Super excited to be joining in today on the Technique Tuesday and My Sweet Petunia blog hop.
It’s the perfect combination. Technique Tuesday’s stamps and dies + My Sweet Petunia’s awesome MISTI tools (and other accessories).
My blog is the first stop on the hop. Here’s the whole line-up:
I’m excited to share with you a card I created for the hop. I wanted to make a birthday card because… birthday cards are something I’m always needing.
The Mini Misti tool was perfect for making this card because I wanted to give Sammy the Squirrel a birthday hat. I stamped the hat (from the Sassy Birthday 2.0 set) once on a sticky note, fussy cut it out with scissors. I stamped the hat a second time on a piece of cardstock.
A little tip for all you, Misti lovers, out there. I use a Mini Misti most of the time. (In fact, I actually take this positioner with me when I hit the road and travel to craft with friends. It’s the perfect size!) I cut several pieces of cardstock to fit in the Mini Misti ahead to fit inside it. That way I can grab and go on a stamping binge without any cares or worries. 😉
Anyway, back to the card. This is where the Mini Misti came in as super helpful. I covered up the cardstock stamped hat with the mask. And then I stamped Sammy over it.
I removed the mask and ended up with Sammy in a birthday hat!
Then I went to town putting together the rest of the card. I completed the scene with the cupcake (also from Sassy Birthday 2.0) and the worm (also from the Sammy the Squirrel set).
I colored the images in with markers. Cut them out with a circle die. Added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. Add a pompom to the hat (inspired by Jenn Brown, one of TT’s ambassadors, who does that quite often).
Then I completed the card with some patterned paper and a stamped sentiment. And yep. That’s it.
Alright! That’s all I have for you! Happy hopping! (Don’t forget, Ilina is your next stop! Take it away, Ilina! I promise that you are going to LOVE what she is sharing. She has such talent)
