My Sweet Petunia has invited dozens of your favorite bloggers to participate in MISTI May-nia – which is a daily giveaway of Mini MISTIs. Every single day in May! Today is my turn…


I have a brand of stamps called Palettini with Technique Junkies. Many of the images I design are fully collaged backgrounds. These can be ‘one and done’ with a single color stamping and then embellish as you like, or more complex stamping as available with a great tool like the MISTI.

Both of these cards were made with the MISTI.


The first card is a more ‘solid’ stamp design using my Le Tour Eiffel stamp and a Paris sentiment.


Solid stamping is more straight-forward than the floral background card, which has more open areas and a lot more detail. The second card is made with my Vintage Floral Collage background stamp. But the MISTI makes both styles easy to accomplish with precision and detail.  I made a video to show how the second card was made. Enjoy!

The last step I did was to pastel color in the images with Copic Markers to make them ‘glow’. I used YG11 / YG03 for the leaves, BV000 / BV00 for the purple flowers, RV000/ RV00 for the pink flowers and BV00 / BG01 for the butterfly.
