The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts357.  This week we're sharing a Color Blocking Inspiration.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts357 Color Blocking Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

During our Monthly STARS Zoom Meeting last month, my team member and friend, Jan Carlson shared a Color Blocking Technique with everyone.  It looks really fun, so we decided to make it our theme inspiration for this month.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Using the Stamparatus, stamp images on all 4 panels of colored cardstock with black ink.  (I did need to stamp each one 2 times to get a nice clean stamped image)
  • Use the Paper Trimmer to cut each panel as follows:
    • 1-1/4" off the top,
    • turn and cut off right edge at 1-1/2" ,
    • then turn and cut off 1" of the "birthday". 
    • NOTE:  I cut two panels at a time.  If you can - cutting all 4 panels at a time is optimal.
  • Sort pieces into 4 piles of 1 color/shape per pile.  You'll get 4 cards - yay!
  • Assemble on white panel, like a puzzle.
