MISTI MAY-NIA! Day 26

instagram MISTI Maynia

 

I guess you must all know by now but the AMAZINGLY generous peeps over at My Sweet Petunia (let by the fabulous Iliana) are giving away… wait for it … a FREE MINI MISTI EVERY DAY IN MAY!!!  I am chuffed to be joining in the fun and helping them get the word out about this astonishing tool.  I have 2 MISTI’s and hoping to add the Mini to my collection very soon!  I use it every time I craft and can barely remember how I managed without it  (I like to call those the BM days – Before Misti, lol!!).

The MISTI makes so many things easier when you’re stamping – I love to use it to get the perfect, crisp image or to create multiple images super quick and easy.  Another technique that is so easy when  you have a MISTI is multi-coloured or selective stamping.  I have a couple of cards below using one of my brand new designs from Avery Elle (released and available today!!) called Butterflies.  I stamped the the images in one shade and then inked up the stamps in a darker shade and removed the ink from the middle so it only stamps the darker colour at the edges.  I also was able to achieve the perfect placement of my sentiments (from another amazing brand new set called Big Greetings from Avery Elle) which I double stamped to get a gorgeous, flawless impression (Happy Sigh!!)

  19. Allison Sheppard says:

    I love your butterfly cards – and I would love to try this technique with the MISTI! My favorite stamping techniques are two: I like to stamp with MFT hybrid ink, then watercolor or – stamp and emboss with white ink/white embossing powder, then watercolor. I’m still doing the Ellen Hutson Mondo Hydrangea over and over – so beautiful!! Thanks for sharing your work with us!

  20. Suzanne E says:

    Hmmm…eve after 10+ years of stamping I don’t have a favorite technique. I like having many different ones to do and try. It keeps things more interesting that way.

  21. Andrea D. says:

    That are gorgeous butterfly cards you made.
    Thank you very muche for the chance to win a Mini Misti.
    I would love to win one.

  23. I love heat embossing. I’d really like to win the MINI MISTI! Thanks!!

  24. Sarah JS says:

    I seem to be a bit partial to emboss resist technique, with blended distress or other die ink over the top. Beautiful butterflies. Thanks for the inspiration.

  25. Berina Febin says:

    Wow!! Such beautiful cards!! Love the butterfly!! The colors in both are awesome!

  26. Judy Morita says:

    Copics, for sure. Lovely cards!

  27. Jane Sirak says:

    Up until recently ( and after I discovered clear E P). I would have said embossing…
    But now it is a tie with water color.

  28. Maria Wicks says:

    OMG I LOVE those butterflies!!! Your cards are stunning. I definitely need to get that butterfly stamp set. My favorite techniques are embossing and alcohol marker coloring, which I just recently got into and am loving it already. Thank you for the opportunity to win the mini misti, I have been dying to try one. And it would make things so much easier, especially since I like to stamp a second time over an image after I color it, just to intensify the lines, so the misti would be a life saver for that.

  29. Keti's Projects says:

    Lovely card. I like water colouring very much and embossing resist too. I admire Mini Misty all month, so thanks for a chance.

  30. tina z. says:

  38. I am soooo hoping to win that MISTI. I would love to make stamping easier and not mess up so much!! My favorite stamping technique is embossing. It is so pretty.

  39. Sabrinna says:

    Love the butterflies! AND my favorite technique so far are embossing the images then either doing an ink blending or watercolor resist on top!

  40. Norma says:

    Hi. I love your butterflies. I don’t feel real skilled in many techniques but I love to sprinkle water on reactive ink. It makes me smile every time.

  41. Deepa Lakshman says:

    I love to dry emboss on my cards and heat emboss images before I watercolor them. Your butterfly cards are so pretty.

  42. DebbieC says:

    Very pretty cards. My favorite stamping technique is masking.
    I am still trying my hand at copic coloring.

  43. jennifer L. says:

    My favorite technique is embossing, I’m not very good at it yet since I’m still fairly new at card making but it is so much fun I can’t wait to get more embossing powders. Thank you for a chance to win this amazing tool I would love to win one and start playing!!

