If you are the lucky owner of a Stamparatus, you know how much easier it makes your stamping life! It helps eliminate those pesky “halos”, and if your image isn’t perfect, you can stamp it again in the exact same place!
Today I have a tip for using your Stamparatus with punched or die cut pieces, and how to get them stamped perfectly each time. And, you only need to set it up once, no matter how many pieces you need to stamp.
1. Cut or punch your shape out of a piece of cardstock. It helps if this is a piece with a corner, instead of an odd-shaped scrap.
2. Line up the piece that framed your shape and secure it in the Stamparatus.
3. Place your stamp over the cut-out area as close as possible to where you think it should be stamped.
4. Close the Stamparatus plate and press to secure the stamp to the plate.
5. Ink and stamp the image onto a piece of scrap paper UNDER your cut out. If it’s not aligned properly, slide another piece of scrap paper under the cut out and tweak your stamp placement until it is perfectly positioned.
6. Lay your cut or punched shape into the cut out and stamp it. It should be perfect!
7. Remove the stamped piece, put another piece in the cut-out and stamp until you have as many as you need.
It may take a bit of time to get it set up and positioned properly, but once you’ve got it lined up, you can stamp ten, or a hundred, and each one will be perfectly aligned!
