Thankful for the MISTI


Happy almost Thanksgiving Day!   Today's blog hop is the brainchild of Lydia.  We will be sharing why we are thankful for the MISTI.

I am so thankful that the MISTI has given me the opportunity to share my card making with everyone.  It has brought so many people into my life.  So, I guess I should say that I am most thankful for the MISTI for all the new friends I have made.

I feel like MISTI has allowed us to share or gift and love of card making with others.  Every time a MISTI helps make a card, a recipient  smiles and receives a little bit of joy and a whole lot of love.



For my card today, I used the Circle Doodle background stamp from Simon Says Stamps.  I embossed it with Hero Arts Copper embossing powder.  Then I just water colored it.  The Grateful die cut was made with a Simon Says Stamp die. 

As part of our blog hop we will be choosing one winner.   The winner will get a choice of an Original or Mini MISTI.  They will also get a second MISTI for someone they are grateful for.   To participate in the giveaway, just leave a comment on all the blogs in the hop by Sunday.  Winners will be posted on the Giveaway Winners tab on this blog on Monday.  


Here are the other stops on out Thankful Blog Hop.   Don't forget to leave a comment letting us know who you are grateful for.

  6. OMG, what a gorgeous background. I do not own a MISTI and can just imagine how it would change my card making. I avoid stamping for all the same reasons given by your blog DT members. I would love to be able to stamp again if I won a MISTI.

  24. Beautiful card and great video. Got a cool tip from it.

    I am thankful for the MISTI because it not only helped me be a better stamper but it enabled my Art class students to stamp their own sentiments for their Mother's Day cards that we make in class. I am hoping to acquire more of them so my students won't have to wait so long in line to use it.

    I am thankful to the almighty for all the blessing he has showered on me.

  55. I went on the Blog Hop and can't remember if I commented here, at Home Plate! I am thankful for all the card crafters who took the time to share their lovely creations and thankfulness for the MISTI. I am thankful that you took a rather crude ide of a "case stamp gadget" to a whole new level of professional alignment product. I would not be able to do the intricate designs that I enjoy creating without MISTI, so thank you for persevering until you brought an excellent product to market. Congratulations on your entrepreneurial spirit!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

  62. LOOOOVE your card! I too like the stamp from SSS---Doodles Background! ;) I am thankful for a new friend I made not that long ago. I've lived here for 10 years---in the country--I'm a city girl removed to the country. It was definitely an adjustment for me--culture shock! It's kind of a back woods unfriendly place to be truthful.... I got into stamping because of the lack of friends. But, I made this friend recently, & she has me giving card making classes now at her home. I've showed her my Original Misti & she LOVES IT! I would LOOOOVE to present her with one of her own! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

  66. I still don't have a MISTI, but this looks like the perfect tool for making multiples, and for improving my stamping in general. I make a lot of cards for local nursing homes, and a MISTI would make my card making easier and more fun. Thanks for sharing your fun card with us!

  116. Very pretty card, but it would only go to someone who would appreciate at the time that went into it! I'd love to have the original Misti to be able to use the extra large background stamps, which NEVER stamp well, even taking the paper to the stamp doesn't always work. I'd give the other one to my Mom. She has macular degeneration and I think that maybe the Misti would allow her to stamp again. She's always been my biggest fan and I love her to pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  117. The Misti has been a blessing to the stamping
    world. So many times I'd have a card finished
    and then stamp the sentiment - and it didn't
    completely stamp. It's so hard to fix that.
    Now I don't have to worry about how I'm going
    to fix a boo-boo.
    thanks for sharing a fantastic card.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I just love watching you work. Congratulations on creating the MISTI and its success, the more I see of it the more I see what an asset it would be and not just another fad.
    While I would love to own one for myself, I would really love to be able to give to my sister, she had a stroke some years ago which left her physically impaired. She was a beautiful crafter painting, knitting, crochet and since the stroke she struggles to pick up a pen. I introduced her to stamping and she discovered that the stamp did most of the work though she still struggles to grasp some stamps and the Misti would be such a blessing and would do wonders for her self esteem.
    I am thankful that God was not ready to take my sister home and that she has regained her independence. I am also grateful that there are generous people like yourself in this worl helping it to be a better place.
    Happy thanksgiving to you and your family, enjoy each other and love oneanother ❤️🌻

  125. This card is just gorgeous! It may have taken a long time to make, but it is so worth the time and effort, as it turned out so beautiful. Love the idea of using the "empty" ink pad for cleaner and the idea of selective stamping is genius. Thanks for sharing all of this with us and for the MISTI on a whole. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tool, don't know what I'd do without it now.

  139. Your card is gorgeous and thank YOU for sharing your MISTI with the papercrafting community. Stamping has become so much easier, especially for those of us with shaky hands, diminishing eyesight, and less strength to get the image stamped right the first time. Two years ago I gifted my sweet sweet mother with one and my dear older friend with another. The joy I see in their eyes that they can still do their favorite hobby - it just gladdens my heart. I am thankful for my sister and would love to gift her with a MISTI as well. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    Thank you so much!

  142. I have been a stamper/card maker for over 17 years and have seen many new products over that time. I remember when clear stamps came on the market, many said that they would be the death of the craft. I am grateful to everyone that has created a new product. I love my misti, I don't know how I manage before, I do know that there was a lot of wasted images before I got it right. I am even thinking of taking those old rubber wood mount stamps off the wood and trying them in the misti. Thankyou Maryann

    ReplyDelete
  143. Your card is awesome.
    I had given up with stamping : I could never get a good stamping. Now, thanks to the Misti, re-stamping is no problem anymore ! And there are so many other advantage to have a Misti (in fact, it's even better to have two or three of them... ).
    Thank to your creation, stamping became my favorite technic for my cards.
    I know already which of my friend will get a fabulous surprise if I'm the lucky one, she will be delighted !

  144. This is such a cool card! Love those fab doodles embossed and colored so delightfully! I am VERY thankful for my MISTI as it has saved me countless do-overs that get thrown away for not matching up!! I'd love to be able to gift one to my crafting bestie... thank YOU for the chance!!

  174. Gorgeous card. I love that background stamp. I own a few background stamps but shy away from them because it is so difficult to get a good impression. The Misti is the answer to that! And the ability to create multiples is game changing! Thanks for creating this tool and sharing your talent.

Many great projects! Thanks so much.

  183. Beautiful watercoloring. I love this stamp and wish I'd picked it up during the release. I am thankful for the MISTI because it has brought me back into stamping. I was always frustrated with uncentered, blotchy images so gave up the hobby. The MISTI has brought me back to a hobby I love. Also, the memory MISTI has allowed be to get great stamped images on my scrapbook pages.