  44. Helen LeBrett says:

    I love die cutting: such a wonderful way to add dimension to my cards! Thanks for hosting this give away!! :-)

  45. I love butterflies! both cards are very pretty. Thanks for the chance to win a Misti;)

  46. Maria Murakami says:

    Both your cards are so beautiful, I love butterflies. My favorite stamping technique right now is double or triple layer stamping. I love the effects of the different colors blending together to create a beautiful image. Would love to win a Mini Misti and make lots more cards using this technique. The Mini Misti would make the layering so much more easier. Thank you for the chance on winning one.

  47. Jil L says:

    My favorite technique is water coloring. I try other things, but I always come back to it. You can get so many different looks depending on how much water you apply. There is always something new to learn or another type of watercolor to try. Jil

  48. Courtney McKim says:

    I love your card! I love all techniques (embossing the most) but I am trying to perfect my water coloring :)

  49. Your butterflies are beautiful! How can I choose just one technique? I find that I always do a little of everything on each card I make. I guess if I have to choose just one thing-it would be copic coloring since coloring can really create dimension and depth to a card and colors can vary with each card.

  50. Gabriele says:

    my favorite technique is water coloring. you can color outside the lines, you can wash out the colors plus it always looks artistic and elegant!

  51. Linda says:

    Your butterflies are so pretty. Thank you for this chance to win a mini MISTI.

  52. Sue Geyer says:

    I love your cards. My favorite technique right now is water coloring.

  64. Sharon Gabel says:

    Favorite technique is definitely embossing, especially following that up with watercoloring.

  65. Deb Kerns says:

    I love dry embossing and the texture it adds to a card, I also am crazy about dies and die cutting, especially word dies that add so much to one’s cards. Love what you did with the mini MISTI, wish I had one!!

  66. My favorite card making technique is coloring with copic markers. Never did outgrown my desire for coloring. The new adult coloring craze is giving me lots of opportunities to do this. I have definitely become addicted–to at least buying the books as I now have close to 30 (maybe more, haven’t counted lately) in my collection.

  74. Carolb says:

  82. Shilpi Gupta says:

    Such a nice card. Loved the colors…

  83. Darlene Renshaw says:

    Dear Caryn, My favorite technique is embossing. Though I also love masking. Yes you are correct when you said who wouldn’t want a MISTI! I know I would. When I get caught up in creating time stops for me , however, when you are mass producing some cards this tool really is a time saver. Your butterfly cards are beautiful. I love and have many stamps with butterflies. Thank you:) Darlene

  84. Stephanie Rodgers says:

    So pretty!

  85. Julie Quin says:

    My favourite stamping technique is layering – I love the professional look it gives even though I am not that talented! I love your cards, thanks for the inspiration

    Masking and collage stamping is my favorite stamping technique!

    Love your work. Thanks for sharing. Embossing is my all time favorite technique.

  89. Sherry Rose says:

    Great technique! As far as favorite techniques, I tend to get caught up in one for a while, then another…lol! Currently, I’m trying to get better with my heat embossing so that my details are crisp and clear.

  90. K. Urschel says:

  93. Nancy Lynn Kenny Monahan says:

    Caryn, your cards are stunning and I love the soft yellow and gray colors you chose! I fairly new to card making but I would have to say that heat embossing amazes me the most. I also find it so helpful to use this technique when watercoloring because it helps keep the color inside the image, which is very helpful for a beginner.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win a MISTI AND for sharing your beautiful cards with us!

  94. Bernadette says:

    I don’t have a favorite stamping technique because I’m still a novice even though I’ve known about stamping cards for a very long time. I guess it’s because I can’t sit often enough to make cards. Thanks for the opportunity to win the mini MISTI!

  95. Kay Burkinshaw says:

    Hi Caryn

    Just found your blog really like your style, thanks for chance to win!

