Ever since SU released the clear stamps, there have been complaints about them falling off the acrylic block so I don't know why SU hasn't improved/changed sticker material.
That was what I meant to say, not enough words on my part!

I got mine on Friday (super fast shipping) and it works like advertised. The best thing for me is that when something doesn't stamp cleanly you can stamp over it. But....

I don't like wasting grid paper so I'm going to try laminating a piece of grid paper that I can wipe off and reuse... I'll come back and tell you if that works.

I like that it's bright pink so I can find it on my messy desk and it's a nice size for traveling.

It's great for clear stamps but I'm still working on how to do scenes with red rubber without using my SAMJ.

Yes, you need the magnets to make sure you paper stays in the same place especially if your cardstock isn't butted up against the ruler. To me it's not a big deal since I already had the magnets, but I do think they should be included with the product. I also think that if my laminated grid paper works out, this is also something they could provide.

I need to use this more than a few days to be able to say OMG you need this, because a couple of days of play doesn't mean I found all the gotchas. Today I feel like just being able to stamp in the exact same place when doing a mass production like Christmas cards, invitations, class projects, etc. or when an image doesn't stamp cleanly is worth the money.

Question - what is the black thingy she uses to scrub her stamps?

Stamp happy-

She says the black thingy is a Close to my Heart stamp scrubber. She mentions that she uses baby wipes and they leave lint so she just gives the stamp she is using a few swipes to remove the lint.

Waiting to hear if this tool is really worth the $$$ after you use it more. If it does all she claims, I will invest. Her comment regarding the SU stamps not falling off is what intrigues me the most. Also, the repeat stamping and re-stamping.

Thanks, somehow I missed that in the video. I just ordered one.

I'll be back later in the week with an update as I have to try some of my SU stamps that have the label and I didn't add mono to make them stick.

MITSI Rocks! I played with it this evening and this tool is going to be well used.

Yes, the SU stamps stick. I had to find a set where I hadn't either trimmed the sticker or already added mono but I finally found a set. The stamps stick, no slippage, no dropping off half way to the paper.

Cost savings. You don't need a bunch of mounting blocks. All the paper I've wasted and time I've spent having to start over will be a huge savings.

Do Overs. I have several solid rubber and poly stamps where I just can't get a perfect image. With MITSI you can just re-ink and do it over.

Background stamps. I have several large background stamps that I have never been able to get perfect full coverage and MITSI did it. I've tried several methods and even bought a mega-mount and never have gotten this amount of even coverage. Woo Hoo!

Incredible service. I wrote to Iliana about how to make scene cards and she told me which videos to watch and where in video on how to use the SAMJ sheet. I tried it and it works great for me and I don't have a problem using the sheet.

Straight sentiments. Even with a SAMJ I always have problems stamping my sentiments straight so I always stamp at an angle. Now I can get them perfectly aligned using the MITSI's grid.

Speed. I made a card where I put several stamps on the grid and stamped them all at one time perfectly. Note they were from the same company so the height was the same.

Exact placement of border stamps. I rarely use border stamps because it's a pain to get them aligned. After watching the videos I can see a lot more borders in my future.

I did buy the recommended acrylic cleaner/polish because I want to make sure I don't ruin the lid.

I'm not going to say that you have to get this tool, but I will say that you will love it. It's rare for me to like a tool this much because I can always find something not quite right, but this time I haven't found anything. Sure the SAMJ is cheaper, but if you're honest, it takes a lot of time to align when doing multiple cards and it's extremely difficult to perfectly re-stamp because if you are off a hair, the image is blurry.

Very well said! This is exactly my feelings about MISTI. I'm still exploring different things to do with it but I'm never disappointed.

Her message is below - it doesn't specifically do a scene but helped to understand how to use the SAMJ. I used the SAMJ to figure out where I needed to stamp.
_________________________

Ihave a video called Flower Card. I stamp the background on the grid paperand then center the cardstock. Use a magnet or post it to hold thecardstock down.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1sGdp47iaM

Then watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUxr6ccOHv4 at the 11:45 mark. You can use the SAMJ plastic like that.

This video may help you too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAV1Vc_22jI at the 2 min mark.

