SplitcoastStampers is featuring the MISTI Creative Corners in today's newsletter. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to receive and test this great new product ... and share my review.
I won't lie ... I've never been much of a a precision stamper. I just pretty much just eyeball everything and move on. However, that also means that historically I have avoided techniques that required precision because after throwing away 3 or 4 tries, I'm usually done.
So the first thing I wanted to try was shadowing a sentiment. I love off-setting die cuts, so I wanted to see if I could do the same with stamping. I chose a big bold sentiment from CAS-ual Friday's Bravo and Emerald Envy and Lemon Lime Ink. The creative corners make it super-easy to move your paper just the right amount to get the shadow you're hoping for (and being able to stamp it multiple times with the MISTI meant I got perfect coverage).
I love how it turned out. I finished by adding a fun Thumbs-Up from Impression Obsession's Hand Set Die Cuts.
I was feeling pretty confident at this point, so I moved on to layered stamping using the new Layering Poppy from Hero Arts and the Coordinating Ink Cubes. The Creative Corners made it easy to stamp off the edge of my card.
I used this week's CAS(e) This Sketch ... and I couldn't be more thrilled with the end result ... they almost look real.
So go check out the reviews and see what you think.