  176. Marianne says:

    Such pretty cards. I’m still trying to find my own creative comfort zone and signature style, but I have been collecting more ink pads and am trying to become more comfortable using them. I do love heat embossing though. Seeing the powder turn into something glossy and pretty always amazes me.

  177. Kim Potts says:

  180. Bonnie says:

    I really like butterflies so your cards are especially stunning to me. My favorite technique would have to be layering, either by coloring to create dimension or by using multiple papers stacked on each other to create depth that way. Happy Creating to you!

    My favorite technique is coloring with copic markers.

  189. Lisa Ann McDonald says:

  195. Debbie Bassett says:

    Ah such beautiful, peaceful cards!! Having a misti is so nice so I bet the mini would be so fun to have for cards! My new found technique I’d using sparkle texture paste on a stencil!! So fun and so easy, you can make a bunch of cards in a short time and then your patience really has to kick in because the cards look so much better if you allow them to dry naturally. But it is so fun anyway!!

    Thank you

  196. Kelly W. says:

    Love your butterfly cards! So pretty and happy!! This Misti tool looks incredible to me. My favorite technique is heat embossing my sentiments and sometimes the images to color.

  203. Lola Goldberg says:

    Those sentiments are gorgeous – before I came to leave a comment, I put that set on my wish list that I keep on Pinterest. Favorite technique would have to be color blending, which I’ve only recently gotten the hang of. Once Ranger came out with the round foam thingies (instead of the rectangular ones), I was off and running and wanted to blend all day! Thanks for the chance at the win.

  204. Karen B says:

  225. Janet Ingraham says:

    Oh my what a question to me. I have only experienced one type of stamping technique is just learning to put different colors right on the stamp. Yes I am fairly new. Thank you for offering MISTI as a prize.

  226. Lindsey-NY says:

  244. Beautiful card!

  245. I have been addicted to watercoloring lately. However, I do enjoy embossing, and would enjoy it even more if it didn’t get messy at all.

  246. Janelle says:

    I’m trying watercoloring. I hope to make such pretty cards as yours!

  247. Lucy Sanders says:

  267. Tine Bødker says:

    Hey,
    I think my favorite technique must be stamping on backgrounds made with distress inks. If you can call that a technique?
    By the way, I just LOVE the color combo white, grey and yellow. Not colors I would have choosen, but when I see it on your card, it just looks so stylish…. I really like it a lot :)
    So now I have my inspiration for my next card, or at least the color combo 😉

  268. Vanessa says:

    Gorgeous cards and I really love the yellow butterflies. Thank you for giving us a chance to win this amazing tool.

  272. Patt H. says:

    Love the gorgeous cards! Butterflies are the epitome of spring to me. My favorite technique would be emboss resist.It is so easy & turns out fabulous results with little effort. Thanks for the chance to win a Misti. Have not tried one yet am thinkin I need one!

    Love your cards and thanks for a chance to win.

  279. Candy B. says:

    My favorite is using Distressed Inks on the stamp and spraying the stamp with water. Old technique but I love the results. Doesn’t have to be perfect. Winning the Mini Misti would really help me double stamp sentiments for a sharper black. Thank you for the chance!

  280. Ann Goepfert says:

    I love your double stamped image. Can’t wait to see if I might be a winner of one of the mini misty’s. Thank you

    Ann

  281. Gorgeous cards. I love embossing and coloring :) Would love to own the mini misti :)

  282. Melissa H says:

    I love embossing and then watercoloring over it… watching the powder melt and then “re-appear” when watercoloring is just mesmerizing!

  283. Kathryn A says:

    My favourite technique is still watercolouring! I hope to get better at it, too. Love your butterflies!!

  284. Dorothy Crosbee says:

    I’ve only been card making for about 9 months, I absolutely love it and I’ve been trying a lot of things so it’s still all new to me and I enjoy everything I’ve tried. I guess I have to say it depends on my mood what I love. Copic markers if I have to choose but I true love everything!

