Spotlight Stamping with MISTI

Time to share one of my MISTI cards!   I have a ton of 'guy' birthdays coming up and as you know, I have such a hard time restraining the urge to bling!  So, when I saw Jennifer McQuire's card using the latest Simon Says Stamp kit I rejoiced out loud and ran to get my MISTI out.

 Have you ever tried spotlight stamping before?  I cannot imagine doing this without clear stamps and a MISTI.  First, I folded a 5 x 5 card base and added the kraft and gold mat from the SSS kit.  I used my favorite candles from the Charmed cart on the Explore and while it was chirping away, I cut a white mat using a Little B stitched die and placed it inside the MISTI. 

I placed the candles on the mat in the MISTI and added the 'Make a Wish' stamp. I closed the lid and the stamp was perfectly positioned.   I inked it up, removed the die cut candles and stamped the mat.  Then, I replaced the candles, inked the stamp and closed the lid again.  Perfect! 

I lifted the candles again and replaced them using pop dots for dimension.  It was actually easy peasy to line them up with the stamped image on the mat because of the grid on the lid of the MISTI.  

Lastly, I used MISTI to position and stamp the birthday wish on the inside.  Done!  

I have to tell you that when I showed the card to DH, he said, "How did you DO that?"  Thank you Jennifer McQuire and MISTI!     I'm going try try this technique again, I think!   Thanks for visiting with me today.  : ) Christine

Treat Bags for the Birthday Boy!

I was so pleased to be asked by my DD to make the treat bags for Master J's birthday party.  The theme is "Explore."  (Can you guess his favorite TV show? Well, this week anyway!)  I really, really wanted to make the 3D backpacks from Campin Critters but... I am so busy this week that I had to go for something a little less time consuming. 

I found these 5" by 5" canvas bags at Michaels and used Cricut iron on vinyl to add names, the theme, and a backpack.  I added four little charms made from the Charmed cart and laminated for durability.

Hope the children like them!  I'll share Master J's card later.  We are off fishing this weekend and I have an RV to pack!  Thanks for visiting with me : ) Christine

'Charmed' is in the house!

My new Cricut Circle cartridge 'Charmed' arrived in the cutest little box!   There's been quite a buzz on the Circle board about this cartridge and here is my contribution to the chatter. 

Don't you love the bright colors of these Back-to-School notebooks?  The initials are embossed and the charms tied on with black CTMH hemp.  They are not going to last 2 minutes, (LOL!) but next time the girls come over we'll redo them with shrink plastic.   Fun!   

Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great Labor Day weekend.  :) Christine
