My Sweet Petunia and Technique Tuesday Blog Hop


Hello everyone!! We have another fun collaboration blog hop between My Sweet Petunia and Technique TuesdayAmazing projects will be shared from both Design Teams and chances to win too! 

I have 3 projects for you today! Super fun stamps and coordinated dies!
Let's get started.

Exercise?
Ok, this card is so me!! LOL. I eat pretty healthy, but fries are my weakness, believe it or nor I prefer sweet potato fries, but any fries will do the trick anyway, hehehe.
So, when I saw this set I HAD to HAVE it!! 
I started die-cutting a circle, about 2" in diameter, then I traced it on my 4" square piece of white carstock and started stamping the fries from Planner Yum set, then turning the panel to the right until I completed stamping the fries.
To finish it I started the little hearts in between fries, then colored them with Chameleon Pencils.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Sassy Lazy Thoughts set in Rose Ink.
I sponged the sentiment part with Distress Ink, then die-cut the pie with circle dies and added an scalloped stitched circle behind.
After the card was put on the card base I added Clear Stickles to hearts and fries.

Hello friend
This card was super easy to put together. Started stamping the pretty daisy from Delightful Daisy on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Spectrum Noir Markers, then die-cut with coordinated die.
The background piece created with a Chevron Stencil and clear embossing paste that I added a couple of drops of red ink.
The sentiment was stamped in a piece of black cardstock and die-cut using circle scalloped stitched die.
Finally, added clear and purple sequins, and Stickles
Card size is 5" square.


 You can't choose
This card was a lot of fun to make, hehehehe. I used the flower and heart from Sassy Family Set and started stamping them from the middle and moving up and down 0.5 ", using your MISTI makes the work a lot easier. After stamping the panel, I colored the images and background with Spectrum Noir Markers, after that I covered the hearts with Clear Stickles and flower centers withRed Ruby Liquid Pearls, set aside to dry and die-cut the panel with rectangle stitched dies.
Stamped the sentiment in St. Valentine StazOn, die-cut the sentiment and a background piece and added to card base.
