Slim Scenes and the MISTI

Hello! Angie here! For today's project, I pulled out a stamp that had not seen ink yet.  I really like my NEW Original MISTI when stamping a Slim Scene.  If the ink coverage isn't absolutely perfect the first time it's easy to add another layer when utilizing the MISTI.  A fun technique I like to use with the MISTI and a Silhouette stamp is to stamp in a light ink tone and add highlights with a dark ink tone.  To add the dark highlights simply grab a piece of cling wrap and place it around a finger.  Next, tap your finger in the dark ink and randomly add color to the silhouette stamp.  Lastly, close the MISTI lid to stamp over the lighter image.  The technique adds interest and texture! 

The MISTI is magic when it comes to stamping multiples! Once the stamp is in the MISTI it's a breeze to create more than one background!  

I love how the gray and black trees turned out! For a pop of color, I die-cut some cardinals and placed them in the trees.  Lastly, I added a Slim Sentiment.

Next, I used a light tone of brown on the trees then added a darker brown using the technique mentioned above.  I created a scene by scattering woodland animals among the trees. So cute!  I die cut the layer with the small scallop die, and lastly, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Getting Started on Christmas

Hello and welcome to another edition of Team Tuesday!
It's Ceal, here. I am getting started with Christmas cards and sharing these two with you. 
For these two cards I used the new Tiny Trees Turnabout. If you have followed me any at all, you know that I love turnabouts. They allow you to make so many backgrounds at once to have to use later. And they were made especially made for the Misti.

The color combos I used are Midnight, Oceanside, Parsley, and Clover for the first card and Stardust, Grapefruit, Aqua Sky and Oceanside for the second one. 
I added some gems to the first card and kept the second one plain. 
I also created some more backgrounds for a later use.
