Cool Tools

Quite a few of my card class “students” are relatively new to papercrafts, or some are scrapbookers just getting into cardmaking.  Anyway, many of them don’t have a stamping platform like the (fabulous) Stamparatus.  Seriously, I think it’s the best one out there.  Anyway, we were making this card:

It’s a simple card, Balmy Blue cardstock base, Very Vanilla embossed with the Basketweave embossing folder.  I had the students use the Stamparatus to do the two-step stamping for the flower.  I diecut a flower (see the blue paper on the Stamparatus platform in the photo).

Then we diecut multiple flower shapes (from the To A Wild Rose stamp bundle) in Whisper White. I used both doors of the Stamparatus, and centered each stamp in the outline before picking the stamp up with the doors.

When they popped their blank flower shape into the negative, they inked up each stamp in turn, and stamped the image.  Next person, next flower, next person, next flower.  It’s so great for classes, and for individuals making stacks of cards!  A little ribbon, dimensional foam to pop up the flower, and the card was done.  I love the instant gratification of cardmaking!  🙂

Thanks for stopping by, and if you haven’t seen one, check out the Stamparatus.  You can do that by clicking the Visit My Site button on this page, and searching for Stamparatus.  Stop back again- in the meantime, happy stamping!
