The Stamparatus is the right partner to do the “Hinge-Step” with 💃🏻🕺🏽
The right tool always makes the job easier, and to get your stamps lined up perfectly, you’ll love dancing (and stamping) with the Stamparatus tool:
I turned the slimline card on the side (3.5″ x 6.25″) and used the Stamparatus to get perfect placement: Just take out the plate with the stamp on it and move it down to the next hinge, then ink up your stamp with a different color (watch video, top).
It’s a fast & fabulous technique to try in your craft room! Don’t forget to stamp the envelope, too!

I had fun creating this card for brides (and grooms) on a wedding day using the Blessings of Home Bundle…and BONUS, it’s perfect for gifting money to the newlyweds as it’s a large slimline card that fits in our coordinating Slimline envelopes
For this size of card, start with a piece of 8.5″ x 7″ card stock and score it in half at 3.5″ (finished card is 8.5″ x 3.5″).
Have you ever tried Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils? They are easier than you’d think to use and they give this card a soft effect, different than my usual preference for Stampin’ Blends. This is literally how I started…just by scribbling color onto my Watercolor Paper:
I do TRY to follow the lines and details of the image, then I use the Water Painters to blend the colors out, working from lightest to darkest. A tip for watercoloring: You will have MUCH better success when using Watercolor Paper or SU! Shimmery White paper, as they hold up to the moisture best and won’t “pill up” when you add water.
