June classes - get MUCH more out of your stamps

I am so pleased that our brand new Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool and MUCH more) is now available to purchase. I know this will be a life saver, especially for those with dexterity issues, or those that struggle with clear, crisp stamping.

Just some of the benefits of using our Stamparatus:
  • Less waste of cards and ink
  • Better quality of stamped images 
  • Easy repeat stamping for multiple cards.  Makes batch cards much quicker.
  • NEW techniques, including mirror and wreath stamping
All this means you will get SO MUCH MORE out of existing stamp sets, as you will see them in a different light altogether.

 So, onto our June classes. 

We will be featuring the Stamparatus and there will be plenty of Hints and Tips for you during the class, including some techniques you may not have even thought of. You will have plenty of hands-on time. Here are our 3 samples:

There are 3 techniques included on the above cards: (L to R) Easy mirror stamping, Wreath stamping, and Hinge/ Step stamping. I have a wide choice of stamps you can use, so you can either follow my samples or be adventurous and design your own! Everyone that attended last week really enjoyed the class and learning some new techniques.

Here are the cards in more detail:

Here is an example of Stamping in the round, also known as wreath stamping. Layer up your stamps (3 in this case), stamp once and then turn your card round (using a template (supplied at class) and stamp again... repeat all round your card.  Add a sentiment and you are good to go. Build as many layers as you wish. Use ink pads or marker pens.

In this sample we are showing hinge step stamping. Stamp your image on the left hand side, then lift and move the plate over by 1 step to the right. Re-ink and stamp.... move and repeat.
Mirror stamping of images is a breeze..... stamp once on to your card, and then stamp onto one of our silicone mats, then place your card on top, face down.  You can mirror left-right or top-bottom.  I LOVE these cute animal images - view the stamp set here.
