As a Stampin' Up! demo, often times we get to order products prior to being released to the public. The Stamparatus was one of those perks for being a demo. We got to order this in December and I received it last week. These will be available in the 2018-2019 Annual catalog. These are great for lining up stamps to get the best image. I have had my project in my mind for awhile and with the Stamparatus it makes it SO MUCH easier!!!
We have several framelits, thinlits and such in our catalog. I am still focused on my Lemon Zest stamp set and punch. With the popularity of essential oils, I thought it would be fun to make some DIY air fresheners. My daughter gave me a stack of chipboard coasters a long time ago and I have been waiting for the "perfect" project. Well, this is it!!! I stamped approximately 3 times for each image. I used the Lemon and Mandarin essential oils. I bought mine at Walmart. They were located in the candle section for your reference. I loved how the Stitched circle framelit fit it perfectly to cut out!! Please don't use your Lemon Builder punch as these are too thick and will end up breaking your punch. I also bought Pine essential oil and I want to make some Christmas trees with our Perfect Pines framelits at Christmas time!!!
This is how I used it on my Stamparatus after cutting it our with the Stitched circle framelit. I flipped it over and stamped on the back.
I just applied 3-4 drops of the oil on the backside on the image (if you don't want to stamp both side). I then used my 1/4 inch circle punch so I could insert the ribbon. I still had some 3 x 3 cellophane bags and placed them inside for packaging. Our regular clear envelopes also work great for these too.
I hope I was able to inspire you in some way and I hope you give this a try!!!
Thanks for stopping!!
