This amazing tool was unveiled at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event that happened late last week in Salt Lake City. I have read several different blog posts as well as information in Demonstrator only forums, and it is clear that Stampin’ Up! has been working with lots of demonstrators to design this amazing tool. I received the Misti tool as a gift from my husband, and it really was a revolutionary product in the stamping world. I’m so glad that Stampin’ Up! took the time to refine some distinguishing features for their version of a stamp positioning tool. I will definitely be purchasing one of these (hopefully during the first reservation window – see information on that below).
Here are some of the amazing features of this great tool:
The pictures are helpful, but I’m sure you want to know some more reasons why you will NEED this tool. Here are some highlights that I’ve observed to help you justify getting one of these gems:
- Make multiple stamped panels with ease (great for mass producing cards)
- Stamp on larger pieces of paper (due to the two open sides) – which is great for full size scrapbook pages
- If your stamped image isn’t crisp, apply more ink and re-stamp – no need to start over
- Since the plates are repositionable, you can easily re-position and repeat the stamped image to create a larger image
- Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images with the dual, reversible plates
- If you have hand strength or stability issues, this tool will make your stamping life much more enjoyable
- The purchase price of $49 is competitive with other stamp positioning tools on the market
You may have noticed in my earlier phrasing that I used the term “reservation window”. You will go through a different ordering procedure (for the time being) for this new tool. I assume that Stampin’ Up! is taking this approach to prevent backorder issues for this highly anticipated tool.
Below are the step-by-step details for placing your reservation. Normally you place orders through my on-line store; in this case you will click a “RESERVE” link on the Stamparatus page (the page is not yet active as of the time that I’m posting here). When you place your reservation during one of the reservation windows, you will be asked for credit card information for your order. Your credit card will not be charged at that time, rather it will be charged when you finalize the order (after Step 4 in the diagram below).
