MISTI Morning

 


Hello and welcome to the My Sweet Petunia blog. I made this card this morning in my currently non-air conditioned craft room. But life was so easy with my MISTI. I stamped WPlus9 Designs Flora and Fauna 3 with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Even though I was stamping onto Neenah Solar White Super Smooth 80lb card stock, I used my MISTI as I knew I would triple stamp this. I stamped the sentiment and die cut friend with my MISTI as well. All of this was quick because of the MISTI and I could color elsewhere due to the heat.  

By the way, if you spend $75 at My Sweet Petunia you can get a free MISTI bag while supplies last. I use my bag every time I fly or travel with my MISTI. I can pack it full and know my MISTI is safe.

Have a wonderful day;

Susan

Ink Pad Swatches with the MISTI

 


I love, love love, organizing my supplies.  I find that I tend to use my supplies more efficiently when I know what I have.  Ink swatches make it easier to see color combinations.  I also have found out what companies have identical colors.  

Here is a quick video that shows how I make my swatches.  Thanks for stopping by!!!

Purrfectly Wonderful Silhouettes

Lately, I have been in a Distress Ink mood and I am so thankful for the MISTI!  Before I had a MISTI, I avoided silhouette stamps.  It's almost impossible to get a rich impression on the first try, especially when stamping on Distress ink.  With the MISTI, multiple, perfectly aligned stampings are a breeze! Next, I drew a line with the MIS-T Ruler to ground Mr. Kitty.  I love these rulers because they are perfectly sized to use for card making!  They also have small grid lines to help with alignment!

Team Tuesday with Ceal



Hello friends! 
It's Ceal, here. Welcome to team tuesday! 
Today I am sharing a card using a mix of Concord & 9th and Pinkfresh Studio. 
I have linked to the products below using affiliate links where possible. 

To make this card I started with a white top folding ard basem a white panel and a black panel. 
The stamp set I used is a set that has a layering stencil to go with it and makes it super quick to make a card. 
I stamped the floral image down the used the stencil to color it. When coloring with Layering stencils I use Sticky Mat along the Original MISTI . I place my cardstock in the corner, this allows me to line up each stencil perfectly.  Next I cut out all the pieces which was also super easy because it all cuts out at the same time, used some of them and added a little to my floral images. 
I used a cover plate by Concord & 9th cut out of white paper to contrast the black. 
I finished the card with a sentiment also by C9.

Hi crafty friends and welcome back.  It's Sandi here and today I have a New Cardmaking Video for you, Pinkfresh Studio Cosmos Bunch 2 Cards.  I did two different layouts and two sets of colors to provide as much inspiration as possible with this fabulous Cosmos Bunch bundle. 

 To say I am over the moon with the Stamp/Die/Stencil Combo that Pinkfresh has come out with is an understatement.  They are so versatile and can made card making so simple.  I can color the image, I can die cut the image, I can stencil the image - there are so many possibilities.  

Today I'm playing with the layering stencil bundle as there are 5 stencils in this set and the Misti Sticky Mats are perfect for this technique as you will see in the video below.

Altenew Swatch with the MIS-T Ruler


Hi everyone!!  It is Iliana.....It has been a long time since I have actually written my own blog post.  The last few years have been a whirlwind.  I started the process of moving from Illinois to Texas to be closer to my family.  I am just now getting my craft room all put together.  I promise to post a video tour soon.  

Today, I wanted to show you one of the uses of the MIS-T ruler.  I love to use the grid squares to line things up.  The following video will show you how the MIS-T ruler make things easier.

Morning Coffee & Hello

***Affiliate links used when possible at no extra charge to you!***

Hello, I love creating coffee-themed cards so today, I decided to feature this fun set by Impression Obsession.  The cup and saucer are separate stamps so that the cup can be stamped alone or together as I have done here.  I love this set not only because I love coffee sets but also for the mix & match possibilities!

I was so happy to have more than one MISTI to create this project! I put the saucer in one MISTI and the cup in the other.   The sugar cubes went in the top corner of the MISTIwith the cup.  Then the coffee cream went in my Mini MISTI
I stamped all the elements on copy paper first to see if the design was appealing.  I ended up trying several different backgrounds because with the stamps in the MISTIs it was a snap to stamp the design over and over. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's Graduation Season!

Spring brings a LOT of graduations - it seems pretty much April to June someone is celebrating a milestone achievement. Today I have a graduation design that is easy to make with the help of some fabulous dies, and beautiful papers - and, of course, my MINI MISTI!

