Misti Meets Impression Obsession Blog Hop

Happy Friday!


My Sweet Petunia has teamed up with Impression Obsession for a collaboration blog hop. This means you are in for a treat with beautiful inspiration from both design teams.  


Be sure to hop along with us and comment on each blog for a chance to win! We are giving away a Mini Misti and a $25 IO gift certificate. On Wednesday  October 12th we will draw from everyone who leaves a comment on ALL the blogs in the hop. The winners will be posted on the MSP & IO blogs as well as their FB pages. You can find the order of the hop at the bottom of this post.

I chose to make a Christmas card because Christmas is only 79 days away...Eeep!

  To make my card I started with an Old Olive top folding card base and a panel of watercolor paper. The stamp I chose for the hop is this beautiful Poinsettia Sketch, which is a Cover-a-Card stamp, this means it totally covers your card front for an A2 card like a background stamp.  Which also means the greeting I chose to go with this image, would not fit on the outside of my card, so it is on the inside. 
When I use watercolor paper I always use the MISTI because of the texture, I usually have to over stamp and that is exactly what the Misti is used for, precision stamping. The MISTI also makes it easy when using a background stamp, I hardly ever purchased background stamps before the MISTI because I could never get a good clean image the first time I stamped and then I could not line it back up to over stamp. I am so thankful for My Sweet Petunia inventing a tool that saved me lots of frustration and paper. 
I stamped the Poinsettia Sketch using the Original MISTI in versa fine black onyx ink and then used Zig pens to color the image. After it was dry I sponged a little distress ink around the outsides of the panel to give it more of a vintage feel.

  42. Oh my! I was waiting for the image of your card to load (HughesNet in the mountains is a bit slow, to say the least) and when it popped up, I gasped. My husband said, "What's the matter?" and I told him there was a beautiful card that just loaded. He didn't understand at all. Men! They just don't get how we card makers appreciate beautiful projects, LOL! I couldn't decide what to do first--just enjoy or sign up for a Zip coloring workshop. So I'm just going to say, TFS! Beautiful!

  76. The name of your blog Ceal says it all "Simply beautiful". Your rich coloured poinsettia and the background leaves and berries are stunning and look like fine art work. Thanks for sharing about the back ground stamps, I seldom used them either, so can relate to the frustration. I had never heard the term cover Cover-a-Card stamp before so that's clever. Thanks so much.
