Two Step Stamping with the MISTI and Honey Bee Stamps

Hi guys

Welcome to my blog where I am demonstrating some two step stamping with the MISTI and Honey Bee Stamps.


This is part of a blog hop and giveaway between these two wonderful companies. For a chance to win the Honey Bee giveaway and the MISTI giveaway (winner’s choice of original or mini), you will need to leave a comment on each blog. Scroll down to comment on my blog and to find the full list of the other incredible blogs participating in the hop. The winners of the MISTI and the Honey Bee gift certificate, will be announced here at the My Sweet Petunia Blog on April 7th.



I don’t know what I would do without my MISTI now. It has become such a staple tool in my craft room. It used to be quite a skill of a steady hand and a keen eye to line stamps up correctly. Now with the MISTI, two step stamping has become a lot easier.

The beautiful stamp set I am using to demonstrate this technique is called Cherish by Honey Bee Stamps. As well has having this amazing flower stamp that is perfect for this technique, it also has the most beautiful  Cherish sentiment. The font is wonderful.

I started out by choosing three sets of two color combos for the flowers. A lighter and a darker shade of each color family. Firstly, I stamped the solid image with the lighter color using my MISTI. I then repeated this two or three times. I like to stamp the solid image at least twice to ensure a good impression. Then, using the MISTI to line up the  flower outline stamp on top of the solid image, I stamped the second image with the darker color, hence two step stamping!

When I had stamped a few flowers, I did extra ones on some separate cardstock and die cut these. On an A2 card base I added some floral paper. Then, after die cutting a slightly smaller rectangle base around the stamped floral images, I cut one corner off for added interest. This would also allow you to see the floral paper underneath. On the back of this cardstock I added some foam tape and popped it up onto the A2 card base. With the extra die cut flowers, I also added some foam tape and popped them over just a couple of the original flowers. This was for added dimension. For an extra something – something, I added some crystal embellishments to finish the card off.

    I thought at first the yellow paper was white heat embossed – didn’t realize till I read that it was patterned paper. I really like how the stamped images just flowed right into the yellow paper. Nice card
