MFT & MISTI!




Hi everyone! Happy Friday!
I am delighted to be participating in a collaboration with my beloved My Favorite Things and the amazing MISTI! I am SO excited!! 

I, literally, ONLY use a MISTI to stamp. I recently moved my stamp room to a different room and reorganized all of my supplies. I didn’t even MOVE my stamping blocks to my new room! I just do not use them, ever! It is truly a revolutionary tool!

I had a lot of fun creating my card! I’ve used the new Pure Innocence So Much Love, Pure Innocence So Much Love Die-namics and the new Scattered Hearts Background! SWOON! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using one of my MISTI tools (yes, plural, I actually have THREE!), I stamped the background using the Scattered Hearts Background. 

I have this MISTI set up for backgrounds (blue MISTI stickers so I know it’s the one for backgrounds), and I love the convenience! I stamped the Scattered Hearts Background stamps using one color at a time. I began with Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink, then Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye Ink, Berrylicous Premium Dye Ink, and finally Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink. Because you can stamp the same stamp repeatedly, and be assured perfect placement, it was a breeze to stamp all of these colors. I love how they blended to created what looks like six different colors!


Once the background was stamped, I added a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics, and I popped it up with foam tape. LOVE. I then added a heart of Cotton Candy Card Stock (gosh, I love this color!) cut using the Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics.
Next up, I cut this little cutie from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the new Pure Innocence So Much Love Die-namics, and using my MISTI, I stamped her with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using the Pure Innocence So Much Love set. I always first stamp my image onto my MISTI paper, cut out the image with my Die-namics, and then lay the negative frame on top of the stamped image. I then insert the die-cut and re-stamp my image. PERFECT stamp image, EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.


Once she was stamped, I colored her with Copic Markers, and then added her to the card, popping her up with foam tape. I then cut the sentiment panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, and stamped, using my MISTI, the sentiment “I Adore You”, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots. Oh yes, my third MISTI, well it’s the mini, and I have it set up with stamps to stamp the back of all my cards. LOVE!

  2. How sweet is she? I love this heart background stamp as well and how you can achieve so many different colours with only a few inks. Very well done Jodi and I love the idea of having multiple MISTI's set up for other purposes. (I want another Original to set up JUST for my envelopes as I make more 5 x 7's than A2's.)

  25. Love your tip on getting a perfect die cut image - this is so useful for dies that are solid where you can't see the image - will try this one soon!

  26. Your card is adorable, I love her hand heart (the Pure Innocents stamps are so heartwarming to me). I can see why you have 3 MISTI's, I'm still hoping to get my first one but I'm quite certain before it's all said and done I will have at least 3 as well lol (now that I understand how amazing MISTI's really are!!
