We are teaming up today with the sweet folks from My Sweet Petunia – the brilliant minds behind the MISTI products - to do a fun product swap!! I’ve mentioned time and time again how much I love my MISTI and the accessories that make stamping absolutely fool proof! So I’m super excited to share a project that I created using some of the new January Release products with the awesome MISTI products!
So, I used the MISTI to do what I’m calling a variation of the “camouflage” technique!! I placed three panels of card stock – Smooth White, Razzle Berry, and Black Licorice – into my Original MISTI and stamped them with the sentiment from the new Sweet Nothings Stamp Set. It’s important to stamp the sentiment in exactly the same place each time in order for the next step to work out perfectly. And that’s only possible with the MISTI. I die cut the white panel using the largest of the elongated hexagon dies from the Blueprints 33 Die-Namics. I die cut the Razzle Berry panel using the “Free with $60 Purchase” Straight From the Heart Die-Namics (just the heart die), and then die cut the arrow included in the Straight From the Heart Die-Namics from the Black Licorice panel, making sure to align all three elements with the sentiment. Once that was done it made it perfectly easy to align the heart and the arrow with the stamped sentiment on the main panel. Here’s a pic of what the panels looked like after stamping and die cutting them.
My other favorite way to use my MISTI is to use the inside left and upper edge of MISTI tool to align patterned paper onto my card base perfectly. Have you ever tried to place patterned paper on top of a card base and have it end up being wonky because you just eyeballed it wrong? Well, the MISTI makes sure that that never happens again. Here are two pictures showing exactly what I did.
I promise you the MISTI will save you a lot of grief!! I can’t imagine my stamping life without it. I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.