I'm not sure what you are asking as the inside measures 6 1/2 x 8 1/2". Do want to stamp something bigger than this?

It doesn't make any difference so long as the card will fit inside the stamping area. I tried one that was a little to big and the lid didn't put a crease in the cardstock that was over the edge. The cardstock was too large because I didn't want to trim a long piece to fit. In most instances you can just fold the card on your score line and it will fit.

A problem could happen if you're stamping a ginormous card that doesn't fit even after folding.

Note that magnets help keep the top of the folded card laying down.

I'm still loving the tool and here are a couple of things I've noticed but I think it's just getting used to doing something different

I keep a stack of scratch paper cut to fit but I'm not using grid paper yet. Have to buy some today but even after getting grid paper I'm going to use cheap printer paper and save the grid paper when I actually need the guidelines. The only difference for me is cutting the paper as now I stamp on SU grid paper.

When inking the stamp, make sure you wipe off any ink on the lid after you stamp. I didn't pay attention and put an ink spot on my card because I closed the lid with the card an no stamp. No different than cleaning your block.

When moving the stamp around for placement, make sure your stamp is really clean before testing the position on the card. I'm a lazy stamp cleaner so this is a little change for me.

Off to play more....

Yeah, I wondered why she didn't do it that way. She definitely had the card hanging out and over the ledge.

Where can I find the recommended cleaner info? TIA!

I am really interested in this tool--if only for making card sets and for Christmas cards. And keeping my sentiments straight!

If I can figure out a way to make multi-part stamping work every time (I'm thinking like WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals-type stuff), I will be so happy!

I used WPlus9's Spring Bloom set today and I used the multi step stamps and MISTI worked great! It is so much easier using this tool!

I got the cleaner today and quite frankly it's not worth the money. Plain old soap an water worked just as well. I say save your $$. Just use a gentle cleaner and soft cloth like you clean your stamp blocks. No harsh chemicals like 409, alcohol, etc. If you aren't sure, search SCS for cleaning stamp blocks for more info.

I did a search on WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals-type stuff and got a ton of different kinds of pics. Could you post a link to something you want to do and I'll see if I can answer you or point you to one of the videos.

You need strong magnets. I tried some weaker ones and they don't work. Search the net for "rare earth" magnets and you get a ton of hits so you can compare prices.

this site has them for $5.56 for 10 and no shipping. MySweetPetunia sells them for $2.00 each and they look to be about the same size. http://www.dx.com/p/super-strong-rar...5#.U-v8aPPn-Ag

I was thinking of Jennifer McGuire's video about Fresh Cut Florals. I can't post a link yet, but I attached a shot from the page with all of the multi-layer flowers and berries that she lined up perfectly on camera, but I always have several discards!

She so casually just stamps perfectly, first on the die-cut (and I saw how to make a template in one of the MISTI videos, very cool), and then she layers the parts of the flowers or branches to finish the image. I usually screw up several attempts before the veins fit on the leaves like they are supposed to! So that's what I hope I can use the MISTI for: lining up the multi-part stamps.

I've attached a pic of another set (The Sweet Life from Papertrey Ink) that I think looks pretty tricky to get just right. It's 3 parts!

Looks like calidreamin has had success with the Wplus9 flower sets. Nice!

River Isis-

I think you are correct about the magnets from Home Depot. The ones she shows are really strong. I thinks she even cautions about getting your fingers pinched.

Default SOLD!

My fourth try at a product promising me I can re-stamp an image EXACTLY where it was before. If all it did was that one thing, it would surely be worth the money.

One thing I don't understand is what's holding the magnets. Do magnets always stick to plexiglass?

Thanks to you gals who "beta-tested" and wrote your findings. I'm buying!

I'm with you on the "re-stamp" issue, I've messed up more sayings, and had to stamp on another piece of paper to glue on top of the "messed" up area. That will happen no more!!!

As for the magnets, it appears that she has a magnetic sheet or piece under the bottom plexi graph piece. I had some strong round magnets in a drawer, similar to what she showed, and they worked perfectly. They were refrigerator magnets I hung on to, now glad I did!!!

Hope that answers your questions.

She mentioned on her blog she's been busy filling orders...... I wonder if you send a request if it will get filled sooner? Just a suggestion.
