Hello SCT friends! I’m Jennifer Frost, Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team member. I know the time and energy that goes on behind the scenes of a pretty card design. When you’ve created a project you love, why not stamp several and have a batch on hand! Especially since mass producing cards is now so easy to do with the brand new Stamparatus tool.
This must-have tool is fabulous for making sure layering stamps, like the floral patterns featured in the Abstract Impressions Photopolymer Stamp Set, are perfectly aligned every time!
For today’s project, I cut several 85 x 129mm pieces of Whisper White Cardstock. Then I positioned my flower stamps by placing them face down on the paper and closing the plates to pick up them up. The base of the flower was stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the next layer in Poppy Parade as pictured. Once I stamped all my prepared white panels with these two layers, I cleaned up the plates and added the final layer in Real Red.
The beauty of the twin plates is that you can add several stamps at a time. As you see in the image below, I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad, at the same time as the leaf outline in Call Me Clover.
You may notice in this picture the smaller, block leaf image is on the reverse side of the plate. Simply unmount the plate, flip, apply, layered with smaller block stamp in Soft Sea Foam and close!
At this stage, I had a really sweet and simple design, perfect for a bunch of quick notecards. I could not resist dressing it up a little. To do that, I added a spray of smaller flowers from the same set, in Powder Pink, a little Linen Thread, and a small Poppy Parade Cardstock for the border. Then I adhered this to the front of a folded white card base that had been covered with a panel of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.
Pick up the Abstract Impression stamp set and your very own Stamparatus today and try a little timesaving mass production of your own!
