Mini MISTI



It's a new year and I have a new product to share.  I actually have been sitting on this for two years. Mini MISTI was created at the same time as the original.  That's right I have had it all along.  One of my friends was surprised that I could keep the secret for so long.

It is a great companion to the original.  Mini MISTI is perfect for smaller projects.  A folded A2 card will fit in this 6 x 7 version.  The stamping area measures 6 x 4.75. Although the stamp area is much smaller, you can still get a lot of techniques out of this little beauty. The smaller footprint will be awesome on our desks.  Not to mention how stinkin' cute this is.


The one you see here is one that I made.  Let me tell you that it was even harder to make the little one.  Not sure how I survived making the originals way back in the day.

I have a short video on how this Mini MISTI works.  It's a short video and the techniques are not limited to those you see.  The video is so fast because I was limited to 2 minutes to enter into the CHA Hot Products Showcase.   The Mini was selected as a finalist in the CHA Hot Products 2016.

Mini MISTI is available for preorder at My Sweet Petunia.  Estimated shipping is March 1st.

I hope you love this version as much as the original.

  9. What a cutie! Looks like it would fit into a purse. I'm thinking your next new product will be a 12x12 one!

    1. That was my dream too. Who would have thought my first time at CHA, I would get stuck at my own booth. I never imagined that!

  18. Hi Iliana, I have purchased 2 Big Misti's from you and definitely want the mini, we now have a suppler in the UK and I wondered if they will get this to supply to us. If not I can just pre order, thanks....

  19. The Mini MISTI is darling and perfect as a traveling MISTI. I do most of my stamping on A2 mats (5.25 inch by 4 inch pieces) so this will be a totally awesome and welcome addition to my stamping toolbox. Can't wait for March! Congratulations on keeping the secret for sooooooo long :) And good luck at CHA (I am so tickled for you and your contribution to the papercrafting world).

  22. Absolutely a WINNER!!!! You might want to take snacks for CHA as your booth will be bombarded - I KNOW for I worked in the Cheery Lynn Booth for a couple of years at CHA and they said we would have plenty of time to look around...NOT!....we barely had time to visit the restroom - LOL! Be Prepared for a whirlwind experience!!!
    Paper Hugs,
    Jan!

    1. I hear that is very true. I read on Karen Burniston's blog that last year she barely moved from her booth with Elizabeth Craft Designs. In a more recent blog she mentions trying to be better prepared this year (something about not drinking so much water this time, lol).
      It must be exhausting for designers as well as exhilarating!
      Do you know? Can anyone go to CHA or is it only for buyers for retail shops?

  23. Just preordered the Mini Misti. I have the original Misti and love it. I tried and tried to stamp before I got the Misti and just was never happy with the results. Placement off, ink not even, I finally just thought stamping was not my thing. Then I got the Misti and my world changed. Now I stamp a lot and it is always prefect. Thanks so much for coming out with these amazing products.

  24. Congratulations! I am one of those who loves all things mini! So, yes! This is how some of my Christmas money will be spent (I wish I had made it to the mailbox with the cards I intended to send in for your contest!) I am so happy for you! It is sad you have to be stuck in your booth at CHA...maybe next year ��

  25. I just ordered my mini! Congrats on your nomination!!!

  26. I love watching your videos--just need the MISTI to experiment and enjoy the ease of stamping. It's something I dreamed would be helpful, and now here you are with just that tool!

  29. Being a cancer patient advocate, I do a lot of waiting. Waiting for their treatment to conclude or appointments, PT, etc. Added to that are our road trips, actually train trips for mini get aways and the your MISTI goes with me! I LOVE how it keeps everything inside.
    I absolutely need the Mini MISTI for things like that! It would be easier for me to haul and give me space for more supplies.
    Since I will not need the bigger one once I get the mini, I'LL have one to share.
    Thank you for creating this for all of us, and especially for those of us who travel.
    I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
    Congratulations on the CHA award as well.

  34. Iliana, I can't wait to get my mini Misti. It's definitely going to be a well-loved staple sitting right on my work table in my stamping room, not to mention something easy to travel with. I am sincerely thrilled for your success and your award at CHA. Congratulations! I can't wait to see what your creative mind comes up with next!

  36. I'm excited about the mini! I have 6 by 6 background stamps. Will the mini accommodate that size? Thank you.

    1. No. It won't. The stamp space is 4 3/4 x 6.

  37. Is there any way you can explain how this works instead of just showing a fast forwarded video? How do you know where to place your stamp on the right side for exact placement

  38. Love your product. I purchased one before the Christmas card rush...could not have done so many without it. I then purchased another for my daughter as a Christmas gift. She loves it. We had fun using it together. Now I need to get the "mini"! Can't wait 'til it arrives. Thank you for all your videos as well.

  42. I'm curious about the Misti or Mini and stamping on the inside of a card? I find no videos, etc. relating to it. I'm trying to decide what I want. Insights? Please?
