I used CC163 Cover-a-Card Watches & Keys, MC656 Thankful clear set DIE388-Thankful die along with my MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) for today’s project.

Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

Since this was a big background stamp I used tape on the corners of my card to keep it in place on my MISTI tool. I inked the stamp with brown ink and then added some blue ink with a blending tool before stamping.my background (CC163 Cover-a-Card Watches & Keys). I inked and stamped a couple times to get a nice blend in the colors.1 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I added a few swipes of white acrylic paint (with my finger) along the card. Set aside and let dry completely.5 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I created a panel by swiping the same brown and blue ink onto cardstock.3 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I die cut the DIE388-Thankful die with my Big Shot.4 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

To finish my card I stamped “for you” and then added the Thankful die cut.6 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

MISTI and Concord & 9th!

Please join the MISTI team for a hop with Concord & 9th!

One lucky person who comments on the hop will win a Mini MISTI!

 The prize will be randomly chosen from everyone who leaves a comment on every post. The winner will be announced on the My Sweet Petunia Facebook Page on Friday.

I used the Flourishes Stamp Set. What a fun set! Lots of flowers (and flower parts) to mix and match. So much fun. The Concord & 9th April release can be found here. They are also doing a special where if you spend $60 you get a super cute stamp set! Check it out!

Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

First I used my Mini MISTI to stamps the leaves. 1 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

Then I added some blue flowers (Soft Sky & Bermuda Bay). It’s pretty just like this…but I wasn’t finished playing just yet.2 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

I went to town with the wee little dot stamps (they work great as a little accent for the flowers or a flower center). Then I wet all the little flowers and let the ink (Rich Razzleberry) bleed a bit. Then I did a wash background using the same ink as the lighter part of the flower (Soft Sky). After everything was dry I painted some circles onto the background with white acrylic ink. I also edged the flowers with a marker to define them a bit. 3 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped the sentiments on a strip of white cardstock and then cut to size. 4 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

I added some pearls and doodled my card edge with a fine black pen.  I added a few accents with a white gel pen.5 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff
