Unity Stamp and Misti Hop {26 May 2017}


Hello Everyone!
I am so excited to participate in this Awesome Blog Hop showcasing Unity Stamps and My Sweet Petunia's Misti tool.

I hope you came from Maureen's blog, and if you didn't you might want to start from the beginning at My Sweet Petunia.
I'm sure you will be inspired by all the wonderful creations as you hop with us.
If you would like to connect with me, you can find me on Instagram (@karylim) or on Pinterest (Karylim).

I had a great time playing with Misti, and also the Misti Creative Corners.
Here's my first card:


On this card, I created the background piece with Misti Creative Corners and Copic Markers. The markers I used are B14, RV55 and Y13.  I love how easy it is to create a simple background.


 I used the cute stamp Life is Better by Phyllis Harris, stamping with Misti makes it so easy to get a perfect impression.


For my second card I used the Angie Girl - Missing You Girl stamp and coloured her with Copic Markers and fussy cut around the image.  The background piece is created with Distress Oxide inks. After inking the piece I sprayed a thin mist of water on it.  When it dried, I added another layer of Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz to give it a really sparkly effect. When everything is dry, I used the Misti to stamp the sentiment at the bottom right corner. I really love how easy it is to get my sentiment stamped perfectly and exactly where I want it to be.  I embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder and assembled the card.

Here is a close up.  It looks so pretty in real life.

My third card is basically a one layer card using Phyllis Harris' Always From the Heart stamp set.  I adore this image and the lovely sentiment.  I wanted the sentiment in a light blue ink so it goes with the rest of the image - I stamped it several times with the Misti.


Thank you so much for stopping by.

Your next stop is the lovely Kia Gibson-Clapper.

Here are all the links below in case you get lost or a link is broken.
Please remember to comment along the way and as a token of appreciation, there are wonderful prizes to be won along the way - 3 prize packs from Unity and winner's choice of an Original or Mini MISTI. How Awesome is that!!
