Click on the Stamparatus video above to watch!

In yesterday’s post, I highlighted the splashy, new products from the Picture Perfect Party Suite.  They will be available Jan. 3 when the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog begins.  The video above shares a closer look at the birthday card I created with the products as well as tips for layering the sentiment on the candles using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool – a new way to stamp with precision!

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Shop for Stampin’ Up! Uninked Stampin’ Spots to use with ink refills.  The smaller size makes inking stamps using the Stamparatus easier.

Amazon Absorber Cleaning Cloth.

Amazon Bar Magnets (Pack of 2).  The Stamparatus comes with two bar magnets.  However, it’s nice to have these on hand in case you need a backup.  Please be careful – magnets can snap with accidental contact.

    Such a fun and fabulous card, Mary! Great tips on the Stamparatus!

  4. Thank you.

  5. I can’t wait to get mine! Just a little tip though, since the paper you are stamping on a;ready has the image, you can move your paper over so it is not so close to the hinges. Then it shouldn’t matter what size ink pad you use! 😉

    OK you showed me how I do need this with the less than stellar stamping on the left side of the greeting which I tend to do. Loved the tips and tricks for this as well as seeing new products. I have an Archival Black, I believe, from a Paper Pumpkin kit so I will definitely keep my ink spots from the kits.

    Anyway, fun card too. Have a great New Year!

  7. Hi Mary:
    Just watched your stamparjtus video and you mentioned the cleaning cloth – what is the actual name of the product? I live in Canada and Amazon is not as convenient for Canadians as it is for people who live in the USA. I heard a product very similar is sold at Wal Mart in the Automotive section – I’m going to try there first. Is it like a chamois? Can you clean the ink spots or are they like the sponges reuse over and over again in one color.

  8. Great card, fun video! I always love visiting with you while you are stamping.
