MISTI and Honey Bee


Hi everyone! Today I am taking part in collaboration between My Sweet Petunia and the AH-MAZING! Honey Bee Stamps and there are give aways, too! SCROLL DOWN  for details.

For my cards I used three stamp sets: for the first I used Kindness and Zen Bouquet, and for the second I replaced the Kindness set with the Thanks and Giving. These became so addictive that if it wasn't already midnight I would have kept making more ;) 

I used my MISTI and the creative corners to create that shadow under the main sentiment using Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink. Watch the video for more details on how I made the cards. (it will be posted shortly)







We are giving away a MISTI (original or mini, your choice) and Honey Bee Stamps is giving away $45 gift certificate. 
For the give away please leave comment on each blog (listed below) for a chance to win the Honey Bee giveaway and the MISTI giveaway
MISTI Winners will be announced on this page of the My Sweet Petunia blog on April 7th.
