Welcome to the Remarkable Creative Blog Hop. Today we are doing cards for children. I thought I would do something a little different.  Be sure to watch this video. It contains information you need to know. The Stamparatus has a problem.

The Stamparatus has a problem.


Consider yourself informed.

Part of this story is very true. As she was using my Stamparatus to make her cards I really was feeling like a kid that wanted my toy back. I think the Stamparatus has a problem. It is additive. So let’s look at some of the cards she made.

We first started playing with punches and embellishments.No inks, no stamping, just having fun.

SU Calipillar, No Stampin, no ink, Stamparatus has a problem. #stampinup30,

Easy enough for your young crafter to make. ATTENTION teachers

We use the 1 1/2″ circle punch (138299), the Faceted Dot (146910), for his eyes and the clear Faceted Gems (144142). Quick and easy.

Kids crafts, #stampinUp30,

Using smaller circles We felt he looked more real. We also used the 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch (146139) making this project even better. .

At this point we had made about 3 of each of these little guys and this is when I made the mistake of teaching her to use the Stamparatus.

Hand Delivered hostess set, #stampinup30, #stampatatus, nre 2018-2020 in colors,  #Papercraftsbyelaine.com,

Hand Delivered is a hostess reward stamp. For $150 in sales, prior to shipping and tax, you can get this awesome stamp set for $13. She plans to give this one to her music teach who will not be returning next year. (so sad)

The beginning of “The Stamparatus has a Problem”

Using the Stamparatus, I taught her how easy it is to make this awesome card above using the Hand Delivered hostess set. (146808). This stamp set can be yours for only $13 with any $150 order. That means you can ask your friends to order and when it reaches $150 the Hand Delivered stamp set can be yours. There are other ways to get this awesome stamp set. You can hostess a virtual or home show. Once your sales are at $150 you can choose the Hand Delivered set. Place your order now by Clicking Here

An now the problem begins:

Pick a Pennent, Animal Outing SU, #stampinup30, Stamparatus project, Kids projects, Making cards with kids.

Combining Animal Outing and Pick a Pennant on the Stamparatus makes this an easy project.

With almost no help she designed this awesome card using all 4 sides of the Stamparatus plates. For only 8 years old, I think she did an awesome job. One thing is for sure, if she can use the Stamparatus, you can too. Just remember it is additive, and can cause you to regress into your childish ways. WANTING TO PLAY again.

I’m not sure if the Stamparatus has a problem or if it is the awesome way it makes your paper crafts look. Just in case, order one for a friend. Click Here
