Technique Tuesday / My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop

Beautiful6 

Welcome!  I am excited to participate in the collaboration blog hop between Technique Tuesday and My Sweet Petunia!  We are all sharing projects using these products.  Stay tuned as there are prizes up for grabs!

******Please excuse the wonky colors in my photo.  We are in the process of getting new flooring and my house is a MESS!  I've had to take photos in a different location for now BUT a new craft room comes SOON!!  Be sure to follow as I will be posting pictures of my before and after once it's all done!******


I used the Enjoy Flower Layered Stamp Set from Technique Tuesday because of it's layering possibilities.  The Misti Stamping Tool is perfect for a stamp set like this!  I have lots of photos to share so let's get started.

Beautiful1

I started off with a panel of cardstock and stamped the solid image in a bright yellow ink (all inks from Altenew unless specified).  Using my Misti, I added the shading layer with a darker color of the same shade of ink.  The Misti makes for perfect even stamping especially when you need to add more color as I did here with my shading layer.  One layer was too light so I was easily able to restamp to make darker using my Misti!

Next, I've added the centers with brown ink and then black dots for the centers.  These flower just come alive with the layers!

Now, this panel is really pretty the way it is but let's take it up another notch!  Using the OUTLINE stamp, stamp it using black ink (I used VersaFine Clair Nocturne) for a bold effect.  I show how here how the flowers each look before I filled in the rest of the panel.

Once the panel was all stamped, the panel was trimmed down and added to the same yellow color cardstock (Sunshine from MFT) which was then added to a top folding white notecard.  To finish, the sentiment (from Cherry Blossoms Stamp Set) was stamped onto a white strip and the 'Beautiful' diecut was added below.  The sentiment strip was hand trimmed into a banner end and adhered with foam adhesive.  Here is the finished card!
