With Love

Hi all!  Today I have a card for the Uniko Studio challenge – Love and Friendship:


The sentiment is from Flower Power #3 and the heart dies are from Little B.  I’ve made a quick video today showing a tip on stamping on odd-shaped die cuts with the MISTI:

Hi all!  Today I have a mixed media tag for you:

I cut 2 pieces of cardstock and covered them with sheets from an old book.   One was cut into a tag shape, and on the other I stamped the doll and wings.  I colored them with Inktense pencils, added some Stickles to the wings, and fussy cut them out.  I cut out the same tag shape from some cloud transparency I had in my stash and tied it to the book sheet tag with a twill bow and some baker’s twine.

For the sentiment, I printed it on plain paper with my laser printer and covered it with clear packing tape.  Then I soaked it in water and rubbed the paper off the back of the tape.  That leaves just the toner sentiment on the back of the tape and it stuck right to the transparency.

This is for SSS Monday Challenge – Up in the Clouds.  I hope you like it and TFL!

Sending Big Hugs

Hi all!  Today I have a card made using the MFT Sketch:


I used the PI Sending Big Hugs stamp set and the matching die.  She was stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copics and her dress was paper pieced.  The sentiment is also from the stamp set.

This is also for Crafty Creations – Something Old, Something New (the paper is really old from my stash and the stamp set and die are new to me).  I hope you like it and TFL!

Repetitive Stamping with the MISTI

Hi all!  Yesterday on her blog, Jennifer McGuire put up a post about repeated stamping of an image in a circle.  I immediately thought that I could replicate that look by using the MISTI, and without having to measure.  Here’s what I came up with:


I used the Lovestruck stamp set from Your Next Stamp and a rainbow of Memento Dew Drop inkpads.  And here’s my video showing the technique:

I hope you like it and TFL!

P.S. This is also for SSS Wednesday Challenge – Have a Heart.

Hoppy Valentine’s Day!

feature day january 22

Hi all!  Today is Your Next Stamp’s Feature Day.  We’re all featuring Love themed projects.  I have a gift card pocket using the Small Tear Away Tab die:


I also used the Love & Smiles stamp set and the matching die set.  Here’s what it looks like after the tab is pulled and the gift card is pulled out a little.


And I made a video of the process as well:

Happy Birthday

Hi all!  Today’s card used the MISTI to help stamp it.  Can you guess how?


The birthday sentiment is not a large circle stamp.  It’s just the little word birthday that I stamped 8 times using the MISTI for perfect positioning and repetition.  To get the perfect spacing, I used an octagon diecut behind the circle.  Here’s a video explaining how I did it:

I hope you like it and TFL!

Heartfelt Thanks

Hi all!  I have a card for a couple challenges today:


I used the Everyday Classics set from Papertrey Ink and followed the Make It Monday instructions for pieces behind the heart.  I cut out a 3x4 journaling card and cut out a Spellbinders heart from it.  I stamped a sentiment near the bottom, then adhered the pie chart piece to the back of the card and cut the excess off.  I embossed a blue cardstock piece with a Stampin’ Up! dot folder and put the whole card together.

This is for Crafty Creations – Blues and also Daring Cardmakers – January Blues.  I hope you like it and TFL!
