Hi Friends! Today I have a fun background card for you using lots of stamp sets and my MISTI. This technique is a great way to stretch your stamps and create something unique…Speaking of my MISTI, have you had the opportunity to join in on the combo blog hop with My Sweet Petunia and Sweet N Sassy Stamps? If not, you still have a week to hop along and comment for a chance to win a $50 gift code to each shop. The link is at the bottom of this post 🙂

For today’s project, I went through all my stamp sets and pulled ones with Birthday appropriate sentiments and images to create a subway art type layout. You could, of course, use any theme you want (I think Thank You and Christmas would be fun too!)

I arranged all the sentiments first, placing them both vertically and horizontally. Then I went back and filled in blanks with images (smaller and larger depending on the open spaces.)

Once the layout is satisfactory, I inked it up and created my card panel. I created a panel on both Xpress it paper and Neenah Dessert Storm (kraft) card and colored it with Copics.

You can create as many cards as you want now that it is set up on your MIST and since it takes a while to set up, I find myself not quite ready to dismantle it (haha!) I think this one would be great for stash of birthday cards – what do you think?If you would like to join in on the blog hop now, START HERE!
