My Sweet Petunia and Kitchen Sink Stamps




Today is a fun day in the Kitchen for a couple of reasons. For one, we are doing a collaborative blog hop with My Sweet Petunia. I have long been an owner and a fan of their amazing MISTI (Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented) and have been a devoted user of it from the time it was introduced to the craft market. Layered stamping and the MISTI are truly a match made in heaven! I am the proud owner of three MISTIs: two originals and one mini, and I will never again be without one.

Fourth Monday is always a Let's Make a Scene Day for my Kitchen Sink sponsored design.
For today's scene I have mixed images from Multi Step Classic Old Truck, Multi Step Trees, Multi Step Birch TreesMulti Step Pumpkins, 3 Step Baseball (I made the fence posts from the baseball bat), and Multi Step Snowy Cabin.




The mini MISTI I use most often when I am working on small individual images like the pumpkins. I love to use it whenever possible due to its small footprint on my work surface. Here is a look at how I got started on this card.



The rest of the card was created in the original MISTI with its larger work surface. This card measures 5.5 by 7.5 inches. As you can see, there is plenty of room to work with. I stamped the truck first and after masking it, I added the road and grass before stamping the background tree.


I finished the scene by adding the cut out fence posts and the pumpkins to the foreground, brushing some color on the sky, and stamping the sentiment.




Please check out the KSS designs created using the MISTI from
The Kitchen Sink Crew and the My Sweet Petunia Design Team.
