MISTI 101: The Basics

09:00


Hi Crafters,
yesterday, we took a look at the MISTI itself - which one is right for you, what is does, is it worth it, etc. Today we are heading into the fun stuff and that is actually making something!  Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a MINI MISTI sponsored by So Suzy Stamps if you haven't already!


a Rafflecopter giveaway


Note: If you have taken a technique week class before, I previously did free downloads of the instructions for the cards. I found the number of people downloading them was not worth the time put into them - so I'm trying something new. Making some nice graphics that you can save, print out or PIN to pinterest for your reference! The videos explain everything anyway :) Hope that is ok!

This class is absolutely FREE - if you enjoy it, all I ask is that you share it with someone - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, you mom, friends, whatever! Help me spread the word about my free classes.


I mentioned yesterday that I do not exclusively use my MISTI tool. Two reasons why I don't are that I don't want my audience thinking you need a MISTI tool to stamp pretty things - not true! The second reason is that I don't like stamping the same image over and over on a card base with the MISTI. That is the only time I find it not as efficient as a block. However, as in the graphic above, there are times when using the MISTI is just the responsible thing to do ;) 



For all the watercolour lovers out there, this card is perfect for someone (like me) who make not have a lot of painting skills. Also it shows off how great the MISTI is when stamping images onto textured paper! I used to avoid the textured side of watercolour paper for years before getting the MISTI.

This card here is from my previous MISTI series that I am redoing and removing the old videos due to poor quality. Do you own a background stamp like this one that is nearly completely solid? Were you able to stamp is properly and perfectly - ever? I know I couldn't before MISTI :)

  5. Gorgeous card! I think my favorite stamping technique would be embossing. Being able to create an area of resist is great for ink layering and it adds and extra emphasis to anything.

  10. I really love sponging cardstock. But I also love heat embossing. There are so many great techniques out there, though, that I'm not really sure I've found my "favorite" yet. lol

  11. Thanks so much for the video, and the classes! Even more eager for a MISTI now. :) My favourite stamping technique at the moment is using embossing powders. Loving using versamark ink & clear embossing powder with watercolours over.

  12. Love the watercolor and thanks for the tips of using the Misti. I've had so many cards messed up when I tried stamping the sentiment and it doesn't do on as full or dark as I wanted. This seems like the perfect solution.

  17. This is the most basic use for the MISTI but also the most important! I had all but stopped stamping before the MISTI came out due to frustrations in getting the perfect impression. This wonderful tool answered my prayers! Thanks for your time putting together and filming this class!

  20. I am loving your series on the Misti Justine, your step by step approach is so easy to follow. The video's are very inspiring to me, you are really making me want a Misti now, to improve my stamping, I really think it will help me no-end with my weak hands. They don't stop me though, I just do little at a time! Thanking for making the Misti series Justine :)

  28. Sweet card and great tutorial Justine!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your video and INKY INSPIRATION ... I currently AVOID background stamps because I can never get even coverage. Favourite stamping technique? Well that would have to be small sentiments or images, because they are the only ones I can (often, not always) get a clean, crisp image. I confess that I usually attach them rather than stamp directly on to my card panels as I don't want to risk wrecking my work. My current addiction is to heat emboss and colour using the Distress Ink Lifting Technique. Any sections that don't stamp evenly with the Versamark are "fixed" with a Versamark Pen, luckily heat embossing is more forgiving. THANK YOU for the chance to win such a COOL TOOL ... dreaming of becoming a better stamper!