  285. Josiane says:

    My favorite technique is to stamp on patterned paper which adds to the interest and depth. Like how the butterfly die cuts extend beyond the mat.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a mini-misti and have a nice weekend!

  286. Linda W. (ScrappinBari) says:

  290. Deirdre H says:

    What stunning creations Caryn. Wow… thanks for sharing. My favourite is probably first copic colouring but love embossing and masking too! So many techniques, so little time! Thanks for the chance to win a misti.

  291. Isabelle Baudin says:

    I’m a big MISTI’s fan since I discovered the Sweet Petunia web site at the end of last year. As I’m still a novice in card creation, I use my MISTI mostly for heat embossing to help me to use my Touch markers (it’s very difficult to find Copic’s in Switzerland). The MISTI is so helpful to re-stamp the same image when the stamping is not perfect. I’m also learning to use multi layers stamps and my MISTI is again so much help. So of course, a mini MISTI would be the perfect complement to my original one.
    Your cards are very elegant, and playing with the shade of the same color give a great result. I will have to try it.

  292. Karli M says:

    My favorite technique is still heat embossing. It’s like magic 1000 times later! Thanks for the chance to win!

  306. Michele W says:

The technique I would love to try is embossing and watercoloring but there are so many techniques out there that I would love to try, including the one you used on your beautiful butterfly cards. Thanks for the inspiration!

  307. Natalia says:

    Nice colors in those cards!! My favourite technique is embossing, I love the effect!!!

  311. debra says:

    Love your cards,love copic coloring

  312. Joanna Mackintosh says:

    I’d love to say ‘colouring’ but mine looks like a 6-year-old has done it! I guess just plain old stamping is my favourite, can’t go wrong there (usually) and most certainly can’t if I win a Misti 😉

  313. Karan says:

    Beautiful butterflies! Thanks for sharing. I hope a Mini Misti is in my future!
    Blessings!

    Thanks for sharing! My favorite stamping technique would have to embossing, I like the little extra details it gives on the stamped image.

  315. Ashley Null says:

    I love Copic coloring! You can change the theme or mood of so many images just by changing out you color them. It makes it so fun! I also love to color people to look like the recipients of the cards! Just an extra fun personalized touch!

  316. Glorimar Lugo says:

    My favorite is Copic coloring. Your card is lovely!

  317. Lisa Campbell says:

    Beautiful cards! I really love. The look of watercolor on cards. Thanks for a chance to win the mini Misti tool.

  319. Meagan Marshall says:

    I would love to win a mini misti!!

  320. Oliev says:

    Lovely cards! I like embossing:-)

  321. carrie says:

    Love your butterfly cards! That looks like a great stamp set. One of my favorite techniques is to use a die cut, put it on the sticky tape, use the microfine glitter, then color with copics.

  322. Susie Sonnier says:

    I forgot to add my favorite stamping technique….Honestly I’m not sure I have one. I have been trying so many different techniques lately to build my skill set, that I am loving them all.

  323. Susie Sonnier says:

    I love heat embossing, and right now I’m working on watercoloring techniques. Thank you for the chance to win the mini Misti!

  329. Carla says:

    First of all, beautiful cards. I don’t think you can go wrong with butterflies and beautiful script (the butterflies + big script are my Avery Elle new release faves).
    My fave technique at the present time is emboss resist with distress inks on watercolor paper.
    Just recently got back into card making so a lot of stuff is new to me and I’m learning a lot about different techniques and what I prefer doing.

  330. Pamela Carpenter says:

    Forgot to add that my favorite technique is making interactive cards

  331. Meagan W. says:

    Right now ink blending is my go to technique. I love that you can get a soft ethereal look or a bright bold in your face look.

  332. Barbara Martin says:

    Trying new techniques (is that a technique?). I love lots of different techniques – probably heat embossing is my most frequently used.

