The Stamping Tool - the Stamparatus - new tool to stamp


Stampin' Up has introduced a new Stampin' Tool called the Stamparatus. 

Why the name Stamparatus???  It is a combination of two words: stamp and apparatur.

Stamp: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on   a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked  block or die or other instrument

Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a  particular activity or purpose

Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus


It was produced over a number of years with the assistance of an L2L Leader to Leader)  team, of which I was a part of.  Well, it is now finally able to be obtained by demonstrators and customers alike..  But first, check out this  video by Carrie explaining this amazing tool.

    A Wonderful Life Christmas

    This older model of the car in this stamp set reminded me of times gone by. The car is piled high with Christmas presents and is also bringing home a Christmas tree.

    The images were coloured with the new Stampin Blendabilities, and then I applied Crystal Effects on the card (that's what makes it look so shiny)
    On close up you can see the details of the stamping better - with Happy Christmas on the trunk and " Blessed" on the license plate.


    The card base is Cherry Cobbler, layered with Whisper White embossed with the Oh My Stars embossing folder.

    Behind the art piece I place some Crumb Cake and behind that a Garden Green banner.  A strip of striped Be Merry DSP is adhered to the left side and I added some gold glitter next to the DSP.

    Supplies Needed:
    Stamp:  A Wonderful Life
    Inks:  Black Memento, Real Red, Garden Green, Stampin' Blendabilities
    Papers:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Be Merry DSP
    Accessories:  Oh My Stars Embossed Folder, Crystal Effects, Gold Glitter (non SU)
