Hinge Step Stamping with the Stamparatus using Dashing Deer - Video Tutorial


Today's project used the Stamparatus Hinge Step stamping Technique. This is such a great technique, unique to the Stamparatus for creating amazing backgrounds!


This is the card I make in the Video. It differs just slightly from the original in that I do not have a border all around the card - I like this version better :o)


I used Balmy Blue and Highland Heather ink which goes really well with the Silver Glimmer - I just love that sparkle.

Here is the Video. I hope you enjoy it and leave me a comment afterwards :o) ....

Detailed Baubles - Gift Box


Today's project is this beautiful, very large Gift Box.

It measures 6½" square and is 4" tall. I wanted to cover the sides with the lovely stitched stripe paper from the same set, but sadly I didn't have quite enough left - so I kept the bottom of the box completely plain. The paper is from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series paper pack. Not Christmas paper, but I think it still works for the Holidays :o)


The base of the box was cut from our standard Night of Navy card but I had to use a 12" x 12" sheet to cut the lid.

The beautiful Silver Foil circular frame was cut using one of the Detailed Baubles thinlits dies. I cut the centre circle from Glimmer card.

The sentiment comes from the Warm Hearted hostess stamp set.  I stamped this using my Stamparatus with Night of Navy ink and then again over the top using Versamark ink. This was then embossed using Clear powder.


And ... this is what the box will hold - four large Christmas Tree Ornaments. My daughter is giving these to her friend as a gift.


I created dividers inside the box to stop the Baubles moving about. They are glass and very fragile, so I didn't want them breaking.

The dividers are half the height of the box. I have one going the full length and then two shorter ones dividing the sections into four.

Simple Christmas Card Using Dashing Deer


Good Morning! Today I am back with another Dashing Deer card! :o) This really is my current favourite Christmas set!

This card is very simple. I used it as my Make & Take for a recent Party. 

I took the colour combination from the colours used in the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper pack used for the background panel. Mossy Meadow isn't actually used in the sheet I picked, but it is used throughout the pack.


I used two very thin strips of the Gold Glimmer at the top and bottom of the stamped panel. Before cutting these I backed the Glimmer with some of our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. This made sticking them down very clean and simple - no messy fingers!
