Stamparatus ~ Hinge Stampin’ # 2 – Video Tutorial

This is the 3rd in my series of short and sweet videos showing tips and techniques using the Stamparatus.  It shows another type of hinge stamping using the delightful Touches of Texture Stamp Set, stamping off technique using the Stamparatus and a little watercoloring

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.

Love What You Do Friend Card

I have used the Love What You Do stamp set and other products from the Share What you Love Suite of products an awful lot – it is just very versatile and has a wide range of colors within the DSP which means I get plenty of choices when designing a card.  ALSO – as a demonstrator I was able to get my hands on this suite way back in April – so it has given me plenty of time to play with it.  (If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator there is a great deal for joining Stampin’ UP! in July ……. click here if you would like to know more)

The Perks of Being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Oh I do love being a demonstrator, where else could I spend time playing with paper, ink and stamps, enjoying a 20 – 25% discount on all my supplies and still be able to tell people I am going to work!  I have met folks, made friendships and visited places that always bring back happy memories and stay in my heart.  It also gives me a chance to get my hands on new Stampin’ UP! goodies ahead of the official launch.

When I was at OnStage at the begining of April, (our biannual conference) everyone got an advance  copy of the brand new Annual Catalog , which is now well thumbed,  and  we were able to purchase a selection of items early ahead of the June full release.  As a demo  I got to shop from the whole Share What You Love suite. And so could you, starting today!
