Technique Tuesday #15

Hi everyone!

Welcome to this weeks Technique Tuesday ~ this is when I share a technique that can be applied to many forms of paper crafting ~ card making, scrapbooking, albums and tags. I alternate Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tip just to change things up a bit.

This week’s technique: TRIPLE TIME STAMPING.

I’ve seen this triple time stamping idea a few times so I thought I would give it a try. It’s a lot of fun, gives a unique look and any stamp set will work for this technique.

You will need: neutral color card stock {for stamping}, colored card stock {for matting and card base}, stamp/stamps, ink, embossing powder/heat tool {if you want your sentiment embossed}, adhesive, any embellishments you would like to add.

Begin by cutting all of the card stock pieces.

Neutral card stock measurements: 2″ x 3 1/4″, 3″ x 4 1/4″ and 4″ x 5 1/4″

Colored card stock measurements: 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and 4 1/4″ x 11″ {card base}

Stamp the sentiment on the bottom portion of the smallest layer. Apply a little dab of adhesive to the backs of the 2 smallest neutral card stock pieces. Then touch it with your finger a few times to get rid of some of the sticky because you do want to be able to get them apart after the stamping is complete. Layer the 3 neutral pieces of card stock by centering them one on top of the other.

Begin stamping starting in the center and working around the edges, filling in as you go. *Be sure to stamp so that image is going off onto at least one of the next layers. Don’t work about any gaps between the layers ~ the mats will fix that. Please note: I did mask off a portion on the center of the smallest panel as I wasn’t sure if the 2 flowers would be too close together ~ as it turns out, I should have stamped the whole flower there but I didn’t want to redo the whole thing.

Once you are happy with the stamping, take apart the stamped layers, attach them to their mats and layer them onto the card base. For my card, once the first 2 layers were ready, I tied some pink seam binding around them. To finish off the card, some liquid pearls were added to the flowers centers and in random spots.
