Sunset over New York City

Hi Everyone,

I finally found time to play with my MFT New York City die. I wanted it as soon as it came out, but of course it was out of stock. And then it was out of stock and out of stock again....but finally I was successful (gotta be persistent, right?)

It had some time to get comfortable in my stash, but now is the perfect time for its debut - the CASology challenge - its sunshine.


And I wanted to do something different, not just a sun with rays. I masked the sun and sponged the sky. Die cut the silhouette and mounted it onto black cardstock. Added the birds and the sentiment, which both are from STAMPlorations.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
