SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #32

Hey stamping friends 🙂 This week it’s my turn to share some fresh inspiration using Mix It Up Challenge #32 at SugarPea Designs:

My favorite part of this challenge is that you can use either the sketch, or the inspiration photo, or both! This week I opted for the sketch because I knew I was going to use one of my most favorite sets from the new release called Pucker Up, no matter what the challenge was! Lol. Can you get over the cuteness of this set? And how about those clever sentiments?!:

I also used paper from the Sugar & Spice Patterned Paper Collection & Happy Holidays Patterned Paper Collection, as well as the Pucker UpZig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts.  

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll make some time to join us…and don’t forget there’s a prize up for grabs! Check out the details on the SugarPea Designs blog!

SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop

Hi stamping friends 🙂 The Spring Release at SugarPea Designs was last month, and now that you’ve had a chance to order what you love the design team has come up with some fresh inspiration for you!

I couldn’t resist using this little cutie from the This Little Piggy set. I made a fun background using distress ink, colored him in with Copics, and I don’t know if you can tell from the photo, but his hula hoop is sparkly.

Here’s how I used the amazing MISTI to create my card:

  • Cut a piece of card stock measuring 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, and place it on the grid lines of paper that comes with the Misti as shown.
  • Place one of the magnetized Creative Corners on the card stock, making sure that it is lined up with one of the grid intersections. This will allow us to stamp our first image off the edge of the card stock.

  • Next close the door of the Misti, which will adhere the stamp to the inside of the opposite side, ink it up, and close it again to stamp the image.
  • Once the image has been stamped, remove the magnetized Creative Corners piece and replace it with a longer, non-magnetized Creative Corners piece to continue stamping more words. Be sure to line up the Creative Corners piece with the same grid intersection. It has the same angle, so it will line up perfectly.

  • Place the next word to be stamped and carefully remove the angle so that the door of the Misti can be shut.

  • Continue to line up the stamps using the angles and stamp until the entire piece of card stock has been stamped.

  • Another fun trick that the Misti is great for is lining up your stamps inside die cut shapes! Simply die cut the shapes as usual, then place the cut piece inside the Misti.

  • Next, line up the stamps inside the die cut spaces. You could add the die cut card stock before this step, but I find it easier to line up the stamps with the black background.

  • Add the die cut shapes after shutting the Misti door to secure the stamps to the opposite side for inking:
