Go for Greece Training Group Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our FIRST Go for Greece Training Group Blog Hop! We are a group of demonstrators from all around the world that are taking part in training to learn from top demonstrators who have had success with Stampin' Up!®. It can be challenging when you want to turn Stampin' Up!® into a business that supports your family and not knowing where to start and that you are going about things the right way can be confusing and overwhelming on your own. So today our training is blog hopping!

You know, there is absolutely no way that I would have attempted this card without the Stamparatus. And, even if I HAD tried this card, it would have looked terrible! Nothing would have been lined up at all. Not so with the Stamparatus. Here is the card I ended up with;

How on earth did I get them so evenly spaced? And, how did you get all of the images stamped so perfectly? I used the 'Hinge-Step' Technique. Not familiar with what that is? Here is a video that explains it.

Wow! How awesome is that? So, I used the small heart stamp from the Heart Happiness Photopolymer Stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. And, stepped across. This is such an EXCELLENT tool! I did that for each line. And, after I finished each line, I removed the stamp and repositioned it for the next line and stepped across.

But, you know what my favourite thing about the Stamparatus is? If, for whatever reason, so mis-stamp something. Or there isn't enough ink. Or whatever. You can just ink it up again and stamp it. And, its PERFECTLY aligned. If you don't have one of these tools yet - YOU WAIT! You are going to love it. At this stage you won't be able to get it until June when the new catalogue starts.

After I had stamped the small hearts (including the Calypso Coral in the middle), I wanted to highlight the middle stamp even more. So, I lined up the heart with lines across using the Stamparatus and stamped it using black. I stamped it three times because I wanted it to be dark. And, because of this awesome tool, it looks awesome.

I did the same with the circles too. These are both from the Eastern Beauty stamp set. The outer one was stamped in black and the inner circle was stamped in Bermuda Bay. The sentiment is from the Colour Me Happy stamp set and I stamped it and mounted using mini-dimensionals. I then mounted this card onto a Lemon-Lime Twist card base.
