Default MISTI Monday May 2020 Challenge

Challenge Title: Summer Peek-a-boo
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP33
Date: May 4, 2020

Hello ladies! How was your Aprils? Well, mine was pretty boring, but I have really enjoyed just staying home and not running here and there. Anyone else feel blessed to have to stay home? Or is it just me?

I've been making a lot of cards and it's made me so, so happy. Does your card making mojo come and go? For years I made a lot, then for years I just made a few. So far, since Christmas of last year, I've really started enjoying it again SO MUCH! I think the companies I love are really brining beautiful supplies for me to create with.


One of my newer favorite companies is The Greetery. Betsy Veldman used to be with Papertrey Ink, but started her own company. I think I have 99% of her entire collection.



I used one of her new stamp sets, Fresh Air, and it's matching dies for this card we're using for the month of May. This set reminds me that summer is almost here! The one thing that inspires me is the curtain flowing through the window. I just love the first time it's warm enough to open the doors and windows and let the sunshine in. This card is me fantasizing of summer and window flowers.

I used the MISTI for 100% of my stamping. Those tiny potted plants were 6 layers of stamping! I could NEVER have gotten this type of result with stamping by hand. NEVER. I fall in love even deeper with the MISTI every time I use it.

I got a black one from Hero Arts this past month and it's so sleek! I'm hoping the new MISTI 2.0 will be releasing this month. I'm gonna get me both the Original and Mini MISTI. Anyone else as excited as I am?

For this month's challenge, I'd like you to make a peek-a-boo card with a summer theme. See how my window die cut peeks through to the inside of the card? Use a die to create a window in your card(s).

I hope to see lots of entries this month! I don't know about you, but I'm making lots of cards!

Enjoy May, ladies! My area is still under sheltering at home orders, so I've got lots of time to create!

Thanks so much and can't wait to see what you create!


UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. All MISTI Monday Challenge Entries must be uploaded to
your member gallery, with the specific challenge keyword, no later than Thursday, April 30th at Midnight, Central Time to be eligible to win a $50 gift

3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when

I have never made a peek-a-boo card. I'll google it and see what comes up. I too want to find out what the new MISTI has in store for us. I need to order the 12 x 12 one. I scrapbook and don't want to miss the opportunity of having one.

Will the deadline be Sunday, May 31st?

I was too busy on Monday doing birthday fun with myself! You only turn 62 once in your life and with stay-at-home happening there wasn't much excitement.

I don't think I've done peek-a-boo cards...and Sally thank you for the link...I'll go check it out for the fun of May.

Mine is a pretty simple window card. I think it's fun to see part of the image through the window. I used my MISTI to line up and stamp the image and the sentiment.

Default I’m confused

Is the challenge for the peek a boo card for May, or was it for April? Was that the winner for April? The challenge directions say it must be uploaded by April 30. But, it wasn’t posted until May 4th. Hence, the confusion. I love your peek a boo card, though! It’s beautiful!

Hi Barb, Welcome! I am not Misti Monday, but maybe can answer your question. The peek-a-boo is for May. She usually performs a cut-and-paste on the challenge write-up, and was probably in a hurry. The deadline will be the last day of May, which is May 31, as it is the last day of each month.

Hope to see your peek-a-boo creation. I need to get busy before the month gets away. Blessings!

I’m new to challenges, though I’ve been on this site for years. What is the month’s keyword? Is that the title?

Hello, Welcome! Here is the keyword: Keyword: MSP33

You will find it in the first paragraph of Misti Monday's challenge post. Hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing your card. Blessings!

For all the challenges, there is a unique keyword which may be used to preface your own title but which must be used in the keyword field of your upload in order for your card to appear in the challenge gallery. Effectively, challenge galleries are the result of a search for the keyword.

Here's my front flap card for this month's challenge.

Used two of my MISTI's for the stamping and lining up the base! Such fun!

Here is my card for this challenge:

OSW #1 Poppy Friend

This is the best I can conjure up. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment in each square. Thanks for Looking!

Here's another window card. I used my MISTI to line up the layered stamps and to double stamp for a solid image.

I've had the idea for this card for several weeks. It took me 2 days, but I finally got it all together. Here's the front and inside. Thanks for a great challenge Misti!

I've sat down 3 times to make a card for this challenge...all 3 cards do not qualify...

Life's a journey and let me assure you mine has become more interesting than any I could have imagined!

Still have a couple day to try again.
