReplyDelete
  112. There are two things on my list to make my crafting life easier (other than time - who can't use a little more time?) When making Christmas gifts a couple of weeks ago, I realized how badly I NEED bar magnets for my MISTI! And a paper cutter that will give me a straight cut every time! Thanks for the chance to win! Blessings to you in 2019!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Fabulous cards! More time & an organized room-1 of my goals!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I too need more time to craft!

    ReplyDelete
  115. The thing that would make my crafting easier would be more space! I love to spread out when creating. Thanks for the opportunity to win these great prizes! Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  116. What would make my crafting life simpler is to be more organized, which is always the hardest thing for me, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Happy New Year!! Wow gorgeous results!! I need more magnets for my MISTI to make my crafting life simpler.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Oh man a MISti would definitely make my crafting life easier! God Bless and Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  119. This prize would make crafting simpler! Lol 😁 Happy New year

    ReplyDelete
  120. A personalized Chef would make my craft life simpler because I wouldn't have to spend so much time in the kitchen and I would be able to spend time in the craft room.

    ReplyDelete
  121. A better organizational system would be amazing. Especially while I'm creating and I have tools and bits strewn everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Being able to work less & have more time to craft & having a professional organizer come in & clean up & reorganize my craft room. I have good intentions but never seem to find the time to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  123. My crafting fantasy is to have a magical sprite put away all of the crazy mayhem I leave behind in my card making frenzy.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Oh my gosh!!! I’ve never heard of a MISTI but it would make my life sooooooo much easier than trying to line up every stamp by hand and just holding my breath that it’s right!!!! Thank you for this opportunity!!! I’m so glad this blog hop allowed me to discover you!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I have a mini misti and the original work make crafting easier - I can see that now. Especially with the large mandala stamps like these beautiful cards!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Love this medallion stamp, makes such a pretty card. Someone coming in to clean my craft room after each project would make crafting life simpler.

    ReplyDelete
  127. A happy and crafty new year to all and many greetings from Germany :-)
    I'm looking forward to all new stamps and dies and inspiration, because love cardmaking and this work is my daily pleasure. Thanks for all ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  128. The one thing that would make my crafting simpler is the original misty. I have the mini misty and have some big stamps that just can't be done with the mini. Having the original would be a God Send!

    ReplyDelete
  129. Besides a MISTI, a professional organizer would make my crafting life easier - I have SO much stuff I've accumulated over the years and I KNOW the second I get rid of it, I'm gonna need it!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I think a mini MISTI would make my crafting life easier. I have the original MISTI and didn't think that I would need the mini, but I'm reconsidering.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Organization in my stamp room would make my crafting life much easier!! Love the way you used the misti!

    ReplyDelete
  132. Hello there, and happy 2019! Love your technique tutorial using the MISTI.
    I would love to have California Closet come over and help me organize my craft space! We just moved and I don't have the same set-up; nothing is at my finger-tips and my (crafting) desk has to do double duty with my work... So that's what I need this year, a crafting space design and a handy man!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Protected time to create. My husband is assisting me this year in helping me say no so I can spend more time learning new techniques & creating.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Love these gorgeous cards! More time in the day would definitely make my crafting life simpler - I simply lack it too often :-( That, and a brother scan and cut! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  135. Love the Misti, sure would make things easier. Liking this blog hop, Happy New Year

    ReplyDelete
  136. All I need is a cleaner desk so I can make better use of my crafty time!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Cute cards! I'm not just saying this, but a mini Misty would be a big help, for when I'm making smaller cards. Love the big one, but it takes a lot of room on my table.

    ReplyDelete
  138. My crafting life would be simpler if I could only finish unpacking in the new house and then turn my attention to my studio. I am hopeful!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Very Pretty! Happy New Year My Sweet Petunia! I love, love ALL my Misti's and cannot imagine my life without any of them!

    ReplyDelete
  140. More time would help, a less complex organizing system too perhaps.
    Happy New Year.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Wonderful cards! I love the misti!

    ReplyDelete
  142. A craft room where I could shut the door when company comes instead of having to clear off the kitchen table would make my crafting much easier and also less pain for my joints as it is hard for me to walk. But whether that ever happens or not I will still keep on crafting. And, I love my MISTI but it is starting to show stress on it so I may need to get a new one soon. I won't be crafting without one I know that. I would love to win this prize. Happy New Year to you as well.

    ReplyDelete
  143. LOVE this technique - will be trying it today! My crafting life would be simpler if I wasn't interrupted by the need to do household chores.

    ReplyDelete

  145. I have a mini Misti, but could really use and would love to have the original Misti, that and just more time in my craftroom.

  146. Cataloging my stamp sets and dies would probably help. I've swatched most of my inks, and that's helped.

  147. Two Miami's would really make crafting simpler!

  148. One of these Misti's would make my life
    easier. I throw away too many cards
    because they didn't stamp perfectly and
    I can't line them up again. The next
    help would be to spend more time crafting
    instead of going through all o the blogs
    I follow. Put the ideas to use.
    thanks for sharing txmlhl(at)yahoo(dot)com
    Happy New Year

  149. Your Misti has made my life simple for a good while. I couldn't have gotten through Christmas cards without using it for multiples. Can't do without. I have a large one but the Mini Misti would really help when I stamp someplace besides home. So easy to take along.

  150. The one thing I need to do my crafting is good lighting. Right now I don't and I would enjoy my projects more if I could see them.... Thank you for the chance to win a Misti. I have wanted one for a very long time. Happy New Year.

  151. These cards are beautiful, thank you for explaining !
    It sure would help to have some mistis to make card making easier ! (every year, I make Christmas (and other) cards to sell for a good cause - this year we gave all our profits to the research on Alzheimer desease)
    Thank you for your generous give-away; good luck to all of us !
    Happy, healthy, creative New Year from Belgium, Lieve

  154. Thanks for the stamping tips. I have a Misti and all I can say is that it changed my crafting forever. I never used stamps much at all until I got my original Misti and now I use stamps more than anything. Your invention has given me such pleasure . What I now need is more time to use it and sets of inks to use for layering stamps

  158. Having a second Misti would be fantastic. I have one and use it all the time I have a second one on my wish list especially when creating lots of cards.

  159. I probably need "more organization" of my craft supplies to make my crafting life simpler. I recently moved into a new home and now have a "permanent" craft room and I'm still trying to figure out the best use of my space.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Yes, the misti would make my crafting life so much easier (I don't have one, but would surely love and USE one!). I have many layer stamps, that I usually don't do a great job of lining up. This would work for me!

  173. Such a pretty set of cards... love the CAS design. That's my goal for this year... making simple, but elegant designs. A mini Misti would be nice, but I'd have to with a bigger craft room and organization are the only things that could help me at this point! LOL! Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  198. I need to take time to inventory my stamps and dies, I spend far too much time searching for specific items - even though I am fairly organized, something like evernote would make my life much easier. Thanks for the chance to win a MISTI bundle - would love to win and share this awesome tool with my sister. The MISTI has made my crafty life much easier in more ways than I can explain. Happy New Year!
