How to Use the MISTI Stamping Tool:
To set up your MISTI stamping tool for stamping, first open the lid. If using clear stamps, start by placing the foam pad in the stamping area. (This step is not necessary if using red rubber stamps.) Next, lay the paper grid in place in the MISTI’s stamping area.
Position your paper in the stamping area, and carefully use one or both of the neodymium magnets to secure it in place. Be careful not to get the magnets too close to each other or they can attract together and pinch fingers, causing injury.
To begin stamping, position your stamp on your project in the location that you wish to make your impression, with the cling side up. Close the lid of the MISTI and then open it again. The stamp should now be clinging to the MISTI’s acrylic stamping surface lid.
Ink your stamp and close the lid again. This step creates the stamped impression. Open the lid, and before removing your stamp, be sure to check your image’s quality. If part of the image is missing or faded, ink the stamp again, and close and reopen the MISTI’s lid again. This process can be repeated over and over until you are happy with the impression and color saturation of your stamp.
For layered stamping, repeat the MISTI process with the each additional stamping layer until the image is complete.
When stamping is complete, clean the MISTI thoroughly with an approved cleaner and cleaning technique as described below.
Proper care of the MISTI stamping tool is important.
NOTE: Neodymium magnets are very brittle and very strong magnetically. Keep away from children. Handle magnets with extreme care to avoid personal injury and damage to the magnets. Fingers can be severely pinched between attracting magnets. Magnets can chip and/or break easily and magnets cannot be warrantied, replaced, returned or exchanged.

I had been eyeing this tool for quite awhile before I ordered it as soon as scrapbook.com had it available. I honestly don't know how I got along without it. It's so easy to line up stamps for exact placement. I can't tell you how many times I've thrown out a card because the image didn't stamp clearly the first time around. No more...just ink up the stamp again, stamp and alignment is perfect.
Since I've fallen in love with this product, I'm now in the process of unmounting a lot of my wood block stamps and unless there's a stamp I absolutely have to have, I'm going to try and stick with either cling mounted or clear stamps. The numerous YouTube videos on the Misti have been so helpful.
When I saw the video on utube on how this works I was sold. I knew you could always find a hard to find item on Scrapbook.com. This was so easy to use and it makes for a perfect stamp every single time. Lining words up so they are centered are no more of a challenge with this tool. If part of your stamp doesn't print dark enough you can reink the stamp and do it again because everything lines up perfectly. Got the large size and it is easy to store in my bag for crop night. Everyone at my cropping sites love it and where all going to get one. Hope they got it from scrapbook.com because the pricing on this website is hard to beat.
This stamping tool will take away all your care and worries. You will never have to buy another stamping aid for the rest of your life.This is amazing and allows you to re-stamp images that didn't transfer perfectly and it lines up exactly in the same place as you originally stamped. It allows you to do invitations and have all of them be identical. Just place your paper in the corner and put the magnets down and place your stamp on the paper upside down .Close the lid and it picks up the stamps. Ink them and then re-close the cover and your stamped image is exactly where you want it. i ordered extra magnets so my paper stays in place and never moves . I ordered the large Memory MISTI from My Sweet Petunia, that allows you to do 12x12" scrapbook pages, the ideas are endless. Then I purchased the Origianal MISTI from Scrapbook.com because they had a ten dollar off coupon. This is a great tool so don't hesitate to purchase.
I was a little skeptical when I ordered the Misti up until I used it. I fell in love with the ability to fill in where I may have missed inking, I love how it makes that process of two stage stamping so very simple. I don’t have to worry about having the right sized stamping block and the best thing for me it is a breeze for the children that I work with who have disabilities to use without having to try and manipulate the various sized acrylic blocks. The children enjoy being able to stamp for some it is a new experience. This invention is awesome.
I can't tell you how much paper I have wasted, due to stamps either not having been stamped well due to not being dark enough or not exactly even. Just about every scenario you can think of that wastes paper. Lets face it, good card stock is expensive. This is a blessing! I no longer have to throw away my paper. I can just reink and stamp. It almost eliminates the need for my Stamp a ma jig. Now my stamping is just perfect! It will pay for itself. You will be wondering why the heck you have not bought it sooner!
