Unity and Misti!

Friday, May 26, 2017

Hello Unity friends! Thanks for joining us today as we hop with



I'm so excited to be sharing some Unity/Misti creations with you today. A super big thank you to My Sweet Petunia!

Using the Misti to stamp was life changing! So many times I went to stamp an image and it came out crooked or there was not enough ink.
Not after the Misti!
The Misti makes precision stamping so easy!


It helps to create cards like this one easy!
I used Versamark and gold embossing powder to make the coloring stand out. With the Misti, I can place my cardstock on the stamping platform and then position the stamp before I ink it up.

One tip I want to share I learned from Jennifer Mcguire is to take the top sheet of your Misti grid paper and laminate it. This makes it easy to wipe away the ink so you can conserve the sheets that come with the Misti and you can also use it for mirror stamping techniques. What's that you say? Yep, I tested it and it works!