Every school but one that I have attended has had the colors of blue and gold. From elementary school to my university (in another state), and ALL of the schools in the town where I currently live - blue and gold are popular choices. This classy card uses amazing papers and two sets available from Stamp Simply.

I cut a piece of the beautiful Ink Drops Candy 6x6 by Craft Consortium for my background, and stamped one of the Graduation Sentiments twice along the bottom. I used the gridlines on my MINI MISTI to line it up. I used another small piece of the paper and stamped "To the graduate" -- both are with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. All edges were distressed with a distress tool. I cut the cap and diploma from gold shimmer cardstock, and popped them up with foam tape on their matted panels. For a little extra shimmer, I tied metallic thread around the center of the card, fanning it out for interest.


Supplies from Stamp Simply:
  • Graduation Sentiments
  • Congrats Grad Steel Dies
  • Craft Consortium Ink Drops Candy 6x6
  • VersaFine Ink Pad - Onyx Black

Other Supplies:

  • MINI MISTI
  • distress tool (for card edges)
  • gold shimmer, dark blue, light blue cardstock
  • metallic blue thread
  • foam tape

Misti: Field of Wildflowers

 


Hello and welcome to the My Sweet Petunia blog for Team Tuesdays. I am posting an older card because my husband and I ripped apart my craft room this morning. It was somewhat impulsive but my mojo is almost gone and my poor MISTIs keep getting lost. We had so much fun rearranging everything, I still have to put away just about all my supplies. However, my MISTIs will have their own special place. 

For the card, I used the Wildflower Stamp and die set from Reverse Confetti's May release. I really love this image but because the die cut shape is so intricate you really do need your MISTI. I stamped this out once but double stamped it to catch all the details. I also die cut the shape out twice so I could add some dimension. I stamped the sentiment with my mini-MISTI with the sticky pad. I lined everything up in the MISTI using my magnets and the MISTI along with the L shaped Creative Corner. I tucked a small tag behind the panel and called it done.

Thank You Berry Much


Hi everyone,
Ilina here taking over the My Sweet Petunia blog today and sharing a sweet card using the Catherine Pooler Designs Strawberries and Jam stamp set and dies.
To make the card I started by die cutting bunch of pieces from white card stock.
Once I die cut the amount of die cuts I needed I created a jig using darker cardstock from the negative space and placed it in my MISTI in which I previously placed a sticky mat.
I placed one white die cut in the negative space at a time and using the set acetate sheet with the printed image I positioned the stamp and picked it up with my MISTI door. Repeat for all images. Stamp all images using the desired colors.
Cut white panel measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and assemble the die cut elements. Adhere to white note card and you are done!
Hint: this method is great for mass producing!

Layering Roses with Layered Inks

Hello friends!! It’s Channin here and today I’m sharing a bold floral card I created with a beautiful layering stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. To create the perfect pink rose I employed several tricks to get just the right shade and I can’t wait to share them with you!

To create this card I started with stamping the roses from the Antique Layering Roses stamp set. There are four layers for each rose and for each layer I used a combination of Distress Inks to create the perfect shade. Starting with layer one, I first inked the stamp up with Spun Sugar and stamped twice. I then inked up the stamp with Worn Lipstick but I used a foam blending tool apply the ink to the stamp and then stamped the layer. The foam blending tool creates a lighter application resulting in a lighter shade. 



For the second layer of the roses I inked up the stamp in Worn Lipstick and then stamped. Next, with a foam blending tool I inked it up with Picked Raspberry and then stamped. Then for layer 3, I first stamped the stamp twice in Picked Raspberry and then inked up the stamp with Abandoned Coral and then stamped. For the final layer, I first inked up the stamp with Picked Raspberry and stamped three times. Then I inked up the stamp with Candied Apple and stamped twice.


Next, I stamped my leaves. For the first layer of the leaves I stamped them in Shaded Lilac. I then inked up the upper third of the leaf with Blueprint Sketch using a foam blending tool and stamped again. Next, I ink up the second layer of the leaf in Shaded Lilac and stamped twice. I then inked up the layer with Blueprint Sketch using a foam blending tool and stamped again. For the last layer, inked it up in Blueprint Sketch and stamped three times. 



