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
