Vintage Style Gift Tags and MISTI Stamping Tool

Good evening folks....  hope everyone had a good weekend.  Mother Nature has lost her mind.  It was 70 degrees on Christmas Day and snow last night and it is April.  Go figure.  But I didn't let that spoil my weekend.  I got a package yesterday.....  I received the MISTI stamping tool....  The Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented.  This gadget is AWESOME!!!!   I love it.

I have struggled with getting my sentiments straight, incomplete stamping and hard to do mass producing. This new toy of mine corrects all of that and makes layering stamped images a snap.

I will probably do a video using this neat thing.  Well, actually, most of my future card making videos I will probably be using it.

I made some gift tags last night but did not record it.  I wanted to get a feel for the tool before going on film with it.

These are the tags I made last night.  I spent hours watching YouTube videos of reviews and other stampers using it.

What I did with these cuties are first I die cut the tags using my Big Shot and Tim Holtz Tiny Tabs and Tags Big Z die.  Then I took Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Walnut Stain, with the blending tool and colored the tags.  They started out a pale yellow color.

Then came time to use my MISTI.  I used Blossoming Expressions Stamp Set.  It is a layered stamp set that has 3 kinds of flowers and a set of leaves.  These stamps you layer them.  Each flower and leaf has a background layer and a top layer to add more detail.  This is where the Misti came in handy.  I used the same color for both layers.  But the bottom layer was a second generation stamping so that it would be lighter than the top layer.  Did the same for the leaves.

The sentiment came from our I Do stamp set.  This set is geared towards weddings but the Celebrating sentiment can be used for so many other occasions.

The inks used were Sorbet, Pomegranate, and black archival ink.
