My Sweet Petunia and Gina K Designs Collaboration Blog Hop





Hi everyone! Today the awesome and talented Design Team members from My Sweet Petunia and Gina K. Designs have teamed up to bring you some new techniques and inspiration via a collaborative Blog Hop!  We have all created some fun new projects using our MISTIs from My Sweet Petunia and the Boho Flowers Mini Kit from Gina K Designs.




Hopefully you have reached my blog via Beth Silaika's blog, but however you may have landed here, I'm glad you did!  I have included the entire list of hop participants at the bottom of this post just in case you've gotten off track or would like to start from the beginning. We have a wonderful blog hop for you.  And I hope you will visit all the talented bloggers on the hop and leave them a comment.  Commenting on each of the blogs puts you in the drawing for two amazing prizes.  Two lucky winners, drawn from the pool of entrants who have commented on all the blogs, will win BOTH their choice of a Mini or Original MISTI, and the not-yet-released Gina K Designs Stitched Leaves Mini Kit (kit will be released 8/31/17).  The deadline for commenting is September 5th at noon central time.  The winners will be posted on the My Sweet Petunia blog winners page and on the Gina K. blog no later than Friday, September 8th.

Today I have two simple but elegant black and white cards to share with you.



This card was created by stamping the leafy flourish images on vellum using my MISTI and heat embossing them with white embossing powder.  I used white embossing powder to add the "you" to by Onyx Black card base then I adhered the vellum die cuts using spray adhesive.  The small sentiment was stamped using my MISTI using with the Creative Corners and the MISTI grid pad.  I also use this technique in the next card and it is explained in the video linked below.  I used some 3M foam tape to add some height and dimension to that strip.




For this second card, I paired the frame from Gina's Holiday Frame stamp set with the leafy flourish images from the Boho Flowers kit.  I first stamped the frame with my MISTI, then used a circle mask cut using one of the single stitched circle dies, and used a sheet of the MISTI grid paper to make masking the edges with 3M Post-It tape quick and easy.  

Once I had masked off the areas I wanted to keep white and trimmed the edges, I used the Creative Corners to help align the two flourish images and stamped them in the side portion, then simply flipped my panel and stamped again on the other side!

This video reveals my whole masking and stamping process, including stamping on my die cut as well as a tip for stamping on skinny sentiment strips:





Thanks for joining our blog hop today!  Your next stop in the hop will be at the lovely Karen Hightower's blog!  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop to be entered in the giveaway!  





Have a fabulous day!
