Love Multi Step Stamping with Misti

… is just a few of my favorite things!

But before I break into song …  which I could easily start singing because TODAY is a BIG DAY at Kitchen Sink Stamps … but, you will have to keep reading to find out why.

First, it is true, there are few stamping tools I have grown to truly LOVE and would never want to part with … one is my Silhouette electronic cutting machine and the other is the MISTI!

The MISTI makes it so much easier lining up each step when multi-step stamping and a dream when stamping multiples of the same card! I would have to work really hard to get 3 sunflowers precisely in a row without using the MISTI, and no way could I stamp an exact duplicate of the same card as I did here!

And what could I love more than multi-step stamping with the MISTI… but have a super FUN 
BLOG HOP together with My Sweet Petunia (the creator of the MISTI)!

I made this card for Sarah Moore, who has broken her foot … in TWO places!!! How awful!!! 😦 If you get a chance, go over and wish her well. 😀daisy-get-well

My inspiration came from 3 places today. First the Sketch Challenge on the Planet – SK031409 (hosted by Tammy YaHoo!). Second, from Color Throwdown #33 – CTD33 and third, from Sarah’s foot cast! Sarah’s cast is bound to make anyone smile!!! 😀

I sure hope you mend quickly, Sarah ... and aren’t going too crazy with not being able to drive!!!! 😉

Monday KSCrew Challenge – Take 2

Yes, same card, different look.

I wanted another version of yesterday’s card (Lori’s KS Crew Challengemulti-step stamping using no flowers), that I felt was more suitable to a male, since the first one was better suited for a female. 😀

Monday in the Kitchen with another Crew Challenge

bw-lori-flower-with-nameAre you in the mood to do some 3 Step stamping today? I am! 😀

Today’s Crew Challenge is hosted my KS Crew member, Lori Tecler!!!

Lori’s Challenge: It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 -with a twist. For this challenge, let’s show off some of the non-floral multi-step images from Kitchen Sink Stamps. Apples, hearts, shells, bells, hula girls, and baseballs–they’re all fair game for this challenge.

Here is mine. Thank you Lori … you know how I love to multi-step stamp! 😀

PLUS, thank you all for the great comments and emails for the “Roses – Color Recipe” for the 3 Step Hearts & Roses. Here is another Color Recipe for the Teddy Bear from 3 Step Get Well Teddy.
