Howdy! Goodness it's been way to long since I've posted! So here I am to prove I haven't fallen off of the face of the earth! I have to use electric heat to heat up my craft room which is on the third floor of our house. It can get quite frigid up there and quite costly to heat! So now that it is finally getting warmer out I will be able to craft more which means you'll see me post more!
I decided to participate in the latest Color Throwdown challenge #333.
Guidelines Two stamp set. I figured it would be perfect for stamping my own patterned paper to use for color challenges. However, I found it very difficult to stamp the grid and get it lined up correctly. I also didn't care for the grid being part of the pattern. Misti to the rescue! What is Misti you may ask?! It is a stamping tool that becomes a replacement for acrylic blocks. It helps you line up stamped images so precisely that you can stamp in the same spot twice without any shadow. I can't really describe how amazing this tool is in words...so...here is what it looks like:

And you can see videos of how it works on the inventor's blog here. I have only had the Misti for about a week but I truly believe Iliana is genius! I have always struggled getting stamps on straight especially sentiments. I also don't always get a good impression with my first try but with the Misti it's easy to ink up and restamp in the exact same spot. I could go on and on about this tool. It is amazing! It is expensive but so worth it! I highly recommend purchasing the grid paper and the magnets if you order this though.
