I put one of yesterday’s background on a card. I started out using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches but missed the deadline, oops!


2015 Card 101 - Gina K The Simple Things


The card base, designer paper, twine and image are all from last fall’s The Simple Things Stamp TV kit from Gina K.  I stamped the image with SU Tangelo Twist and Old Olive with my new MISTI.  I really did not think I needed this tool but I bought it a few weeks ago…one of those everyone else has one, I must have it too lol!  But I have to say it made a world of difference!


The left image was stamped with an acrylic block and the image on the right was stamped with the MISTI.



The pumpkin was cut with my new Scan N Cut 2 machine. I used birthday money towards this purchase, another thing everyone else has and I had to have it.  This machine is the best!!  I did see one in action before buying it and knew I needed since I can’t fussy cut very well due to arthritis and dies are getting really pricey.  I have loads of old stamps that do not have dies so I think I will get a lot of use out of this tool.  It did cut off part of the curly things but I was okay with it…need to read up on scanning images a bit more to fix that issue.


I need to get at least one more card done before calling it a night!
