Today's Project

I love making multiple cards... and multiple designs using the same layouts and/or stamps.  The Stamparatus makes it so easy to do this!

Project Details

Hinge stamping is the technique that I have used today for both the sentiment and the card front layer featuring the retiring Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set.  I am going this stamp set that is part of the Ornate Garden Suite so much!  Thank goodness the dies and the other stamp set from this Suite are being carried over to the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!

Lining up the stamps and the placement of the cardstock layers are easy when doing multiples as you mark the corners of the layer(s).  The hinges basically move approximately one inch per hinge so there are quite a few images that will work amazingly with this technique.  The floral stamp can easily create five images across a 3-3/4" x 5" card layer.  Keeping the images in odd numbered increments helps with the design balance.

The placement of the sentiment was a more challenging layer for me as I did the hinge stamping three different ways to show some different ideas.  The Bermuda Bay card showcases Generation Stamping using the Stamparatus.  This took the longest to create as the image was inked with Bermuda Bay and then stamped on a Basic White card layer.  The plate was moved down one hinge and the image was stamped a second time.  Next the Basic White card layer was moved up two squares on the grid paper and then the image of stamped a third time.  This was repeated several more times until the card layer was completely stamped.  After the stamping was done, then the images were die cut.

For the remaining two sentiment panels, the stamping was done directly on the diecut panel while using Memento ink.  The panel for the Melon Mambo card was done with moving the plate down one hinge at a time as seen in the photo below.  The panel for the Daffodil Delight card was done the same, but repeated a second time after moving the die cut down two squares on the grid paper (same as the Bermuda Bay stamping).  With this second step, you could flip the plate over and add a second or even multiple ones to fit between the stamped images!  I didn't do it this time as I was being too indecisive as to which one of the lovely script font images to use as different ones would be for different recipients... so I kept the same sentiment for simplicity's sake to keep it more generic for anytime recipient.

The Stamparatus was also used for stamping the inside panels for the cards along with the envelope fronts and flaps!  Definitely a time saver for creating multiples!
