The Stamparatus is coming!!

Wahoo, are you sitting down? I have some super exciting news for you....the STAMPARATUS is coming!! This is literally THE best stamp placement tool on the market and you can be one of the first to own one. Stamparatus_header

The Stamparatus was developed in partnership with the amazing Leader to Leader (L2L) program and I was part of it!! This is big news because this tool breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp and before long, you will wonder how you crafted without it!
Here is a great video from Stampin' Up! to show you how it works!!!

Do you tend to create multiple projects?
Do you love trying new techniques?
Do you prefer having things perfectly lined up and precisely placed?
Is it difficult for you to hold on to a stamp block?
Have you ever struggled to apply just the right amount of pressure when you stamp?
You NEED a Stamparatus! You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with the Stamparatus!

Why do you need one?
-Make multiples with ease
-Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
-If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over!
-Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
-Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
-Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement
-Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamps
-Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
-Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
-Two open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
-Two reversible hinged plates: a total of FOUR surfaces to work with
-Two magnets to hold the paper in place with magnet storage areas on the bottom of the tool.

Here's how you get one.

With the launch of this tool, Stampin' Up! is trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and they guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in the warehouse.. This system will allow Stampin' Up! to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

*Stamparatus Item #146276
*One tool per customer
*Beginning March 19, Stamparatuses will ship in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
You must finalize the purchase of your Stamparatus through the online ordering system so if you have not created an online account, you will need to CLICK HERE and do that now. Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from Stampin' Up!

How to Reserve Your StamparatusCLICK HERE to begin the reservation process on Thursday, December 5th at 2:00pm Mountain Time.  When you close your reservation order, be sure to verify that your credit card, email and shipping information is correct. When the Stamparatus Tools arrive at the warehouse, you will receive an email that your tool is ready to ship, you will then need to log into your Online Account, add any additional items you need , redeem and rewards (Sale-a-bration and Host Rewards!!) and complete the payment process. If you do not complete the payment process, your tool will not ship.

The first reservation window begins, Thursday, November 16th at 2:00pm Mountain Time. There are limited quantities available each time so order early to guarantee that you get one.


PLEASE let me know if you have any questions on this new reservation process, Email me, call or text me 30-752-3037.

Every Good Wish

I needed some quick cards last week so I thumbed through the Holiday Catalog and found this one on page 9.  It uses the Every Good Wish stamp set and the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Big Catalog on page 189.  The paper is Soft Sky or Blushing Bride on one side and Gold Foil on the other.  Gold Foil is perfect for Christmas!!

Every Good Wish cards, I made about 18 of these cards in 1/2 hour super simple but amazing!!  Details on my blog www.barbstamps.comI stamped the main image in Real Red on a piece of Very Vanilla that measures 3-1/2 x 2-1/4. I colored the holly and berries with my Real Red and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers.  I added this stamped layer to a layer of the Gold Foil DSP that measures 4 x 5-1/4 and then to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.  I also stamped the holly and berries on the envelope!! Every Good Wish cards, I made about 18 of these cards in 1/2 hour super simple but amazing!!  Details on my blog I made 18 cards in about 1/2 hour so I was thrilled at how simple but stunning they are.
