Team Tuesday Twofer

 


Hello crafty friends!
It's Ceal, here for today's edition of Team Tuesday.
I have a twofer to share with you today. I created both cards using a Turnabout plaid stamp and another set by Concord & 9th which are linked below. 
Our teams uses affiliate links at no additional cost to you.

To make my cards I started with white top folding card bases cut to A2 size. For the top card I used a kraft panel but used the same colors as I did in the card below. You can see how different they look just with different colored bases. 
To create the background on the first card, I placed my panel of kraft cardstock and the Turnabout stamp in the Teal Misti 2.0 and stamped/turned 4 times in the following colors, Sea Glass, Grapefruit, Stardust and Sprout. I added some gold lines and white lines using the Mis-T ruler.

 For the second card after I created the background the same way in the same colors but on a white panel instead of kraft. I used the dies from the All the Merries to cut the tree, star and ornaments out of some gold glitter paper.

How to Multi Layer Stamp with the Misti

 

Hi cardmaking friends and welcome back.  It's Sandi MacIver here and today's card making video tutorial is Multi Layer Stamping with the Misti and mass producing Christmas Cards. 

 I'm using the new Printmaking Pines layering stamp set from Simon Says Stamps to make some "MERRY and BRIGHT" cards. AND, my fabulous NEW, TEAL MISTI - I love this color so much Swoon!

 Also, I'm using Simon's Pawsitively Ink pads.  Each color comes in three shades, making them perfect for this stamping technique.  In the video I share a couple of Ink Pad Color Swatch Sheets that I created - you can DOWNLOAD YOURS HERE 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. See below for my full disclosure



     
In today's card making video I also show you how the multi layer stamping technique is perfect for mass producing cards.  I make 8 cards in less than 1 hour with this technique.  I'm sure that's a new record for me, haha.  

 

How to create the Multi Layer stamping with the Misti:

Start by cutting white Hammermill cardstock 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and place one into the Misti.

Next, stamp the first layer, take out the cardstock, and place a new one one. 

Then, repeat until all the stamped layers are done. 

Finally, stamp and heat emboss the sentiment.

Next, place the art pieces into a spatter box and splatter with gold paint.  

Finally, die cut the pieces with the Stitched Rectangle Wafer die.  This creates a clean rounded edge, with a beautiful stitched border.

 

Putting the cards together:

Start by cutting A2 card bases in Hammermill White, 4-1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5-1/2". 

Next, cut card fronts from colored cardstock 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and adhere to the card base. Then, use foam tape to adhere to the card front.

Painting and Stamping with the MISTI

Hello, creative friends! Today I am sharing how easy it is to stamp on a watercolor using My Sweet Petunia tools!   First, I watercolored a winter sky on 100% cotton watercolor paper.   Next, I placed a Sticky Mat in my Teal MISTI. The Sticky Mat held the watercolor in place while I reinked the stamps several times.  Next, I grabbed the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment.  The Mini MISTI is ideal for stamping small images and sentiments.  Lastly, I used the 0 centering feature of the Cut-Align Ruler for perfect alignment of the sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Every day is a Coffee Day

Hi everyone!
Ilina here! Today I am sharing a card using the newest Catherine Pooler release bundle called Java Fix. And there is nothing better that defines me besides coffee ;) 
To make the card I started by creating my card base. I cut piece of the Java Fix paper to A2 and adhered to a top folding note card. I also added another piece of cardstock (A2) in between to make it more sturdy.
Next I cut the round corner rectangle panel using a die from the Coffee Shop die set and stamped the sentiment in my MISTI. Set aside to dry (I usually like to set black stamped image aside to dry so I do not smear it).
Die cut and stamp the images using my MISTI and the amazing STICKY Mats!!! I started with die cutting plain white cardstock, then using the negative and a sticky mat, I stamped the images on the die cuts. For the coffee tumbler, I stamped two of them, one in Shea Butter and one in Spruce, cut the cozy and the lid from the Spruce one, and adhered on the Shea Butter one using foam squares!

Once I had all the elements, I used my Mis-T ruler to adhere the rectangle with the sentiment to make sure it's straight and centered. then added the coffee mug and tumbler.

