For this card I used my brand new Stamparatus! I waited very impatiently while the delivery company held the order for 3 days before sending it out for delivery! This did not include the days they were shut down because of Christmas. I held off making this card so I could use the Stamparatus to stamp it. Talk about a breeze to work with! Here's the final card .....
I cased this card from Kylie Page and changed a couple of things to make it my own. I used the Stamparatus to line up the Pandas, then I could easily stamp more than one without worrying about placement.
This is the Stamparatus by Stampin' Up! It has 2 removeable plates where you can put the stamps to stamp them with no effort. Each plate comes off at the hinge so you can turn it around and place a stamp on the other side, so you can have up to 4 stamps lined up easily. Remember, when you store it, remove the side plates completely and lay them on top of the base. The black foam mat you see is the adapter for use with photopolymer stamps. This tool works well with photopolymer and clear mount stamps, but will not work with wood mounted stamps.
Here I am stamping the first image. I did learn something very valuable, I feel. When stamping close to the hinges, place your stamp on the plate that does not have the hinge right beside it. Here you can see I placed the first stamp on the top plate to allow complete stamping. But, if you do place the stamp right beside the hinge and your image doesn't stamp completely, you just have to re-ink your stamp and stamp again. The image will be stamped in EXACTLY the same spot and you can fix any boo boos.
The first stamped image complete
The second image was placed on the side plate (it is now far enough away that the hinge does not impact the stamped image).
Voila! Stamped exactly where I wanted it.
And the third image is on the other side of the top plate.
All three images stamped exactly as and where I wanted them to be. No shadowing and no smudging.
But, the Party Pandas stamp set is available for FREE now with a minimum $60 order before shipping and taxes from the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I used the Bubbles and Fizz designer paper also available FREE in the Sale-a-Bration brochure with a $60 order.
