Meet Stamparatus - your new stamping best friend

I'm so excited to introduce you to our new stamp positioning tool - the Stamparatus (Stamp-a-rat-us).
Designed by & exclusively for Stampin' Up!, it's going to be your new stamping best friend.

It's so fast and easy it is to create multi layer images like the butterfly above, using clear mount rubber or photopolymer stamps.  Don't get a complete image first time you stamp? You can re-stamp for a perfect image. Make more cards, quicker, to help you send lots more handmade love and it's truly a stamping game-changer.

We saw the Stamparatus in action at our Onstage demonstrator event last weekend & I'm sure everyone in the room wanted it NOW! I've not been as excited to get my hands on a new tool since I got my Big Shot.

Lets take a closer look what's included with the Stamparatus.


- Magnetic base with ruler grid. Our Australian version has both cm's & inches.
- Two sides of base are open to hold larger paper sizes.
- Foam mat - to cushion photopolymer stamps. (see it below on the base)
- Two double sided clear stamping plates - this mean 4 stamping surfaces to use. The plates can be moved along the hinged base to stamp multiple images.  We call this the hinge step.
- Two super-strong bar magnets hold your projects in place while you stamp.
- Non-skid back to hold with space to hold magnets (see below)

All that adds up to fun, fast & easy stamping.
Watch this video to see Stamparatus in action & all you need to know.
