Friday Focus – I Like You Just the Way You Are + GIVEAWAY

Hello, all!

In today’s video I’m creating a card using the cute, new Purrfect Pair stamp set from Mama Elephant (SSS | ME). Aren’t those kitties adorable!? There’s a coordinating die set (SSS | ME), too! I stamped the kitties perfectly using a MISTI (see giveaway info below) and colored them with Copic Markers.

The tag was cut using Paper Smooches’ Gift Tags 2 dies. And the card base was embossed using an embossing folder from Sizzix.

Iliana, the creator of MISTI, was kind enough to offer a MISTI to one of my readers! For your chance to win a MISTI, please enter the giveaway below.

NOTE: The MISTI I showed in the video was an earlier version of the MISTI. The latest version is screen printed. Please see this video for proper use and care of a screen printed MISTI. Also, there are updates at their blog.

Inked Shaker Cards with Jennifer McGuire

NOTE: Since I’m out of town this week, I thought it would be fun to have a guest video and post by my good friend Jennifer McGuire. I just love her inky cards and I hope you do as well! I’ll be back on Wednesday with Q&A video with Jennifer, too. So watch for that. :) You can check out Jennifer’s YouTube channel HERE.

I asked Jennifer if she would create some inky cards for you guys. And boy did she! So cute! She ended up creating three–yes, THREE!–cards!

She added some water resist and shimmer mist. Doesn’t it look so pretty?

I also love that she used beads and sequins inside the shakers.

Be sure to watch her video below for lots of tips and tricks for creating inky backgrounds and also for creating shaker cards.

Thanks, Jennifer!
