Sometimes I just put post it tape to hold the paper. I always make sure that the paper is in the corner and snug. It only happens to me with pigment ink or versafine.

It happens to me with plain old dye ink.

I guess snugging it into the corner is the only solution. The stamp just has too much surface and grabs the paper. At least if I've been careful when I placed the paper I can get it back into exactly the same spot.

I was just wondering if anyone else had this happen. You'd think that three of those unbelievable magnets would hold anything. But I guess with clears you have to remember that there's a pad between the paper and the magnetic back of the MISTI and it can't hold as tightly.

You can also tape it down with blue painters tape. The other thing I have been using with die cuts that I am stamping on is a used sticky mat from my Silhouette. It works great. You can use a Circuit or other cutting mat as well. I learned about this technique on a YouTube video. Just put it under your paper and it works great!

Some of my clear stamps do that too. I just make some quick tic-marks around each corner of my card, so if it comes up I can easily re-position it.

Glad I'm not the only one who has experienced this. Thanks for all the tips and advice.

Otherwise, I find my MISTI really useful and am glad I bought it. And most of my stamps don't do this suction thing. It's just those few solid clear ones.

You could also try this inexpensive little tool – I plan on using it with my homemade "misti" until I can afford to buy a real one

Amazon.com: Little B 100407 Perfect Positioner, 6-Inch by 12-Inch

Does anyone know how I can tell if I have a laser cut misti or a screened misti?

I think the screen printed MISTIs had a piece of cling vinyl included.

The screen printed has pain on top either pink or black. The laser is clear.

I had this exact same problem with three magnets, clear stamps and Stampin Up dye ink. The paper stuck to the stamp and was lifted right up. The paper is so smooth it just slides out from under the magnets.

I haven't had a lot of time to play with my MISTI, but I think I will have to align the paper in the corner all the time.

I also found that even for stamps that didn't grab the paper, there was a very slight shift in where the image was stamped. It's not noticeable from a foot or two away, but if you look at the image closely, you can see the overlap.

So, no, you are not the only one.

When I have more time, I'll continue to experiment.

This also happens to me with some of the newer clear stamps from various companies. When I have a super-sticky set, I wash them with warm soap and water, dry them, and then I use a soft white eraser to remove any remaining stickiness.

I also use 4 magnets and always push my paper down into the corner and if not possible, then I also draw some marks to make sure I can replace the paper back exactly. I only use artist tape when I'm stamping on super thin paper like tissue paper or gift wrap.

Yes - all photopolymer - that's why I just tuck my card in the corner each time - are you doing something where you're not putting the card in the corner?

Sometimes I am not careful to get it right in there, up against both sides. But I will be in future.

A combination of a sticky mat and magnets really works well for me. I have a repositionable spray on a cut-to-size quilting mat. I have had some of my stamps pulling up lately, but that is just a sign to me that it is time to reapply the spray. The best thing about the mat is that you can place your cardstock anywhere that you like. This works great for things that are not square, or that don't fit into the corner easily.

Does the sticky mat leave any residue? It wouldn't matter if its just a layer you're stamping on but if I put a card base in there I wouldnt want any residue on the back of my card.

No it doesn't leave residue. If you are using a brand new mat... To keep it from being too sticky lay a clean tee shirt on it mat and then remove it. It keeps the mat from really pulling on your paper.

The spray I use is Krylon brand and it doesn't leave any residue, either.

Years ago I bought a bunch of large background stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms. Just found them and tried to use them in the Misti but they are too high and even stamping them 8-9 times I still don't get full coverage. If I put them face down on my desk, ink them up and cover with cardstock and use a brayer I get very good coverage but I'm so disappointed that I can't use them with the Misti. Has anyone else had problems with cling stamps being too high to work with the Misti? I did remove the foam pad but they are just too tall to get good coverage.

Are you removing the black foam from the MISTI before you stamp? That's how you use it with cling - you would want to leave it in for photopolymer

Lydia, yes I removed the black foam from the Misti. I've used the Misti with many other cling stamps and have had no problem with them, only with the large background stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms. I've had the Misti for quite a while and use it with both cling and photopolymer and have had very good results with all except the Cornish Heritage Farms stamps which are thicker than my other cling stamps.

