Creating with my MISTI and Creative Corners

 I have a few cards to share with you today, along with pictures of how I set up my Misti using the new Creative Corners.  
But first, a bit about the cards. I have a friend who is a gardener of all things wonderful, and I think she would enjoy this card, just because. I used the creative corners to do the stenciling of the brick wall, which is done in lavender using the beautiful Clarity Brushes. I coloured the potted plant with Zigs and die cut to attach to the card base on foam dots. I stamped the little pot, and coloured, along with the birdie. My intent was to place the birdie on the tipped pot with a foam dot, but I did not like him there ... I felt that she should be looking at the seeds that she could eat instead. 😊 I added slight shading under the pots and birds and stamped the sentiment to finish.
 For this next card which I did for a friend to give her mother, I stamped the card base with the flower and sentiment, along with a second piece which I die cut with the oval die. I then stamped the butterfly on the oval, which is a 3 step process, using some distress ink colours. I coloured the flower with distress markers, propped the flower up on foam tape and added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.
 For the pink card, I used the same technique as above, except this time I stamped the base in the pink and the top image in gray on watercolour paper. I watercoloured the top panel using my Zigs and again propped the panel up on foam dots, then stamped the sentiment and added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle. 
Following are pictures of my Misti setup that you might find useful.

I always find it amusing how much goes into making a card. Yet, the process is what I love the most.
Thank you for dropping by today ... I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to seeing you next time.

Sweet Kia, what gorgeous cards! I love how you've made them and shown the various photos. I recently received my Creative Corners that I prepared through My Sweet Petunia, and I love the idea of the corners with the magnets. Beautifully done, and I so love your work! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
