Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m going to share with you one of the cards that we did at our Stamparatus Class this week. Lord I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to see my stamping friends again! ❤ In Person!!
The “Hinge Technique” is probably the most popular technique that you can learn with your Stamparatus but there are so many other tips and techniques to learn, if perfect placement isn’t enough reason to buy one!! Like Sandy said last night …. there is nothing worse than creating a beautiful card and then stamping your sentiment crooked, even if it’s on the inside 😦
I created this design not only to show how easy it is to use the hinge technique, but how easy it was to switch out colors … even if you were making multiple cards ….
I used the filigree border from the Borders Abound stamp set and aligned it onto my cardstock and then picked up the stamp with my plate … now you’re ready to stamp!
The colors used are Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, and Coastal Cabana …. each color was achieved by moving the plate down hinge by hinge.
Then flip your plate or use the second one and place your sentiment onto the cardstock … pick it up with your plate and begin stamping your sentiment/greeting.
I added the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to add some texture and fun to the card. Using the tulle allows you to see the stamped images but still gives you the texture you want on the card ….
Isn’t that cute! This is one of my favorite ribbons for this reason, and because you can dye it any color you want. It’s a must have in your stamping supplies.
Another must have is your Stamparatus …. it helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.
Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like some help ordering your Stamparatus! The first video will be “how to”create today’s card using the Hinge Technique! Then more videos to follow: Layering for best results, using “templates” for quick -n- easy card making and more!
Thank you so much for joining me today! Its a steamy one here, stay cool, stay safe!
Have a good day ~
