My Sweet Petunia and Power Poppy Hop


Hello Everyone!  Hang on to your hats, My Sweet Petunia meets Power Poppy for an explosion of ideas and a massive hop with both Design Teams!!  Are you as excited as we are??!!  Not only is the hop exciting but you also have the chance to WIN the Power Poppy Giveaway (there are TWO $25 gift certificates) and the MISTI Giveaway (winners choice of original or mini)!!!  To have the chance to win you have to comment on EVERY BLOG!

MISTI Winners will be announced on this page of the My Sweet Petunia blog on April 14th. Power Poppy Winners of (2) $25 gift certificates will be on the Power Poppy Blog on the 14th.


Lets get into my project today!

Let's see how I used the Mini MISTI to create my card!  For the feature panel I die cut the piece of card and then lined up the image and the sentiment (nice to know the sentiment is always STRAIGHT with the MISTI!) - I've used Sweet Memories for the image and Loving Tulips for the sentiment!


I've stamped the image and part of the sentiment in black (if you don't get an even impression, it's so easy to stamp it perfectly again!).  Then I've inked up the bottom part of the sentiment in a lavender ink and stamped it - twice actually - to get a nice, well inked impression especially as this ink is a little pale.

You can use the same idea to place the stamps of the other sweet peas around the edges of the larger panel (use the super strong magnets so you can put your panel in the centre of the MISTI and have the stamps go around the side).

Once I've stamped the background, I've coloured the Sweet Peas with Copics (V000, V01, V12, V15, V17, G40, G43, G46) and matted both panels with brown card, attached some hessian (burlap) ribbon and pink ribbon around it and attached to a Sweet Sugarplum card base, popping the feature panel up on foam tape!

I'm sure you can't wait to see what the Sweet Petunia girls and Bloom Brigade have created for today - so make sure you pop by these blogs and don't forget to comment for your chance to WIN!!!

"for an explosion of ideas" Oh boy let me tell you... I feel like a bomb of new learning techniques has gone off. I am so thrilled with this blog hop learning so much. Thank you! Your card almost made me cry. I found out this was daddy's favorite flower, just before he died. I sent seeds over for him and mom to plant and we just found them. I am going to plant them and think of him every time I see one.
XO April
