Default MISTI Monday August 2018

Challenge Title: Brand New Occasion
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP12
Date: August 6, 2018

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a tremendous start to your August. This month's challenge will focus on types of cards you have NEVER made. I want you to think of an occasion you've never had a chance to create a card for, that makes you step out of your comfort zone. I've NEVER made cards for small children. Ever. My kids are grown and I've always just made cards for adults or older teens.


I was given this stamp set by Alexandra Renke and I just love it so much! Unfortunately, I don't have any children to make cards for so I was bummed, thinking I'd never use it. Well, lo and behold I used it for this month's challenge. I've also stepped out of my normal style by choosing dark paper for my card front. I NEVER use anything but white or very light cream or gray. I recently saw a beautiful floral card on dark blue paper and told myself to try it.


So here's the card and I challenge you to make a card you normally don't. Try to bring something new to the card that you don't typically do. Good luck!




I used Night of Navy card stock from Stampin' Up! as my canvas. Boy that felt weird.

I used Wow! Metallic Silver Sparkle embossing powder for all the stars in Alexandra's Unicorn stamp set and Alabaster embossing powder from Brutus Monroe for the sentiment, which is from Papertrey Ink's Inside & Out: Birthday stamp set.





Here's a close up of the unicorn. I used my MISTI to first stamp the outline in Gina K's In the Navy ink and then stamp over it in VersaMark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder from Stampendous. The MISTI allows me to stamp with the VersaMark with precision over the dark blue ink. I also colored in the unicorn with some Wink of Stella to add lots of sparkle and embossed the horn with the same Silver embossing powder I used on the stars.



I also covered the edges of my scalloped edged rectangle die cut with Wink of Stella to add even more sparkle. It turned out so cute!

It's a shame I've never had to make children's cards before. This was really fun for my first time! Now I just need a little girl to send this to!

I hope you have fun with this month's challenge and I thank you all for participating!

Here is my card...not much stamping on this one, except the sentiment, which is gold embossed. Here is my card: A Wedding Story Weaves a Fabulous Quilt!

Here is my card...not much stamping on this one, except the sentiment, which is gold embossed, but I love my MISTI to make sure it is stamped evenly and not at an angle. I always "stamp" it twice to make sure the ink or Versamark is well distributed even on the little letters.

I have made over 24 anniversary cards, 2 bridal showers, but NO wedding cards. What's up with that?!
