My Favorite Things - Funky Flowers + Quick Stamping With The MISTI

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a surprisingly easy card with you all! For real, easy. It's a little time consuming, but easy.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

Before I get started, I wanted to say that even though I used the MISTI Stamping Tool for this, you DON'T have to. It helps a bunch and certainly speeds up the process, but you can totally do this without it. Think: lots to color, not lots of work.


Okey dokey. The first thing I did was make mask of all of the images in the My Favorite Things Funky Flowers Stamp Set with Post-It Tape. I use the 2" wide tape, because of things like this. I've found this is the best tape for masking if you need to reposition them a lot. Plus it's pretty wide so it can accommodate lots of different sized stamps.

Next, I stamped my first flower in some Neenah White Cardstock with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. Again, I used the MISTI Stamping Tool  The MISTI is a rockstar for making sure you get a clear, crisp image, buuuut this card is the best example for why I love it so much.

Once, I had my first flower stamped, I masked it off and then started placing my images around it. Since I was using the MISTI, I could stamp more than one image at a time. This folks, is why I love it. It goes super fast. You just need to remember that the image you want "on top" gets stamped first (or second, or third). Capeesh?


After I had all of my images stamped, I colored everything in with Copic's. My color choices are in the thumbnails links below. This would also be fab done in watercolor by the way!

I gotta be honest. I had a really, really hard time deciding what colors I wanted to do these in. The flowers are soo fantastic and I really wanted them to pop. What I ended up doing was deciding what greens I wanted for the leaves first. Leaves are (usually) green so that's easy peasy. Then, I got out my very old, but handy dandy color wheel and starting with yellow-green as my main color, used colors that worked with that.

You definitely don't need a color wheel folks, but they can be nice to have. I'd like to note however, I've linked to the color wheel that I use, but ONLY for reference. I don't remember how much I paid for mine. It was like 14 years ago when I got it, but I certainly didn't pay that much for it. I feel like $2 was a thing....If you really want it and you really want to pay $6 for it go for it, otherwise I suggest you do some looking around for one that's less expensive.


When I had everything colored in I trimmed down the panel, then I added a unicorn level dose of Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear to the highlights of the images and added some Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen to the flowers as well.

I stamped a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp using more My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and trimmed that down to a strip. I also used a very thin strip of My Favorite Things Brushed Gold Cardstock.

You could totally skip the embellies because this card has oodles of sparkle already, but I decided to add a couple of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins because they were sitting right in front of me and sometimes I don't know when to quit.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me and as always I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

Concord & 9th - Hello Lovely

Hey folks!

It's been soo long since I've been able to share a card with you all and I'm so happy to be back! Now I know folks are busy sharing their Christmas creations and I may have one or two before Christmas, but I gotta be honest peeps, I'm just happy to be coloring again.

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
