Mirror Stamping

Hi Dahlings 
As Promised Mirror Stamping with the Misti .
At Oyster Stamps we have had made for us a Solid Polymer Stamp to use with the Misti .
Unlike Acetate which slips .
First put your stamp on your paper where you won't it .
Next you turn over the lid ,so it picks up the stamp.
Notice the stamp upside down on the lid ,now ink your stamp and turn the lid down on your paper .
Now you have a stamped image on your paper ,now take your paper of put to one side.
Leave your stamp where it is and place your Polymer stamp on your Misti.
Now ink your stamp then turn lid down onto Polymer and press ,lift lid Repeat again.
Take stamp of ,lift polymer of and place stamped image back on Misti.
Turn the polymer over so the inked image is underneath and place on your card where you have one stamped image .
Then you turn lid down on Polymer and press down .
Hey we have a mirror image :) 
And so on .
Hope this makes sence .
All products from Oyster Stamps .
That's all for now 
Much love Martine xxx

New Toys

Hi Dahlings 
Thank you for popping in today ,I have some great new toys to show you.
Spellbinders Platium Machine ,what can I say about this Machine 
Well I have every Machine there is ,this Machine comes with the small plates ,rubber mat and embossing Plate ,only small plates you say ,well yes so that way it's not so much turning,and we don't always need large plates all the time.
But the Beauty of this Machine you can use all your plates from your Grand Calibur ,embossing plate ,the Rasberry plate for your deep embossing g Folders etc .
It takes all dies that are on the market and embossing folders.
I cannot find a blank spot in this machine it cuts with one pass in the middle of the plates.
When you turn the handle it's so smooth and does not jump or slide around the Table ,unlike some of the other ones on the Market.
It's a beautiful design white with like a Rose gold Handel ,and wrighting .
Marks out of 10 for this Machine is 10 .
Now for the Misti 
Stands for the 
Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented .
Is it I here you say  well yes I think it is.
My Daughter is getting married next July all the invations are done now ,hard work getting them all the same ,but with the Misti they will be identical.(wish I had this a few months ago ) 
You cut your card to the size you won't place it over the grid paper ,put your magnets on your card ,place your stamp on the stamping side ink it up and fold it over and stamp ,and repeat and repeat.
If you don't ink it up enough first time and you don't have a full impression re ink and stamp again and it will go exactly over your first image .
You even coverage every time ,no rocking like a block ,no ink on your card only on your image .
It's great for doing mirror images ,stamps that have Dies ,the list is endless.
Oyster Stamps have them at £49.99 .first shipment gone out 2 nd shipment next Tuesday .
3rd Shipment first week in December .
Do I like the Misti ,no I love the Misti .

Well I hope that helps if you need any more information please email me .
Thank you so much for popping in today .
Have a great weekend.
Much love
