My Sweet Petunia and Unity Hop!


Hello Everyone!

Today I am excited to be participating in a blog hop featuring two of my most favorite companies, Unity Stamps and My Sweet Petunia!  If you are looking for the Growing in Unity post, go HERE
If you follow my blog, you know how much I use/love Unity Stamps!  What you usually don't see is the incredible stamping tool that is used behind the scenes- the MISTI.  The MISTI is amazing for so many things- mass card production, perfectly straight sentiments, perfect stamping of solid images and so much more!!
Of course there are prizes for this blog hop!  Everyone who leaves a comment on all the blogs in the hop will go into a drawing for 3 prize packs from Unity and winner's choice of an Original or Mini MISTI. Please comment by May 30th at noon Central to be eligible. Winners will be posted on both the Unity Blog and the My Sweet Petunia blogs on May 31st.

I have two different takes of one stamp for you today~


This gorgeous floral image is from a Unity KOTM, Midnight Kisses.

The image is of two flowers.  I stamped the image with my MISTI, then positioned it a second time exactly where I wanted it with the MISTI.  The first two flowers were masked and the third was inked up and stamped.  The sentiment is from the same set.
Then I tried a different version of the above card.  I stamped the three flowers, as above.  Then I added more flowers using the Single Flower Miracle stamp.


And this is what I ended up with~


Same basic design, extra flowers and different colors gives you a very different card.  I love these flowers!  The sentiment is from the Girl Truly Sentiment Kit.  Flowers on both cards are colored with Copics.
Your next stop on the hop is Lisa Arana's blog.



Thanks for stopping by and for hopping with us!
