Coming soon to a Spotlight near you. The fantastic Push & Print Stamp Factory will be available in late April, early May.
Fiskars has a brand new award winning tool- it's called the Push & Print Stamp factory. There are also special ink pads made for it and stamp sets as well. However any acrylic stamp will work with this wonderful tool.
This tool works just like any other self-inking stamp, except much better! The ink pads and stamps can be removed and changed so that this tool can help you stamp, stamp, stamp to your hearts content. The possibilities for creative fun are endless, and the tool is simple and easy to use.
There are grooves on the back of the stamp pads where you can insert into the tool, and likewise the stamping plate has grooves and it slides in and out of the tool for cleaning or stamp placement.
In addition to the easily removable plate and ink pads, there are two spots where you can lock the plate in place. The first allows you to remove and/or change the ink pad. The second locks so that the stamping surface is facing down and you can position it over your paper, remove stamps, or anything else you need to do. To release simply press in on the sides (where blue levers are that keep it locked).
To use the push & print Stamp Factory you can either place stamps on the plate directly, or place them on a piece of paper and have the tool pick them up for you!
When inking multiple stamps sometimes it is helpful to press the plates together a little extra.
Once you have the stamp and ink set up you can stamp again, and again, and again!
To show you this new and exciting tool in action here are projects from our design team.

When the new Fiskars Stamp Factory stopped by my house in Florida for a few days – I had SO much fun putting it right to use. The Join the Party stamp set is perfect for creating fun little celebratory-themed accents that you can use for your next party, or get together. I used the Join the Party stamp set – along with the stamp factory and silver ink pad that fits right into the factory – to create these fun drink markers… also known as “cocktail jewelry”!
To create your own, simply choose a stamp design or 2 or 3 and set them up in the Stamp Factory tool with the ink color you’d like to use. Stamp your design onto cardstock or a solid side of a patterned paper. Either punch or trim your design from the cardstock, and then mount onto a larger punched shape, or punchboard accent. Use foam adhesive for added dimension. Embellish your cocktail jewelry with rhinestones for added glitz. Use the 1/8 circle handheld punch to punch a hole in each drink marker – tie with ribbon – and your cocktail jewelry will be ready to be “worn” at your next party!

I love stamped borders and the Push & Print Stamp Factory is great to make quick work of a stamped border. Just line up your stamp with the edge and stamp away. No fumbling with ink or messy fingers! …it’s a lot of fun too!
To create this layout start by stamping the swirly border around the kraft cardstock using the Push & Print Stamp Factory. Then add 3 different - 5” x 7” papers to the center of the kraft cardstock background and then add the photo. Trim around a 2” blue cardstock circle with scalloped paper edgers (I formatted and printed text in a circle using Word before I punched the cardstock). Add number or letter sticker to the center of the circle.
Embellish upper right corner and lower left corner of layered papers with glitter flower and a stitched button. Stamp additional designs on the layout and add title with alpha stickers. Finally print journaling onto blue cardstock and add just above photo.

I love party favor bags – it’s just so fun to bring together a collection of sweet little treats to say “thank you!!” to your party guests. I wanted to make these bags extra special, so I grabbed some of my favorite scrap goodies to create my own! I started with simple brown paper lunch bags and added patterned paper and ribbon from Cloud 9’s Sunrise Smoothie and Heidi Grace’s Baby lines.
I trimmed the pink & striped patterned paper into rectangles and then punched green and floral patterned paper with Round N Round and Seal of Approval Squeeze Punches. I adhered them all together on the bags as shown and set them out in my own little assembly line. I positioned stamps from Fiskars’ How Many Candles? And Cookies, Cake, Ice Cream sets where I wanted them, and then popped the clear block out of the Push and Print Stamp Factory and laid it over the stamps.
I love that the block pops out like this – it makes it so easy to get your stamps perfectly lined up. I slide the stamp block back into the Push and Print Stamp Factory and added the ink pad. Then came the fun part – I ran down my line of assembled papers and stamped each one. I had the stamping done in no time and was ready to fill the bags with goodies. To finish each bag, I tied it shut with some ribbon threaded through punched circles.
Supply list: Fiskars Push and Print Stamp Factory, How many candles and Cookies, cake, ice cream clear stamp sets, Chocoholic ink, Round n Round L & XL squeeze punches, Seal of Approval L & XL Squeeze punches, ¼ in circle hand punch, scallop decorative edgers, Cloud 9 Sunrise Smoothie patterned paper,

