Watercolor Tags

 Hello everyone! Anna here, with greetings from an unseasonably warm pacific northwest! The tags I’m sharing today were made using recently released dies and stamps from Impression Obsession. Adorable winter themed stamp sets filled with cute a seasonal sentiments are perfect for making cards and tags.  I also used some of my watercolor blending panels for my tag bases. Aren’t they fun!? Learn how to make these fun watercolor tags in this video.

I love how the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp a sentiment several times, giving me the perfect placement and impression for every project!  Sentiments are stamped perfectly placed, and stamped images on watercolor paper (or other textured papers) are a breeze to create!

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

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.

Valentine's Easel Fun Fold Card


Hello Friends,
I am sharing a fun Valentine's Easel Fun Fold Card. The MISTI came in so handy for stamping my penguin and my sentiment. 

This cute little penguin image is from the Flippin Best stamp set by the Pajama Crafter Stamps. 

The best part of stamping your sentiment with the MISTI is perfect placement and perfect images. It really doesn't get any easier or any better.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card.
Here are all the products I used to create this card.

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!

Bird Tags


 Hello everyone! Anna here, with greetings from a cold and snowy pacific northwest! The tag I’m sharing today was made using stamps from REDlead Paper Works, as well as the Vintage Letters 6x6 paper and Stitched Tag from Impression Obsession. Here’s a quick and easy way to create beautiful tags, using a bit of fussy cutting and “magic”!

I love how the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp a sentiment or image several times, giving me the perfect placement and impression for every project! 

I created a video showing how I made this tag, and demonstrate how the Mini Misti is such a valuable tool when stamping on watercolor paper. Check it out!
