Builder Punch & Stamparatus Technique

The Stamparatus is one of the BEST stamping tools you can have in your craft room. I HIGHLY recommend it for all stampers. It's #1 use for me is doing repeated stamping - like for making 100+ Christmas cards of the same design. BUT, don't think that is all the Stamparatus does because it does so much more! This video is the 2nd in my Facebook Live Stamparatus Series. I'll show you how to maximize your time and eliminate all that waste of card stock you often get with using Builder Punches.

(If you missed the 1st video in my Stamparatus series, you can find it further down in this post.)

 

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!This photo shows my set up before I begin stamping. Notice that I have the strawberry stamps on the top sides of the stamping plates as I stamp those first. The strawberry tops and leaves are each on the reverse side as I'll stamp those second in a different color. Remember to have the stamping plates in a vertical position when removing them from and placing them in the "hinges" of your Stamparatus base.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!

I really do enjoy making my own gift bags and coordinating tags. There's something very satisfying about taking an ordinary, plain bag and making it special! I typically purchase kraft and white paper bags for this purpose.

The easel card below was made with the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set without the coordinating Flowers & Leaves Punch. Instead I chose to color the stamped image with Stampin' Blends.
