So Very Merry Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Wow … Yesterdays blog post was full of amazing announcements! Today I’d like to share the photos and video from my Facebook LIVE demonstration on “How to emboss any color ink” and the Stamparatus “Hinge” technique!

Today’s card was embossed in Real Red and Old Olive …

I used the Stamparatus to align my words perfectly straight and even. The video will show you how to align your stamp on the stamparatus plate. The Whisper White piece of cardstock measures 5″ x 3-3/4″, the Old Olive is 5-3/8″ x 3-7/8″ and the Real Red measures 5-1/4″ x 4-1/8″ and the A2 card base = 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.

Watch and see how I emboss the two different colors and layer my cardstock ….

So how do you like the simple instructions on “how to” apply your stamps to your Stamparatus plates? If you enjoy these tips, I invite you to join me each Tuesday on Facebook LIVE!!

I cut my ribbon about 6-1/2″ – 7″ so that I have enough ribbon to wrap around the back of the card… cut your smaller pieces long enough to tie, usually 4″ – 5″ in length. The ribbon is the “All the Trimmings” Ribbon Combo pack from the Trimming the Town product suite.

I used my Old Olive and Real Red ink pads to create a multi-colored greeting from the Warm Hugs stamp set which comes from the Heartwarming Hugs product suite. I punched it out with the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch.

After the ribbon was applied, dimensionals were added to the back and then placed onto the Real Red cardstock ….

The Real Red is adhered directly onto the Whisper White base. I think this is such a fun card, and quite easy to create! The embossing brings texture and a richness to the card … and our ribbon adds that holiday sparkle.

I want to thank your for taking time out of your day to hang out with me for a while. My wish is that you learned a little more about your Stamparatus, or put it on your wish list! What would you like to see in an upcoming Technique Tuesday? Write it in the comments below 🙂 Thanks!

Have a great day ~
