I received my Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus the other day !  Yay me!!  I have been playing with it just to see the many different ways it will work.  This is an AWESOME product !!  The possibilities are many and my card today is one that none of the other stamp positioning tools will allow you to do.


Stampin' Up!, Eclectic Expressions, Jackie Beers

Eclectic Expressions, 147338 with Stamparatus


I kept the card very simple to showcase the stamping placement.  This was done simply by stamping and then moving the Stamparatus plate down a notch each time.  For the Thank You it was the same. I placed it in the appropriate spot and once again moved the plate down each stamping.  That is it!  How awesome to so easily get this type look.  The possibilities are endless.

The stamp set I used is one of the Sale-A-Bration second release sets.  It is a great set for backgrounds and is perfect for this type of card as well.  Of course, the best part is that it is FREE with a $50.00 purchase.

The only highlights I added were the Brights Enamel Shapes in Bermuda Bay.  The two strips down the edge are the 1/4″ pieces that I cut off of the layers.  I hope this is a tip you will try for using all of those little strips that seem to multiply every day!
