Color Me Happy Club Stamp Cards

You can’t help but smile while turning the Color Me Happy Club Stamp kit into twelve cards and a gift box!

Here is the download link for your paper trimming instructions. You’ll also find details on how to prep the Yellow Print to make the box base and lid.

January 2017 Club Stamp Instructions

The Club Stamp collection includes two 8.5×11 sheets of Yupo! I had a ball altering it with alcohol inks and splatters of 91% isopropyl alcohol.

There’s no better way to guide you through box making and Yupo altering than with a video. Check it out!

CARDS 1 & 2

The white organza ribbon is completely sheer on the top half and somewhat opaque on the bottom half. Use it to anchor this matted quote on the Yupo panel.

CARDS 3 & 4

Tie the white two-toned ribbon onto the top of a stamped tag. (“Thank you” image from the UM Greetings sheet.)

Check out that fun Yupo panel altered with alcohol ink. Add a few flowers stamped with Tangerine ink to round out the white areas.

CARDS 5 & 6

This is my favorite pair of cards in the set. Stamp the floral collage and dragonflies onto Brown paper with White Pigment ink. Remove selected areas with a craft knife and cutting mat, and layer onto a Yupo panel with foam adhesive circles.

CARDS 7 & 8

The “so happy together” sentiment from the stamp sheet can be cut into separate words to accommodate the size of the tag.

CARDS 9 & 10

Stamp over the images in the collage with the corresponding solid image on the sheet.

CARDS 11 & 12

Be careful when stamping text or images onto the Yupo. Be sure your stamp is inked thoroughly, and that the stamp doesn’t twist or slide on the paper, causing a smudged image. We recommend our Black India Ink for great results.

CARD BOX WITH LID

Don’t forget to watch the video for a step by step guide on how to create the box lid and base. If you have an Envelope Punch Board, use it to create thumb holes on the lid.

Enjoy!

  1. This post made my day! So many wonderful ideas – I love love LOVE the cards with the designs cut out of the brown on top of the yupo! Can’t wait for this to show up in GHM!

  2. Thanks for the instructions on making the gift box — it will be a great way to provide a set of cards for a gift. I am also looking forwarding to working with the Yupo paper.
