i’m not sure if you have noticed, but i’m trying real hard to make more edited videos. To be honest, ever since changing away from my macbook its been a real struggle. It just takes so long to edit. But i *think* i’m getting in the swing of things….. please say i haven’t jinxed myself! LOL
In today’s video I am making an ink smooched background with my distress inks and oxides. I’m using the Mermaid for you stamp set from Lawn Fawn along with some images from the Life is Good set. I love how they coordinate together.
I am also creating a two-tones sentiment which brings in the yellow and peach colours that i have in my scene. The MISTI tool makes this super duper easy! I love it! I also added a sweet ‘with love’ sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag Sayings set.
For the water background i used my distress inks and for the sea bed i used the oxide. I love that there is a more chalky finish with the oxides- i think it kinda makes it look more ‘sandy’. 🙂
This girl really needed some sparkle, so i covered her tailfin with stickles. Just look at that shine! ohhh pretty!
I totally got a smudge on my card… but never fear, nothing that can’t be easily covered by a little sequin or too! teehee!
Here’s the full video. Please watch and i hope you enjoy it. Feel free to leave me a little comment to encourage me to make more edited videos if that what you would like to see. I guess my live streams have made me a little lazy!
Thanks for joining us on this Blog Hop collaboration between Heffy Doodle and My Sweet Petunia. I remember working in a craft shop many moons ago, and teaching people all about stamping. At that time, there was no choice but to practice, PRACTICE, PRACTICE in order to get great impressions. But lucky for us, we now have the MISTI – and I really do think that it is the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented!
If you are hopping along, you will have come from Giovana Smith. Scroll down to find out the next person on the hop, but first, let’s talk about prizes!

Today I have a project showcasing one of the ways that I use my MISTI tool when I am creating. It really does give you more flexibility, and not just with stamping. Today’s video shows how I used the MISTI when using embossing paste in different colours!
Here’s the VIDEO TUTORIAL
and for those who just want to see the photos, here’s a peek at my finished card!

We are testing out a new video software this week. Thats good news for you, because you get an extra video tutorial! 😀
Today’s card is a fairly simple design, but I love the texture created by the embossing paste. And doesn’t this bear just look the CUTEST with his little brolly!
A few weeks back I shared a card for the Love From Lizi birthday blog hop, and I used my gelatos to colour the die cut feather shapes. I got LOADS of comments saying how they loved that I showed a way to use gelatos – so i decided to pull them out again for another fun card. Yep – that’s right, I coloured my rain BLUE with my gelatos. It’s quick, it’s simple, IT’S MEGA FUN!
The bear is from Bitty Bears from MFT and I coloured him with my new Zig clean color real brush markers. The greeting is from Hero Arts.
