08/19/21 August 2021 Technique Squad Blog Hop -Hinge Step Stamping


Thank you for joining us for the August 2021 Technique Squad Blog featuring Hinge Step Stamping!  I was excited to learn this was going to be our featured technique.  I love how easy it is to line up images on my cards - it looks so nice to see everything lined up and spaced so evenly without a lot of effort!



Typically, I use this technique for sentiments.  However, for my card today, I decided to combine a two-step image using different colors, along with the sentiment.  I was pleased with how easy it was to create this colorful look.  In fact, I liked it so much, I duplicated it for the inside of my card!


To complete this card, the first thing I did was place my stamps on the Stamparatus plates.  I used both sides of one plate and one side of the second plate.


I stamped the floral outline image and the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  First, I stamped the floral outline image, skipping one step for each flower.  I switched plates and stamped the sentiment, starting with the second step.  Again, I skipped one step before stamping the sentiment again.  Finally, I flipped the plate over to stamp the color image, being sure to wipe the stamp clean each time to avoid mixing colors.

I hope you enjoyed learning how to do the Hinge Step Technique.  If you do not own a Stamparatus, I recommend that you add this to your stamping supplies!  Be sure to check out all of the other cards created by the talented demonstrators participating in this blog hop.  Click the next button to see Kristie Strum's amazing project.