  333. Lynn Gauthier says:

    Wow…your cards are Gorgeous! The butterflies are so striking!
    My FAVE stamping technique is Ink-to-Stamp with markers. I love coloring the markers and huffing on them and then stamping. So much fun and a great opportunity to use multiple inks on one stamp!
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  334. Mary Holshouser says:

    I love the use of the silver embossing. Hadn’t thought of that but will be
    using the idea. Makes for beautiful reefs and the seahorse really pops.
    I seem to do mostly regular stamping but I do like to emboss and then
    color my stamps. The misti will make that a lot easier and faster.
    thanks for sharing.
    Have a safe and fun holiday weekend.

    • Mary Holshouser says:

      sorry. I got from one post to another and didn’t know it.
      I’ll be posting in the Avery Elle blog hop also.
      the butterflies are beautiful. I’ve just started the step method of
      stamping and it is fun. I’ll be doing a lot more of it in the future.
      So many more stamps are coming out that lend themselves
      to this technique.

    Loving to water color and see what happens to it. Would love to be your Misti winner.

  343. Lucy Sanders says:

    Hmmmm. Wonder what happened to my comment? Oh well here it is again. I like to heat emboss as it raises the card to the next level. I like your card as butterflies are my favourite stamps. It would be absolutely fantastic to win a Misti as my stamping isn’t the greatest but I keep trying.

  344. Lindsay says:

    I love love the butterfly cards you have made! My favourite stamping technique is embossing!

  349. Lindsay S says:

    Love your card! Such a great idea to get that two-toned effect. My favorite stamping technique right now is using stamps with die cuts – I just got my first die cut machine and am loving the fact that I don’t have to cut out all my stamped images with tiny scissors by hand! Thanks for the chance to win a Mini-Misti too!

  353. Clare McNeal says:

    So love your cards. Its great the way the misty tool makes stamping so much easier

  354. bev p says:

    Right now, I’m just happy to get a good impression. One of my favorite ways to color is to scribble markers (I use the kiddie version) on a piece of acetate and pick it up with a damp paintbrush! It works great on cardstock if your brush is just damp, and you can color tiny images easily.
    Thanks for a beautiful project. Love those butterflies!

  355. Amy A says:

    Stunning card with gorgeous details. I’m really into watercoloring at the moment. :o) Thank you for the chance to win a Mini MISTI too. :o)

  362. Dawne Smith says:

    My favourite stamping technique changes from time to time. Right now I’m really into watercolored panels so a resist with either embossing or masking fluid is my current fave. My 2 go-to techniques will probably always be my distress inks and Copics.

    So generous of My Sweet Petunia to host this Maynia! Love your cards. Butterflies are so perfect this time of year.

  363. Manisha Sharma says:

    Hello! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards! They’re adorable!

    My favorite technique is heat embossing an outline image, and water coloring it to achieve a soft, “MISTI” effect! … pun intended! :) I also love 2 step and 3 step stamping to achieve a complex hand-colored look that makes the images look so realistic!

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win a mini MISTI!!! It’s a must-have in my opinion!

    LOVE the dimension you get with the double stamping!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your INKY INSPIRATION :)

  408. Suz Rose says:

    Goodness, beautiful cards! Loving the double stamping with various inks :) My current fave stamping technique is heat embossing some images and then watercolouring them. As someone who fails at painting, drawing and anything similar, I find it so fun and easy as it (almost) always stays in the lines hehe. It’s also given me another way to entertain the local kids who always want to come and do crafts.

I adore clean and simple cards, so I want the images to really take center stage. Thank you for sharing your techniques and the opportunity to win a Mini MISTI.

  441. Ruth Cooper says:

    Beautiful cards! Gosh my techniques vary so much depending on projects. I would have to say adding dimension/texture by adding embossing & embellishments to my stamping.

  446. Vicki says:

    Beautiful cards.

    If I have the time I like to colour – sometimes water colour sometimes markers (either water or alcohol based). If I’m short on time it is a quick easy stamping that I go for.

  449. Tricia says:

    My favorite method of cardmaking right now is watercoloring. I am practicing to give my images some dimension. That type of artistry does not come naturally to me but I want so much to be able to make a hand painted card that will be worthy of sharing with someone. Practice, practice, practice.

