Triple Stamping Card

This technique is not new. It has just taken me a while to give it a go! Sometimes referred to Triple Time Stamping, this technique creates a continuous pattern across multiple layers of paper. I will be using this technique for my next card class.

Here's a look at one of the cards my creative crew and I will be making. This one uses a Stampin' Up! doilies stamp set, plus one I got at Michaels Craft Store.

I find the technique works best with a LARGE image stamp. I have a few, but they are all pretty girly - doilies, flowers and butterflies. With this card, I possibly could have stamped fewer images. Once I layered in the coloured cardstock, it started to look a little crowded. Good thing I had a nice and small sentiment to use!

This card would work just as well with gears for guys (which I have, woot!), or butterflies or dragonflies. The panels don't even have to be centred or rectangular. You can layer them up however you like. I haven't designed the other cards for the class yet. I think I will try a spotlighting technique for one of them. Not sure what I mean by that? Guess you'll have to wait to find out!
