It’s finally here

April 2, 2018

My Stamparatus arrived on Monday and I was so excited to be able to try it out.  I had a bit of fun creating a simple card, which I had seen on the net somewhere.  It also gave me a chance to use the Epic Celebration stamp set which unfortunately is no longer available.  I am sorry I didn’t share these earlier, but thought that you would like to see them anyway.  Before I started using the Stamparatus I watched this video from Stampin’ Up!.

 

After watching the video I placed my card into the corner of the stamparatus and placed the “happy birthday” stamp from the Perennial Birthday stamp set onto the card and closed the lid.  For the pink card I stamped the first “happy birthday” using Pink Pirouette ink.  I stamped the second greeting using the same ink but this time I re-inked and stamped over the image once more.  The stamparatus makes this so easy.  You don’t have to worry about the stamp moving, it is always perfectly aligned.  I stamped the third greeting using Sweet Sugarplum ink and the fourth greeting uses the same ink stamped twice.  The last greeting is Melon Mambo ink.  The panel is attached to scored and folded Melon Mambo card.  I stamped the shoe image from the Epic Celebration stamp set onto Whisper White card using Basic Black Archival ink.  I coloured the image using a Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker and cut it out.  The image is attached to a circle of Whisper White card cut using one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I attached the image to a Melon Mambo scalloped oval cut using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies before attaching to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped “here’s to an epic celebration” from the Epic Celebration stamp set onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink.

The blue card uses Pool Party, Marina Mist and Dapper Denim ink.  The image is coloured using an Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker and the scalloped circle and the card base are Island Indigo card.   The inside of the card is decorated in the same way as the pink card.

Oh, I know this is going to be so useful in my crafting.  Of course, it would be extra-fantastic if you are stamping multiples of the same image.  I will spend a little more time getting to know this Stamparatus and share some more ideas with you soon.

Bye for now,

Kris
