Stampin’ Up! Number of Years Shaker

We laugh when my card samples for my classes often show that I have a light hand when stamping the images.  For some reason, I had a heavy hand with the sand when I was making this Number of Years shaker card.  I’m almost embarrassed to share it with you but I love the colors so here goes.    Don’t laugh too hard!   Ai ya!  It looks like the flowers are sinking into all that sand!  LOL.

Number of Years Shaker

I started with a Whisper White card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ .  The focal Whisper White panel is cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″.  I cut a circle using the new Layering Circle Framelits  and embossed it with the new Petal Burst embossing folder (it’s beautiful).   The flowers from Number of Years are stamped onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and adhered onto a panel of Daffodil Delight measuring 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ and then onto a panel of Flirty Flamingo measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  I added Foam Adhesive Strips around the stamped flowers and dumped in the sand!  I cut a square of Window Sheet and adhered it to the back of the white panel and added dimensionals around the edges of the white panel and adhered it over the Daffodil Delight panel.  I added some Daffodil Delight ribbon and tied a bow around it.  The sentiment is from Circle of Spring.  The card is finished with a stamped Flirty Flaming butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.

Circle of Spring Wax Paper Resist

Another technique from the archives is wax paper resist.  I think the most fun we had while making this card was using my miniature iron and ironing board!

Wax Paper Resist Circle of Spring

Aren’t these the cutest?  I bought these years ago when I was first doing the wax paper resist technique as I didn’t want to haul out the big ironing board and iron.  I bought a couple of irons and several ironing boards in various colors, but over the years sold them at garage sales.


But getting back to the card, the card base is Watermelon Wonder with the front panel embossed with Decorative Dots embossing folder (retiring!).  With the wax paper resist technique you produce two sheets of card stock, one for the current project and you can save the other for another project.  For this card, we used Tip Top Taupe to add the color and then cut it out with the Circle Framelits (retiring!).  It was layered onto a Tea Lace Paper Doily (retiring!) and we added a Watermelon Wonder butterfly to it.  The sentiment is from Circle of Spring.
