I get MISTI ...or do I?

So many talented crafters rave about the MISTI stamping tool that I’ve been considering it for a while now but a few things stop me….

Firstly, the price…  from around £45 for the smallest, to £90 for the scrapbook size, this seems a big investment. Okay, not as big as my Silhouette Cameo but  MIsti does seem to mostly be two pieces of plastic and some magnets. I have tried the DIY route but haven’t really found a way that works for me.

Secondly, availability. I much prefer to use UK stockists for those products that are available here. Not many retailers seem to stock the MISTI and everytime I search for it, I see the words ‘pre-order’ and ‘out of stock’. When I want something, I want it now!

Finally, my style of crafting . Yes, it sounds the ideal tool for a slap-dash stamper but really, I fear I will only think of using the MISTI after I’ve made an almighty mess!

So…do I get MISTI?
