Rainbow Stampin’ with the Stamparatus

This card is so bright and festive, it’s got to make the recipient happy, right?  I created this “rainbow stamping” with the Stamparatus.  What’s a Stamparatus you ask?

A “must-have” tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.  It works well with clear-mount red rubber stamps and photopolymer stamps.  The Stamparatus was created by stampers for stampers, (I was even on the design team) so it has all the features you want: 2 magnets to hold the paper in place; foam mat for use with photopolymer stamps; rulers on 2 sides for quick measuring; 2 open edges so you can use larger paper; and 2 reversible plates for 4 sides to work with.  

How to Rainbow Stamp with the Stamparatus

For today’s card, I attached the stamp to one of the plates of the Stamparatus and colored the top portion of the stamp with my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker, then stamped it on my paper.  I wiped the ink off the stamp and colored another section of the stamp with Mango Melody and stamped it and so on, with the Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape.  By markering and stamping then wiping off the stamp, I didn’t have to worry about my markers becoming contaminated with the previous color.  This also made the on paper blending of one color to the next fool-proof.

The “mosaic” background was achieved by punching out various pieces of matching cardstock with the Pretty Label Punch and attaching them to a piece of Whisper White cardstock (and trimming the edges) before running it through the Big Shot with the Hexagon Embossing Folder.

The Stamparatus is available to order starting June 1st at 12:00pm Mountain Time
