MISTI 101: Introduction to the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Ever

09:00



Hi Crafters,
today kicks off Technique Week for the month of May! Over the next five days, I will be exploring the MISTI stamping tool and the various techniques and ways to use it. Of course, I always start out with an introduction video. This video includes facts and opinions on the tool itself - these are my opinions and in no way reflect the opinion of the creator. It is a bit long but there is a ton of information packed in there.



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.




You can win a Mini Misti sponsored by So Suzy Stamps by entering the giveaway below - each option is worth one entry! My Sweet Petunia is also giving a MISTI away every day in May on her blog so check that out as well!

  31. I've been wanting the MISTI ever since I first saw it used. I've been looking to see where I could get it, but the cost is more than I can afford right now. With the new mini-MISTI,I have hope to get one soon. Loved the mirror image idea you did. That is most certainly a technique I would like to incorporate into my stamping. Thank you for sharing these introduction skills.

  37. I love stamps that build dimension with each stamp starting from light to dark. And masking to create multiple florals. The Misti would make these techniques easier and faster. I would so love to win one. Your video was very informative and thorough why the Misti would be wonderful to own!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  64. So glad you posted this video in particular. I was not sure which Misti would be right for me. This helped me tremendously. One of the things holding me back was the price. Winning a Misti would definitely help. Right now I use mostly blocks and the Fiskars Stamp Press. Thank you Justine for this opportunity. Love your videos and look forward to more on the Misti.
