Stampin'Up! Opens Reservations for a New Tool - the Stamparatus!!

Stampin'Up! Opens Reservations for a New Tool - the Stamparatus!!

Here's what it looks like:  11.16.17_GIF_STAMPARATUS

It's super for precise stamp placement, double stamping, 2 and 3-step stamping, stamping multiple cards with the stamp in exactly the same place! There are tons more uses!

It has some really significant features:

*it has 4 surfaces to adhere stamps,
*stamping places are movable which is really awesome for placing a stamp on multiple lines,
*it accommodates both red rubber and photopolymer stamps
*has 2 open sides so will accommodate larger paper
*has secure magnet storage space underneath
*has built in rulers for measurement

Watch the video and see how it works!

More Stampin'Blend Fun

 I found a way to have More Stampin'Blend Fun! Check out this cute ornament. Ornament after's ceramic--it's slick and shiny. (Note: you can purchase this type of ornament from your local craft store). One of those that you normally could not color with the standard Stampin'Write markers. But you CAN use our new Stampin'Blend alcohol markers! It is quick and easy too! You can see a bit more detail here: Ornament detail

Here's what it looked like "before" Ornament before
---pretty but adding that bit of color around the border really makes it special and makes the stamped image really pop! I stamped the holly (Holly Berry Happiness) in Memento ink...this is  a waterbased ink which you need to use when using alcohol markers...on Shimmery White cardstock.  I used the Old Olive Blend Combo to color the leaves. Then stamped the bow on Real Red cardstock and punched out with the Holly Builder punch (Item #141843). I punched this out with the 2" circle punch and layered it on a punched circle of red glimmer (Sparkle punch). All these layers are adhered with glue dots.  Isn't that fun!

If you'd like to build your Blend stash you can join the Blend Club--you'll have all 12 colors by the end of January  in easy payments and you are eligible to attend the Blend Class February 4th (class fee $30 includes the Ivory & Bronze Skin tones and the color lifter).
