Butterflies Birthday Wishes | Julie Hickey Designs

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing these two birthday cards featuring the Layering Flutterbies Stamp & Die Set from Julie Hickey Designs and for my sentiment I have Birthday Best Wishes Stamp Set also by Julie Hickey Designs. Julie, the owner of Julie Hickey Designs, was so kind to sent me these products and I have to be honest, I’m having so much fun playing with her stamps and dies. I love that most of her stamp sets already come with the matching die, isn’t that awesome? I totally recommend everyone this brand. If you have a chance please check her account on Instagram @juliehickeydesings.

Let’s begin! I started by die cutting the three butterflies from the Layering Flutterbies Stamp dies and I placed the the negative part in the MISTI. I will be using this negative part to align the stamps with the die cuts. Then, I place back the three die cuts inside the negative part and I stamp with white ink the teal butterflies using the Layering Flutterbies Stamp.

I repeat this process but this time I stamp the turquoise butterflies with WOW! Embossing Pad and then I heat embossed them using WOW! Metallic Brass Embossing Powder.

Next, I die cut a rectangular frame out of a light blue cardstock, which will be my card base. Using the Birthday Best Wishes Stamp Set I stamped and heat embossed on this card base with WOW! Metallic Brass Embossing Powder. Then, I adhered a white folded notecard at the back using glue.

Finally, I added the butterflies die cuts on top of the background using foam tape for more dimension. I trimmed down the edges and also added some jewels for the perfect last touch.

My second card was made following the same process.

I changed the placement for my sentiment on this card and for more contrast within the butterflies I used gray cardstock that was heat embossed using WOW! Metallic Brass Embossing Powder. The other color of cardstock for the butterflies was fuchsia and I stamped on them with white ink.

Again, as my last touch I added these jewels that I think were just perfect for this background.

I hope you liked these cards and try Julie Hickey Designs products. They have a great quality and wonderful designs too. Thanks for stopping by and have a phenomenal day!

Your friend,

MISTI and Dare2BArtzy Blog Hop Collaboration

Hello crafty friends! Today MISTI has teamed up with Dare 2B Artzy for this fabulous Blog Hop Collaboration full of inspiration and a GIVEAWAY just for you.


Both companies are giving a $20 gift card to each store and a coupon code FALL10 for 10% off purchases from 10/29 – 11/8 (excludes sale items). So please leave a comment on each blog post to enter this awesome giveaway! And Good Luck!

Let’s start! I have created two cards for this blog hop, one slimline and one A2 panel. The stamps and dies are Honey Bear and Buzzy Beez. You can combine these two stamps because they match perfectly.

I placed all stamps inside the MISTI and stamped them using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and I colored them with Copic markers. Before die cutting, I placed my sheet inside the MISTI again to stamp one more time and get those black outlines more define. Next, I proceeded to die cut all images using the coordinating dies.

I die cut the slimline panel and additionally I die cut a circle right in the center of it. I applied Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink in two ends of the panel using a Life Changing Blender Brush. Then I adhered a black slimline notecard at the back of this panel using foam tape.

The circle I die cut from the center of the slimline panel was colored with Speckled Egg and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks using Life Changing Blender Brushes. Then, I inserted this die cut in the center of the panel using glue.

I die cut the honeycomb out of orange cardstock four times and arranged them along with all the other images at the top, middle and bottom part of the panel using glue and foam tape.

I also, placed another piece of cardstock inside the MISTI and stamped all the sentiments, then I adhered them to the background with foam tape and this card is done.

For my second card, I used a stencil to applied color to this panel. I used Speckled Egg and Curved Pumpkin Distress Oxide inks.

Next, I arranged all images around the panel using glue and foam tape.

Finally, I stamped all the sentiments using VersaFine Black Onyx ink and to do this I simply placed this panel inside the MISTI and stamped both sentiments and this card is finished.

Fabulous Card | My Sweet Petunia

Hello friends! Today I made this card for My Sweet Petunia Blog and I’m using a Build a Flower Anemone Stamp Set and Script Word 2 from Altenew.

Let’s start! I gold heat embossed the outline layer of these flower and leaves using WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder. In order to stamp the 3 images at once I used my MISTI just like you will see in the next picture, this way you gain time and in case you didn’t have a good impression, you can always stamp again with your MISTI.

Once all my images were stamped I gold heat embossed them. By the way, I’m using a colored cardstock Lavender Fields from Altenew for this card. Next, I stamped the detailed part for the flower and leaves using Altenew Midnight Violet ink. I achieved this with the help of my MISTI, positioning and stamping all 3 stamps at once until I completed my panel. See picture below.

After stamping all the detailed images, I die cut the Fabulous word die out of gold cardstock and to get more dimension I die cut four more times the same die but this time using Deep Iris cardstock.

I added a white note card at the back of my background and then I adhered as well the stack of die cuts that I glued one on top of each other.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI with gold embossing powder over Midnight Violet cardstock and placed it on top of the fabulous word. As the final touch I added a few Antique Gold sequins and my card is finished. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
