Stamparatus Fun – Tropical Chic Thank You Card

I was able to get perfect placement of the frames on the card below by using my Stamparatus.  For this card, after I stamped the first frame, I moved the paper!  You don’t always need to move the Stamparatus plate.  This time I had to move the paper to get the image placement that I needed.

The more I use my new positioning tool, the more versatile it becomes!  And from my last few blog posts, you can see how versatile this stamp can be.

You will create 3 cards that demonstrate 3 different techniques that you can do with the Stamparatus and receive templates and handouts to take home.  Additional techniques will be demonstrated so you will go home with knowing how to get the most out of your Stamparatus once you have one.
