My Sweet Petunia & Right At Home Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to your next stop of the My Sweet Petunia & Right At Home blog hop! You should have come from Giovana Smith page. Today the design teams are sharing some great inspiration using both the MISTI stamping tool and Right At Home stamps. Keep reading for more prize information🎉🎉
I will start by saying I am a huge fan of both companies! The MISTI was one of the first card-making tools I purchased; it’s a game changer. RAHS products are also among my favorite stamp companies. Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite techniques, stamping my own background patterns; it is my go-to when I can’t seem to find my mojo. Here are my cards, two 4.25 x 5.5 (A2) and one 5 x 7 (A7):

The process for all cards was the same; I used the Fall Leaves stamp set for the pattern. Thanks to my MISTI, I was able to re-stamp the images as needed for added shading (rock-and-roll technique) and getting great ink coverage. This tool also makes mass-producing cards a snap!     

For the A2 cards, I first stamped a 4.25 x 5.5 size of cream cardstock and later cut into two panels using both rectangle dies from the Find the Beauty die set for each card. For some added dimension and interest I popped up the smaller center panel of each card with foam tape.  These smaller stamped panels alone would also make great menu cards or place cards for your Thanksgiving dinner or fall party.

For the A7 card, I stamped a 5x7 cream panel and cut the edges clean. Next, I heat embossed a few different sentiments for the various cards using the Fall Sentiments stamp set and the Script Greetings and Sweet Stitches die sets. Finally, I added a little bling with matching colored sequins on the smaller cards and green deco foil accents on the larger. I finished by adhering each panel to a green colored base. 

I trust you are enjoying all the inspiration on this blog hop. Your next stop is the super talented Chris Dayton. If you experience a broken link or would like to start at the beginning see full list below.

Prize Info:
Two winners will be drawn from all the comments on the hop, but you must leave a comment on every blog to be eligible to win one of two prizes: Winner's choice of an original or mini MISTI, plus a prize package from Right at Home that includes the Sunflower stamp set, newly released Harvest Blessings stamp set, and two Distress Oxide Inks in Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint! Deadline for comments is September 8th at noon Central.

Happy blog hopping!-Michelle
