Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Fun Ways to Use Your Stampin’ Up! Products” where we show our favorite product tips. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I am so excited that the Sweet Strawberry Bundle is finally back in stock. YAY!
I wanted to show you my tip for using the Stamparatus and a Post-It Note to create a template to quickly crop all images with the coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.
NOTE: This process can be used with all builder punches.
- Use the builder punch to crop a Post-It Note.
- Place the Post It Note on a piece of Small Grid Paper on the plate of the Stamparatus.
- Place the first stamp within the cropped area, getting as close to the center of the area as possible.
- Grab the stamp with the Stamparatus Plate.
- Repeat for all stamps needed for the coordinating punch.
- Double-check placement by taking the Post It Note and laying it over the stamps on the Stamparatus Plate (photo on the left).
- Stamp onto the grid paper and lay the Post It Note over the top, confirming proper placement (photo on right).
- Proceed with stamping and quickly cropping the images for your project.
Begin by cutting a piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score and fold at 4 1/4.
Adhere a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Pattern Party 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (Stampin’ Rewards Exclusive) to a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Stampin’ Seal. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 3. Stamp the two sentiments in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as shown.
Wrap with Black/White Baker’s Twine (Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack), adhering to the backside with Mini Glue Dots. Tie a bow of the same twine, adhering as shown with a Mini Glue Dot. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use the builder punch to crop a Post-It Note (create a template). Place the Post It Note on a piece of Small Grid Paper on the plate of the Stamparatus. Place the first stamp within the cropped area, getting as close to the center of the area as possible. Grab the stamp with the Stamparatus Plate. Repeat for all stamps needed for the coordinating punch.
Double-check placement by taking the Post It Note and laying it over the stamps on the Stamparatus Plate. Stamp onto the grid paper and lay the Post It Note over the top, confirming proper placement.
Stamp the images in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Repeat 2 more times. Color the images with a Water Painter along with Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Classic Inks. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.
Embellish with Matte Black Dots.
