I Think I'm Gonna Post Everyday...well almost

Hi Friends,

I have just received the most amazing crafty product on the current market. It's called a MISTI. It's a tool that allows you to place any stamp (unmounted) onto it in order to achieve perfect placement onto your card. Tale a look at my card

I'll bet you're thinking that it took me forever and a few tries before I was able to get this just right.
This card was completed in 10 minutes and half the time was me staring at sentiments and changing my mind. I saw this product demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire on her blog
I went to the store she suggested in her recipe for the card, but they were out-of-stock. I was determined to have one. Amazon didn't even have it and they have everything, right?! I finally tracked it down here My Sweet Petunia  This is the inventor's website. You may consider it a bit pricy at more than $50.00, And you do need to order at least one of the magnets, but this is a tool that will pay for itself quickly.

So my card is a plain white Georgia Pacific white cs base and lots of different Memento dye inks to stamp the images. The clock is the same one I used for my LIM post yesterday (CTMH clock).
The sentiment, a lovely day is from Freckled Fawn (it came in a monthly subscription kit) and the birthday sentiment is from Stampendous set Birthday Wishes. All of the images were clear stamps. That's what I felt most comfortable stamping with to start out with this tool. However, I moved on to rubber stamps later. As long as the stamp is unmounted, you can use this tool. There is a video at the link that is a clear explanation of how to use MISTI.

I was so excited with my results, that I did a challenge search and managed to find two challenge blogs to submit to,  Eureka Stamps. for their 129th challenge which is birthday cards. And,
Lawnscaping is celebrating their 100th challenge. What fun, huh?

And now you have it. I've enabled you and you will be seeing lots more of my cards.
Now go plot  plan how to get one of these into your hands and on your craft desk.

Erica, really nice and simple card. Definitely a card you can mass produce. I see you got your hands on the MISTI. I have been eyeballing it but have not found it thanks for the website. TFS Traci
