Stamp­ing tools have rev­o­lu­tionised stamp­ing, al­low­ing ev­ery­one to achieve great re­sults, every time! One of the great­est ben­e­fits to us­ing the Stamp Plat­form is if you don’t get a great im­pres­sion the first time you stamp, it’s easy to re-ink and stamp again to get the de­sired re­sult. But that’s not the only thing this plat­form is use­ful for!

This Stamp Plat­form is es­pe­cially great for peo­ple with dex­ter­ity prob­lems as they make it easy for ev­ery­one to stamp us­ing any size stamp. The plat­form has open sides to the right and bottom edges mean­ing that you can stamp on any size pa­per in­clud­ing 12x12 and it’ll still eas­ily fit on your desk.

Other things worth not­ing with this plat­form are: a mag­netic catch on the re­mov­able top door (mak­ing it easy to re­po­si­tion and clean), bold clear and rub­ber mark­ings to the top (just flip it around to suit your stamp), a mag­netic base, plus a foam back with non-slip feet that make for a sta­ble sur­face to work with. And that’s just the be­gin­ning! There are so many pos­i­tives to this plat­form and I love us­ing it. It would make a great ad­di­tion to any stam­per’s stash!

1 Po­si­tion snowflake stamps onto the Stamp Plat­form and stamp with pink ink onto a 135mm square of white card. Clean stamps and stamp again with blue ink onto another 135mm square of white card.

2 Clean and re­po­si­tion the stamps to fill the card. Stamp the pink panel again with pink ink. Clean and re­peat on the blue ink card. Re­peat un­til both pieces of card are stamped all over.

4 Dip the edges of the stamped panels in navy ink. Die-cut four 70mm cir­cles from white card. Roll all the edges through a navy ink pad to ac­cent. At­tach two white cir­cles to­gether with a stamped cir­cle on top.

5 Wrap the stamped panel with ribbon and at­tach to a 148mm square base cov­ered with co­or­di­nat­ing pa­per. Fill the aperture with the op­po­site stamped colour. Stamp and heat em­boss sen­ti­ment in sil­ver.
