Especially for you

I've had this cute image in my upcycling box for a while but haven't used it as I didn't want to make a mess of the card by stamping a wonky or incomplete sentiment.  So when Father Christmas gave me some money I decided to buy a MISTI - I now wonder how I managed without it!

I'm entering the Allsorts 'Something New' challenge (I've used my new MISTI), Paper Creator 'Anything Goes' challenge and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Upcycled birthday card
Stamp: Clearly Besotted sentiment (magazine freebie)
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Card: Brown matt
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the upcycled birthday card image so it was slightly smaller than my matt layer.  I popped it into my MISTI  and placed the sentiment nice and level at the side of the flower stem.  I stamped the sentiment twice to make the colour a little more intense so it matched the brown matt.  After stamping the sentiment I layered the the image onto the brown matt layer and attached it to the card front.  To finish I highlighted the flower with a Wink of Stella.

  9. This is really pretty Kath and I have a Misti so know what you mean about it making stamping sentiments so much easier. I have been busy making some upcycled Christmas cards while I still have the appropriate things out on the table as it will definitely help me to reach a good number seeing as I fell rather short this year. x

  14. Hi Kath, Lovely card. I deliberately put sentiments at an angle, as I can never get them straight.

    Hope you have a nice day. Sue

  15. Gorgeous CAS card Kath, perfectly stamped. I too have a Misti and can’t imagine being without it now. I’m amazed at how much stamping I now do compared to before. I have found it a real confidence booster.
