Hi everyone! Happy Friday!
You may have seen this week that Neat & Tangled and My Sweet Petunia have had a beautiful meeting of products to bring you an awesome collaboration! There’s been so much awesome inspiration on the Neat & Tangled blog, My Sweet Petunia blog and DT members’ blogs – quite mindblowing! Not to mention some AMAZING prizes – make sure you check out all the blogs for details!!
I couldn’t wait to use my MISTI and show you just a fraction of what you can do with it! I love my MISTI. You know the first few days after I got it I used to cuddle it? Yeah, maybe I’m crazy, but it’s totally justified. *wink*
In case you’ve lived under a crafting rock you must surely already know that MISTI is truly the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented! This wonderful tool, created by the amazing Iliana, is truly a stamper’s dream and will turn shaky hands, uneven or impartial stamping, and mistakes into things of the past! Techniques are a cinch with this baby, and you will find yourself having less fear of having a wasted project. And I won’t even start on how easy it makes it to mass produce your designs! Just ink, stamp, repeat for perfect placement and results every time!!
So, onto my card!
For my card today I went with a Star Wars theme, featuring A Long Time Ago and Time Warp:
So fun! I loved creating my background with nothing but mist and splatters using a few different kinds of mist! Usually when I play with this set I create a colourful Distress Paint background but today I wanted to go monochromatic. 🙂
See the white lines on the panel? I was able to overstamp the same stamp three times for a really saturated white – impossible to do by eye without the placement being off! Never a problem with MISTI!
I also use my MISTI to help plan the layout of a card. Here you can see how I positioned some stamps to get them straight and in the right place.
I changed my mind on which sentiments to use and was able to use the gridded lid to get my placement and layout perfect before stamping down!
The final card could easily be replicated again and again, with perfect results every time! All hail the MISTI – truly one of the best inventions our industry has ever seen!
I wanted to round out my post with a couple of MISTI-related photos from CHA:
Here’s Iliana with her trophy. She won a CHA Hot Product Award for her Mini and Mega MISTIs!
And here she is with all of the MISTI range!
Iliana is the humblest, sweetest and most generous person you could ever hope to meet. And her invention is truly incredible. So proud of her!
So there are lots of giveaways all this week! Check out the Neat & Tangled and My Sweet Petunia blogs for details of prizes, which include a MISTI and a $100 gift certificate to the Neat & Tangled store! AND some of the DT girls are also doing other giveaways on their blog – including me!