I have some red rubber stamps that I unmounted and left the original foam plus I added the thin black foam that is designed to mount to the original foam. This makes the entire stamp really high and I can still get a good image with the MISTI. Considering that you use a brayer which means you roll over the stamp giving even pressure it makes me think that you have to do the same kind of even pressure with the MISTI.

To determine if it's the stamp, it could be uneven, try stamping using a large block and see if the uneven image is the same place as when you use the MISTI. If it's in the same place, that tells me it's the stamp and no matter what you use, you have to apply more pressure in the lower places of the stamp.

How bizarre! I've never seen one - is it just the cling foam that's thicker? you could buy the thinner EZ mount and just re-foam it if it is.

Did you try laying the stamp face up in the bed of the MISTI and putting the cardstock on the lid with poster tape? It might work that way...

I also use poster tape to attach cardstock to the foam if the magnets aren't doing the job - keeps it from shifting when the photopolymer stamps want to carry it off...

I just received my MISTI last week and am very impressed with it. I also have two of the Fiskars small Stamp Presses and two Stamp-a-ma-jigs. (Because I "lost" my first Stamp Press and a travel SAMJ.) I find the MISTI works so much easier with less steps involved. It SO easy to make multiples of cards with exact placement for all. This really motivates me to dig out the two-step stamp sets, etc.

Sue, I'm going to try this tomorrow. It's not just one stamp - I bought 6 different background stamps at the same time and have trouble with all of them, some much worse than others but none of them gave full coverage in the Misti after after 4-5 inkings with Versafine.

So if you hold the foam from the MISTI next to the foam of the cling stamp, how much thicker is it? 2, 3 times as thick?

You might need to unmount them completely and then either replace the foam or use them unmounted

DianeinSparks -

I say this from having learned it the hard way - there is no tool that does everything well with every stamp. I went through this on the Scan N Cut forum, where some people were expecting their Scan N Cut machines to be able to fussy cut every single stamp they owned and then empty the dishwasher and fold the laundry.

You say you are able to get a good result turning these stamps upside down and pressing the card stock onto the paper with your fingers or a brayer. Okay, so do it that way. I didn't buy my MISTI thinking I would use it with every stamp I own, and although Sue has figured out a clever way to use hers with BG stamps, today I used four BG stamps in a project and didn't pull out my MISTI for them, I just flipped them and put the card stock on top because it works out just fine and so why not. I do have stamps that, now that I have a MISTI, I can get a much cleaner impression of, and for that I am delighted. I have things I can do with my MISTI that I could only do with a lot of work using my Stamp A Ma Jig and for that I am delighted. I love my MISTI but I accept that it won't do everything.

Just saying - I think your need to use these stamps with the MISTI is causing you unnecessary aggravation. You are able to get reasonable results without it. Just don't use your MISTI with these BG stamps! !

Well now, you're just making too much sense Next time I'm frustrated with a tool, I will remind myself of this...

Rachelrose, I don't need to use these stamps with the MISTI but would use them more often if I could. It's not causing me aggravation but just wondering why these stamps would not work in the MISTI since all the other cling stamps I have do. I rarely use any large stamps, wood mounted or cling since they are difficult for me to handle with my arthritic hands and hoped I could use these large stamps with the MISTI which would be easier than using a brayer for me. I do love the MISTI and use it all the time.

Oh, so sorry to have misread the situation!

Maybe the My Sweet Petunia lady will weigh in, I've seen her post on the forum before. Or you could contact her.

I think Lydia's suggestion to remove the cling and use them bare might work. Although removing the cling is sometimes a big hassle, especially on a large stamp.

I agree - the only way I will use BG stamps now is with the MISTI. So is it the cling foam that is thicker than other stamps? Or the rubber itself? I'm dying to know what the difference is.

Don't die Lydia, we need you around here!! But if you do die, can I have your MISTI? hehehe

Actually, only two more weeks *knock on wood* till Iliana's new stock of laser etched MISTIs come in, and mine is in that batch!

So... what I should request from your craft room if you do die from not knowing, hmm? That would be an interesting thread in and of itself: "What would you like to inherit from Lydia's craft room?" LOL

Background stamp. Any large stamp designed to be used as a background. Lots of different brands.
