Mostly Men Class – A Really Quick & Easy Stamparatus Card

The final project of the Mostly Men Class was this easy Stamparatus Card.

This project was the quickest of the 6 and it’s all because of the Stamparatus.

If I hadn’t added the ribbon, or the extra sentiment, it would have been completed in about 2 minutes maximum!

The key to this project is using a stamp that has a large sentiment or image, plus choosing a colour that still stamps after 4/5 stampings.

Perennial Birthday Stamp Set gave me the sentiment. Blueberry Bushel was my colour choice.

After inking up the sentiment well and lining everything up, it was time to use the ‘hinge-step’ technique to stamp multiple times. This is where you move the Stamparatus plate down one notch each time.

I demonstrated this project to everyone at the start and I don’t think they believed how quick it was, until they did it themselves!

An extra sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays and the co-ordinating Blueberry Bushel Ribbon complete the project.

It’s mounted onto a Blueberry Bushel layer and a Thick Whisper White Base Card for a monochromatic look.
