Default January 2022 MISTI Monday Challenge

Challenge Title: In Appreciation of MISTI.
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP53

Date: January 3, 2022

Hello everyone! Happy New Year! Thank you for stopping by to take a look at the challenge.

With the death of my dad right before Christmas, I was shown so much love from my family and friends during that time. I really came to appreciate, even more than usual, the blessings in my life that each person brings. Reading through the December challenge, I saw the conversation regarding the generous challenge prize, given month after month. I was struck, again, by the thought of how the MISTI has changed my life in many meaningful ways. Some days I cannot quit thinking of the genius Iliana brought to us, and then sometimes I think I take it for granted. My MISTIS sit all around my craft room and are always within arm's reach. I enjoy my crafting so much more since this pink tool came into my life.

This month, I want to issue you a challenge for thankfulness....to Iliana, of My Sweet Petunia.

Please create a card using pink (My Sweet Petunia's signature color) and express your gratitude for your MISTI, or other tool you use from her site, in the challenge comments. If you don't have a MISTI, thank her for having this challenge month after month. Her generosity knows no bounds.

I used my new Pinkfresh stamps, stencils and dies (my daughter got them for me for Christmas) to create my pink card. I used my MISTI to stamp the black outline first (left the stamp in the MISTI), blended the oxide inks in the with stencils...then put my paper back in the MISTI again to darken those black lines that faded with the ink blending. Without the MISTI, this card would not be possible.



I hope you all participate for this pretty, pink challenge!

Happy January!

MISTI Monday

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. All MISTI Monday Challenge Entries must be uploaded to your member gallery, with the specific challenge keyword, no later than Tuesday, January 31st, at Midnight, Central Time to be eligible to win a $50 gift certificate to the My Sweet Petunia store!

2. You may combine this challenge with other challenges, and also have multiple entries. Please use a full description on either how you used your MISTI or, if you don't own a MISTI, how you would have loved to incorporate its help!

3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when
uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

I’m so sorry for your loss. We’re nearing the anniversary of losing my dad. It’s a life changing event I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

Ive uploaded my card. I’ll try and paste here…

I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad. Gentle hugs

Iliana and the MISTI are the reason I am still stamping. I felt like I had more control once that pretty pink tool showed up on my desk, lol. I had reached the point where all I did was waste paper and it just wasn't fun anymore. Enter MISTI !!! It's all good now.

I too echo the positive comments of have more than one MISTI on my desk and grabbing it for almost every single card I make.

I am sending hugs and prayers to you for your loss.

Here is my card I made for this challenge...and I am not going to admit to how many MISTI's I have in my possession nor how many I have given away! I continue to unmount wood stamps as I want to use them so I can happily use them in the MISTI.

Here is my card. MSP53 Pixie pink thank you by stampandweave at Splitcoaststampers. It seemed very appropriate to make this a thank-you card. Thank you to MISTI Monday for doing the challenge and providing the prize all these years. Thank you to Iliana for a wonderful product and for taking over providing the prize. Both of you are very generous.

Now that you have the fabulous MISTI, do you find you have any use for your old acrylic blocks?

I use mine sometimes. I have even stamped with a small block on my MISTI. Small stamps are sometimes easier to use with the block, like faces on a critter.

I use mine for watercolor inking as well as a weight for holding glued items while drying! I do not use them to stamp images! Love my MISTIs for stamping and aligning...and today using the T-ruler was a bonus....just saying'

Wasn't my plan but I used pink again so am posting another card for this challenge. Would have wasted multiple pieces of cardstock had I not had the MISTI for this card!

Thank you for your replies. Now, I have more questions. Do you unmount most of your stamps for use in the MISTI or do you prefer to leave them mounted on wood blocks and what are your reasons for whatever you do?

Thank you for your input.

(Should I be asking this somewhere other than this challenge thread?)

I would think the general stamping threads would be a better fit for this question. Here is a link to one that is similar: Question regarding unmounting stamp onto cling mount by lesliespringer at Splitcoaststampers

Another: Take stamps off of the blocks or not? by maslex at Splitcoaststampers

Not the Misti signature bright pink, instead I went with a pale pink on my card. I love Love LOVE my Misti/s, which allow me to get a good image every single time, since I can repeat stamping until I do. A real game-changer for this rubber stamper.

You'll find my card in the gallery - There's More Than One Pink by Forest Ranger at Splitcoaststampers.

It's also on my blog - HERE.

I have another card, though not the signature pink. It is in the pink family. I had to use the MISTI to really get this image stamped. I stamped it twice before heat embossing.
