Stamparatus!!!!! RESERVE YOURS

Stamparatus 2

It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it! I'm super excited about this new tool - I was part of a LEADER TO LEADER program that had a say in it's development and it was a long process. I'm over the moon to see the Stamparatus available early!!! While there are other products on the market that have the same idea in mind - this one is JUST AMAZING!!!! The features and the double windows are going to rock my inky world! Check out the video to see for yourself:

 

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

Stamparatus

  Stamparatus4

Stamparatus_02

Stamparatus_03

I need product details!

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas
  • Retail Price–$49.00

 

 

 

OKAY. I’VE GOTTA HAVE ONE. HOW DO I GET IN LINE?

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 
  • You and your customers may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

HOW TO RESERVE YOUR STAMPARATUS TUTORIAL 

Customer Stamparatus Launch Q & A
 
Q:  How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A:  Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; in this case, you will click the RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page. For step-by-step instructions, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial posted above.
 
Q: What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?
A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, watch this QUICK VIDEO and then you can create an account in my online store.
 
Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.
 
Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.
 
Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart in your online account. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment and close your order, the system will charge your credit card.
 
Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?
A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.
 
Q: Will I be able to update my address and credit card information when I open my shopping bag to complete my order?
A: Yes.
 
Q: What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?
A: You can cancel your reservation at any time. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers above.
 
Q: Will the tool be available in the 2018–2019 annual catalog?
A: Yes. Once the annual catalog ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the number of tools you can order.
 
Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?
A: Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability depending on demand.
 
Q: When I close my order, can I take advantage of current Stampin’ Up! promotions?
A: Yes.
 
Q: Can I participate in all three reservation periods?
A: Yes.
 
Q: How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window?
A: There is a limit of 1 per reservation window.
 
Q: How did we come up with the name Stamparatus?
A: We landed on an innovative name by combining two words that speak to the end use of the tool as well as Stampin’ Up! branding. Stamp: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked block or die or other instrument Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a particular activity or purpose
 
Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus

 

RESERVE YOURS....

Starting Thursday, November 16th at 2:00 pm MT you can reserve your Stamparatus. If you happen to be in my Online Store before 2:00 pm you will need to refresh your screen after 2:00 pm to see the RESERVE button.

A Joke

 

A Doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa ...  
 
“The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago.
 
Red meat is awful.  Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining.  Chinese food is loaded with MSG.
 
High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.  However, there is one thing that’s the most dangerous of all and we all have eaten, or will eat it..
 
Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?”
 
After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, “Wedding Cake.”

Wine Anyone?

  DSCN0424w

 Who's up for some wine? Isn't this a cute card? I made it with the HALF FULL stamp set. This is a stamp set designed by my friend Linda for hitting her million dollars in sales. While it has some Christmas greetings in it - it's really good for the whole year and how many wine loving friends do you have?

www.AStampAbove.com

 I used the Black marker to FLICK the ink at my card to make the speckled background.

www.AStampAbove.com

My Aqua Painter and ink from the lids of the stamp pads was a great way to color these images in. I used Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Smokey Slate.

Acetate Card Box Cutting & Scoring: 

  • Powder Pink – 2 ¼” x 11”
  • Powder Pink – 2 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Very Vanilla – 2 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Merry Patterns DSP – 2” x 11”
  • Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon – 14 ½”

Acetate Box Instructions:

  • Construct the Acetate Card Box by creasing on the score lines and tucking in the flaps.
  • Using a wedge of the Stamping Sponge, add Crumb Cake ink to the front and sides of the designer paper.  Add just enough color to make the paper appear aged.  Using a different wedge of sponge, add Powder Pink ink to the sides of the designer paper.
  • Adhere the designer paper to the Powder Pink cardstock strip to create a bellyband.  Wrap the bellyband around the box, creasing along the edges of the box.  Adhere the raw ends to the backside using Tear & Tape Adhesive. 
  • Adhere a silver Foil Snowflake to the center of the bellyband by placing adhesive in the center. 
  • Stamp the greeting using Basic Gray Archival ink on the Very Vanilla 2 ½” x 3 ½” piece of cardstock.  Ink one of the snowflakes using Powder Pink ink. Stamp off on scratch paper then stamp over the upper left side of the greeting. Repeat this step, adding another snowflake in the lower right corner of the greeting. Die cut the greeting using the appropriate size Layering Ovals Framelit in the Big Shot. Sponge the edges of the oval using both the Powder Pink and the Crumb Cake sponges.
  • Die cut a scallop oval using the Layering Ovals Framelits and the Big Shot. Use the Powder Pink 2 ½” x 3 ½” cardstock.  Select a scallop oval size slightly larger than the Very Vanilla oval. Adhere the Very Vanilla oval to the Powder Pink oval. 
  • Zig zag the ribbon across the center of the Foil Snowflake. Use Dimensionals to adhere the greeting over the ribbon.  Place the Dimensionals across the center and to the top and bottom of the oval. 
  • Add a Clear Faceted Gem to the left side of the word “Merry” on the oval. 
  • Place completed cards and envelopes into the Acetate Card Box.
