SugarPea Designs is hopping with My Sweet Petunia!

Hello and welcome to this special hop between SugarPea Designs and My Sweet Petunia (MISTI). I am so honored to be part of the SugarPea Design team AND I love MISTI and it really has changed  the way I stamp. It has made clear, crisp stamping so much easier and most important especially for me, that I don't have to waste my precious white cardstock :) I get it from US most of the time and shipping is a killer...lol


For today, I chose to create this gorgeous plaid pattern background using the Striped background stamp...WHY??? Cos MISTI makes it so easy...and I also created this layered stamping vase directly onto the die-cut as I had MISTI help.

First I aligned my stripe background stamp against the 45 degree angle from the new Creative Corners for MISTI. I then closed the door of the MISTI to adhere the stamp. 


I then stamped the background using orange ink. I wanted kind of a distressed look so, I stamped this just once. If you want a solid stamping, you can stamp over the same again. I moved my cardstock to fill in the whole layer.


I then turned the layer 90 degrees and stamped the background again using Orange ink. Once this was done, I used the yellow ink, offset the card layer a bit and stamped onto the white layer once again for additional color.


I then die-cut the image die and stamped the multi step image using MISTI. I could stamp using 2 shades of ink for the leaves and flowers, as with MISTI, I knew I could stamp in the same position any number of times.


Here is a close-up for you

You've shown me that I really COULD make my own background paper with a Misti. I've been hesitant to try making my own. Love the color of the flowers of your card and see how you can do this with the Misti. Great little tool! Thank you for showcasing these techniques
