Triple Time Stamping Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a great technique … step by step, and new stamp set and a refresher on a coloring technique. I actually shared this technique with you on Sunday, however one of my customers reached out to me and and asked if I would share a video … so I used this for my LIVE demonstration last night for Technique Tuesday!

Let me introduce you to the Hand-Penned Petals from the beautiful Hand-Penned Suite on pages 104 & 105 of our Annual Catalog this is highlighted using the Triple Time Stamping Technique ….

I invite you to watch the video so you can see step by step how I created the cards …

Pretty simple … don’t you think? Here are those dimensions again (I also added them to the video in the comment section) The colored cardstock I used was Fresh Freesia!

  • Basic White: 2 @ 5-1/4″ x 4″ … 4-1/4″ x 3″ …. 3-1/4″ x 2″
  • Colored Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (fold in half) … 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ …. 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″

I promised I would share a second card with you, one done in the Soft Succulent and I also created it in the portrait position and used the Dual Oval punch for my greeting …

I just love the softness of the flowers when you use the Stampin’ Blends … it almost looks as if it was water colored. I added touch of texture and softness around my greeting by added a ripple of ribbon behind it.

I thank you for stopping in for a visit today, I hope you enjoyed the video and the second sample, and that it inspires you to try one of these techniques.

Hope you have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday: Elegantly Said in Polished Pink

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Today is the fifth and final day of our 2021-23 In-Color Collection Showcase. Each card has showcased not only a new In-Color but a technique, and of course the Elegantly Said bundle.

Today I will showcase the Polished Pink with the Triple Time Technique. I am using the same stamp and greeting as I have the other four … not to worry, I will have plenty more samples from this amazing bundle in future posts, but lets take a look at today’s card …

Triple time is such a cool technique and very simple to do. Let’s begin with our Polished Pink cardstock … 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″, 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″ and dimensions for the Basic White are: 4″ x 5-1/4″, 3″ x 4-1/4″, 2″ x 3-1/4″.

Layer the 3 pieces of white cardstock together and then stamp your images, then layer the Polished Pink cardstock behind it … align the stamped images so it looks like a continuous flow. It’s so easy and turns out so cool!

To highlight the continuation / flow of the stamped images, I used my trusty “Wink of Stella”. It really adds a fabulous touch to the card with that “sparkle”, and because of that I only added one of the In Color Gems to the card and that was on my punched greeting above the ribbon.

I hope I inspired you to try this technique, you can use any images you like, however if you’ve fallen for this bundle … I have it listed below.

I’d like to Thank you for joining me today….

Enjoy the rest of your weekend ~

Lovin’ the Triple Layer Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’ve got two cards to share with you today using the Triple Layer Technique … it is usually done with stamped images but I like using it with designer paper. I’m using the Peony Garden, same as I did on my Simply Sunday cards (View them Here).

Let’s begin with the “How To” create the Triple Layer. I’m using the square dies but you can actually use any shape die …

I picked the Gray Peony pattern to show that when die cut, the triple layer technique highlights the pattern …

Once your designer paper is die cut, you will need to mat those pieces … I like mine to be only an 1/8″ larger so you don’t take away from your design …

You’ve got to love the fact that you have no waste with this designer paper technique. One little tip I’d like to share is to keep your designer paper in the position in which you cut.

Time to create the layers and while we are add it … lets add dimension too! Remember when layering, to position your cut pieces so the design aligns and you will end up with a stunning Triple Layer card ~

See how the pattern of your paper is not chopped up by the die cuts, but are actually highlighted with the mat. This monochromatic card checks all the boxes in design and is finished off with “best wishes” sentiment from the Borders Abound.

Are you lovin’ the layers? How about the monochromatic theme? Do you prefer a portrait or landscape layout? How about we change things up a bit and swap out the Basic Gray cardstock for Basic Black and turn our card from the portrait to a landscape / horizontal layout …

What do you think? Too bold or does the black really make the card pop? I had a little fun positioning the sentiment and thought that it really incorporates itself into the card. Talking about layering ….

I must say that I had a lot of fun creating these cards … this technique is fun and easy to do. Again, you can use any die shape as long as you have a mat behind it.

Which one did you prefer … and why? Make sure you leave me your comments below, I can’t wait to find out which one you all like best!

Thanks for hanging out with me today, and I can’t wait to hear what you think … Like the post at the bottom of my blog and then leave a comment on which card you like best.

Have an awesome day today ~