Winter Scene With Ceal Pritchett


Hello Everyone!
It's Ceal, here on a wednesday for Team Tuesday. Today I am sharing this card made using my new Teal and Black Mistis, Sticky Mats and products from three different companies and all will be linked below as our team uses affiliate links at no extra cost to you but when used they help create a little revenue for us.

For the details of my card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I placed the panel down on a sticky mat and then added ink, The sticky mat holds the panel in place while you blend. I did this for all six stencils. 
After I got it all blended I used a stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio set for the greeting that I received in a retreat I participated in so it may not be available to the public yet but I linked another that is close it. I embossed the greeting in silver powder and then cut it out with the coordinating die. 
The deer is from a Gina K Designs set and was stamped multiple times using the Misti to get good coverage since I had ink blended the tree first. Seems like the set I used with the deer has been discontinued  but I linked another that was close to it.

Teal MISTI Inspired

 Hello, everyone, Angie here! I am featuring a couple of cards today.  In previous posts I have mentioned how much I love having more than one MISTI; today, I will show why.  


*** Affiliate links used in this post.  When you shop through my links I receive compensation at no cost to you. Thank you so very much!***

In my new Teal MISTI, I placed a piece of cardstock and then drew a diagonal line with one of the triangles from the Creative Corners set.  Next, I placed the sentiment stamp on the pencil line and closed the MISTI lid.  I erased the pencil line and then stamped the sentiment twice for a crisp impression. 


For the next step, I positioned the corner magnets in the corners of the MISTI.  This enabled me to stamp leaves off the edge of the cardstock.  Now you will see my "Double MISTI tip" in action.  I placed my cardstock in the Black MISTI and stamped leaves randomly around the sentiment.  


The first card I created with the above method was the orange card pictured in the next photo.  Because the sentiment stamp was still in the first MISTI, it was easy to create another card inspired by the TEAL MISTI!  :)


Thank you so much for stopping by!

Starry Snowman


Hello everyone! Anna here! The card I’m sharing today was made using the new Starry Snowman image and one of my favorite stamps called Montana Sweetheart, both from Whipper Snapper Designs. 


I stamped the snowman on watercolor paper using a permanent black ink. I stamped Montana Sweetheart randomly using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to add some visual interest to the background. I splattered some gold watercolor pigments over the card once everything was painted and assembled. I love the look of the gold splatters over the image!

Using a Mini MISTI is my favorite way to stamp on watercolor paper. The texture of watercolor paper can be challenging to get a good impression without making multiple impressions. Thankfully, the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp an image several times, giving me the perfect impression for every project!

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

Hey card making friends, thanks for stopping in.  It's Sandi MacIver here and in today's new card making video I share some card making tricks I use almost daily using my MISTI STICKY MATS

Today's card project is created with the November Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.  There are some great products in this kit again this month and while I only used a few of them to create this pretty card, I'm hoping to circle back at a later date and play with more.

Celebrating You!

Hello, creative friends!  Angie here with a sweet project dear to my heart! Our firstborn is getting married in a few days, and his fiance loves daisies. One of my favorite things about cardmaking is that I can tailor my project to the recipient!
 
  I have mentioned before that one of the MISTI superpowers is stamping on watercolor paper; it's never more true than when working with a large stamp.  I  reinked this large stamp several times to get a clean image on the textured 100% watercolor paper.  The MISTI made it easy to create this unique gift.

 I painted the flower centers with Quinacridone Gold. Once the centers were dry I painted the flower petals with clean water, one flower at a time.  Next, I dropped Paynes Gray near the flower center and dabbed the color away when it flowed too far down the petal.  For the stems, I used a green mix already in my palette.  Lastly, I loaded my brush with Paynes Gray for splatters.  Once again, the MISTI made quick work of the sentiment even with its bold lettering in the first word!

Gingers & Candy Canes on Watercolor Paper


Hello everyone! Anna here! The card I’m sharing today was made using the new Gingers & Candy Canes image recently released from Whipper Snapper Designs. 


