Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
It’s good to be back!! My workload got a little more hectic than I had planned (happens to us all) but who plans on the drama … right!! But I’m thrilled to be here today to share with you one of the cards that we created in my “Stamperatus 1” Class yesterday.
In class we learned about the parts of the stamparatus, how they interact, how to clean it and to store it. We talked about the it’s core function of “stamp placement” and the wonderful ability to create repeatable stamping. In fact, this little gem is great just for those two features alone, but it does so much more!
Here is a quick video to quickly share the basics and introduce you to the new products that came out to accessorize the Stamparatus…
Todays card features the “Hinge Technique” … we are able to do this fun technique because the hinges are not only removeable but can be moved in equal increments. It’s so easy and so amazing.
We used Cherry Cobbler for our greeting. The stamp is aligned onto my cardstock and then “picked up” with to plate so you can begin your stamping. Once your stamp is inked, stamp directly onto your cardstock. You will then take the plate out of by the hinge, move it down one notch and replace it back into the hinge and stamp again (without re-inking) This will give you a slightly lighter image. You will do that one more time creating the final and lightest of the 3 images.
The large leave stamp is stamped onto your cardstock and with the stamparatus you can add the solid stamp in perfect alignment every time. You see, I showed them how and where each of the stamps were placed and then everyone used the same plates to stamp their projects … what does that mean. You have the ability to create a multitude of cards that all look the same.
The little leaves also used the “Hinge Technique” for their placement. This really is a slick little tool to help you with your card creations. Easy, fast and precise.
Thank you so much for joining me this Sunday.
I hope you have a most wonderful day ~
