Stampin' UP! Timeless Textures and
Metallic Enamel Shapes
It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for the Stamp Review Crew. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators focused on sharing a ton of ideas focusing on a single stamp set. This week we're featuring Timeless Textures. You have likely come from Bruno Bertucci on your way through this amazing hop.

Well now. Here's a challenge for you. Take a stamp set that is just full of accents and show different ways to use it. Initially I could only think of one way to use it - as an accent! But then I thought “Oh, c'mon Mike! Be creative! Have fun!” So I decided to see just what I could create. The mesh sure looked like an old farm fence to me...and the rest is history. I wanted it to look like an old tin type pic. How's this?
Step by Step Tips:
- I started with a 3 3/5“ x 5” piece of Crumb Cake card stock and Crumb Cake ink. I matted it on a 4“ x 5 1/4” piece of Early Espresso card stock and then added it to a Crumb Cake card base.
- I used the mesh stamp (lower left ->) to create the fence.
- I used the Washi Tape stamp (upper right ->) for the fence post.
- The stamp second from the bottom on the left became the horizon. ->
- The stamp second from the top on the left became the snow bank.
- The flourish (bottom right) stamped multiple times became the tree.
- The splatter was stamped using gold embossing powder to create lights.
- A gold metallic enamel star topped the tree and the circles became the halo!
- I have to cheat and use the Tin of Tags photopolymer stamp set for the sentiment - there are no greetings in an accent set! Simple!
How'd I do?
