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;

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!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Below you will find a list of all the My Sweet Petunia items I used in creating my project.

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. 

 All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links may be used at no cost to you and product disclosure is below.  As always, I appreciate your support of my Blog and YouTube Channel.

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.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

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:

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