That's right, I have a never before seen tool that you may only see on this blog. Depends, tho...if you are crafty enough you just might see one on your craft table as early as tonight!

What is this crafty lil device? Well, for those of you who are reading and not scrolling down to see pics first, I'll tell you.

Last night I finally got my new SU! order. It's the A Good Egg set and the Spring Fling DP. So I told Greg I needed a StampaMaJig. Like any other Stamping Husband he knew just what the heck I meant.

Yeah Right.

So I tried to explain to him what it was and possibly he could make me one. OK, show me a picture said Mr. Crafty. ;)

Well, today I had to ink that set up and I wanted to play around with it, so I thought, man I need that StampaMaJig now!!! LOL... like everything else.

So I scoured my room and found some whittling wood (B/c you know I needed that once too!) and I nailed one end to a smaller black and Viola! My own Stampa MaJig.

Call me Cheap or call me was free and I can use it!!

I can easly lay the plastic sheets up next to it to see if it's OK! (BTW...yep, I've scrounged for some lame plastic sheet covers to use!! LOL)
And here I was able to line it up perfect. Well, after a few tries and I realized I was stamping it upside down than what I stamped on the sheet. Ugh.
So I give you the Hick Chick StampaMaJig (Stole the name from Cowboy Troy)

Enjoy...please let me know if you would like to buy the rights to this... :oP
OK and seriously, why did SU! put 2 sentiment stamps on one know that it's gonna be messed up somewhere!! Geesh. So I was more crafty and cut them out and put one on one side and one on the other. And I put them on this way b.c it's easier to hold the block than putting the words the other way.

Then I played for real...making this cute lil card.
And with the egg top on...

Bwaaaaahaaaaahaaaaaaa!!! Love the hand-made stampamajig :-) I have a brand new one that is still in the box. I've taken it out to look at it but I'm too lazy to try to figure it out. Why would I want to stamp the same thing more than once? My stamping is *always* perfectly placed the first time ;-)

Dana said...

LOL! Can I have one! Make that 2 since I always misplace things :) ROTFL

Lorie said...

LOL! I love your hick stamp a ma jig! Why pay for it if you don't have too? SUPER cute card too!

Ashley said...

LOL I LOVE IT! That is too funny. The card is super cute too. I gotta get some easter ones done too.

Amber Porter said...

Stampin' Up! Gal said...

LOL!! I love your hick stampamajig!! Well done!!! hehe

Fabrizio said...

Stampin'Up Gal told me about your homemade you're very inventive. Also like the idea of having the sentiment stamp on both side of the wooden block. Your cards are beautiful by the way.

I had stopped and wondered why SU had done that too!! I actually haven't bought anything that was double mounted because I knew something would be messed up! Thanks for the idea!
