Stamparatus, ink pads and embossing powder

Sharing with you the versatility of the stamparatus!

Stamparatus embossing technique

1. Place your stamps on your cardstock where you want to stamp. Bring the stamparatus plate over to pick up your stamp.  I have used the dandelion wishes stamp to show you this technique.  I held off getting them as my wish list is long, but they have now made it to the crafting cave.

2. Ink your stamp with the base colour ink (in this case crumb cake), and stamp.

3. Keeping the stamp in place, and your cardstock, ink up your stamp with versamark, and stamp again. No need to fuss around trying to line it up by sight, you have it perfectly placed on the stamparatus.

4. Remove your cardstock, sprinkle over some clear embossing powder then heat set.

This is what you get when you combine the stamparatus, coloured ink pad, versamark and clear embossing powder.

A perfect dandelion and hopefully you can see the embossing
