Misti


First off I just want it to go on record that I don't have any links or know anyone at Misti and that I actually brought it from Simon says Stamp. Also this is my blog and I like to honest and truthfully so if this tool was pants I would indeed admit it was an expensive mistake.
The reason I brought the Misti wasn't to jump on bandwagon, I have problems stamping due to dodgy hands for some reason I stamp more to the left than the right. Also I find stamping hard work and painful especially when you stamp lots of images. I'm hoping with the door it will help me with this but I haven't tried loads of stamping yet.
But I can't say its pants because every stamp I used on the above card was stamped twice, even the silver pigment ink for embossing. Ok you still need to pay attention that you put the sentiment stamp on the door straight! But I made this card so quick and it didn't take several tries to get a perfect image with a few making it to the bin. I literally just stamped again on the same image.


I haven't doctored these photos except to make the pixels smaller so Mr Blogger doesn't have a hissy when uploading. I took them in crappy light and immediately after I stamped.
 I was amazed it worked  stamping directly on top


So far I'm extremely happy with my new toy, I even used it today for stamping a sentiment, no more stamping half a dozen just to get one decent one. I stamped it three times on the same stamped words to get a sentiment I was happy with and I didn't have to press hard.
It is expensive and only available in the US, hopefully supplies will trickle into the UK.

  9. thanks for sharing your views with us. I have issues not seeing straight and spend hours trimming and re-trimming and still getting a crooked results. So, I will be on the lookout for this gadget especially as it allows for over-stamping - that could be a life saver!

  15. Looks a good tool Debby, Is it the same idea as the "Stamp-a-ma-jig" will need to keep a look out for it.
    love your card xx

  16. Hi Debby,
    ... just a warning for you and all users of a Misti, the strong magnets used often with Misti are NOT SUITABLE for folks who have PACEMAKER.

    See Darnell's blog, as she made the enquiries because she has one and bought a new Misti with no warning on it.
    Thankfully she did research, and has warned the company. I actually read it al on Mary's blog.. Mary H of Carolina Cards.
    Just good to get the info out there, so glad it helps you, as have issues stamping with my hands too.
    Great card,
    Shaz in Oz.x

  19. This is a pretty stamp and a lovely card Debby but I can see that this large stamp could be difficult to stamp and the Misti seems to overcome these problems especially as you have difficulties with your hands. x
