Make It Monday #15: Make Your Own Spray Mists

Addition to my post- I had to make a 16th Birthday card so I used the challenge this week for her card. I made my spray mist with Raspberry Fizz & a pearl powder and then sprayed it on a light pink CS and embossed it with PTI Polka Dot Basics II Impression Plate. I just received my By The Numbers PP so I had to throw that in too. If you click on the photo and enlarge it you can see that I embossed the car with some glittery embossing powder to go with my spray Mist.

Oh My! What a beautiful day in Iowa! It was an absolutely PERFECT day! So, I have to admit I made a couple of simple cards so I could get back outside and plant some more flowers.

I love that this Make it Monday taught me something new that I will use over and over again. YA! This is what I learned- slightly wet cardstock=deeper impression when using my impression plates. So excited!

So, I didn't have to make Spray Mist, I already some. ;-) It is a pearl mist that I used on both of these cards. Click on the photos to see them closer, it just makes a pretty pearl finish to each card. I am just so excited about the deep impression on both cards.

Supplies all PTI unless noted: Stamps- Garden of Life and Tea for Two (stamp set and die), PP- Everyday blessings, Scallop & circle die - nestie, Doily Details Collection, Impression Plates - Moroccan Motifs & Diamonds.


  1. Simple, but lovely and elegant. Love the way you cut out the centre piece and placed the image to the back.
    Those impressions look fab!
    Have a great day,

  2. I agree...the cut out is giving me some new inspiration! So glad you used the mists you had. I may give it a try after all!

  3. Beautiful job on both cards! The impressions you got are super. I wish it would stop raining so I could plant some flowers!
