MISTI Technique Class

I had the pleasure of taking an awesome class at my local stamp store (Stamp Fever) on Saturday night. It was all about creative ways to use the MISTI stamping tool from My Sweet Petunia.

Amanda & Sharon

The instructor for the class was Amanda Farhang (left) who also happens to be an amazing Copic colorist. If you aren’t following her on Instagram already, you should! Sharon (right) is a member of the design team for the shop and creates absolutely adorable cards! You should probably follow her on Instagram, too. Oh, and while you’re at it, feel free to follow me on Instagram as well if you aren’t already. 🙂

Mel's Card Corner | Rooting for You

To put the techniques we were learning into practice, we made two cards during the class both featuring stamps from the latest release from Lawn Fawn. The first one used the Rooting for You set. The MISTI techniques used for it were layered stamping and stamping on a die cut. I apologize for not having ink color names for you. I don’t remember what they were, but can tell you they were all from Memento.

Mel's Card Corner | Fairy Spinner Card

For the second card, we used the new Fairy Friends stamp set to create a spinner card. The MISTI techniques used for this card were stamping a background and mirror stamping. It doesn’t show in the photo, but we mirror stamped the fairy to create the back side for the spinner then colored  everything in with Copic markers.

I’ve owned my MISTI for about a year. I’m often asked by other crafters whether I think it’s worth the money. For me, it’s a resounding YES because I use it all the time! After learning new techniques in this class, I love it even more now! The techniques we learned work with the full size MISTI as well as the new Mini MISTI.

Since I have a small crafting space, I decided to order the new Mini MISTI. I’ll definitely still use my full-size MISTI when mass producing cards though since I can set up more stamps at the same time with it. For my day-to-day card making though, the Mini MISTI will be a better fit.

Until next time …
