 It's true, I NEVER stamp without my Misti anymore. My absolute favorite thing about the Misti is that I can get exact placement of a stamped image and stamp again if I didn't quite get full ink coverage. I double stamp all my black sentiments to ensure a crisp, dark image. 


Today I created a duo of sweet little seed packets to give as a little gifty this Spring. I started with the Bitty Window Bag and stamped one of the images from Tall Blooms in Coral and Peach ink on the back side. 




Before Is started stamping, I went ahead and marked the edges of the Bitty Window Bag on the grid paper in my Misti. With all the lines and squares, it is so easy to line things up. This makes for speedy stamping when doing multiples. I simply count the number of squares I move over the bag and then I'll get the same image placement (because I don't move the stamp) with each bag I stamp. 




On the front side of the bag, I used the grid lines to line up the letters from the Alphabetical to spell out the word "seeds" in Stormy Ink. I then got busy with the tag. I love the new Dashed Line Tag Confetti Cut. I cut it from Premium Polar White card stock. I stamped the sentiment from Love Blooms in Stormy and added a few Tall Blooms in the same, Coral and Peach inks I used on the bag. 

This was a perfect example of how I had to stamp the blooms twice. The dashed lines on the tag, made it a little difficult to get a completely inked image.


 So I lifted the lid, inked the bloom again and put it down right in the same spot, to get a complete image. It makes me so happy. Here is the completed project again. 



 I bought a couple of mixed flower seed packets and emptied them into some clear cello bags I had. I trimmed off the tops, to make them fit the size of the Bitty Window Bags, and then folded them over and stapled them close.


I tucked them inside the completed bags and tied on some twine. The tag kind of gives a little peak-a-boo effect and you can slide it to the side to see inside the window. 



The final touch I added was a white heat embossed Tall Bloom on Stormy card stock. I cut it out with the Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts and then then added it to the top of my tags. 


Jeanne Streiff is next!

  11. So glad to welcome Spring-even though winters aren’t to harsh where I live.
    We are renting presently and the owners must have planted bulbs by putting them in one big hole. I separated them 2 weeks ago and your flowers remind me of the hyacinths that are blooming right now.

  55. You're so right: 3-D things like the dashed card or the bags are just impossible to do without a stamp positioner! I love how you made these tags; they go perfectly with the gift, and the colors are lovely and spring-y in a way that the weather has not been recently. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful idea with us!
