My Sweet Petunia and Power Poppy Swap

More fun for you today with a hop between My Sweet Petunia and Power Poppy. 
To celebrate this collaboration, we have a giveaway for you. From My Sweet Petunia your choice of either the Mini Misti or the Original Misti, and from Power Poppy there are 2 gift certificates of $25.00 each for 2 winners.  For your chance to win be sure to visit the designer's blog on each team and comment. (one comment per blog).
Now on to the fun part. I made a couple of cards to share with you today. 
I love both of the stamp sets and the beautiful details found in each. First up is Party Time.
 I die cut a piece of Neenah cardstock and arranged in it in my Original Misti along with the die that I was going to use. To help with aligning my die I used the L-Shape Ruler that comes with the new Creative Corners. To secure for cutting I taped the die.
I then cut my piece of water colour paper and with the same die centered the die in my Mini Misti and arranged my stamp. I stamped my image and secured the paper with my Creative Corners and proceeded to water colour with Zig brushes. 
 I did the colouring in layers to achieve the deeper colours I wanted.
 Why I love my Misti # 1 is precision stamping, no matter the size, shown with that tiny sentiment in that tiny spot, stamping three (3) times for perfect results.
 Another narrow stamp, not a problem with my Misti. 
To finish my card, I attached the image to my card base, and die cut the deckled oval from the plaid paper and attached. For the top panel I added foam strips before attaching and to finish I added the label and a few sequins.
For my second card I went with a very CAS design, my favourite using the beautiful Loving Tulip.  
 I arranged my water colour paper in my Mini Misti securing with a creative corner and magnet and arranged the placement of my stamp. I coloured my stamp with Zig brushes in yellow and stamped two (2) times. I did not spritz with water as I would do if I were using markers to colour, as there is enough liquid in the Zig for what I want to do. 
 With my aqua brush I then pulled the colour in to the shape of the stamp, then dropped in a light carmine and used my heat gun to dry. I then stamped the leaves using the same method.
Once dry, I coloured my stamp using Carmine Red and stamped a couple of times to get a deep colour, then left to dry.
 In my Original Misti  I arranged my card base along with the circle die, and arranged my sentiment.
Once I picked up the stamp with the Misti lid I could then curve each side a little more for my circle placement and inked, stamping a few times for a good impression. I attached the circle die on foam strips, and added a few butterflies and some sequins to finish.
  I hope my process has been helpful and thank you for stopping by. 

Now it is time to head on over to Kathy's blog.

Following is the list for the hop. Be sure to comment on each blog for your chance to win.
