Team Tuesday with Altenew

 (Our team uses affiliate links at no cost to you)


Hello crafty friends!

It's Ceal, here. Today I am channeling my inner Jaycee Gasper with an Altenew die set and ink blending.

I watched a live with Jennifer and Jaycee using this die set and I just had to order it, it's so beautiful. I went back and watched the replay and crafted along with them. Jaycee has a way with ink blending like no other. I love how you get the colors with ink blending rather than colored cardstock. I am a fan! 

To make this card, I started with a white to folding A2 card base and a piece of white cardstock for the die cuts. I placed a Sticky Mat in the Original Misti to hold the die cut pieces as I ink blended. I didn't have the ink colors that they used on the live so I substituted distress inks. After I got all the pieces ink blended, I cut the outline pieces of the flowers and leaves out of goil foil paper.    

The outlines pieces to the flowers are very thin and delicate but they were so easy to add with the Precision Glue Press

To finish the card, I added the thanks sentiment cut twice out of white for dimension and glued it to a gold backer.

Do You Need Two Different MISTI Sizes?

Hello Friends,

I am excited to be back this month to share a fun card with you featuring some beautiful products. 



For this card, I used Copic Markers to color the floral arrangement and the beautiful Lovely Layers Hummingbird. I ink blended in Villainous Potion around the floral arrangement and heat embossed the sentiment in white.


Do you need two different MISTI sizes? Well need is an interesting word. For this card, I stamped my sentiment on the front using my Mini MISTI and it worked great.

However, after I completed the card I realized I wanted to stamp my name on the back of the card. When I tried to do this in the Mini MISTI with the card folded I could tell it was going to be an issue. I had already added the hummingbird and it was popped up on foam tape. 

So Original MISTI to the rescue. All my stamping still came out perfectly.


Here is the supply list for the items I used.

Stop and Smell the Wildflowers

***Our team uses affiliate links at no cost to you!***

Hello everyone!  I hope spring has come to your area.  Where I live the season comes with dramatic storms followed by brilliant blue skies. It has me reaching for my floral stamps and hoping for time to appreciate the flowers!  

For my latest project, I used a triangle in the new Creative Corners set to align the sentiment on a precise diagonal line. I also used the triangle to mask off the upper part of the card. To ensure my paper did not move during multiple reinkings of the stamp, I placed it approximately an inch from the corners of the Sticky Mat in the Original Black MISTI. This allowed me to stamp away from the empty corners of the large background stamp. 

Once I colored the image in vibrant colors, I added a black border diagonally with the Precision Glue Press. Finally, to finish off the card, I added a Double Dip Note to the inside.    


 I hope you are inspired to try out some of the amazing My Sweet Petunia tools!

Thanks for stopping by,
Angie

Lucky to Have

**Our team uses affiliate links at no charge to you!**

Hello everyone! I created something green with St. Patrick's Day just around the corner. When I create, I always feel lucky to have several MISTIs at my disposal. For precise coverage and alignment, I stamped the sentiment multiple times and left it on the Original  MISTI. Then, I moved to the Mini MISTI to stamp the clover. I keep my stamps in the MISTI until I finish a project so that I can easily make another if I make a mistake along the way. 

Additionally, I used the Cut Align Ruler, the Precision Glue Press, Sticky Mats, and the Alignment Grids. You can find these tools and more in the MSP Retail Shop, which you can access HERE

Happy Birthday Flowers

***Our team uses affiliate links when possible at no charge to you!***

 Hello there! Angie here, and I'm thrilled to feature a birthday card today! It was a lot of fun to make and I'm happy to tell you that the MISTI tool made inking this large stamp a breeze! To prevent the cardstock from moving during several inkings, I put a Sticky Mat inside my Teal Original MISTI. The Sticky Mat held the cardstock securely in place as I stamped repeatedly to get a complete impression. Moreover, I love using Double Dip notes inside my cards, especially when the card base is dark! Additionally, I used the Precision Glue Press to adhere the die-cut scene to the card base.

Below you will find a video featuring the new Creative Corners! Lydia shows what is new and several different ways to use them!

MISTI Tricks I Didn't Know About

 Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing a couple of MISTI tricks I never knew about. One of them I learned from Kristina Werner and the other I just kind of stumbled on. I am 100% certain many know this trick already, but for some reason, I didn't commit it to memory before now.


For this card, I created the shaker window by placing it in the MISTI and then lining the backing up over the open part with the sequins. Then I added the backing by pushing it up against the side and bottom of the MISTI walls. It worked perfectly.





I loved making the first one so much that I made a second one using the same technique but with a different concept. This time I made a window sentiment. 



I hope you like these cards. If you'd like to see the video you can check it out HERE on Wednesday 2/14 at 4pm PST.

The supplies I used to make these cards are listed here.

Team Tuesday with Concord & 9th

***Our team uses affiliate links at no cost to you***

Hey crafty friends! 
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing this masculine birthday card using the Original Misti, the Precision Glue Press and some Concord and 9th products. 
I started with a white top folding A2 card base and a white panel. I placed the panel in the Original Misti and used the Mod Turnabout stamp which were originally designed for the Original Misti. I stamped it in four different colors turning it 4 times. After I got it stamped out I ran it through the diecutting machine using a cover plate to add some texture.  
I cut two of the happy birthday to you out of 110lb cardstock and adhered them together with the Precision Glue Press.

Hug in a Mug and an Announcement!

***Our team uses affiliate links at no charge to you!***

Greetings! Angie here, with a cozy coffee card to share.  

But first, an important announcement! The Precision Glue Press is currently back in stock, and more will be available in February! 

I utilize My Sweet Petunia tools for every project, regardless of how simple or complex it may be! For this project, I used the Black Original MISTI to stamp the coffee cup and the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment.  Because the mini is small and light, it takes up very little space on my desk, which is why I always like to use it for sentiments.

I die-cut two tiny hearts from pink card stock, then colored them to match the stamped image.  I placed them on a well-loved Sticky Mat to color them. Since my sticky mat is not new, therefor less sticky, the hearts stuck to the mat well enough to color but came off the mat easily.

I use my Alignment Grids every time I stamp.  They are useful in making sure everything is precisely aligned. My final step in creating a card is to add the sentiment. I arrange the sentiment where I think it looks best, and then I gently place an alignment grid over the top without pressing the sentiment down. In this manner, I can make sentiment adjustments beneath the grid to ensure everything is precisely aligned.

I have attached Lydia's excellent video with tips on maximizing the Precision Glue Press's functionality. 


The stamp set used today is Cozy Vibes.  All card elements are listed on my blog and can be found at Impression Obsession.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