Using a Mini MISTI is my favorite way to stamp on watercolor paper. The texture of watercolor paper can be challenging to get a good impression without making multiple impressions. Thankfully, the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp an image several times, giving me the perfect impression for every project!

I created a video showing how I used the Mini MISTI to create a card using the same techniques used on today’s card. Check it out!

Team Tuesday With Hero Arts


Hello friends!
Welcome to Team Tuesday! 
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing a couple cards using a Hero Arts set that I made quite a few cards with. I am sharing two of them here today on the My Sweet Petunia blog and if you follow me on my personal blog, Simply Beautiful I will share more there.

To make the first card I started with a top folding white card base, a white panel and a black panel for the mat. I created a brick background using the cobblestone stencil with Fired Brick distress ink.
I stamped the Christmas tree in the Original Misti and then used one of the sticky mats to hold it while I colored it using the stencil. I used some of the Berry Hero Wax for the baubles and some Hero Glitter Paste for the garland. The presents I stamped and colored using OLO markers.



The second card I started with a white top folding card base and ink blended Spun Sugar directly on the card base using the Snowflake stencil. For the baubles on this tree I used Gold Hero Wax and Hero Glitter paste for the garland. I embossed the present and skirt with gold embossing powder and then colored them using OLO markers.

Spellbinders Christmas Pups Card #1

Start by die cutting the 4 x 5-1/4 card front with the Winter Borders Tinsel Time Collection die. 
Next, place a Peridot colored mat behind it and a strip of red cardstock along the top.
Finally, attach it to a side folding A2 white card base. 
Use the Misti to stamp all the images in black ink and then color with copic markers.
Next, cut them out with the coordinating dies. 
Place the card back into the Misti to stamp the sentiment in the center front. 
Finally, use foam squares to attach the pups and other embellishments.

Spellbinders Christmas Pups Card #2

Start by embossing the 4 x 5/14" white card front with the Holly Flourish embossing folder.  This carries the holly theme from the first card to the next two cards.
Next, attach the card front to the top folding A2 white card base. Use the Misti to stamp the corgi, color and cut out with the coordinating die. 
Next, die cut the oval frame from the Special Pet Delivery Die set in Peridot and attach to the card front with the corgi in the center. 
Finally, stamp color and cut out the two Christmas ornaments and add them to the top of the frame. Finish with a red and white striped bow. 
Use the Misti to stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink onto a scrap of black cardstock.  Emboss with gold embossing powder.  Trim and add to the card front under the frame.

The steps are identical for card 2 just a different dog and embellishments. 
I love the punny sentiments in this stamp set, so add the Dachshund Through the Snow for this one. Finally, embellish, with some Red Color Essentials Gems. 
 That's it for my share today, hope you liked the cards.

MISTI Rescues a Dry Ink Pad

 


Hello and welcome to Team Tuesdays! My card today features my MISTI along with my Karin Markers. I loaded the stamps from RevProerse Confetti Poinsettia onto the MISTI door and triple stamped them with Versamark Ink onto Canson XL watercolor. Why did I have to stamp three times onto a relatively smooth paper? Because I let my Versamark Ink pad dry out and there was no reinker here at home. In fact, I had two dry Versamark pads. However, I was able to overcome this by using my MISTI. The stamps were aligned on the door already and the sticky pad and magnets were holding the paper. It was easy to "ink up" the stamps three times so that I could heat emboss the images with white embossing powder.

Once this was done, I used my Karin markers to color in the poinsettia and the holly leaves and berries. I also stamped Happy Holidays from Joyful Holiday Wishes. With the MISTI I was able to stamp on paper that been through my paper crimper. The sentiment came out quite crisp despite the crimped paper.  Almost anything can be done with the MISTI!

MISTI and Watercolor Paper

I had fun this week painting a pumpkin patch scene for Watercolor Wednesday.  So, I thought I would grab a stamp and paint a Fall scene for this blog post. Stamping on watercolor paper is just one of MISTI's superpowers.  Another MISTI superpower is stamping silhouettes, and on rough watercolor paper at that!  Simply place the watercolor paper in MISTI, stamp, and repeat as many times as needed for a rich dark perfect impression!
