Dazzling Backgrounds

 Hello!  I am on the My Sweet Petunia Blog today sharing how I created dazzling backgrounds in a snap!  For step-by-step photos head on over to My Sweet Petunia!

Here is what I used for my first card:

Tooled Leather by Impression Obsession
Quietly On by Impression Obsession

 I love how this one turned out!  Twisted Citron played well with Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves!  

I like to keep the main image or background stamp in my Original MISTI until I am completely done with the project.  In case disaster strikes and I ruin a piece or I just want to make more it's nice to keep the stamp in place. So for sentiments, I reach for my MINI MISTI. The Mini is lightweight and takes up so little space that it's a must-have for me!  


Using the MISTI it was a snap to create a dazzling array of backgrounds!

For this fiery version, I used Mustard Seed, Fired Brick, and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. 

The die-cut is Birthday Words by Impression Obsession

On the inside, I added a Double Dip Note.   I love these notes that give friends permission to pass the card on when they have loved it enough! The other tool I use almost every time I create a card is the Cut-Align rulers.  I love that they have a 0 center for perfect balance and I love the grid lines.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
