Snowy night

Before I start, has anyone any tips for using old unmounted red rubber stamps in the Misti? They don't cling at all, so when I use them with acrylic blocks I stick them with Pritt and then wash both them and the blocks afterwards. Some of my oldest blocks (about 20 years plus) are getting a bit opaque and I think it's from years and years of Pritt and washing. I don't want to do anything to damage my Misti and yet I have several stamps, like the one I have used for the snow scene here, that would really benefit from the accurate placement and repeated stamping possible with the Misti. Is there any adhesive that I can use that I can be sure won't harm the stamp or the Misti plate?


Anyway, I stamped it once, although as you can see multiple stampings would have been good, and embossed it in opaque white, onto a stitched oval die cut. The sentiment is a magazine freebie stamp and the ribbon a scrap from my stash.

I'm sharing this with

  1. Lovely card, Jane! I use Pritt to stick the stamp to the Misti and make sure I clean thoroughly with a wet wipe or soapy water on a soft cloth. Doesn't seem to have harmed the Misti in any way, shape or form, Jo x

  2. Hi Jane love your card. I use a removable tape runner on mine, doesn't seem to harm it.

  4. Gorgeous card, love the shades of blue. I've used a glue stick on the back of my rubber stamps. I also bought some "magnetic glue" from Claritystamp recently which is a repositional glue, probably for stencils really. So far it hasn't attacked the rubber of my stamp or the plastic of my misti, but I've not been using it for long.
