Stamparatus by Stampin’ Up!

Today’s post features three projects made with the Stamparatus by Stampin’ Up! and the Incredible Like You Stamp Set from the Occasions catalog.

These were the projects demonstrated in my 12/13/18 Facebook Live. There are three different versions of this card, one for the beginning crafter, one for the casual crafter and the last one for the avid crafter. In the Facebook Live I also shared samples of 5 of the 7 product shares currently being offered as a preorder through 1/4/19. These are unique and fun shares that I hope you’ll check out. There are photos toward the bottom of this post.

Today's project features the Incredible Like You Stamp Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Stamparatus by Stampin’ Up!.

This first version is the simplest of the three and might appeal to someone that is new to cardmaking, or just someone who prefers a simpler design.

I call this first card a Three Minute Thursday card. It’s so simple that it can be made is just about three minutes with the help of the Stamparatus by Stampin’ Up!.

I was inspired to make this card for my daughter who just finished her first semester of college. She worked so hard, and rose to the challenges she faced, with courage and determination! I couldn’t be more proud. My other daughter just got her first job which is a very big milestone for her. I am so incredibly proud of both of my daughters!

The flowers were stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and I used first, second and third inking to create variety in the look of the flowers.

This next version has some added layers and a little bit of additional stamping at the top.

I used a trick using the Stamparatus by Stampin’ Up! to get the last image stamped at the top, with the same even spacing as the images below. Check out my Facebook Live video toward the end of this post to learn how I did it.

I used more layers on this casual crafter’s card. I personally love layers. It’s like adding more mattes to a framed print. It adds more dimension and makes for a more interesting “frame” to my little piece of art.

The final version has yet another detail. I’ve added some rhinestone jewels for a little bling, and velvet trim instead of simple bakers twine.

On this version, I also decided to stamp the darker sentiments toward the bottom instead of toward the top. Having the darker images at the bottom sort of grounds the card a bit better but I really like both ways of doing it.

Making this type of incremental change to a design is so fun! I don’t have to start from scratch with a new design and then, in the end, I have a beautiful coordinating set of cards too!

I love this simple design and the fact that it can be adapted to meet the needs or desires of different types of crafters!

Which of the above designs do you prefer and which type of crafter are you?
