Those Stampin’ Up! supplies come in handy, don’t they? Our daughter needed to make a Miner’s Hut for her 2nd grade pioneer project. So after watching a few videos on YouTube about panning for gold (here’s our favorite), she decided that her stream needed some gold.
See the gold in the stream? This miner is going to make a fortune!
Fortunately, the Glass Glitter is good for papercrafting projects, too.
Here are a few on my blog: Glass Glitter Ideas
Or here are some ideas for papercrafting projects to make with kids: Stamp with Kids
Okay, I have been WAITING to share this card with you for weeks! Back at the end of September I went on a Demonstrator Retreat for a weekend and spent time stamping and creating and having fun. Sound like something you’d enjoy? You can still join my demonstrator family with the current FREE Big Shot special!).
While at the Retreat, I played with my new Shaker Frames (see them online), and the Triple Treat Flower Stamp (see it online). Yesterday I shared a basic Shaker Card with you… today’s card is a bit more advanced! The supplies are from the Timeless Portrait Product Suite (pages 78-79 in the Stampin’ Up! catalog — click here to download or click here to browse the suite online). The glitter inside is the Champagne Glass Glitter (check out some other projects with this fab glitter).
The stamp is one of my favorites… I’m just telling you, in case you haven’t seen it just about every other day on my blog for the past 2 weeks.
The Triple Treat Flower stamp is also featured in my Stamps in the Mail Club this round, which runs November through January. If you haven’t checked out Stamps in the Mail Club, be sure to click for details. In short, this is a chance to have ready-to-stamp card ideas and supplies delivered to your doorstep, complete with exclusive Video Tutorials and printed instructions.
For this card, the directions are similar to yesterday’s Shaker Card, but instead of using a single circle Shaker Frame, I used one for each petal. Here’s a quick how-to photo, since a picture’s worth a thousand words.
Check out the Shaker Frames in the background–you can see where I used a Hobby Knife to cut the small circle so it would fit the petal of the Fancy Flower Punch that is a perfect match for the Triple Treat Flower.
Just cut 5 partial frames, and stick them to your punched flower & Window Sheet (you’ll have to cut the window sheet by hand–it doesn’t punch).
Oh, and this is a Top Note flap card… I packed a lot into this one, didn’t I? Here are the directions I posted for those, although I have a Video Tutorial that should be ready to post soon. I promised! The stamp set used inside is Elements of Style (see it online).
Whew. Looking for more ideas? I’ve been infatuated with the Timeless Portrait Product Suite lately, so here are a few projects made with those supplies.
Looking for fun Christmas gifts to make? Here’s one where your time and love show through, even though the cost is easily affordable. Step 1: Pick up a composition book on clearance at a big-box store (mine was $0.10). Step 2: Decorate with the Forever Young stamp set (see it online) and items from the Timeless Portrait Product Suite (pages 78-79 in the Stampin’ Up! catalog — click here to download or click here to browse the suite online).

I have to say that until I sat down and played with them, I didn’t know how much I loved this color scheme! The colors here are River Rock, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black. LOVE it!
Or are you a Digital papercrafter? This is a great project to create digitally — the products in the Timeless Portrait Suite are also available as Digital Downloads for My Digital Studio. And to make it even easier, you can order them all together as part of the Avant Garde Collection DVD (see it online).
So grab a few notebooks and start creating — this project is a fun vintage-y, collage mix of fabric, paper and trinkets.
I’ve been mentioning lately how much I’m loving the Nature Walk stamp set (see it online). So when I needed to design a card for Stamp Club with Meg (tonight! check my event calendar) this was the first stamp set to jump off the shelf and into my hand.
What a mouthful for a technique name though! This technique has been around since I started demonstrating about 10 years ago, and it has several names… Layered Brayers and a whole bunch more that I can’t recall.
But whatever you call it, it’s a great collage-type technique. Here I used the Nature Walk stamp set along with Classic Ink Pads in River Rock, Crumb Cake and Marina Mist, plus Early Espresso for stamping the darkest images.
Here are the steps for the Retro Brayer Color Block Technique:
- Stamp the background images in a variety of colors on Glossy Card Stock
- Use a Brayer and the lightest of your 3 ink colors to color the background
- Trim a Post-It Note to the desired size and cover up 1-2 spots on your card (I chose the bird images)
- Use the Brayer and the medium ink color to cover your full paper
- Add a few more Post-It Note masks and use your darkest color. Remove all masks and finish your card.
I used card stock to match my ink colors. The Four Frames stamp set (see my April Card Class ‘To Go’) is a perfect match for the oval stamp in Perfect Punches (the ‘thanks’ and small frame).
The sweet little Rosette and the Champagne Glass Glitter, Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper and Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon are all from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
Here is a fun trick with the Perfect Punches oval image. First stamp the ‘thanks’ oval, then punch out the words in the center with the 1-3/8″ x 5/8″ Oval Punch. Then punch out the frame with the Scallop Oval Punch and you have a fun frame with an oval-shaped window in the center.
