My MISTI & accessories have been getting a workout lately! I am getting a head start on the holiday rush, let me share what I have been up to!  

First, I love using the MISTI to watercolor stamped images.  For me, it's the only way to watercolor a stamp; the textured paper requires multiple stampings in order to get a full impression.  I always keep the image stamp in an Original MISTI until the project is completed.  After all the layers are glued to the card base I place the card in my MINI MISTI to stamp the sentiment.  Have you ever stamped your sentiment and then glued your layers onto the card base, only to realize that you glued your layer on a bit crooked?  Me too!  Stamping the sentiment AFTER the layers are all in place helps ensure the sentiment is on straight.  

For my next card, I created my own designer paper by stamping images randomly on a piece of cardstock.  I placed the cardstock on a Sticky Mat in the middle of the MISTI.  The Sticky Mat held the layer fast so that I could stamp all over and past the edges of the cardstock with perfect alignment.   

Lastly, and maybe my favorite card is this one!  I placed the adorable kitty image in the middle of the MISTI lid and stamped it.  Then I moved the paper until the wall lines on the image met.  I had a smile on my face the entire time, it was such a hoot to create!  My own two cats inspired the design.  Rocket (Rocky) definitely regrets nothing as he leads his quiet brother into mischief!

Thanks so much for taking a look at the amazing way the MISTI & tools make creating a breeze!
