Have you seen the best stamp platform for easy stamping & card making? Let me share the Stamparatus & show you some beautiful cards!

Springtime brings lots of Iris blooms to my yard!  So, when my husband cut some and put them in a vase in the house I was inspired to make a card using the best stamp platform ~ the Stamparatus by Stampin’ Up!   

The color of the Iris’s in my yard right now are more like Merry Merlot!  So I started making cards using Merry Merlot, Gorgeous Grape and Daffodil Delight!

Inspiring Iris is a two step stamp set so I knew that the Stamparatus was the card making tool to use that would give me fantastic results!  

What I did next made me LOVE this set!  I didn’t stamp the outline image, just the flowers and leaves and really made it abstract and the stamp platform made the process seamless!  Can you see the Wink of Stella on the flowers?

Merry Merlot it is!  These are the colors of the ones in my kitchen and yard!  The Coastal Weave Embossing folder was chosen for this card.  


Gorgeous Grape was used on this card for the flowers and the cardstock layer that was embossed with Tufted 3D Embossing Folder!

Want to remember the best stamp platform to use for seamless stamping?  Pin the image below!



  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″
  • Merry Merlot, Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight Cardstock – 4″ x 5 1/4
  • Scrap of Whisper White for flowers and sentiment layers

Stitched Rectangle Dies are truly my go to dies!  They can be used over and over again for images and sentiments!

As I show on my video I talk about using the Stamparatus to help you line up two step stamps like Inspiring Iris!  Especially if you don’t get the entire image stamped the first time.  Just add more ink and stamp again like I did on the flower part of the Iris!
