The Stamparatus is Stampin’ UP!’s latest tool and an absolute must have for all stampers. It helps you perfectly align your stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and accurately and gets complete ink coverage – ‘cos you can do a ‘do-over’ as my video today will show.
Today’s card uses the Stamparatus to set up the greeting straight and level. I made about 30 of these cards as thank you’s for my lovely customers who shopped with me in June and I can tell you it made the job of stamping the greetings very quick.
I have included a couple of video tutorials on this post ~ the first giving you a general intro to the Stamparatus and the second one on how to line up the text – using the red rubber stamps.
I chose to use the Lemon Zest Stamp set for this card – along with one of the new 2018 – 2020 In-colors ~ Pineapple Punch – it is such a bright and vibrant color – perfect for my lemons.
Card base: 11 x 5 1/4 Pineapple Punch Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Gray Granite Card
Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Whisper White Card
Ink Colors : Pineapple Punch and Gray Granite
The leaves are punched from Granny Apple Green (keeping a fruit theme going here!) using the Lemon Builder Punch, which coordinates with the Lemon Zest Stamp Set. Then a final scattering of Gold Metallic Pearls.
If you use Lemon Lime Twist Card and Ink this will make some really great limes in place of the lemons!
If you are thinking about investing in a Stamparatus – you will not be sorry – I just love mine and look for any opportunity to pull it out to use.