  454. Yvonne says:

    I love embossing and then doing a simple watercolor wash over the embossed image! It is quick and the results always look amazing.

    Your butterflies are beautiful! My favorite technique now is watercoloring stamped images and backgrounds, but I really love embossed images as well.

  456. JoAnneR says:

    Those cards are both awesome and have a completely different look even though the sentiment font and the butterflies are the same. The different color butterflies give them an entirely new look. Love this. My favorite technique is embossing.

  460. Valerie Jones says:

    Oh my goodness! I am not even sure where to begin to choose my favorite thing about stamping and making cards! I have been doing this for 27 years, and made cards before the stamping. I deary love the coloring, no matter what the media. And layering adds a lot of sophistication to the images. Thanks for an opportunity to win a MISTI. This give away has been a good way to find new artists.

  461. yiho lee says:

    thanks for sharing your simple design yet colourful and lovely card!
    I like heat embossing as it adds texture to any card/project and making them come alive. its such a clever and amazing technique!

  462. Laura Joyce says:

    I recently received some Zig Real Brush Watercolor Markers and have been having a blast using them to watercolor my stamped images. I have watercolored over both Memento ink and embossed images. I’m going to be taking Sandy Allnock’s online copic coloring series, so I expect to start doing some copic coloring soon! And I so want to try the layered flower stamps from Altenew. I’m making cards and bookmarks for my daughter’s special needs school, so I can make LOTS and not worry about creating a huge box of cards that will never be used!

  463. Lindy says:

    I hope butterflies never go out of style. I’m starting to get tempted into ‘no-line’ stamping/colouring. I’ve seen some lovely work. Thanks for the opportunity

  487. Mabel says:

    My favorite stamping technique is embossing!!! Embossing alone on a colored card base or with colored embossing powder on white card gives a clean, elegant feel to the card while other coloring techniques such as watercoloring, Copic coloring and using distress ink as backgrounds or to colour in images can help supplement them. So embossing forms the basis of almost all of my cards…. Love it!!!

  616. Carol says:

    I love all techniques when it comes to stamping, but what sold me the most and first was the moment I saw the ink start to shine with heat embossing and it rose up off the paper, looking and feeling so fantastic. That had to be in the 80’s? I’ve been stamping ever since and still love to emboss! And now I’m loving what the MISTI does for stamping. I just wish I had the Mini

    Because I don’t have a cool misti yet, I like to use the old time method of acrylic blocks the color in with water color.

  635. I don’t think I have one favourite technique when it goes to stamping and creating cards, I go through different phases. Recently, I black heat emboss all images and then watercolor them using my distress inks! :-) before that, it was all about copic colouring…
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  636. Deborah H. says:

    Love the butterflies. My favorite technique is embossing. It would be wonderful to have a Misti to help with stamping.

  637. Judy Crane says:

    Caryn, I liked your butterflies with 2 shades of color. I will definitely try that technique when I get a misti! Last night I was making a card for a friend and I needed to stamp on a hexagon and more than once part of it did not print – I thought to myself, I need a misti (which I never had even heard about until earlier this month) and I could stamp over what I already had and it would be fine (I tried doing it anyway and needless to say I didn’t get the stamp in the correct spot and had to discard it). So now my favorite technique is embossing – it seems to add so much to my cards. Thanks for a chance to win a mini misti!

  638. Craftyfield says:

    Difficult to pick a favorite but one that never fails for me is stamping with Versamark and coloring with chalks/pastel on top.

  639. Yvonne F. says:

    I love that stamp set! I can see how the MISTI would be helpful tool for me! My favourite technique is embossing and emboss resist with a blended background.

  640. Sara Tommy says:

    What great cards and a cool technique! I love to try all kinds of techniques but nine times out of ten, even if they’re not my favorite, I reach for my Copics bc they’re quick and I love the look. Although I rarely do it, my favorite technique would probably be the iron technique. I don’t do it too often bc it takes a lot of time that I don’t always have, but I LOVE the effect! Thanks for the chance to win and for sharing your fab cards!

