Default April MISTI Monday Challenge 2022

Challenge Title: Sunrise/Sunset
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP56
Date: April 11, 2022

Hi everyone! Apologies for being a week late, it's been a crazy few weeks. It's been a rough few months, I'll not lie, but things ARE looking up.

This month's card I'm sharing was mass produced using my MISTI and my Sticky Mat. One of my closest, best, childhood to adulthood friend's mom died in March. She had Alzheimer's for quite some time. My friend took care of her mother, making sure that the end of her life was spent in her home surrounded by family.

My friend asked me, after the funeral, if I'd make special Thank You notes for her to send people who came to visit, brought food, sent flowers, etc. Her mom loved boats and the ocean, so she asked for a sea/ocean type card and also to use purple, which is the color for Alzheimer's awareness.

I don't ink blend a lot, but I felt doing a purple sunset sky would be beautiful. I didn't have a boat stamp, so I made one on my Glowforge. I think it came out quite nicely. My MISTI really came in handy to make the cloud. I was able to daub Distress Oxide inks onto the cloud stamp while keeping it on the MISTI lid and that allowed me to achieve the desired look with the layers. I used my Sticky Mat from My Sweet Petunia to hold my cardstock in place while I ink blended. I also used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment and used one of the corners to help line up the die cut sky. She was really touched by the card and received lots of compliments.




Your challenge this month is to create a card or paper project with either a sunrise or sunset. You can ink blend or use any other technique you love.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts. My mom is out of the hospital and doing much better.

1. All MISTI Monday Challenge Entries must be uploaded to your member gallery, with the specific challenge keyword, no later than Saturday, April 30th, at Midnight, Central Time to be eligible to win a $50 gift certificate to the My Sweet Petunia store! The winner will be announced on Monday, May 2, 2022.

2. You may combine this challenge with other challenges, and also have multiple entries. Please use a full description on either how you used your MISTI or, if you don't own a MISTI, how you would have loved to incorporate its help!

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

Sorry about your friend’s mother. Glad you were able to provide the lovely thank you cards. Looking forward to the challenge, if I have time. I seem to be a bit busy these days.

Oh, what a beautiful card! That sky could be colored to go with different organizations.

What company makes that die?

Here's my card...

​​​​​​Easter at the Cross by Forest Ranger at Splitcoaststampers

I am so thankful the stamp I used is cling mount rubber so I could stamp it repeatedly with the Misti to get a full/crisp image.

I made another card - using my Misti to get a good crisp image of this well-used clear stamp set...

I used my gel press and some bleach to make this background. I think it looks like a sunset, so here it is for the challenge this month. Barb's Card

MarilynMac It's a die from Hero Arts that was in a kit, I believe. Isn't it beautiful?
