Ink Blot Shop and My Sweet Petunia (& a giveaway!) :: Blog Hop

have combined to bring you a wonderful blog hop today! 
(Bonus: there are giveaways!)
If you aren't already following Ink Blot Shop, please be sure to follow along on the @InkBlotShop Instagram account and the Ink Blot Shop Facebook page.
The Project:
The main reason I was originally drawn to the MISTI was the possibility of creating multiples of cards. Of course, I have seen many other benefits of the MISTI in the time I have owned it, but making multiples is still my favorite way to use it.
For today's hop, I used a combination of the Ink Blot Shop Arts & Crafts IconsArts & Crafts Sentiments, and Houndstooth Background stamps in the same layout to create three cards with different looks:
Would you like to see the whole process? I share a quick run-through in this video.
I took the original bright design and toned it down to create a different look by coloring the stamped images with some netural/earth tones.
And then for a quick version, I colored everything the same, just using a slight gradient of color for a little interest:
I love that the MISTI made it easy to stamp some coordinating envelopes as well. (The Arts & Crafts Sentiments set has stamps that work well on both cards and envelopes.)
And did you happen to notice those beautiful turquoise ruler stickers in my video? If you are thinking about updating the ruler stickers on your MISTI (or Mini MISTI), be sure to check out this video showing how I did mine. There are some tips and tricks you won't want to miss.
