It’s video day and today it’s all about how to save on cardstock with this simple stamp positioner tip! You already know the Stamparatus can save you time, frustration and money, right? Well here is another super quick idea to help you make designs without wasting cardstock!
In fact, I had to give myself a bit of a head slap 😳 to say “why didn’t I think of this sooner?!”
I used it on this spring-y card.
Pretty yes? I used my Stamparatus and hinge-step stamping to make my tulips and added some punch with a couple punched out tulips layered on top.
Sure the Stamparatus is a wonderful tool. But sometimes we get so excited we lose our minds just a titch. Do you ever end up with green flowers and yellow or purple leaves? I sure did. And then I had to clean my stamps, grab more paper and start all over again. Usually cursing under my breath the whole time! 😡
But this time I used my short tip to save some time – and yes, a whole lotta frustration.
Let’s take a quick view!
How to Save on Cardstock with This Simple Stamp Positioner Tip
Here’s why I love this idea.
- so gosh darn easy!
- super duper fast!
- cheaper than dirt!
Let’s take a closer look at my card design today and then I’ll give you a few of my design tips to make it at home.
Jo’s Design Tips
- Use thick Whisper White (or Very Vanilla) cardstock for the best weight.
- Fold your regular A2 card in half first, then stamp using your Stamparatus. Then fold that stamped side to the back and stamp the inside of the card with the exact same design.
- Crop a frame from the front (this one is the largest of the Stitched So Sweetly dies) and set aside for a second card (YAY! Two for the price of one! 😍)
- Stamp two large tulips and leaves on a scrap piece of Whisper White and punch out with the Tulip Builder punch to layer directly over top of the stamped tulips for dimension.
- Add your greeting last, also using your stamp positioner.
Your card will go together quickly and you’ll have no green tulips and purple stems when you use this tip!
This stamp set was a must-have for me from the January to June Spring Mini Catalogue. In fact, since I think it was so, so versatile, it was also the stamp set each attendee at our all day retreat this past Saturday received!
So many wonder sentiments and lots of variety to create a field of tulips!
