My Sweet Petunia and Crackerbox/So Suzy Blog Hop

Hi Everone,
I am delighted to be on the MISTI and Crackerblox&So Suzy Stamps blog hop!
Perhaps you came from the talented Jeanne Streiff


After all I really treasure my MISTI and rarely ever make a card without it!
I was curious about the creative corners and I am going to show you haw to use them.

Quoting from Simon Says Stamps:
These magnetic corners and positioning pieces combine to provide even more possibilities for precision stamping. Create angled designs with diagonal positions for perfectly aligned stamping, card layers, tape or embellishments. Also use as internal bumpers and additional corners for the MISTI. Magnetic corners are used to create off the edge designs, as well as opportunities for precisely layered, spotlighted or telescoped designs with no measuring. The two corners and two triangles also work in the mini MISTI. The L-ruler only works with the regular size.

And here is my card:

I put the magnetic bumper into the right hand corner and layed down the triangle. Lined up my



Made a mask with a post it note and masked the first hat,




repositioned my stamp and stamped again.



Repeated this.


Trimmed a piece of patterned paper, although in the end I decided on the black damask paper, but forgot to take a picture.....marked with pencil, where I cut the pape.


Colored the hats with Inktense pencils.


Took the Halloween sentiment stamp and cut it apart. Lined it up 


  and stamped the top half in black and the bottom half in Versamak ink and heat embossed it in white.


Added black splatters.
