SugarPea Designs & Sweet Petunia Blog Hop



Hi peeps, welcome to SugarPea Designs & Sweet Petunia blog hop. It is one fun hop and I am glad you can join us. If you've been following the hop order, you should arrive here from Amy Lantz Rohl blog.

To be honest, I was slightly behind to jump in on the Misti wagon. Then, one of my card making friend came over for a crafty weekend and she's like look, you have to have this! Well, she convinced me to get it and boy, it sure made a whole world of difference. I am glad I listed to her. Thanks, Trinh!

Now, without further delay, here's my card using SugarPea Designs This Little Piggy and Special Delivery set.




I start by cutting a panel and then using the mini Misti and Misti Creative Corner, I lined up the envelopes that I want to use for the background. To start I went ahead and stamped both at the same time.

Use the corner of the grids to guide the ruler placement.

Once I have my base, I repeated the process, but since, the envelopes are different sizes, I want to place them accordingly to create the background pattern. During this process, I realized I  need the original size so I can move my panel more freely. Yep, am ordering one and it's on the way. :)


Again, for perfect line up, I use the grids as guidance.

I simply repeating the process till I filled out the panel. The I trim the bottom part as I want the color of the card base to show. I adhere the card panel and then stamped the envelope on the card base using versamark, so  the envelope pattern continue without being too busy.

Once that done, I simply stamped, color, die-cut and adhere the flying piggy with pop dots and adhere the sentiment. Having the Misti sure helped me in lining up the envelopes faster and I finished this card in a pretty short time.




Now, how about some giveaway? SugarPea Designs is giving away (2) $25 gift certificates and MISTI is giving away a Misti (winner's choice of original or mini). All you  need to do is leave a comment on each blog.

MISTI Winners will be announced on this page of the My Sweet Petunia blog on April 28th and Sugar Pea Winners of (2) $25 gift certificates will be on the Sugar Pea Blog on the 28th. Good luck!!

Love all of the different colors
and sizes of the envelopes. The
misti makes it so much easier
to be sure you get a good stamp
every time - less worry about
making a mistake in the middle
of the stamping. The flying pig is
darling.
