So much fun to be hopping with designers from My Sweet Petunia today! You're in for a treat with this talented crew. If you just happened onto the hop because you're a regular reader here, be sure to check out the link list at the bottom of this post so you don't miss anything! If you're hopping already and you came from Kia Clapper's blog, you're doing just fine.
As a stamper, the MISTI has been a huge game changer for me, but as a stamp designer, it's been really amazing as well. I really enjoy creating realistic layered stamp sets like the Sunflower Set I used here, and I can count on perfect placement for each layer with the MISTI. (To see how I position the layers using a clear acetate sheet, click HERE.) So I'm grateful for this tool, that enables me and you to use these stamps with such amazing results. I'll link the other layering sets below (with a coupon code!).
I love using geometric die cuts, and rotating them for a repeating stamped design like this. This time I was having trouble getting the layers positioned just right with the card in the corner, so I created my own corner with sticky notes. I have much better results using the clear sheet rather than just lining up the stamps visually - if you're able to eyeball it, the traditional corner placement will be fine.
I used a variety of dye inks for layering - it's so helpful to have an index of my inks when choosing colors.
Other layering sets in my line: Rose Set 1, Rose Set 2, Peony Set 1, Peony Set 2, Oak Set, Maple Set, Leaf Set - for a 25% discount, use coupon code THANKS at checkout (Wednesday, November 23, 2016 from 12:00 noon EST through Monday, November 28, 2016 at midnight EST.)

Thank you for visiting me today! Happy Thanksgiving!
