Using the Stamparatus and Varied Vases for Fast Punching

The Stamparatus is great for making multiples with a punch or a die.  Here's the card I made, inspired by Julie Dimatteo.  

First you punch out a template - you'll see the 3 vases the leaf and the tulip.

Now put this template onto your stamparatus with the magnets (don't let the magnets get too close they'll break!).  

Now line up the 3 vases into the holes in the template.

Press the stamparatus plate onto the vases to "pick up" the 3 stamps.

Now put down a piece of paper on top of your template.

Stamp.  The 3 vases are now lined up perfectly to fit the punch.

See.. I insert the paper and punch. Now I have 3 vases (so quick to make many cards).

Now I'll place these 3 vases down on my card front 4 x 5 1/4.  I'll line up the 3 flower stems and the greeting.  Press my stamparatus down and pick up the stamps. Remove the vases.  And I stamp. All lined up just right.  

Done! The Blackberry Bliss layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I love the thin border as I think it matches the thin stems of the flowers.

You can do the same thing with dies.  Use your Big Shot to cut many "blank" pieces.  Cut a template. Put the template onto the stamparatus and then insert a blank piece, stamp.  Do lots of times.  So quick and easy!

Sorry I've been a bit off with blogging... so much happening with family visits, summer fun, planning my Christmas in July event (sold out July 22 but a few places left July 20 - check out events tab for details).  

Happy stamping, MaryKate