After I had stamped all my roses and leaves I then die cut them out with the matching dies. I then created a watercolored background on Bristol paper with Tombow Dual Brush pens. When the panel had dried I then adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I created a sentiment by first die cutting “BIG’s” out of white cardstock using the Big Buzzword Honey Cuts. I then stacked and adhered two layers of the “BIG” die cut together and then die cut a shadow layer out of vellum. Next, I adhered the vellum over the stacked letters and then finished the sentiment by adhering the remaining cardstock letters on top. I then stamped and white heat-embossed two sub-sentiments from the Big Buzzword Stamp Set onto black cardstock. I then finished the card by adhering the images and sentiments to the card front. 


I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Spring card Camp meets Team Tuesday

 


Hello friends and welcome to Team Tuesday. It's Ceal, here. 
Today I am sharing a couple cards that I created using a technique that I learned when taking the Spring Card Camp. 

The technique is ink lifting and for the first card I used a background by Erin Lee Creative and the second card is a background stamp by Simon Says Stamp. 
To make these cards I started with white top folding card bases, black panels for mats and a white panel to ink blend on. 
I placed the panel on the Sticky Mat in the Original MISTI and laid the background stamp over it and then picked it up with the door of the Misti. I inked up the stamp with embossing ink and then stamped it down twice to get good coverage and embossed it with white powder.

If I tried this technique without a MISTI, I would be throwing away a lot of panels.
If you haven't bought yourself a Sticky Mat yet I would advise you to go buy one right away, they come three to the set and to me they are a necessity in the craft room.

A Big Hi!

Hi, there!  I just love featuring stamps and dies in different ways!  This is a pretty winter wreath by MFT, but just by coloring it in Spring colors, it becomes a spring wreath!  The MISTI is such a wonderful tool when it comes to a project like this, as both the wreath and the sentiment required stamping multiple times.  


The MISTI is like a potato chip in that you can't have just one! I use several MISTIs every time I stamp.  I left the wreath stamp in the MISTI until the project was completely finished.  Then with a second MISTI, I stamped the sentiment.  One of my favorite things is having an extra Mini MISTI to keep my signature stamp in at all times.  It's such a time-saver with no more alignment struggles on every card.  So sorry if you received a crooked signature from me in the past! :)

Framed by MISTI

 


Hello and welcome to Team Tuesdays. 

Honestly, I think my MISTIs are beautiful enough to frame. But not one of them has ever broken so why put a very useful tool in a frame. When I retire, I will frame one! This frame card was super easy to make with my standard sized MISTI.

I used the individual images from Impression Obsession Framed and several of the Impression Obsession inks to form my own patterned paper. It was quick and easy. After I completed all the stamping, I trimmed the panel to 4" x 5.25". I adhered this to a piece of purple card stock. It is from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow card stock pack but I am unsure of the name. 

Once this was all adhered, I die cut the sentiment from white card stock twice and from the purple card stock once. I offset the white from the purple and adhered all the layers with Bearly Precision Craft glue. 

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by;

Celebration Card and Winner Announcement


Hello crafty friends! I'm so glad to be here and sharing this very cute card where I did some, ink blending, stenciling, stamping and coloring. For this card, I am featuring stamps, dies and a stencil from Picket Fence Studios. The inks are the Oxide Inks from Ranger and  have also used the Mini MISTI and the Mis-T Rulers. 

Before I begin, I would like to announce My Sweet Petunia winner for the Altenew Hop. Congratulations to Jeanne Ragan, please email to hello@mysweetpetunia.com to claim your prize and thank you so much for hoping with us. 




Let's start! Using the Life Changing Blender Brushes I applied Distress Oxide inks to an A2 panel and the colors were Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Saltwater Taffy. Once I finished ink blending, I placed the Retro Burst Stencil by PFS on top of my panel and applied the same colors of ink through the stencil. Then, I put my panel inside the Mini MISTI and and stamped a sentiment from Penguins Wanna Have Fun Stamp Set and then I heat embossed it. I also adhered this panel to a folded card base using glue.







I placed another piece of cardstock inside the Mini MISTI and stamped some penguins from Penguins Wanna Have Fun Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. Next, using the coordinating dies from the same stamp set I die cut all penguins and glued two of them directly to my background panel and the other two were adhered using black foam to give them more dimension.





A rectangle frame was also added to the background of this card and I used the Waffle Flower Nesting Rectangle Frames Die. I stamped a bubble with a heart next to one of the penguins too and a second sentiment was stamped and die cut too using the same color of cardstock from the rectangle frame. This sentiment was from Swanky Friendship Sentiments Stamps from PFS.



Finally, as the final touch I added some hearts and sequins from Honey Bears Sequin Mix Plus and this card was done. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day. All supply links, part of my affiliate links, are listed below at no cost to you.

Your friend, 
Karen
