Stamparatus Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the official Stampin' Up Stamparatus Blog Hop! I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful group. If you've been following me for a while, you've probably seen me use the Stamparatus quite a bit. Since receiving it, it's became a staple in almost every project I make!

I decided to show you my favorite use for the Stamparatus- Background stamps! The Stamparatus makes stamping with these large stamps so easy! You can rein and stamp it several times to create a dark solid image. In my project today, I not only stamped it in black, but also in Versamark to create a "sheen" across the whole image.
Because I was using the motorcycle as my focal point, I wanted a background that coordinates. I thought the marbled background could give us the look of oil you might see on the floor of a garage! Below is the photo I used for inspiration. 


Unfortunately, I just could not capture the shiny texture with my camera. But, you'll be able to see it better int he video hopefully. 

I love to use the Stamparatus for background stamps, but as you've seen in this hop, there are many other ways to use this amazing tool. I also used it to create movement with my motorcycle and to stamp my sentiment.

This is a great "dude" card and is a great project to try out several different uses of your Stamparatus. I hope you enjoyed it and will give it a try!
