Neat And Tangled and My Sweet Petunia Collaboration – And a Giveaway!!

By Taheerah | 5th February 2016 | 41 Comments

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!

The Mini MISTI is so cute – a perfect size for cardmakers! I’ve pre-ordered mine, have you?!

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!

Giveaway!!


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!

To be in with the chance of winning the A Long Time Ago stamp set simply leave me a comment on this post! We’ll pick a random winner who’ll get this awesome set!

Thanks for stopping by – and good luck!!

  1. I love your card! I also love my MISTI, but hadn't thought of being able to repeat stamp with white ink on a dark background – what a great technique / tip – thank you!

  2. This is just awesome, Taheerah!! I love your card as it is so eye-catching and inspiring! Love the bold combo of white & black – the MISTI really makes the white pop even more. I can't wait for my mini MISTI to arrive next month!

  3. WOW – WONDERFUL card Taheerah!!!
    LOVE your COOL & COSMIC design with such BOLD white stamping … I really struggle when using white and confess that my gel pen usually has to help save the day => ANOTHER reason to NEED a MISTI 🙂
    THANK YOU for sharing your INKY INSPIRATION and update about this MUST-HAVE tool!!!

  4. I would never give up my MISTI! The mini MISTI sounds so cool! Your card is gorgeous! Love the Star Wars theme and the fun sentiment – I would love to make a card for hubby with this stamp set! Your galaxy looks amazing! Have a great weekend!

  5. I'm just imagining you wandering around cuddling and smiling at your MISTI, from what I hear about it I don't blame you!!! Definitely on top of my wishlist but the price and postage to NZ on top puts it out of my price range. So please give your MISTI a cuddle from me!! Your card is totally out of this world and it has so much dimension and interest. Really enjoyed seeing all the posts this week with the MISTI involved, certainly shows me I need to start saving!!!

  6. I really love your card Taheerah, it really looks like you are looking way off into space. A great job.
    Neat & Tangled has some amazing stamps I still want and they are coming out with great ones faster than I can catch up!!!! Keep them coming though, I'll try my best to keep up…

    I am thrilled for Iliana and for her success. Wishing her all the best with her new MISTI's!

  7. Cuddling your MISTI: how cute I'd love to see a photo of you giving your MISTI a warm embrace! Your Star Wars-themed card: yep, another bout of brilliant! A gorgeous galaxy, perfect for that 'we need to catch up' sentiment. What a sweetheart you are for sharing photos of Iliana receiving her well-deserved awards; she really has turning this 'sport' upside down with her inventiveness. Mini-MISTI on my wish list; it would be ideal for my teensy-weensy crafting space!
    Hugs~c
