IT’S FINALLY HERE–STAMPARATUS–FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

It’s finally here, the new precision stamping tool from Stampin’ Up! called Stamparatus.  This tool is even better than the one’s currently on the market.  Many years in the making and developed by our Home Office and Demonstrators, it will bring you precision stamping on small or large surfaces (the bottom and one of the sides are open) and gives you four stamping plates so you don’t have to stamp, replace your stamp and stamp again.  The panels (two) come out easily and can be turned over to make four surfaces.  You also can leave the stamp in place and move the plates down in the hinges so you can repeat stamp down the page.

The tool comes with a gridded stamping base, foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps.  To use with rubber stamps, just remove the mat.  The tool also comes with two reversible plates giving you four surfaces for your stamps, two strong magnets to hold the paper in place and a storage area on the bottom to store your magnet when you are not using the tool.  The plates snap into the two hinges letting you move the plates down and stamping the image again for a repeat look.  There are also rulers and grid marks on the plates and bottom of the tool.

HOW DO I GET ONE?? You might ask.  You can reserve one i.e. preorder one starting November 16th at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time or 2:00 p.m. Mountain time (and so on).  You will need to GO TO MY ON-LINE STORE AT: http://darleneseitz.staminup.net.

Holiday Catalog–Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! has released their new catalog and I hope you are enjoying crafting with some of the new products.  Today, I will start a series of blogs on some of the individual products and/or suites.  For today, I will be showcasing the Carols of Christmas Bundle.

carolsxmas2017

The set (see above) comes with a variety of stamps with big bold greeting.  The matching thinlits have some images that match the stamps and some that you can add to your stamped images.  You can make entirely different cards from this set without anyone knowing you used the same set.  You can also use the border die all year round.  It adds such a nice detail to your cards.   The card also adds the ornaments, which you can die cut, and some rhinestones and ribbon.   Here is a card using the border die:

The set also comes with another big bold greeting Peace on Earth which is showcased in the card shown below.  Adding small details such as the poinsettias and rhinestones with some of the fabulous new striped ribbon finishes off the card.  Oh, and I can’t forget the Designer Series Paper, called Be Merry, which is actually in the Annual Catalog.  (I will list all products with their product number at the end of the post).

20170910_101405(1)

The next card is an entirely different look and uses die cut images.  The sky with the moon and the stars (highlighted with Gold Foil) truly sets the card apart than just having a blank space.  And this die can be used with many sets/cards and year round.  DSP is used again (Be Merry) for the trees which includes white specks for a look of snow.  DSP from the Naturally Eclectic pack is used for the background. The small deers are also  made using die cuts.  You can add any greeting you want to this card or leave the front blank and stamp the inside.  I used the Peace on Earth greeting for the inside.

CHRISTMAS IS COMING…

carolsxmas2017

Seems for me it’s never too early to start getting ready for Christmas.  Stampin’ Up! is going to release their Holiday Catalog on September 1, 2017.  In the meantime, The Carols of Christmas Bundle is being released early (8/1) so you can get a jump on making your Christmas cards.  There are some neat stamps and dies that make for a wow card yet you can go simple with this set of stamps because of the large greetings.

These two cards feature the Peace on Earth greeting.  They both also use the trees.  The one on the right is a shaker card and also uses the sky/moon/stars die on the top.  The one on the left is a fairly simple one which would be perfect for mass producing cards.

These two use the Deck the Halls greeting and the border  which is a real versatile die that could be used all year long.  The one on the left is a good idea for using the set with your family picture included.  Vellum cardstock is used for the top layer and can be picked up so your friends and family can see the picture more clearly.

Father’s Day, Graduation, Masculine cards

     

It’s been awhile since I posted but I am back with some cards.   These two use materials from the nail-it bundle from Stampin’ Up! This would include the hammer, designer paper (on right), the tools and the hexagon stamped with the same set.  The one on the left has designer paper that will be available June 1-it is called Wood Words.

These two also use products from the nailed it bundle.  The one on the right uses the 3-D Hexagon Embossing folder done with silver paper.  The greeting comes from the set Suite Sentiments and has greetings for many occasions.  It is still available until May 31.

These two cards are made with some older stamp sets but are great for masculine cards.  I used the “dragging” technique on the one on the left side.  I saw a similar card so I learned the technique.  I CASEd it.  The one on the right uses a background stamp and I shaded the edges on the card and it makes for a nice effect.

The card on the left, I again CASEd and I used the Playful Background set to get the camouflage look.  This stamp set is available now and will carry over to the new Annual Catalog.  The card on the right uses some designer paper which is retiring.  I stamped directly on the dsp using the Wetlands Stamp Set which is also retiring after May 31, 2017.

One last card for today, a graduation card.  I used a combination of various materials, some you may already have.

Thank you for reading my post.  Don’t forget the retiring products are gone after May 31.  But the good news is there are a whole bunch of new products coming out in the catalog effective June 1, 2017. Here is a link to my on-line store: http://darleneseitz.stampinup.net.  You can see all the new products and carried over products there on June 1, around 12MT.
