Wonderwork Wednesday – A Card Set

Hello there.  For Christmas this year I made my Mom and 2 older sisters each a card set.  I will share with you the box that I made to house them on Friday however today I just wanted to show you the process of mass producing.  Every step is done multiple times ( in order to save time).  Most of the time it will look like a bomb went off on your craft desk but I promise you, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  I have been asked about the stamp positioner I use.  It’s called the MISTI (most incredible stamping tool invented) and it’s great for this type of creation.  You can find it at a website called http://www.mysweetpetunia.com.  I am sure that I will get a few questions about the die that I used to cut the card front in a curve.  I have to be honest and say I cannot remember.  I have had it in my stash for years and I honestly don’t know from what company I bought them from.  It’s definitely not Stampin’ Up!.  At the time I made these cards the stamp set was still available for purchase.  However, it has since been removed from the clearance section and is officially retired.  I am sure that another stamp set can be substituted but I do apologize for showing you a retired item.  Anyway, enjoy the show.

    Really liked the curvy bit Susanne. Since I am a terrible stamper I recently bought the WRMK’s precision stamp tool. For newbie card makers like me I would recommend it. No magnets but it works fine with a little bit of washi tape to hold the card in place & the price is reasonable compared to the MISTI.

      Hi Bonnie. I am pleased that you have found what works for you both in budget and as a crafty tool. I personally like the MISTI and feel that it is extremely well made and worth every cent, and also I really loved to support a fellow crafter rather than a big company as I know the story of how and why the MISTI was created. We all have different likes and dislikes and often we find what works for us in the end. The lesson here is to be open minded enough to recognize that we are all different. We have different abilities, opinions, and budgets. What works for one, may not work for another. As I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I rarely make mention of tools that Stampin’ Up! doesn’t sell but many already have a stamp positioner so I thought that it would be ok. As this was a Wednesday video where I usually don’t talk so I felt it was even better. Anyway, I thank you so much for your comment and suggestion and hope that someone out there may gain insight from your words. Thank you so much. Happy New Year.
