Impression Obsession and MISTI Blog Hop



Hi everybody!  Welcome to my stop on the hop!  I'm going to admit something here - I ran out of time and so I'm doing a super fast blog post!

Here's what I came up with using the awesome Tea Bag Cube 12:



I die cut 8 butterflies and then used one of the negative pieces to line up my stamp to cover the die cut exactly how I wanted.  Then I taped the negative piece down in my Mini MISTI and stamped them half in green ink and half in purple ink.

Next I arranged all the die cuts into a circle and adhered them together.  Finally I added a small sentiment in the center using both inks (done with the Mini MISTI) to get a perfect match!

ETA: I think people were a little confused how I did the card, so here's a quick video I put together:


You'll want to leave comments on every stop on the hop because on Wednesday, October 12th we will draw from everyone who leaves a comment on ALL the blogs in the hop to give away a mini MISTI and a $25 IO gift certificate. Winners will be posted on the IO & MSP blogs and FB pages.

Here's a list of all the stops:

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment!
