Hi Stampers. Do you like simple stamping?  How about simple stamping that looks more complex than it is?  This rainbow birthday card is super easy using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus & the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I used the hinge stamping technique to create this perfectly spaced card front.

This bright and  cheery card starts with a Basic Black card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I did the stamping on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. This was stamped onto that layer using the stamparatus. I placed the Whisper White CS into the stamparatus with the stamping plate on the right side and placed the stamp near the top left side. The first Happy Birthday is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.  I then moved the plate down one hinge and stamped the next Happy Birthday in Melon Mambo.  This process was repeated again in Daffodil Delight ink, Coastal Cabana ink and then Granny Apple Green ink.

I adhered a strip of some retired washi tape on the right side, wrapping it over the top and bottom before adhering this layer to the card base.  This strip can be done using a 1/2″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Silver Glimmer Paper or a 6-1/4″ strip of ribbon. I then inked up the “here’s to celebrating you!” stamp – I did this with the uninked spectrum pad (inked with these colors).

Stampin’ Tip: You can achieve multi colors on a stamped image by inking the stamp using the Stampin’ Write markers. Place the stamp on the block and then place it on the table rubber side up. Apply ink to the stamp using the brush end of the Stampin’ Write marker.  Make sure to start with the lightest color first and move your way to the darker color last.  This prevents the ink transferring to your marker.

The inside of the card also has a 4″ x 5-1/4″.  On this layer I stamped another sentiment and a small flower from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I just loved the rainbow effect on the stamp.
