MISTI May-nia - Win a Mini MISTI!!

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday - and welcome to MISTI May-nia!!

I'm so thrilled and delighted to be a special guest for the MISTI May-nia event!! In case you haven't heard, My Sweet Petunia are giving away a free Mini MISTI every day this month - sometimes with more than one chance to win too! Make sure you check out this amazing event over on the My Sweet Petunia blog for more details!

I absolutely love my MISTIs! That's right - I'm blessed enough to have several! They come in so handy for mass production, but where I find them most useful for me is in techniques and especially in overstamping. And ever since the Mini MISTI has been released I've found it hard not to use it for every single card I make! Seriously worth every penny!!

So for my card I used my MISTI to work out perfect stamp placement of several stamps and then stamp them all at once. Here's what I came up with:


Awesome, right?! I could not be more thrilled with how it turned out!!


I stated with a panel of white cardstock and lined up my moon die on the panel. I used a Picket Fence Distress Crayon to draw/trace the moon in, then removed the die and inked the panel completely with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, then overinked that with Black Soot Distress ink. Thanks to the crayon resisting the inks I was able to keep my moon having that ghostly look!


I splattered on some water droplets and mists for that starry night look.


I lined up all my stamps on my panel, then used the MISTI lid to pick them up in one go for stamping. So easy! I heat embossed the centre sentiments with white embossing powder, and enjoyed adding the beginning of the sentiment with black ink for some contrast. So thrilled with how this turned out!!
