Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Stamparatus

It's a fun Blog Hop for the Stamping Sunday Design Team.
We are showcasing the 'Stamparatus' and I am in love with this amazing Placement tool!



YouTube: 5 Things to know about the Stamparatus

I have a few projects for you using 1 colour; ink pad & Cardstock with a Neutral, however, I will concentrate on one project using the NEW In Color 'Grapefruit Grove'.

I have created a very simple ombre 'Happy Birthday' card, and believe me this is a very easy and fun creation to make!
1 colour, and 1 lot of inking from your stamp pad to create the ombre look.

You only need to ink up your stamp once to create this easy-peasy 'Happy Birthday' card.

How to wrap your 'Baker's Twine; 'Tear & Tape Adhesive', wrap around the 'Baker's Twine' and Ta-da!
 Then you can add a bow! Well, you don't have to add the bow, but it makes for a lovely touch. Especially for the ladies.

1. Place the cardstock into the centre of the Stamparatus plate, and add 1 magnet to hold it down.
2. Line up your stamp for placement, and bring down the clear plate on top to pick it up, and leave to the side.
3. Add the ink colour of your choice to the stamp.
4. Place the clear plate with the stamp in place onto the cardstock, and stamp your image.

5. Repeat the ombre effect by lifting the clear plate away from the Stamparatus and placing it into the 2nd notch down, and stamp.
6. The image stamped is a 'stamped-off' version of the first image.
7. Repeat the 3rd stamped image by lifting the clear plate away from the Stamparatus and placing it into the 3rd notch down, and stamp.
8. You have another 'stamped-off' image and the finish of your card front.

3 cards using 1 colour ink pad & cardstock, and making ombre amazing.

Colour INKspiration #CI34

Hello and welcome to my blog. Thankyou for joining me for the Colour INKspiration Colour Challenge #CI34.
This Challenge runs for 3 weeks, so you have plenty of time to add your creations to our gallery here.
You may have hopped from Monique - my Onstage Presentation Table Buddy, or you have started with me? Enjoy the inspiration from the CI crew.


Below is the Colour Swatch for #CI34


Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight & Basic Gray

How adorable is the Kangaroo from the 'Animal Outing' stamp set? This will be available 1st June, 2018 - not long to wait now!
She is an Eastern Grey Kangaroo, and I have coloured her with 'Watercolor Pencils'.

I popped some flowers in her pouch. The flowers are from the about to retire
'Tree Builder Punch'.
I love the background panel of 'Calypso Coral DSP' which comes from the 
'Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper'.

'Thankyou Big Time' - such a sweet sentiment and that font!


Next on the Blog Hop is Tanya Bell, and there is one lovely creation that you are about to see. 
Thankyou for visiting. D x