This “thank you” card is full of movement & style! I wanted to create a card that was fun & funky to put a smile on someone’s face. Here’s how to combine stamping and punches into a one-of-a-kind greeting.
First, I stamped multiple images using the Fiskars Push & Print Stamp Factory, Fiskars pigment inks, and Fiskars Gracias, Merci, Grazi stamps. I cut out each circular image using the Ultra Shapexpress, and added jump rings to make a “chain” of circles in each color. Next, I created a window for chains using the Fiskars Threading Water Punch, and the Ultra Shapexpress. Bright flowers give the card a colorful, happy vibe!
Supplies- Fiskars Push & Print Stamp Factory, Fiskars Pigment Inks, Fiskars Gracias, Merci, Grazi stamps, Fiskars Threading Water border punch, Fiskars Oopsie Daisy punch, Other: Cardstock, jump rings

I love that the Stamp Factory can churn out stamp designs in a snap! For this Baby Keepsake Frame, I set up several arrangements on the stamp plate of these adorable baby stamps – including Fiskars newest sets: The Stork Has Arrived and Bottles & Blankets. Since my images were all being stamped in a single color, I found it saved me considerable time. I also noticed that using the Stamp Factory kept me from getting inky fingers which sometimes end up making my stamp designs a mess!
Once I’d stamped everything, I colored the images with colored pencils and cut the white cardstock to fit the spaces on my painted plaque. Use Adhesive Foam Dots to give dimension to the photo or stamped images that have been cut out.
Supply List- Fiskars Brands: Stamp Factory, Clear Stamps – The Stork Has Arrived, Clear Stamps – Bottles and Blankets, Clear Stamps – Sweet Pea, Non Stick No. 5 Micro-Tip® Scissors, Desktop Rotary Trimmer, 28 mm Scallop Rotary Blade – Blade Style F, 12 x 12 Craft Mat, Fingertip Craft Knife, Medium Squeeze Punch - Round n’ Round, Pop-Up Punch – Circle, tape Runner (adhesive), Adhesive Foam Dots, Cloud 9 Design: Travel Passport to Adventure, Heidi Grace Designs: We Are Family Décor Words, Heidi Grace Designs: We Are Family Pinstripe, Heidi Grace Designs: We Are Family Trees In A Row, Other: 12 x 12 wood craft plaque; acrylic paint; colored pencils

When you are planning a bridal shower, one of the critical to-do items is the invitation. This shower invitation is fun, unexpected, and simple enough that you can crank out a huge pile of them in a short period of time. The Fiskars Stamp Factory is the key to reproducing your bridal shower invitations quickly and precisely. Once you set up the stamps on the plate, just let the Stamp Factory do its self-inking magic, each invitation will be just like the one before (or after) it and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ve made your invites!
I added a punched border and some machine stitching to this, but depending on the size of your party, you might want to step it up a bit by layering some punched borders. As far as the stitching goes, it adds a great hand-crafted element to the card, but it’s not necessary. Either way, once you’ve done the super-simple stamping with the Stamp Factory, it’s up to you to decide how much fluff to add.
To create the pocket envelope, I cut a 4 ½” X 12” piece of black cardstock, folded it in half and creased it, then I unfolded it until a bit later. Before I stitched the sides together, I created the front of the card. I live in a college town and many brides use maroon for their wedding colors, so I chose this patterned paper from the Heidi Grace Midnight Kisses collection.
To create the insert, I cut a piece of black cardstock 3 ¾” X 6”, trimmed the top corners with the Chip Off the Ol’ Block Corner Punch, punched a circle, and folded it in half across the top of the insert. I punched a hole in the top with the ¼” inch circle Hand Punch, and tied a black ribbon through it. Cut the same patterned paper to 3 ¼” X 4 ¾”, adhere. Arrange the stamps on the Stamp Factory plate and stamp the insert image. Fill in with a bit of marker if you like, adhere, and write in the party info.
