Have you been thinking about getting a MISTI?
It is currently the HOT selling item in the craft industry! 
Crafters everywhere LOVE their MISTI! Everyone is talking about the MISTI...
MISTI is great for precision stamping, layered stamping, die cut stamping, and mass production stamping with cling mount and clear stamps.
The MISTI won the CHA {Craft & Hobby Association} Hot Product Awards for 2016.
We carry the original size MISTI!

What is the MISTI?

This is the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented.
The MISTI is a must-have tool for cardmakers or stampers.
MISTI's simple hinge design provides consistent stamping for the novice or experienced crafter. This tool will accommodate both the red rubber cling mount stamps or clear stamp.
A foam pad is included with your MISTI to raise the cardstock when stamping with clear stamps. Your MISTI will provide a platform for multiple stamp techniques that are impossible with traditional stamp mounts. Use the two included magnets to quickly and easily position your cardstock, and the included grid paper makes it easy for you to layout and align your card's design.
Your MISTI is an investment you will treasure and enjoy, while saving you time and money. Actual stamp area is 6.5"x8.5"
