Tuesday Tool - Stampin' Up! Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (Perfect Stamp Placement EveryTime!)

Good Morning Everyone! Today's Tuesday Tool is the Stampin' Up! Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  Use it to get the perfect alignment with your stamps every time. The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig has a nonskid base and includes a reusable, wipe-clean imaging sheet for easy placement.

Features & Benefits
  • Allows for fast and precise stamp placement 
  • Lets you place an image exactly where you want it, every time
  • Perfect for word and letter stamps
  • Sturdy plastic construction
  • Includes washable plastic sheet 
  • Black color exclusive to Stampin’ Up!
  • Nonskid base Includes instructions


The Stamp-a-ma-jig comes with two pieces: the Stamp-a-ma-jig handle and the plastic imaging sheet. The handle has a T-shaped top portion, which makes it easy for right-handed stampers and left-handed stampers. Instructions are included with the Stamp-a-ma-jig, but here’s a basic overview to help you understand how it works.

1. Align the plastic sheet in the T-shaped top of the Stamp-a-ma-jig, making sure that the corner of the sheet is placed squarely into one corner of the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
2. Stamp your image on the sheet, placing the stamp squarely in the corner of the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
3. Place the stamped plastic sheet on your project where you want the stamped image to be.
4. Keeping the plastic sheet in place, place the Stamp-a-ma-jig on the stamped corner of the plastic sheet.
5. While holding the Stamp-a-ma-jig in place, remove the plastic sheet, place the stamp in the corner of the Stamp-a-ma-jig, and stamp on your project.

If you have a favorite set that needs the Stamp-a-ma-jig, you can make permanent image sheets to keep in the stamp case. Cut Window Sheets into small squares and stamp images from that set on the sheets using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and StazOn ink. Put those Window Sheets in the stamp case, and then when you go to stamp, you already have your stamps lined up on the Window Sheets.

Try It Thursday - Stampin' Up! Festival of Trees Christmas Card and Tutorial

Good Morning Everyone! My Try It Share is a Christmas Card created with the Stampin' Up! Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating Tree Punch. This is one of my favorite sets in the Holiday Catalog 2014. I used the Stampin' Up! Filigree Frame Textured Embossing Folder for the background and  I embellished with Pearls and Real Red Satin Ribbon. Because the Festival of Trees is a photopolymer stamp set, you can easily achieve 2-step stamping with ease! The really fun part was creating the die cut Joy sentiment using the Stampin' Up! Little Letters Thinlits Dies. Keep reading below to see a tutorial on how you can achieve this with other words as well.

Card Measurements:
Real Red Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Old Olive Card Layer: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Whisper White Card Layer: 5 1/4" x 4"

Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Real Red

Stamp: Festival of Trees

Accessories: Filigree Frame Textured Embossing Folder, Little Letters Thinlits Dies, Big Shot, Tree Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (Star)Real Red Satin Ribbon, Pearls

Little Letters Die Cut Words On Cards Tutorial

1. Fold your card stock at 5 1/2"x 4 1/4". Lay the Card Base on the Big Shot using this sandwich: Magnetic Platform, Clear Plate, Card Base. Spell out the word you want to die using the Little Letter Thinlits Dies and place them on edge of the fold on the Card Base. Use Washi Tape to hold the letters in place.

2. Place the remaining Clear Plate on the Big Shot Sandwich right above the edge of the letters. Do not cover the letters entirely with the plate or they will all be cut out.

3. Run the Big Shot Sandwich through the machine and your Card Base should look like this.

4. Gently push each of the letters up along the edge and fold your Card Base to create a card.

5. Decorate your card!

Happy Stamping!
