MISTI is a great tool for consistent stamping. There is a piece of black foam on the inside to use with clear stamps.
To use MISTI with cling stamps remove the black foam piece.
You can use the tool facing you or turned to the side--whichever works best for you. In the video I turned it to the side so it would fit better on my desk for the video.
For the first card I am using the CR-02187 Multi-Step Lilac Bouquet stamp set. Open the MISTI and place your cardstock in the corner. *This is important to make sure your paper is always lined up in the corner. Place the clear stamp on your paper where you would like to stamp it. Close the lid on the MISTI and the stamp will cling to the lid. (I recommend pushing on the lid to make sure the entire stamp has adhered to the plastic grid).
Open the lid and apply ink to the stamp and close the lid and press on it.
Remove the stamp and clean the stamp and any ink that may have gotten on the grid. Line up the second lilac stamp on top of the stamped image. (as seen in the video). Close the lid on the MISTI so the stamp will cling to it. Ink the stamp and close the lid for perfect placement stamping.
Remove the stamp. Line up the second lilac stamp on top of the stamped image. Close the lid on the MISTI so the stamp will cling to it. Ink the stamp and close the lid for perfect placement stamping.
See how beautifully aligned that stamps are....
I just keep repeating the process with the multi-stamps as I build up the layers to the images. Remove the stamp.
Here is a closeup of my card in progress.
The key to getting perfect placement with the MISTI tool is to always make sure your cardstock is lined up in the corner. Also, if you like to make multiple cards with the same design just leave the stamps in place and stamp as many times as needed and then move on to the next stamp. You will be able to create a stack of cards in no time!
Here you can see some of the glittery areas of my butterfly and lilacs.
Next I want to show you how easy it is to use our JustRite Background Cling Stamps with the Misti. Simply remove the black foam from the Misti. I placed the background stamp face down inside of the MISTI tool.
Close the lid and press down so the stamp will cling on the inside. Open the MISTI and place a piece of paper inside. Ink up the background stamp and close the lid.
I used one of the stamps from the CR-02141 Sentimental Damask Vintage Labels Eight Clear Stamps for the sentiment. The MISTI tool is perfect for helping you line up sentiments too!
Here is a close up of the card.
