Gina K Designs & My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome to the Gina K Designs and My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop! The MISTI is seriously the most amazing stamp positioning tool. I got my first one about a year ago and it seriously changed my life. I was, and still am, one of those stampers who could never stamp an image right the first time. Being able to re-ink and stamp again has changed my card making life and I've gone from not liking to stamp to loving to stamp all because of the MISTI!

Card Design and Layering Stamp Images with the MISTI


With that being said, the MISTI is such a great tool and it gives you the flexibility and freedom to create some many wonderful designs with ease.  One of my favorite things to do with the MISTI is use it to lay out my card design and determine how I want to layer the stamped images. I did just that when I created the card I'm sharing with you today.  

To create this card, I started by using the MISTI to lay out the design for my card using stamps from the Boho Flowers Stamp Set. This set was part of the recent BoHo Flowers Mini Kit by Gina K Designs.

I knew I wanted to layer the flower images and the large "you" on top of the leaves and swirls, so I used the die cuts from the flowers and the "you" to help me determine the placement of the leaves and swirls.

At this point, I wasn't sure what colors I was using for the flowers, etc. so I die cut some scrap paper using the flower dies. I played around with the placement of the flower dies and the leaves, swirls and sentiment stamps until I liked their placement on the card front.

Once I was happy with the placement, I removed the die cuts and closed the lid to pick up the stamps.

Next, I inked them up with Jelly Bean Green Ink by Gina K Designs. I just love that you can ink and stamp multiple stamps all at the same time.

As you might have noticed, part of the sentiment stamp was on their as well. After I had inked and stamped the leaves, I then added black ink to that stamp and stamped it.

After all of this was stamped, I then used the MISTI to stamp the flowers. I double stamped all of the images to get a nice dark color with the ink. After die cutting the flowers, I then adhered them to the card. I used some double sided foam tape to pop up the largest flower. For a bit of dimension and detail, I added enamel dots to the flower centers and then colored in the dots on the flower and swirl images using Sakura Glaze Pens.

I hope you enjoyed learning how I used the MISTI to create this card!
