Team Tuesday with Kia

 Kia here with you today to share this clean and simple card using my Original Misti and Penny Black stamps.

I did do a video, but for some reason my camera decided not to focus .... need I say more? Annoying!
 I decided to place my stamp slightly off centre for interest. 

And this is why I love Misti. 

I coloured the stamp as I went along using Distress Markers in Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover and Peacock Feathers. I spritzed after each addition of colours and cleaned the stamp periodically so as to not get a build up of water that could go where it was not wanted.

Colouring this way would have been unheard of before Misti. 

Once I was done with the leaves I cleaned the stamp and proceed to colour the berries using Worn Lipstick and White Jelly Pen.
To finish up I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Paradise. I then added the bird, again using the Paradise Ink. 

Although it does not show in the pictures, I did add Nuvo Shimmering Pen in Midas Touch to the berries, and also added a few sequins.

Thank you for joining me today.

MISTI: Concord & 9th Just Love




I was good about posting the second half of the summer.  Well, I was actually gone to Houston during all those posts.  I had planned ahead.  Then I got home and nothing.  Well here is a card I actually made two months ago.  I meant to post it the last week I was gone.  My plan was to get home and continue my streak.

Then life happens.  I missed two weeks...or was it three.  I am not sure.  All I know is summer is sadly over and I am back to life.

See the video below to see how this card as well as a few others were made.

Team Tuesday with Ilina: Quick and Easy mass producing

Hi everyone!
Ilina here taking over the My Sweet Petunia blog for a Team Tuesday. Today I am sharing a quick video and how quickly is to mass produce cards using your MISTI. 
I am using the new Hero Arts Color Layering Moth and I am stamping punch of them directly onto already die cut white card stock and playing with few fun color combinations. I made only 4 cards and saved the rest of the images I stamped for future use. 
My moto is: when you have your MISTI out why not stamp bunch when everything is already lined up. 

Watch the video below to see how this cards came to be!

Team Tuesday with Kia

We have a few changes coming here at My Sweet Petunia, so for today I am sharing different projects aided by MISTI.


On Wednesday nights I usually have watercolour classes, however a couple of times a year our teacher takes a break. So during those breaks the rest of us get together and we make cards.
A few of the girls are getting into the card making and buying their own goodies, but most come just for the fun of it. 

You can see in the top picture that Misti plays a major role in our card making nights. I now have the ladies tooting the horn of My Sweet Petunia and they all now what it is. 
One lady had me laughing when she said if I won a Million Dollars I would buy more MISTI's. 😂
On our last Wednesday we used Alcohol inks on Yupo. Most had never heard of Yupo before, let alone Alcohol ink. 

It is always fun to see what they will do. I am never disappointed at their creativity.

Thanks for visiting My Sweet Petunia. I hope today's post reminds you of when you first met MISTI.

Team Tuesday with Stephanie - Stencil Masking

Today I'm sharing some cards using my Memory MISTI and products from Gina K. Designs.

But first ... drum roll ... the winner of the $50 My Sweet Petunia Gift Certificate from the My Sweet Petunia and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop is ... Tanya Terrones with this comment


Great masculine feel for the card. I like the texture stamps.
Tanya - e-mail your information to hello@mysweetpetunia.com

Here is the first one featuring a masked stencil technique



I started by cutting one of the Ovals from Gina K. Designs Oval Dies using Gina K. Designs Masking Magic, which has the perfect thickness and adhesive to make this technique flawless.  I find my Memory MISTI to be perfect for techniques like this one.



Next I adhered the mask to my my stone cardstock and then attached the Gina K. Designs Water Droplets Stencil using Pixie Spray (seriously this stuff is magic for stencils).


Next, I pulled out my Life Changing Blender Brush and three shades of Gina K. Designs Dye Ink - Blue Denim, Tranquil Teal & Turquoise Sea


I randomly applied the colors (I just used the same brush for all three) until I got the depth I wanted, then I removed the stencil and then removed the mask.


One more little trick with my MISTI ... I like to use the lines on the mouse pad to help me line-up embellishments like these gorgeous Love from Lizi Peel Off stickers that I added to finish the card.  I lined the largest one on the left line of the black ... the smallest on the right side of the block ... and then positioned the middle side between the two.

The sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Have Faith Stamp Set stamped in Blue Denim Ink.



I re-used the same Masking Magic Oval for my second card.  It features the same technique, but this time I used Glitter Glitz Gel instead of ink.


Here was the look after removing both the stencil and the mask (I just used the blade of my craft knife to pry it up).  I combined Turquoise Sea and Grass Green Glitz Glitter gels, overlapping them on the corners using the Gina K. Designs Lovely Lace Stencil.




Seriously ... doesn't that gorgeous sparkle make you happy?  Stamped another sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Have Faith Stamp Set in the masked area.


I hope today's tutorial gave you some masking ideas ... I can't wait to see what you create.

Unity Stamps Feather Soft Love


In my head I imagined a very different card when I started.  I must have tried three different techniques before settling on this.  Once I figured it out, it was easy to make.  I love the way the color pops on the black background.


I did not want to have a banner sentiment.  I felt like it detracted from the feather.  The sentiment is on the last chance option on Concord and 9th's website.  So if you want it you better act fast. 

Tell me which you like best, the black or gold sentiment.   Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the video.
