Play Misti For Me

 My solo staycation is over for the next 24 hours. The Mister is home to regroup before he returns to his Mom's for the weekend. What we both really need is sleep but I'm too excited to sleep because my  new toy is finally here! It's a Mini Misti stamping tool and it is fabulous.

I can't stamp worth beans and this little doo hickey takes all the worry out of it. You just put your card in it, arrange your stamps where you want them on the card, close door, open the door, ink up the stamp which are now stuck on the door, close the door and voila....if it isn't perfect, you can ink the stamp up and shut the door again and it stamps right on the exact same spot. Brilliant. I love it. It was worth every penny and it cost a lot of pennies.

No more ruining a card you just made when the final stamping goes wrong.

 Speaking of new things, I also picked up this adorable fairy stamp at AC Moore last weekend. I had a lot of fun coloring it with my fancy blending markers.

Here is the last of the May cards from the kit. I am expecting the June kit any minute now. I'm not kidding when I say I am stalking the mailman. I've also got a regular stakeout going on with the mailbox because the 10 card video tutorial is already out on YouTube and I'm itching to get started.

Someone asked in the comments about soaping tutorials and in case you didn't see my reply, Soap Queen TV on YouTube is where you want to start as are the tutorials on her blog. The Soaping 101 videos are also excellent for learning the basics. Be warned: once you figure out your lye supply,  you will be cleaning out your cupboard of kitchen oils before you know it. Saponification is highly addicting.


  1. That is a really cool tool. I try to stamp on paper and attach it to the card because I do make so many mistakes.

  2. Whoa, that stamping tool is SO cool! I can definitely see how it alleviates a lot of multiple item stamping errors! I sanction this purchase! ;) You're really turning out the stationary work. I'm amazed that you are knitting and soap making too! Get some rest and enjoy a little time with the Mister!

  3. Looks like your new toy is a lot of fun.
    Have a good weekend,

  4. The fairies on the mushrooms are so cute!! And I love the sunshine card!! I can see how you would be anxious for the next months kit. Looks like fun stuff.

  5. What a great tool! Good for you! Have a nice regroup before the weekend!

  6. You are incredible...can't keep up! LOL I thank you for the soap making information. I think your card making skills are fabulous!

  7. LOL Love that last line.

    Not for me though. Soap making sounds much like cooking food and I'm all about going out to eat. LOL (I DO cook food though --- I just don't enjoy it very much.)