  641. Nessy says:

    I like colouring. No matter what is being used, marker, watercolor, crayon, I like the surprises of mixing or/and combining color. The world’s a rainbow of color. Lovin’ the tips & techniques I’ve learned through this MISTI hop.

  642. Sue D. says:

    Beautiful cards. I love to see how the same design/layout can be used to make two very different cards just by changing color, background, etc.
    It’s hard to pick a favorite technique. Embossing is an amazing process and adds so much to a card. I like to create my own backgrounds/patterned papers; also enjoy water coloring, either for backgrounds or to color images. TFS your talent and inspiration!

  643. Maggie Marsland says:

    Gorgeous cards! I love emboss resist in white and a blendwd distress ink background. I’d love to win a mini MISTI as it would help me get a good impression on watercolour paper which isn’t always easy. Thanks for the opportunity.

  644. Betsey Woodward says:

    The cards you made are wonderful! I love that stamp set! I can see how the MISTI would be helpful! I Like to use all the stamping techniques! I love trying anything new that I discover. They are all fun to try out and to practice to get better at them.

  645. Ashley Fentress says:

    Lovely card! My favorite techniques are embossing, stamp layering and coloring with colored pencils and blending with alcohol. I don’t use Copics (because they are so expensive), and blending colored pencils with mineral spirits or a colorless blender (safer) is almost just as good! It’s my new favorite thing!!

  646. Jeanne Tipton says:

    Actually, I hated stamping because I never got anything straight so I always had to cut it out with a craft knife. I’ve been appreciating dies because they cut shapes for me.

  647. Lovely cards and great giveaway. I like using Copic markers.

  648. Julie Kenny says:

    Beautiful cards! I love to emboss then watercolour, would absolutely love a mini Misti! Thanks for the chance to win, good luck everyone! X

It almost gives an elegant and classy feel to the project! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  705. Kimberly Gombita says:

    I love your butterflies with the darker edges! So pretty! I haven’t stamped or crafted in general for quite some time. I was just a basic colored ink stamper.

  710. Mischelle Smith says:

Thank you to you and Iliana for a chance to win!

  730. My favorite technique is the “smooching” technique. It comes out different every time and is so easy and quick to accomplish.

  731. Pat from sd says:

    One of my favorite techniques is water coloring. Love the look.

  732. Shirley Swoope says:

    Beautiful cards. My favorite methods to date have been using digital stamps, because I am such a lousy ink stamper. However, with the MISTI, I can see that changing.

  733. My favorite stamping technique is embossing. It’s still a novelty for me, so… still very fun! I would love to do more things– like vellum and shaker cards, Copic and watercolor too. It’s all good!

  734. Susan K says:

    Love your butterfly cards. Thanks for sharing. Thanks to My Sweet Petunia for the wonderful giveaway. I like to use clear heat embossing power over my stamped image. It intensifies the stamped colors. Or provides a great base for coloring with watercolors, pencils or pens.

    Your butterflies are gorgeous! My favorite technique is watercoloring with emboss resist. Thanks for the chance to win a mini MISTI!

  737. Jennifer Petersen says:

    I really love to colour with my blender pens. Colouring is so very relaxing and I like to make a flower come alive. But when I don’t colour I love to use two or three step stamping to create depth. A mini MISTI would sure help with that!!!

  738. Judy K says:

    You’re cards are so elegant. Love the softness of the colors.
    I love to color with pencils of all kinds.. recently discovered inktense pencils, they do take a little practice – but the amazing vibrant water color looks are stunning.

    My favorite technique is the tried and true embossing, it just makes images so much nicer!

I want a MISTI really bad, I am going to have to break down and buy one if I don’t win!

  743. Sue McRae says:

    Love those pretty butterflies! At the moment I think my fave technique is water colouring, though I do love to emboss.

  750. Bobbi says:

    I love to emboss. Your cards are so very beautiful.

