Stamparatus Blog Hop and One Wild Ride ….
Welcome to my blog today … I am so excited to be hopping with 19 amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world to showcase …
the Stamparatus ™
The Stamparatus is a fabulous new Stamp Placement tool from Stampin’ Up!®. It will be available from 1st June 2018 with the launch of the new Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue and will totally enhance your stamping experience. Today we are bringing you a whole hop full of techniques, tips and tricks to using this wonderful tool.
One Wild Ride
This is a one layer card and everything has been precision stamped and aligned using the Stamparatus™.
While photopolymer stamps are very easy to position because they are clear, the rubber clear mount or “cling” stamps can be a little bit trickier. Sometimes the index image on the stamp doesn’t line up exactly with the rubber image, or there are many of us who don’t even put the index images on the stamp.
How to line those images up precisely without a lot of trial and error? The solution is to grab yourself a sheet of Polypropylene Plastic from any stationery supplies shop and make yourself a Stamp Imaging sheet cut to a size to suit the Stamparatus. Or use a thick binding cover sheet or even a piece of packaging plastic. Using it is the same principal as the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, but so much easier. There will be no more getting right to the final stages of your card and stamping your greeting just that little bit crooked.
And for me, the best part of positioning your stamps this way is that you can design on the go. Work out exactly where that image is going to look best before you stamp it. (In my case, this gives me yet another opportunity to procrastinate about making a decision! :))
Here is a video to show you the process.
Or you can watch on You Tube here.
The Stamparatus will be available for purchase on June 1. For a great video series on the Stamparatus, please visit Stampin’ Up! Youtube Channel.
