The MISTI stamping tool has been a game-changer for me, in getting good solid ink coverage because you can stamp the same image repeatedly until you get the ink coverage you're happy with. :)

You start out with a 4.25" x 11" piece of card stock. Put the scalloped edge right up to one end of the card stock and run it through your die cutting machine. Then, turn the card stock around, line up the score line in the middle of the card stock with the score line on the die and run it thru again, cutting out the other end.

To stamp two at a time, there are several stamps for each section of flowers. So I simply die cut all four of my floral bouquets from one sheet of card stock and put the negative in my misti (stuck to the cricut mat that I cut to size to fit in my misti) and then popped all four die cuts in the spaces where they'd been cut from. Then, I simply inked up one layer of flowers on one of the die cuts and another layer on another of the die cuts, so that I could ink up and stamp two stamps at a time. Made things go a bit faster.

For the largest flower, I used berry sorbet, pure poppy and scarlet jewel for the three layers. On the slightly smaller surrounding flowers, I layered pure poppy on pure poppy for the first two layers and topped them with scarlet jewel. As for stamping two at a time, there are several stamps for each section of flowers. So I simply die cut all four of my floral bouquets from one sheet of card stock and put the negative in my misti (stuck to the cricut mat that I cut to size to fit in my misti) and then popped all four die cuts in the spaces where they'd been cut from.
