Default MISTI Monday September 2017



Challenge Title: Perfect Packaging with the MISTIHostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP2
Date: September 4th


Welcome back to MISTI Monday! We have 1 month under our belt, after the inaugural giveaway, and I'm looking forward to many more months to come with all of you! The inspiration for September's challenge came from the seasons that are directly in front of us, Autumn and Christmas. I used an autumn scheme of colors with something that we'll all be doing in the coming months, PACKAGING.


I love My Sweet Petunia's Card Guard mailing boxes. Sometimes my cards can get a little over embellished for just mailing in an envelope - or - I want to mail a gift card set to someone as a gift. The Card Guards are just perfect for those occasions.



For my packaging I used the Memory MISTI, as my box is quite large when flattened out. I wanted to use some alphabet sets I've had in my stash to create a whimsical address (people love seeing their name all pretty). My handwriting is not very good and I am really enjoying the script trend.




I drew my lines on the mailer using my 'L' ruler from my Creative Corners and a light pencil stroke. I mixed between script and block lettering to add interest. My hands really shake, especially during detailed work, so having the MISTI for placement of those tiny letters and numbers helped.



After my address was complete, I then added some fall Sunflowers and sponged around the edges to mute the box front somewhat. For an added touch of interest, I took a Crystal Glaze product and dabbed it onto my Sunflower middles with a small tipped stylus used for scoring my cardstock.






Sending cards or card sets as gifts is one of my favorite things this time of year. Pretty packaging is the added touch to let your recipient know that you really put some love into their mail.


Your challenge for this month is to use your MISTI to nicely address and decorate either an envelope or mailing box for the upcoming fall and winter season.


UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. All MISTI Monday Challenge Entries must be uploaded to your member gallery, with the specific challenge keyword, no later than September 18th, 2017 at 12:00 Noon Central Time to be eligible to win a MISTI bag (your choice of color!) to package your MISTI and other crafting essentials.

3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

I made this envelope to send to a friend...can't finish the address as I don't think she would like it public!

Realized I don't have multi-step stamps since I'm a colored pencil colorer, not a multi-ink user.


Don't know how to rotate the picture.

I hope others participate too Faye. I got rid of all my alphabet stamps in the PRE-MISTI era. Who ever is lucky enough to win the MISTI bag is going to love it. I've had mine a few weeks and I love it to bits. You won't believe how much you can fit into it.
