Impression Obsession Blog Hopping with My Sweet Petunia!



It's a BLOG HOP! My Sweet Petunia (makers of the MISTI stamp positioner) and Impression Obsession Design Teams are sharing a little inspiration for you today!  The two design teams have created projects that show the advantages of using a very precise stamp positioner with your rubber or clear stamps. 

Be sure to visit each of the blogs participating in the hop and leave comments on each blog as you go so that you will be entered for a chance at the prizes!  On Wednesday, October 12th,  two winners will be drawn from everyone who leaves a comment on ALL the blogs in the hop to win a prize.  One person will win a mini MISTI and another will win a $25 IO gift certificate. Winners will be posted on the My Sweet Petunia and Impression Obsession blogs as well as their Facebook pages.  Good Luck!

Blog Hop Stops:
Jenny Gropp - you are here!

What's worse than a spider... icky creepy crawly!!! This new Spider Die almost looks a little TOO REAL for my liking! I knew the Cover a Card Spider Web background would be the perfect backdrop for these little monsters. Anytime I use a background stamp, my MISTI is my go to tool! No more ruined paper or partially stamped areas! 

Supplies from Impression Obsession for todays' card:


I inked up the spider web cover a card background using LF's white pigment ink and then heat embossed using detail clear powder. It gave it a shiny finish but it wasn't bright white. Just the look I was going for... looks like little creepy spider webs glistening in the moonlight. ICK. I LOVE using MISTI for my big backgrounds! It allows me to get perfect coverage every time!

I'm the last stop on the hop today, so I think you've been educated about how MISTI works by now. But if not, hop right over here to some fantastic videos that show you just how MISTI will change your stamping!

Have an awesome weekend and thanks for hopping along with us!

  6. I love how you achieved so much dimension on this card.....from embossing the spider web stamp, to the jointed legs on the spiders and finally with the layering of your letters in the word. Amazing card. You are so talented. After seeing these new spiders, I know I have to get them. And I do not own a MISTI but it is on my wish list of things to buy. Thank you for sharing your inspirational card.

  56. I can't stand spiders, So I would never make this card :) but the background I do like.. Spider webs don't really need spiders in them - do they :). I can see how the Misti would be the go to tool for backgrounds.. I have ruined more cards with partial stamping of large background stamps.. what a great too to get!
    thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Those spiders are way too real looking! Great card though. Though I wouldn't want to open it in the mail, I would drop it and run.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Love how you used dark papers, inking the spider webs in white. I didn't realize that the users of MISTI use their big ol' background stamps on it. It appears that the stamp fits the MISTI beautifully and stamps better. Sensational sentiment, and it's placement is even a bit creepy feeling.
