This card has a fun technique by Jennifer McGuire, which is a floating frame of die-cut gears.  Here's a quick outline on how to create such a frame...

  1. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock the same size as the front of your card.
  2. Die-cut multiple images.  I have used the gears die from the Garage Gears Thinlits in Tranquil Tide, Basic Gray, and Crushed Curry card stock.  You could use stamped and die-cut images too.
  3. Lay all the die-cut images over the Whisper White card stock, but do not adhere.  Cover as much of the card stock as you can without the die-cut pieces overlapping.
  4. Take a piece of Glad® Press 'N' Seal® Cling Film and lay it over the die-cut images.  One side of the Glad Press 'N' Seal is slightly sticky, similar to the temporary adhesive of a Post-it® Note.  Lightly press down the cling film to hold the layout.
  5. Turn over the Whisper White card stock and trim off the excess that is hanging over the edges.
  6. Die-cut a rectangle from the middle of the Whisper White card stock to create a frame.  The die will cut through the Press 'N' Seal and the die-cuts, but it will all be held in place.
  7. Remove the Whisper White card stock and apply Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of all the die-cut pieces.  Remove the backings from the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and adhere the frame to the front of your card.
  8. Gently remove the Press 'N' Seal from the front of the die-cuts, leaving behind a floating frame!

Geared Up Garage Floating Frame Masculine Birthday Card

I've finished this card with some metallic sequins for a bit of bling and to fill in any holes in the frame, pulling it all together.

Hamilton Extravaganza

Our first Hamilton Extravaganza of the year was held last weekend and it was a wonderful day of creating fabulous projects, inspiration, and fun!

Hamilton Extravaganza

We love making our guests at the Hamilton Extravaganza feel special, so each of the eight local Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who collaborated for the event gave a small handmade gift....

Hamilton Extravaganza | Guest Gifts

... and we also gave away prizes too!  Here's some of the lovely product and gifts that were donated and given out…

Hamilton Extravaganza | Prize Draw Prizes

At the Hamilton Extravaganza, we had five teams of teachers who rotated around the room, teaching their projects, so all guests went home with five completed projects plus new techniques, tips and ideas.

In this first project, Jacque showed everyone how to use the Salt Technique to create a gorgeous variegated backdrop for a beautiful horse scene, stamped using the Let It Ride stamp set.  This vintage-style card has the detailed central area die-cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and popped up for a fabulous framing effect.

Bev and Julie taught everyone how to create a fabulous pop-up box card and filled it with butterflies!  To get that bright, colourful display they stamped using a custom-inked Spectrum Pad and the Butterfly Gala stamp set...

If you love texture, then you'll love Irene and Rayleen's Tea Together Gift Card!  The background is embossing using the Lace Embossing Folder and the tea pot using the Tufted Embossing Folder...

Then inside is a pocket with a tea-themed surprise!

Christine and Irene showed everyone how to create a beautiful gift set of notecards using the Needle & Thread stamp set and coordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.  A touch of soft sponging, a swirl of Linen Thread, and some sequin bling really bring these to life!

And lastly, I showed everyone how to create a gift card holder for the Sweet Cups.  These were decorated using the Sweetest Thing stamp set and coordinating Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, plus the delicious How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.

I enjoy sharing what I know with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.
