Picket Fence And My Sweet Petunia Collab!

Hello, hello!!

Today Picket Fence Studios and My Sweet Petunia, the genius behind the MISTI aka Most Impressive Stamping Tool Invented, are hopping to celebrate being fabulous. Or maybe it was just to collaborate with their amazing products? Either way, in my mind, it’s going to be a fabulous collaboration!! You should have come here from Karen and the next stop is Susie!

I should start this by saying ‘Hi, I’m Erica and I’m addicted to the MISTI’s‘ I am a totally self-confessed, and not ashamed about it, MISTI addict. I can not overstate how much this amazing tool changed my crafting world!

For my card today I have basically copied a recent card I made with the fabulous Botan Peony stamp, hands DOWN one of my all time favourite stamps from Picket Fence. I absolutely love it! On this one I stamped the flower at a slightly different angle and used a very different colour scheme.

This is a photo of how I coloured the images on that card I used as inspiration. To see the finished card, go to THIS BLOG POST or THIS YOUTUBE VIDEO.

As I mentioned, on this card I wanted bright colour and a real ka-pow! I went with a very un-natural colour scheme for this big peony.

My husband wasn’t sold on it at all and I must admit I had absolutely no idea how this was going to look like when I started. I had envisioned going deep teal at the bottom of the leaves but as you can see, that didn’t happen.

The above photo shows the exact markers I used, in order. The Botan Peony is stamped with the copic friendly Hybrid Black ink. After stamping it a few times with the help of my MISTI, I used a heat tool to set the ink a little before I started colouring.

I originally thought I’d use the Hello Word Die to finish off the card but after cutting out a few pieces and layering them up, I changed my mind. Instead I ended up using a previously made I Miss You Word Die piece, made out of gold mirror card stock and black card stock.

Once this was glued down with the Lawn Fawn glue tube I actually decided to leave it there. Yep, that means no sequins. *audible shocked gasps*

Well, that’s it from me for today. Now it’s time to hop along and see some more fabulous projects! Don’t forget to leave a comment on my blog here in order to be in for a chance to win some prizes! The full line-up can be found below as well as on the Picket Fence Studios blog and the My Sweet Petunia blog if you get lost along the way.

  1. Ka-Pow gorgeous! Love these colors and the peony just fills a card front so perfectly. I couldn’t go one day without my Misti. It has reformed me to a much calmer and less frustrated card maker! Thanks so much to Sweet Petunia. Pocket Fence has such awesome large florals that I love so much.
