Clean & Simple Watercolor Stamping

Hi Everyone! So glad you are joining me today for a special collaboration between Neat & Tangled and My Sweet Petunia!

The MISTI (which stands for Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented) is one of my favorite and most-used tools in my craft room; I use for EVERYTHING I stamp! Today I am going to be showing you how I created this clean and simple watercolored card using my MISTI.

For my card I’ve used some of Neat & Tangled’s newest stamps and dies; So Good to See You and Painted Hello. Both of these sets were part of the January release that just came out a couple weeks ago.

Because I wanted to do no-line watercoloring with my Tim Holtz distress inks, I stamped everything in a light color (Antique Linen). Using a light ink like this will help you achieve that true handpainted feel with your stamps, without actually doing it by hand! :)

    Nina Marie, you have me intrigued now with the Misti. Your scattering of images across the card is a fun echo to the cluster by the hello. Love the watercolor play! So glad you joined us in our Ray of Sunshine challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenges!

  3. D.Ann C says:

    Such pretty watercolors and gorgeous sentiments!

  4. Denise Bryant says:

    Lovely card! Your colors are amazing!

  5. Rosali says:

    That’s a very lovely card! No suprise though, I seem to love EVERY card you make! <3<3

  6. Karen P. says:

    Love this beautiful card. Just discovered your blog and I subscribed for sure. Thanks for the chance to win a MISTI and stamps. Love it!

    Lovely stamping and beautiful card Nina-Marie!!!
    Love your embossed sentiment on the vellum too!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your INKY INSPIRATION and tutorial :)
    My stamping is uneven at the best of times and I usually have a marker on hand to cover the “missed bits”, so to me the MISTI sounds like MAGIC to every stampers ears, being able to double stamp when needed and know that the image will be perfectly aligned, crisp and neat EVERY time. I also have a goal of making multiples of my cards this year, so I’m excited thinking about a little “mass production” on a small scale.

  8. Love your beautiful watercolored card! I LOVE MY MISTI and use it to pretty much stamp everything, especially for sentiment phrases that I seem to add last to my cards. Thanks for a wonderful video!

  9. Lindsey L says:

    Such a beautiful card! I saw it on both sites and had to come here to get another look. :) I love the MISTI for mass production and perfect alignment of stamping on die cuts. It’s fabulous for many more things, but those are the two ways I use it most.

    I love my MISTI! My hands have a slight tremor, which is very frustrating for a stamper. I have had to remake so many cards because of this. Now, I get perfect stamped images because I am not holding the stamp. I can’t thank you enough for inventing MISTI!

  11. Mary-Anne V. says:

    Really pretty card…love how you watercoloured it and created that soft look. I love the fact that you can stamp an image multiple times in the same spot if your first inking didn’t transfer so nicely!

  12. Carla Hundley says:

    Beautiful card, loving
    the flowers. I don’t have
    a MISTI, but I like how
    you can place the stamps
    and get the exact same
    place every time!

  13. Christine M says:

    I love it for multiple impressions. It has totally brought me back to stamping again

  14. So, so pretty! I agree – I use my MISTI for nearly everything. There is nothing better than a super dark (double or even triple) stamped sentiment…..
