Swapping Love

I recently attended a Stampin’ Up! Canada event. It was a business focused seminar, but any time a bunch of demonstrators gather there is bound to be lots of sharing of ideas, both business and creative. I made some swaps to share, because we all love to swap!

I posted another card that was very similar to this one recently, but I actually made these first. I used a scrunched up plastic bag to create my interesting marble background effect. I was having so much fun with it while making these swaps it spilled over to other colours!! The Dandelion Wishes stamp inked with Gorgeous Grape worked great on this Highland Heather background. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped with Gorgeous Grape on Coastal Cabana. I love how these three colours work together.
If you have ever made swaps, or multiples of the same card (think Christmas, invitations, thank you’s, etc) you know that working in an assembly line fashion can really help with the productivity. The only hard part is getting the stamped sentiment centered nicely on the tag if you punch it first. But I have a perfect solution for you.

Use your Stamparatus.

When you punch your first tag, keep the cardstock as a template. You can then use that with your Stamparatus for all your tags. Set your stamp up as you normally would when using the Stamparatus, then just take out the stamped tag, drop the next one in and get perfect placement for each stamp. Quick and easy!

Using the Stamparatus to create multiples of the same card is a great way to save time, and ensure each one is perfect.
Happy Stamparatus-ing!!
