Boho Flowers Mini Kit

Today I am sharing in a video how to use the MISTI with the Boho Flowers mini kit and a must have image coming out in my new stamp set releasing Thursday, August 31st, from Gina. K. Designs, this versatile label from Fabulous Rose Frame! 

The MISTI allows for crisp solid, stamped images, exactly where you want them, and so much more!  This tool was so helpful in getting the bold images super solid and the butterfly positioned precisely on the label edges! Video below! Be sure to watch to the end for a landscape version of this card plus a fun detail for changing up the look of the sentiments in this beautiful kit!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial and sneak peek and will subscribe! Please enjoy!
