MISTI & Pinkfresh Blog Hop

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m excited to be part of the MISTI & Pinkfresh Blog Hop. I have two cards to share today plus a MISTI tip.

I created two background panels using blue and purple alcohol inks. After they were completely dry, I die-cut THIS die from both of them. I also cut several from white card stock.

For the first card…

I used the negative pieces to create a background. I adhered one panel vertically and one horizontally to create a grid pattern…

I finished up the design with THESE flowers (more on that later in this post) and a white heat embossed sentiment.

For the second card…

I weaved the strips from the die-cutting in and out of the vertical lines of the die. After I weaved them, I adhered the piece to another white piece to sandwich the strips in place. I love the look of weaving…

I finished the design using THIS die to create a spot for THIS sentiment.

MEMORY MISTI TIP

Before I go, I wanted to share more about the Memory Misti. Not only is it great if you are doing larger projects like scrapbooking, it’s also great for mass producing cards. I used it to create several backgrounds at once…

With the layering flower stamp I used, I was able to create stations that I can rotate the paper to add color to the flowers quickly. Since THIS MISTI is so large I was able to add several more stamps to the door. You can definitely mass produce with the smaller MISTI, but I wanted to demonstrate how the larger one makes it even easier. I used THESE corners to keep the panel in place where there isn’t a square corner like the other side. Worked great and I need to get another pair for the other side…

P.S. I only set up three cards for what I needed, but I laid the finished card in a fourth spot to show you the possibilities.

Thought you just staggered a media at first… I dont do media so this weave die really intrigues me! The modern flower with that blue grid is super fun and cheery!

    Love the idea of mass producing cards. Even though I have the original Misti, it also lets me rotate and stamp small images for quick, easy multiples of design elements. Love the colors in your cards.

    The colors here are so stunning. Love both and I especially love the woven one. Great tips on the Misti. So far I only have the Mini Misti but am sure considering the larger one! Nicely done.

    Love everything about these cards!
    The basketweave look really makes the second card stand out.
    Very creative!
