10 Months Till Christmas


It is the 24th of February and therefore time for the second Christmas card of 2015.

For my card I have used a Danish sentiment stamp set which I for a long time have considered throwing in the trash. Why on earth would I consider such an action? Well, this stamp set is unfortunately made in really poor quality and every time I have tried to use it the ink keeps pooling on the stamps. And this makes really crappy stamp impressions! And yes, I have tried all kinds of tricks to prevent the ink from pooling!

But this time I have used my MISTI for the stamping and the stamp set has for the time being been saved from the trash!

By using my MISTI I could stamp the sentiment "God Jul" 3 times.....Yes, 3 times was necessary for a decent result! With the MISTI I got a perfect layer-on-layer stamping and could therefore get a perfect impression despite the needed 3 layers.

If you are interested in knowing more about the MISTI, I have made a basic introduction to it in Danish which you can see HERE. 


I also used the MISTI for the stamping of the repeated stripes on the card base. Here I used a method which Jennifer McGuire has shown in one of her videos. 


 Have a good day :o)
