MARCH 5th, 2016
MISTI Class with AMANDA FARHANG

Hello fellow crafty people!

When I first saw the MISTI in a Jennifer McGuire video in 2014, I only saw the obvious benefit: stamping a *clean* image, including all those fine line details….

Then I started to get adventurous…
·        Background stamps!
·        Lining up Sentiments!
·        Stamping multiple images at once!
·        Assembly line set up!
·        Shadow stamping!
 
It was all so easy!

But wait! There's more! My MISTI adventures continued!

·        Stamping on die cuts!
·        Masking with multiple images!
·        Mirror image stamping!
·        Multi-step stamping!
·        Mirror Image stamping on die cuts?!?! ---> *BOOM* Mind blown!

And this is just the tip of the iceberg… Crafters all over the world are finding new ways to use their MISTI and I am constantly impressed by the creativity in our crafty community.
The MISTI has made me a better card maker.  I waste less cardstock.  I’m “stretching” my stamps and DIES, and using them in new ways.  This was super important to me because it really emphasizes the value of this incredible tool.  I can do more with less and I am making beautiful things.
At our class on March 5th, we will go over a range of MISTI techniques and then make 2 cards together.

1.      Spinner card

a.      Mirror stamping on die cuts

b.      Lining up sentiments

2.      Flat card

a.      Background stamps

b.      Multi-step stamping

If you have a MISTI already, I encourage you to bring it. If you do not have a MISTI already, you can share one of the MISTI's that the Stamp Fever design team has graciously offered to share with us.

We will be using two of the fabulous new Lawn Fawn sets that were revealed on the Lawn Fawns Blog - CHA Sneak Week 2016 - Day 1!
Fairy Friends 
and Rooting For You .

There will be a few of these available to share during class, but you can also pre-order these sets from Stamp Fever to use in our class!

Things you should bring to class:
- markers or colored pencils
- adhesive
- scissors
- background stamp(s)  (optional- we will have a few to share)

I will post samples of the cards on Instagram  @coloringinprogress  later next month. The samples will also be on display in the Stamp Fever store in Late February!

I look forward to spending a few crafty hours with you!

â¤ï¸ Amanda
