Concord & 9th and MISTI Blog Hop!

C9 MSP Blog Hop-01

The My Sweet Petunia team is sharing SNEAK PEEKs of some BRAND NEW  PRODUCTS from Concord & 9th that  will be available  on Sun, 4/9 @ 9am MST. So much fun!

Concord & 9th will be doing a giveaway of the full Concord & 9th release ($129.50 value) + an Original MISTI. To be eligible, the person needs to comment on each persons hop along the way (including C9’s). Winner will be selected by Concord & 9th on 4/10 and notified.
New products available 4/9/17 are:
Many Mandalas BUNDLE (sold together at a discounted price)
Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

I created my background using the Triangle Turnabout stamp. It’s so cool! You position your stamp on the MISTI and stamp your first color, then rotate your paper to add another color (up to 4 times). Or you can skip a step and leave more open areas. I stamped mine with 4 colors.

1st color1 Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

2nd color2 Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

3rd color3 Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

4th color4 Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

I created a splashy watercolor panel (let dry) and stamped my first stamp from the Many Mandalas stamp set. This stamp set comes with a positioning sheet to help you line up all the layers.5 Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

I added another layer.6 Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

Then I added the sentiment (also from the Many Mandalas stamp set). 7 Congrats Jeanne_Streiff

MISTI May-nia! Win a MISTI!!!

May nia

Iliana at My Sweet Petunia  is doing something crazy good all month long… she is giving away a Mini MISTI every single day in May! Holy Cow!

We have a great line up of awesome bloggers participating in this amazing event and today is my day to give one away and I am so excited!

I will be choosing a random Mini MISTI winner from all comments between today and  Friday May 13th at Midnight CT. One comment per person please. I will announce the winner on Saturday May 14th.

Today’s project uses stamps and dies from Concord & 9th (Birdie Banners and Friend Like You die), Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst and my Mini MISTI .

Freinds Jeanne_Streiff

I started out by die cutting watercolor paper (smooth side) with Concord & 9th’s Friend Like You die. Then I played around with placement a bit on my  Mini MISTI  and then stamped the birds in archival ink.2 Friends Jeanne_Streiff

Next I watercolored with Color Burst and a water brush. After I was done I didn’t like the birds in red… no problem. 3 Friends Jeanne_Streiff

I had some watercolor paper left over from another project already painted with Turquoise Color Burst . I positioned my birds onto the painted paper in spots that I liked and stamped in archival ink. This was the rough side of watercolor paper so I was able to go back a couple times a restamp the image with my handy dandy Mini MISTI until I had a perfect image.4 Friends Jeanne_Streiff

I cut out (old school with scissors) and added my pretty blue birds on top of the red birds… ah much better!5 Friends Jeanne_Streiff

To finish off my card I attached the centers of the letters and touched it up with a little paint in those spots. Can you tell I create as I go? I had originally planned to leave the centers open but changed my mind at the end. Friends KO Jeanne_Streiff

MISTI and Concord & 9th!

Please join the MISTI team for a hop with Concord & 9th!

One lucky person who comments on the hop will win a Mini MISTI!

 The prize will be randomly chosen from everyone who leaves a comment on every post. The winner will be announced on the My Sweet Petunia Facebook Page on Friday.

I used the Flourishes Stamp Set. What a fun set! Lots of flowers (and flower parts) to mix and match. So much fun. The Concord & 9th April release can be found here. They are also doing a special where if you spend $60 you get a super cute stamp set! Check it out!

Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

First I used my Mini MISTI to stamps the leaves. 1 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

Then I added some blue flowers (Soft Sky & Bermuda Bay). It’s pretty just like this…but I wasn’t finished playing just yet.2 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

I went to town with the wee little dot stamps (they work great as a little accent for the flowers or a flower center). Then I wet all the little flowers and let the ink (Rich Razzleberry) bleed a bit. Then I did a wash background using the same ink as the lighter part of the flower (Soft Sky). After everything was dry I painted some circles onto the background with white acrylic ink. I also edged the flowers with a marker to define them a bit. 3 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped the sentiments on a strip of white cardstock and then cut to size. 4 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff

I added some pearls and doodled my card edge with a fine black pen.  I added a few accents with a white gel pen.5 Hello Friend Jeanne_Streiff
