Shadow Stamping with the Stamparatus… by Jennifer Frost

Once-tricky stamping techniques are now a breeze with the brand new Stamparatus (item 146276), available in the new 2018–2019 annual catalog as of June 1! Take shadow stamping, for instance. Adding subtle, professional-looking shadowing to the bold “Sorry” in these projects was quick and easy with this new tool!
How did I do it? To start, I positioned a piece of cardstock to the top left of my Stamparatus and secured it with a magnet. Then I placed my stamp from the Sorry for Everything Stamp Set (item 143820) face down on the paper and closed the plate to pick up the stamp. I lifted the plate, added ink (tone on tone, the same color as the cardstock), and reclosed to stamp the word. Then I allowed the ink to dry.
TIP: I used my heat tool to ensure this first stamped layer was dry; this will be important afterward in achieving a clean, heat-embossed layer.
Next, I positioned the paper exactly where it was again, bringing it down from the top of the Stamparatus edge just a tiny bit, a few millimeters, as pictured.
Then I applied VersaMark ink (item 102283) to the stamp and closed the plate to re-stamp the word. I added White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132) and heat set with the Heat Tool (item 129053) to complete the technique.
One of the key benefits of the Stamparatus is you can stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely. While the stamp was all set up and ready to go, I couldn’t resist creating a full collection of these lovely shadowed sentiments.
I’ve paired these stamped panels with the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Papers (item 146926). Bows of Linen Thread (item 104199) added a little texture and I’ve layered in touches of shimmer by way of Pearlized Doilies (item 146936), strips of Gold (item 146958) or Silver (item 146960) Glimmer Paper, and swashes of Berry Burst (item 145489) or Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon (item 144146).
I hope you’ve enjoyed this set of cards and it encourages you to break out your Stamparatus and give a little shadow stamping of your own a try!

Hello 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!

Posted on

The glorious new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog is now officially live which means…
ORDERS FROM THE 2018-2019 ANNUAL CATALOG ARE NOW BEING TAKEN!

Not sure what your Wish List/Shopping List is looking like but mines looking more and more like a roll of toilet paper it’s so long!

As fortunate as I was as a demonstrator to be able to pre-order from this catalog, it wasn’t from the entire catalog, just a select few items. Now don’t get me wrong, I still placed an order trust me, it just wasn’t everything I wanted.

Needless to say this additional time has allowed me to plan and replan what my needs for this summer will be. There’s a lot of work in my backyard going to be taking place so some “nice” rewards awaiting me at my workbench are a must!

When you have your order ready, simply email or call it through to me ’cause… the sooner you order, the sooner you receive your treats. WOOT WOOT!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Amazing Congratulations!

Posted on

This week I’m having the best time with a new stamp set. It can be used for just so many occasions – male or female. The Amazing Congratulations Stamp Set can be found on page 51 of the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

This stamp set has 14 photopolymer stamps with CONGRATULATIONS a three-step process – stamp the online, then stamp the darkest color, finishing with a lighter ink to blend the two colors.

A quick reminder regarding the 2018 Occasions Catalog, this catalog finishes at the end of next month, May 31. Now is a good time to begin “refining” your wish-list to place your order soon!
