April Showers Bring May Flowers.

Welcome to our Fun Stampers Journey "May Flowers & Growth" Blog Hop! I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you arrived here from Christine Pennington's blog, you're on the right track. If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

On April 16th, I and several other Fun Stampers' Journey Coaches did a blog hope called April Showers.  There were many wonderful takes on that phrase, and interesting techniques shown.

I love it when I get a stamp set that's bundled with a die cut set.  But sometimes it gets a little frustrating getting the stamp or die exactly right.  But the MISTI helps me resolve this issue.

Step 1: Cut out the shape on a scrap piece of card stock.

Step 2: Place the scrap piece of paper in the MISTI and fit the stamp in to the space created by the die cut, and pick up the stamp with the door/lid of the MISTI.

Step 3: Cut the same shape out of the card stock wanted to stamp on.

Step 4: Place die cut in the space created by the die cut in the scrap piece of card stock

Step 5: Ink the stamp and place image on the die cut piece
Step 6: Admire how easy that really was.

Step 7: Using the Bloom tool, flip the flower over and drew circles with the ball tool

Step 8: Repeat steps 3-7 twice, add a little bling in the middle of the flowers, and place on card

Thanks for hopping to my blog. Please head over to Kim Lamos' blog to see what he/she has to share.

Thanks for the explanation and pictures. I have never tried cutting first and then stamping - you've inspired me to give it a try.
