You and I

Hello!  Today I am sharing a fun tip when using stencils.

**Affiliate links may be used at no cost to you!** 

I placed a piece of cardstock in the middle of a Sticky Mat, then positioned the stencil over the cardstock and pressed the sides of the stencil onto the Sticky Mat. The Sticky Mat holds the stencil in place without tape or Pixie Spray! This technique works best on a Sticky Mat that has been used a few times and isn't as sticky as brand new.  However, I have used regular cardstock with new Sticky Mats.  To release the cardstock without tearing, I bend the Sticky Mat away from the cardstock.

The rest of the card is pretty simple.  I used a Mini MISTI for the sentiments and an Original Black MISTI for the stencil/Sticky Mat and image.  

 I also used the following tools:

Team Tuesday with Ceal

(Our team uses affiliate links when possible)
Hey friends! 
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing a card made using a stamp and stencil by Altenew. Not only is the Misti a great tool to use for stamping but the sticky mats are a necessity for stenciling. 
To make this card, I started with a white top folding A2 card base and a couple of white panels. One I cut down and used with a 3D embossing folding and the other for stamping the image.  
 I placed the panel in the Original MISTI and stamped the floral image, next I placed the stickmat in the Original MISTI and used it to hold the panel while I ink blended the colors using the coordinating stencils.
 Next I cut out the image using the coordinating  die and then popped it up on the embossed panel. To finish the card, I added a sentiment from The Greetery.

Nothing in the World

The MISTI is my favorite tool for producing watercolor projects and multiples!

 I used the Black Original MISTI to stamp the cat. Then I used both My Original MISTI and Teal Original MISTI for the sentiments.  Next, I colored the cat, leaving the stamps in the MISTIs. I was so glad I left the stamps in the MISTIs because I had a visitor! Rocket jumped on my desk to inform me that I had not given him enough attention, and smudged one of the cards! The MISTIs made the process of restamping the panel quick and easy.  The irony was not lost on me that my cat destroyed a picture of a cat!  Hehe.

Along with the MISTIs, I used,

You are an Angel

 Hello everyone! Anna here, with greetings the pacific northwest! The card I’m sharing today was made using recently released stamp from Whipper Snapper DesignsAdorable sunflower angel themed card with fun bees throughout the image and sentiment, paired with a sheet from the Bzzz patterned paper collection from Impression Obsession. The stamp set is perfect for making cards and tags for friends near and far.

I love how the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp perfect images on textured watercolor paper, every time! On card panels or on smaller sentiment banners, I can stamp with precision every time, 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!

Scrapbooking With The MISTI

Hi Friends,

Wendy here.

Today I am sharing a fun idea using my new Memory MISTI. The Memory MISTI is such a cool tool. I'll do a lot with this when creating my scrapbook for my daughter, Macie, over the next few years. In today's post and video, I just got my feet wet learning how to use this tool. 

I started by using this large 6x6 background stamp to stamp in the bottom right corner. Then I turned the cardstock 180 degrees and stamped again in Blueberry ink from Concord & 9th.

This gave a little extra interest in the background of the photos. In hindsight I wish I would have layered the die cut letters and journaling over the stamping vs the photos. But, I am learning and getting back in the scrapbooking game.

All in all, I am very happy with the way my first scrapbook pages in 10 years turned out. It's a journey, not a race or destination. As I get my feet wet in this side of papercrafting again I feel excited to explore the new options and ideas that will come my way.

Fair warning, I share about life and adventures along the way. I'm not strictly a teacher/cardmaker/crafter I am kind of a vlogging crafter. I hope enjoy the stories and sharing along with the crafting.

Here is my supply list for this project.