  751. Kerry D says:

    I never know how to answer these “favorite” questions. I almost never can choose just one. I guess I will pick using stamps with coordinating dies today. Tomorrow it might be embossing or multi-step stamping or copic coloring or….. etc. I do love my original Misti and would like to add a mini Misti to my arsenal of tools.

  752. Vicki Smith says:

    My favorite is heat embossing the sentiments and color layering floral stamps. Your cards are so pretty and I love your personality!

  753. Sheryl Lemieux says:

    I really like paper piecing and using embossing folders. it seems like I use those techniques most. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards and the chance to win.

  754. Sharon Brand says:

    Love your cards. They show what can be achieved using Misti. Embossing is my go to technique, it just adds something to an image.

  755. Sharon Jaeger says:

    Wow your butterflies turned out amazing! I love the idea of taking away some of the ink on your second impression.
    Recently I have been loving heat embossing and then watercolouring. But now I see that the MISTI would allow great impressions of coloured ink, especially on multi step stamps. I need to try that more! I’d love to win a mini MISTI!

  756. Mascha van Venrooy says:

    Would LOVE to win a mini misti !
    WHAT a brilliant invention !

    Just started stamping. Didn’t want to buy a lot of stamps and lots of inks because I always stamp wrong and can’t get the stamp back on the same position. And it’s an too expensive hobby to just buys lots of stuff and than not to use it.

    When I saw the Misti, I got a lot of hope and … bought a lot of stamps and inks. I tried to make my own Misti tool, haha, it works, but I think your original Misti SO much better ! And I love to win one ! So the stamping finaly will work like a charm.

    I bought a lot of papers with designs, but after buying stamps and inks I found out that I LOVE to make my own designs on white paper to create my own paper.
    So the LARGE Misti is one of the things I would also love to buy for my large papers…
    You can see… the Misti invention changed everything, love to make the design papers myself with stencils and al my new stamps and inks !
    THANX !!

    So my most favorite stamping technique is… making backgrounds for cards, making design paper.

  757. annheidel says:

    My favorite technique is embossing, but I also love to color with Copic markers. I need to branch out a bit and try new techniques! Thanks for the chance to win a Misti Mini.

  758. Marie Fix says:

    I think I emboss more than using any other technique. The one I wish I did more was water coloring my images and feeling like I was good at it. I know practice…practice…practice. A mini Misti would make it all easier. Thanks for the chance to win.

  759. mary nelson says:

    Your cards are beautiful, I love butterflies! My favorite stamping technique is watercoloring and I absolutely love the way Copics look, even though I don’t have any yet!

  767. So very gorgeous! I need these new stamps too! I really like no line coloring as of late.

  780. Kitty Groth says:

    I love the masking look! That’s something I would like to work on….
    I’m a newbie with stamps and have been looking at the mini Misti to make me a successful stamper! Hopefully!!

    ink them with.
    Carla from Utah

  783. Love your cards…pleasing to my eyes. I’m trying to watercolor but that’s not going great. But I’ll keep practicing until I like it or determine it’s not for me.

    Fabulous cards as always!!! My favorite technique at the moment is watercoloring. I do change quite often depending on my mood but my go to technique is watercoloring because it’s very forgiving

    Lovely cards! I love those beautiful butterflies and the dimension!
    My favorite stamping technique is embossing. I love the crisp look it gives an image and all the color possibilities available in different powders!

    Gorgeous cards, i love using my misti for layering stamping the best, I would never be able to do this without the misiti, as I have Osteoarthritis in both hands. I like the misti because if I don’t get a good impression the first time I can just re-ink.

    My favourite is water colouring, even though I really tank at it but I’m learning. Second would be heat embossing which changes the look of a card instantly. Love the colours on your card…so fresh looking!

    Hi. I am Karen from Junee in Australia and I love embossing and re embossing. To me and my students the moment the powder turns into the colour is just pure magic and we could just watch and watch again. I don’t currently have a misti but a mini one could sure start something over here
