Why I am thankful for my MISTI

Perfect placement of sentiments every single time.
No more hunting for the correct sized block.
The ability to restamp in exactly the same place to get a nice solid image,
Chickens like the MISTI too.
Ginger Jeanne_Streiff

Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I watercolored a splashy image (see colors below). After it was completely dry I stamped my sentiment with black ink. 1 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I inked up my leaf stamps in orange (Spiced Marmalade) and then tapped in a bit of deep red Aged Mahogany) ink randomly before stamping. Because it was on watercolor I needed to stamp more than once to get a nice solid image. I kept going stamping leaves until I had framed the sentiment.2 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I finished my card by adding some gold metallic tape from Hobby Tape under the sentiment words and adhering the panel to a kraft card base.

  1. Love love love the beautiful fall card. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  2. Beautiful card !!! I love it Happy Thanksgiving

  3. I love this card! The colors are truly eye catching and it makes a statement! Thanks for the detailed instructions and the photos along the way. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Well, I have to say you sure know how to catch my attention with your staging Jeanne! Too cute. I have a picture of CC sitting on my laptop just staring at Curly Fry and Bubble Gum … it is comical. Now on to your card … I love love the background splash which is fabulous with the leaves and that awesome sentiment. I need one of those, I don’t have anything in the Grateful or Thankful for you …

  5. OOOOO! Pretty background. Thanks for sharing

  6. beautiful card! I am also thankful for my MISTI!

  7. Jeanne, how cute is that chicken by your MISTI. The stamping of the word “Thankful” is so dark that it looks like a die cut out of black paper. I do not own a MISTI and can just imagine how it would change my stamping world. I currently avoid stamping and rely on the dies on my cards to do the work.
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful card with those gorgeous leaves.

  8. Beautiful card! The chicken is really cute! So fluffy!

  9. I love your card – and your chicken! I really like the sharp intense black you were able to achieve for the sentiment against that background. I have trouble doing that sometimes; I’m sure the MISTI would help, as you could re-stamp again and again as needed.

  10. Ooooolala, that is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece!

  11. Love the card and the chicken! Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. Gorgeous card!

  13. Oh I love this card! I love the colors…the combination of techniques…the simplicity! Thank you for sharing and inspiring. I would love to win a misti for me and for a dear friend…fingers crossed.

  14. Beautiful solid colored leaves! MISTI is fabulous for framing :). I am thankful I found this hobby 20+ years ago!

  15. Beautiful card!!! Love the way you colored the leaves.

  16. Your card is really gorgeous Jeanne.
    I am Thankful that my Mom loves crafting. Since my father has been ill she hasn’t been able to craft or make cards. He passed away 3 weeks ago and she is (of course), still grieving right now but I would like to see her get back into it as she enjoyed it so much and with winter coming she will be home alone a lot. The gift of a MISTI would certainly encourage that.

  17. Beautiful cards! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

  18. Your card is beautiful – great Fall colors. Also a nice idea with the water coloring.

  19. What a beautiful card. Love the watercolor splash in the middle. Well done. I am thankful for the MISTI because it not only helped me be a better stamper but it enabled my Art class students to stamp their own sentiments for their Mother’s Day cards that we make in class. I am hoping to acquire more of them so my students won’t have to wait so long in line to use it.

  20. Oh wow, your card is fantastic! Thanks for the inspiration.

  21. Wow! I love the colors! This is such a dynamic card.

  22. Lovely. I’m extra thankful for my friend Laura who’s an antique along side of me from way back!! Love her to pieces. I don’t own a misti (on wish list) but I’d love us to win and share these.

  23. Your card is a beautiful reminder that it is still fall. I love that you shared the photo with your chicken also, so cute.

  24. I don’t know which one I like more, your beautiful card or the adorable chicken (I have always wanted to raise chickens). Your card is very creative and the colors are beautiful. I am thankful for all of the fabulous people in my life.
