Heart April 2021 MISTI Monday Challenge

Challenge Title: Polka Time
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP44
Date: April 5th, 2021

HAPPY BELATED EASTER!


Hey everyone! I hope you all had a very nice Easter! Mine was quiet. My birthday was the day before, so I had a pretty relaxing and slow paced weekend. I'm so happy that the weather is warming up and I can feel the sun on my face.

This month I'm sharing a card I made for my nieces birthdays, they're Irish Twins. They used the same products, but I did two slightly different designs.

I decided to use Catherine Pooler's Cocktail Party line and matching paper. These cards are so suited for my nieces...they like their cocktails. They're 36 and 35...which is crazy to me.

I just absolutely love polka dots and when I saw the paper that coordinated with the set, I immediately thought of a card design. I die cut circles from white card stock and the polka dot paper card stock and split them between the two cards. I also dry embossed the white die cut circles with a polka dot embossing folder. I'm not sure if you'll be able to make that out in the photo. I picked out my favorite color of the polka dot paper and used the coordinating Catherine Pooler Ink to stamp the "alcohol" in the glasses.

I used my MISTI to stamp the glasses in black and then the alcohol layer. I also used it to stamp on my die cuts by using the negative space technique to perfectly align the image on the die cut. Can you even imagine trying to stamp on die cuts without the MISTI? I cannot...and I will not....lol.

Your challenge this month, if you choose to accept, will be to make a card using polka dots in your design, however you like. You can stamp them, use polka dot paper, use circle dies....anything. I loved how I used the circles 3 times. Die cuts, paper and embossing folder. It really pulls all the elements together and makes it cohesive.

I hope to see you all contributing and I look forward to looking at all the pretty cards you guys enter.

Have a wonderful April!

It looks like no cards have been added to the gallery with that keyword, or at least, no one has left there link on this thread. Misti Monday does not post to the gallery but attaches hers to the first post. Any others, will have a day lag as all keywords seem to have a day lag right now. Does this make sense to you?

When I make cards using older wood-mounted stamps I am reminded how much value there is in owning a Misti. On this card - HERE - I wasted three pieces of cardstock in attempts of getting a decent stamped image.
