Gina K. Designs and My Sweet Petunia Combo Blog Hop


Happy Tuesday!


Welcome to the Gina K. Designs and My Sweet Petunia blog hop.
You probably arrived here from the super talented Ceal Pritchett's blog.

Before I show you how I put my card design together, let me tell you a little about the hop.  The design teams from Gina K. Designs and My Sweet Petunia have joined forces to show you some fun projects using both companies' products.  Gina K. has beautiful stamps, dies, inks and papers which go perfectly with the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented - the MISTI.  Both Gina K. and Iliana Myska have helped to shape the stamping world and we couldn't be happier about that!

Here are some of the ways the MISTI helped me as I made today's card:


I first laid out the stamps I wanted to use and then repeat stamped them three times to get a perfect black image on each.  I used Versafine Onyx Black so that I could heat emboss the stamped images with Gina K. Designs Clear Embossing Powder.

 

I left a space in the upper left hand corner of my images to add in my swirl stamp.  I wanted to stamp it in rainbow colors which was easy with the MISTI.  I inked up the stamp six different times to achieve the rainbow look.  I could have NEVER done that with a stamp block!  Next because I hadn't moved my stamp or paper, I was able to stamp over the image with Versamark and then heat emboss it like the other images.  Then I die cut all my bits and pieces.


Next I had to figure out the approximate layout for everything.  Be glad this wasn't a video, or you might still be watching this step!  I adhered my stamped and die cut YOU and swirl so that I could add in the supporting sentiment.  I stamped it onto a clear grid to make double sure it would be straight.  Then I removed the clear grid and stamped it for real.

The rest is history!!

I absolutely adore my MISTI.  I can't even lie...I have four of them.  Now that's true LOVE!  And what images did I use on my card today?  I used the Boho Flowers Mini Kit from Gina K.  Take a look because I think you will like it.
You will want to hop along to Donna's blog from here.  She is one of my VERY talented teammates and I am proud to link to her next.  Be sure to comment on all the blog posts in order to have a chance to win two separate prizes.  What are they?  (1) Your choice of the regular MISTI or the Mini MISTI and (2) the not yet released Stitched Leaves Mini Kit from Gina K. Designs.

The deadline for commenting is September 5th at noon central. Winners will be posted on the My Sweet Petunia blog winners' page and on the Gina K. Designs blog no later than Friday, September 8th, 2017.
