Birthday Buddies Blog Hop for Laura


 It is my sweet crafting friend Laura's Birthday.
So in her honor a few of us that get together regularly to craft and laugh have a little hop for Laura. 
Happy Birthday Sweet Laura, your smile is contagious. Hugs. 

I made a colorful card for Laura, a non-traditional bday card. 
I used my MISTI to stamp my rainbow using SugarPea Designs' Watercolor Brush Strokes.  I cut down my panel using only part of the stamped images.  Then stamped my sentiment from Teacher's Pet and heat embossed and adhered to my rainbow panel and popped up on my kraft background.  I then finished with Clear Mix Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Supplies
Stamps: Watercolor Brush Strokes, Teacher's Pet (SugarPea Designs)  Paper: Recollections White, Black 110# (Michaels), Classic Kraft (Papertrey Ink) Ink: VersaMark, LadyBug, Dandelion, Pear Tart (Memento), Pink Flamingo, Pumpkin Orange, Sunflower Yellow, Garden Green,  Ocean Mist, Lovely Lilac (Your Next Stamp) Accessories: Clear Mix Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), Anti-Static Embossing Pouch, Heat Tool, White Embossing Powder, Glossy Accents (Inkessentials), Corner Chomper

So now just head on over to Kate's blog

Your Next Stamp April Feature Day - Little Ones

It's Feature Day at Your Next Stamp
This month's theme is - Little Ones
For the theme I used little images.
I started by die-cutting my white panel using Stitched Rectangle Die Set.  Then I used my MISTI to stamp my panel using Funny Faces 2.  I arranged all the glasses on my MISTI grouping them together and stamped using YNS inks overlapping the inks then huffing to activate them and stamped. I love the blended look I got.  I used the YNS Premium Dye Ink Pads Pink Flamingo, Pumpkin Orange, Sunflower Yellow, Garden Green, Ocean Mist and Lovely Lilac to stamp my glasses with. Then I arranged the smile faces a group at a time and stamped using Premium Dye Ink Pad Black Olive.  I finished off by cutting out another Stitched Rectangle but only used a strip of it to stamp my sentiment from Let's Do Tangle and heat emboss it.  Then I used White Sugar and Sparkle Gumdrops

SugarPea Designs is hopping with My Sweet Petunia!

Welcome, SugarPea Designs and My Sweet Petunia 
are joining together today for a Blog Hop and Giveaway! Whoot Whoot!
I have a tutorial below on how I used my Mini MISTI, MISTI Creative Corners and SugarPea Designs goodies to make my card.  
Also I have giveaway info below! Ummm Hmmm!

 You can see here the size difference between the Original MISTI and the Mini MISTI.
 Here is how I store the MISTI Creative Corners in my Original MISTI
 Here are the MISTI Creative Corners I use in my Mini MISTI
perfect for travel, crafting with my friends or crops where space is limited. 
 I am using the Mini MISTI today in this tutorial along with the MISTI Creative Corners
(These tools are magnificent and I highly recommend them for quality stamping and ease.)
I am using a small piece of white cardstock in my Mini MISTI.  I arranged the right angle magnets in the MISTI Creative  Corners to hold my panel securely while stamping.  I am using the Watercolor Brush Strokes set from SugarPea Designs.  It is a silhouette image and needs a strong hold around it so my paper doesn't pop up when I lift the stamp up.  That is what I LOVE about these right angle magnets. 
 I wanted to show you how the MISTI has revolutionized stamping.
So, I have stamped my silhouette image once.  Which, before the MISTI, this is what my silhouette stamping looked like, and I stayed away from silhouette images because I could not get a good solid looking image. 
 Thanks to the MISTI I can stamp again for a more solid image and vivid color.
 And again...you get the idea. But what a difference. WOW. 
 As I move along my panel, I move the magnets as I need.
 Here is my finished panel. 
What a beautiful rainbow of color. Be still my color loving heart. 

Now, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from Teacher's Pet.
Here is how I used the magnets to hold it in place!
And the finished product!

I used a grey card base keeping with the color scheme.  Then I die cut my white panel using the Stitched Rectangle Die Set.  Then I used my MISTI to stamp my image and sentiments from the super cute set Happy Meal.  I finished it off with White Sugar And Sparkle Gumdrops.  I love YNS Gumdrops.
