Biggest Wish Hinge Step Birthday - two cool

Biggest Wish Hinge Step Birthday Cards
The Stamparatus makes it easy to create a really cool repetitive background! I show it in action in the LIVE Class Replay linked above and the results are super-awesome!

Step Stamped Background—I started by adhering a 1-1/4" piece of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White. Next, I placed the layer into the Stamparatus so that the top right corner was flush with the Stamparatus edges. I positioned the Biggest Wish "happy" stamp onto the card about 1/8" from the top edge, then closed the Stamparatus plate over it to pick it up.
For the repetitive stamping, you simply ink the stamp, press it onto the cardstock, clean it, move the plate down one hinge, then repeat. I stamped in graduating green colors: Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaront, Soft Succulent and Bermuda Bay. TIP: The Simply Shammy is perfect for cleaning up the stamp while it's attached to the Stamparatus plate. Even better, you can cut the Simply Shammy in half or quarters so you have a smaller shammy that is more manageable to use.
I finished by stamping the Biggest Wish "birthday" word in Memento Tuxedo Black ink at the bottom. I mounted the stamped layer onto a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Finishing Touches—I tied some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon around the card front into a double-knot, trimming the ends. I finished by coloring a couple of Rhinestone Jewels with the Dark Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers and adding them at the bottom of the card.

Two Cool—I thought the first card was a little more masculine looking, so I made this one more girly. I adhered a strip of Hand-Penned DSP this time. The colors used in the Hinge Step technique were: Magenta Madness stamped off once, Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.

Finishing Touches—I tied matching Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon around the card front this time and colored those jewels with a Magenta Madness Dark Blends Marker.
