MISTI: Concord and 9th Unicorn Awesomeness and Sunshine turnabout

Hi stampers!
I am back with more Concord and 9th goodness! I just love this unicorn stamp! So I used the Sunshine turnabout along with A Muse studio pigment inks and the Unicorn awesomeness set. 

Watch the video below to see how this card came to be, and the list of supplies is on the bottom of this post. 




Hero Arts stencils and foiling using Transfer Gel

Hi stampers! 
I am back again today with these two beauties using the gorgeous Glorious Petal stencil from Hero Arts along with the Hearts Infinity dies and Thanks and Hello Stamp and cut! 
I used the Therm-o-web transfer gel to do the stenciling, then let it dry and applied Opal deco foil using my laminator. The results are gorgeous! 
To get some dimensions on the thanks and hello die cuts, I cut them three times each and adhered them together ( I applied stick it adhesive on the back of my card stock which made stacking them pretty easy).

I will have video later today, so come back ;) 




Concord and 9th - Layered stenciling with MISTI

 *** VIDEO ADDED**** 
Hi stampers!

This is the first post for today. I have couple more to follow, as well I will be adding the videos later today. Last week was extremely busy at work and school prep (my oldest one is starting Kindergarten this week and I find it totally insane for school to be starting this early and in GA when it's HOT). 
I have these two cards that I made with the new Concord and 9th Aloha bundle and use my MISTI for the stenciling. The magnets hold the stencils nicely and you don't need to worry about taping anything down and the tape tearing your paper! 

Come back later for the video. Supplies are listed at the end of this post!

Then using black Copic multilines I colored the edges, so you can't see the white on the side of the paper. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Next adhered the branch and assembled my card.

Hi stampers!

Welcome to day 2 of A Muse sneak peeks! Today I am featuring the Bouquet Builder stamp set. This set if full of florals and leaves (and sentiments) and there is coordinating die set available too (goes live on Friday).  I stamped my images on Sugar card stock, colored with Copic markers and die cut them. Next I masked  the bottom right corner of my Sugar panel and sponged with the Blush pigment ink. Next I stamped the sentiment and arranged my flowers. To finish it off I added some pink twinkle stickers and adhered the panel on Blush note card. 

Come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks and visit the A Muse Blog and the rest of the DT blogs for more sneak peeks!

Hey Friend and the MISTI Sale continues


Hi Stampers,

I made this card as part of my SU! Display Stamper application and I am finally sharing it, as I finally edited the video. 

Note: There is MISTI sale in honor of My Sweet Petunia's 3rd Anniversary and the Original MISTI and all accessories for the Original MISTI are 20% off on the My Sweet Petunia's website. 

For my card I first die cut a circle that was able to fit my sentiment (from the stitched shapes framelits) and I cut it from a sticky note. Then used the frame to mask my Whisper white panel ( 4" x 5 1/4") and stamped the sentiments using my MISTI tool with Archival Black ink. Next I covered the sentiment with the other part of the sticky note (the circle) and stamped around it and the whole panel. This way you get dimensional look without the bulk. When I  was done I adhered my panel onto Bermuda Bay top folding note card ( 4 1/4" x 11" folded at 5 1/2" ) 

Watch the video below to see how this card came to be,

It's again that time of the month for A Muse studio sneak peeks. Today I am featuring the Southern Bouquet stamp set ( the release goes live on Friday).
