Stamparatus Intro & DIY Enhancements

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! (think of Shirley Temple saying that) I am so excited to introduce the new brand new stamping tool from Stampin' Up!


Back in November, demonstrators and customers were able to reserve a Stamparatus (they also had a second reservation in December due to popularity).  And I received mine last Friday, which I promptly demonstrated on my Friday Facebook Live and Periscope. Than my son moved out over the weekend, and I was not able to upload a YouTube video, until today.

Now for those that did not get in on the reservation, don't worry!!! The Stamparatus will be available in the new annual catalog, debuting in June of 2018.

Ok, what is it?  In case your not familiar with it.  Here are some details:

It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!
Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

Make multiples with ease
Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

I need product details!

Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
2 magnets to hold the paper in place

Retail Price–$49.00 USD/$65.00 CAD
Stampin’ Up! will not replace broken magnets.



I knew right away I wanted to create some "enhancements" for my Stamparatus.  I like to save money where I can, so I took some of Stampin' Up! window sheets (acetate) and created some pieces to help with creating more stamped looks.
