Summary:

Clear out a space on your stamping table because Tim Holtz’s Stamp Platform by Tonic Studios is going to change your stamping life! This easy to use platform is engineered to ensure stamping perfection and makes layered stamping a breeze. You’re going to wonder how you’ve been stamping for so long without it!

The platform is for use with your clear or rubber cling stamps; the switchable acrylic hinged lid is marked one side for clear and the reverse side for rubber! The gridlines on the lid help you easily align your stamps, so that you can ensure that your stamped impressions are straight every time on your projects. The platform features a non-slip base to prevent any movement while you’re working and has an open outer edge allowing you to use sheets of paper up to 12” x 12”.

So, in what ways can you creatively use this platform? Use it as a tool when using your clear or rubber stamps to create cards, pages, tags layouts, and other paper crafting projects. Try creating a layered water colored look by using Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Inks (sold separately). The Stamp Platform is perfect for any mixed media project that you have in mind!

How to use for clear or rubber stamps:

  • Select your paper (cardstock, watercolor, smooth, or mixed media)
  • Lift the acrylic lid and choose either the clear or rubber side and replace the lid
  • Align your paper up with the raised guides located on the edges of the magnetic base
  • Place your magnets on opposite sides of the paper to secure your paper (keep magnets separated)
  • Place your stamp on your paper, face down, on your desired location
  • Close the lid so that your stamp adheres to the lid
  • Open the lid and choose your ink and ink up your stamp
  • Close the lid again and apply pressure to your stamp
  • Lift the lid to reveal your stamped image.
  • Repeat for multiples of the same project or remove paper by taking off magnets

How to use for water coloring:

  • Choose your watercolor cardstock
  • Place your paper on the magnetic surface, securing it with the magnets
  • Choose your stamp and place it in your desired location on your cardstock
  • Close the lid to transfer the stamp from your paper to the lid
  • Choose your favorite Tim Holtz Distress Markers (sold separately)
  • Add color to the stamp and lightly spray with water
  • Close the lid and apply pressure to the stamp
  • Open the lid, wipe color off the stamp with a Stamp Shammy and apply your next color
  • Continue to add color to achieve a layered look on your project
  • When finished, use your heat tool to dry stamped image

How to clean the Stamp Platform:

  • Choose your stamp cleaner or Stamp Shammy (solvent, hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes and more)
  • Do not use acetone or nail polish remover on the surface
  • Rub gently with a cloth until clean

The Stamp Platform is designed solely with stampers in mind! Just think about how much paper you’re going to save with this tool. If you have a large project of multiples, the platform is going to ensure that you have accurate positioning every time and the clean-up is always a breeze!

Be sure to check out the Storage Zipper Sleeve making it easy to store your Stamp Platform (ton-1710e) for on-the-go stamping and the Replacement Magnets (ton-1709e), each are sold separately. You can get the Stamp Platform and Sleeve TOGETHER here!

  • Great product, high quality, easy to use!

    In true Tim Holtz and Tonic Studios fashion, they teamed up to create an amazing product. The Stamp Platform is durable, high quality, easy to use, cleans up beautifully and allows you to stamp larger projects without damaging the paper. The magnets are super strong and kept my paper in place every time. The alignment guides and rulers took the guesswork out of the card making process. I was very impressed with how easy it was to switch between acrylic stamps and cling mounted rubber stamps. The hinge worked beautifully and stamped a clean impression every time, making repeat stamping a breeze. LOVE THIS PRODUCT! The perfect gift for friends that stamp.

  • Perfect Layered Imagess Everytime!!!

    True confession: I'm the worlds worst stamper! So when Tonic and Misti hit the scene, I was so excited about buying one of them. After researching both, I decided that Tim Holtz's platform was the perfect choice for me. I'm super impressed with Tim's no fuss dual purpose design (cards and layouts) and the quality of its construction is honestly a vintage throwback to the old rotary phones! The magnets are thick and strong. They don't pinch my fingers or seem prone to breakage. It's definitely not a 'me too' tool and I could go on and on about its thoughtful design, ease of use, superior quality and excellent value. I especially love that it's designed in a way that it doesn't require any consumables to remain useful. I also love the fact that I can use spray inks without worrying about clean-up or damaging the plastic plates. Even thought its sturdy and hefty, its light weight enough to easily stash in my card class tote or take on a crop. I'm amazed at how easy it is to create remarkably detailed images perfectly, layer after layer, color after color, press after press! The Stamp Platform by Tim Holtz has exceeded all of my expectations, put the fun back into stamping for me and its by far the most useful tool I've purchased in a long, long time! If you love stamping, this tool will not disappoint!

  • I am a loyal MISTI fan.....

    Having said that, I will also say that I am a Tim Holtz fan. While his distressed style doesn't appeal to me, many other things do. As I waited to see how the functional differences between MISTI and Tim's stamping platform shook out, I can see there are enough differences between the two tools that I'm thinking they probably settled the patent issue, possibly was a settlement and thus the Tonic platform was allowed to ship again. And I bought one. It is a heavy-duty tool, make no mistake - solid construction, hinges aren't plastic.... And it is bigger than my MISTI (I bought the first one) and yes, I can use the new platform do stamps right on 12x12 pages. I had no intention of buying a new MISTI to do that. As for stamp quality, the two tools are virtually the same EXCEPT that I do find the MISTI to be easier to use at this point and that could be just because I am so familiar with it.

    In closing I will say that I will not be lugging the Tonic platform to crops when my light little MISTI does just fine!

  • Worth the wait!

    Sturdy, well designed, with great attention to detail for the things that matter most to stampers.
    -Sharp stamping
    -Ease of cleaning
    -Ability to be able to spray wet media without damaging any of the surfaces (I've only experimented with light mists just in case)
    -Very intuitive
    -Ability to stamp using rubber or clear stamps
    -Strong magnets
    -Well designed hinge mechanism

    I have a clear stamp that has a lot of detail and it was hard to get a clean impression. After looking at the stamp closely, it appears to be thinner than regular clear stamps. Placing a couple of pieces of paper underneath did the trick. This appears to be an isolated case with this one particular stamp because the others in the set stamped fine.

    I'm delighted with my purchase and it was well worth the wait!

  • Fantastic

    Received this wonderful product yesterday and love it!
    Strong and well made, should last forever. Works perfectly and would give it a 10 star review if I could....cost delayed me, a few moments but it is worth every cent. Happy I got it, before you were out of stock....appreciated the email letting me know when they became in-stock. The Misty is way too expensive and this Stamp Platform is right on the mark...great job Mr Holtz!
    Fast shipping, thanks.....
