Altenew March 2023 Stampwheel Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome! Today we’re celebrating the Altenew Stampwheel Release! If you arrived from visiting Therese Calvird, you’re right on track. If you’d like to start from the top, please visit the Altenew Blog. Check the bottom of this post for giveaway information and the full blog hop list.

As soon as I saw the Stampwheel, I knew it was going to replace my current system for stamping layered florals using multiple stamping platforms. I learned early in my stamping days that there’s a pretty good chance I’ll mess up my layered stamped image on the very last layer. I’ll either pick a funky color, or I’ll do a bad job of lining up the final layer, or I’ll smudge the ink; you get the idea. To save myself the frustrating of having to line up the layers all over again, I started using multiple stamp positioning tools, putting one layer in each tool and stamping in assembly line fashion. This also made it easy to mass produce.

With the new Stampwheel, though, instead of using four or more stamp positioning tools, I can use just one!

For my stamping, I used images from the Beautiful Day and Build-A-Flower Wild Rose stamp sets.

I started off by placing a piece of white cardstock into the corner of the stage (the stage is the base). Within the stage is a large clear sticky mat. This mat is unlike other sticky mats; it’s like a giant clear stamp! The sticky mat does a fantastic job of holding the cardstock in place. No magnets needed!

Then I positioned the outline layers of each bloom over the cardstock and put the flip plate (that’s the clear round plate) into place to pick up the stamps. I flipped the plate over, inked up the stamps, and then replaced the flip plate into the stage to stamp.

Next, I removed the flip plate, cleaned the stamps but left them in place, and positioned the next layer of each bloom over the stamped outline. I repositioned the flip plate, this time picking up the second layer stamps with the opposite side of the plate. Then I inked the stamps, stamped down, and repeated twice more, each time rotating the flip plate to pick up the stamps with a free part of the flip plate. Since I only stamped four layers, I just rotated the flip plate 90 degrees, flipped, and rotated again. But I were stamping more layers, I could easily have rotated fewer degrees and accommodated many more layers on a single plate!

By the time I got to the fourth layer, my flip plate looked like this:

Now that all four layers of the blooms were set up on the flip plate, I was able to easily stamp more flowers and change up the colors as I went!

I really hope you’ll enjoy finding fun ways to use this versatile new Altenew Stampwheel tool!
