Stamping Instead of Coloring

Just stopping in this week with a couple of creations I made a few weeks ago.

In my crafting, I tend to rely on die cuts and colored images when making my cards.  But I purchased a MISTI a month or so ago, which has encouraged me to do more stamping, rather than only using sentiments with die cuts and colored images.  I have to say, I absolutely LOVE the MISTI.  It is so easy to stamp in the exact spot where I want it.  I am much more likely to pull out layering stamps now, rather than passing them by because they are too difficult for me to align by eye or with the Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Anyway.  I recently pulled out my PTI Embellished Elegance stamp set to play around with the images in it.  I only used the MISTI for the vines, which didn’t turn out very much aligned, funny enough!  Then I stamped some of the smaller images, trying to cover up the misalignment.  Here is how it all turned out:

  1. What a sweet card Ally, love all of the tiny blooms! I haven’t tried the Lemon Tart Cardstock, I like it here. It looks like a soft buttery yellow. YAY for the Misti, it sure makes things easier!

    Ally, I told myself I didn’t need another tool in my craft space until I saw this card! Thanks, I think! Lol
