You should have arrived from the blog of Julie Cassell, if not hop back or start at the SNSS Blog to make sure you don’t miss anything!

I have a couple of projects for you today. I hope to show you how versatile both SNSS stamps are and how helpful the MISTI is… While I love my MISTI for a lot of projects, it is a must for multiples!

My first project is some simple tags I used on gifts for a fundraiser luncheon. BUT since I had to make several, I wanted to make it as quick as possible…. [At the bottom of this page is a link to a video showing this process but here are quick step by steps pics.]

I cut out some tags using Canson water color paper. I used Through The Trees and chose the small border of flowers. I lined it up in my MISTI and then colored with MARVY water based markers (pink and green) directly on the stamp. I closed the door  to stamp on tags. Once done, I went over it with a water brush. I smeared a little blue for the sky.I  repeated  this  six  times  before  moving  to  the  next  step.

After lining up the sentiment (from Thoughtful Words) in my MISTI, I used my wipe off mouse pad and water based ink to stamp the sentiment – this was just to make sure the spacing worked and the sentiment was straight before I put it on a tag…

Once I was happy with the line up, I used Archival Ink and stamped the sentiment over the floral water color piece.I repeated it on all six tags and then all my tags were ready to attach to the gifts I had made. They were so quick and easy and they made a real impact in the presentation.

My second project uses Outline Alpha, Itty Bitty Blossoms, and Scene Silhouettes:Trees I created a set of clean and simple cards using Canson watercolor paper, Mavy markers, and a crazy MISTI set up.

I did a video showing how I set this card up in my MISTI so I can then quickly create a set. Note: it is about 35 minutes in case you need to come back to it later ūüôā

Here are the finished cards
