Joy Clair and MISTI collaboration month: Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! 

I am back with another post for today. March was a month of collaboration with Joy Clair and My Sweet Petunia. and we are showcasing projects using both companies products. 

 Plus if you leave a comment whenever you see this banner you will be entered  to win our prizes: 2 $25 Joy Clair Gift certificates and one MISTI - your choice of original or mini. Winners will be announced in April on both blogs.

For my card today I used the set called Paisley Bouquet. I used my MISTI to stamp it symmetrically on the top and bottom of my card.  I used Versafine Clair, then embossed with Ultra fine embossing powder. Stamped the sentiment in the center and again embossed with Ultra Fine Clear embossing powder. Adhered to a black top folding note card and added pink Nuvo drops as finishing touch. 
Originally I was going to color the images, but after I stamped them I really liked the black and white effect, so I let them be (meaning uncolored :))

Hero Arts: Meerkat Pair

Happy Saturday. I am back today with a cute little card for you using the Hero Arts wood stamp called Meerkat pair. I stamped the image onto Snow Layering paper, colored with Prismacolor pencils, then did some partial die cutting using the Hero Arts Heart infinity dies and avoiding their tails. After that I fussy cut around their tails. I stamped the sentiment onto Black Layering paper and embossed with White embossing powder. For my background I used the Urban Skyline bold prints and stamped it on panel of snow layering paper with Versamark and embossed with ultra fine embossing powder. I assembled my card and added some Nuvo black crystal drops. Scroll down for full list of supplies.
