Today I am sharing a couple of cards using an old technique call Triple Time Stamping.
The sizes of cardstock you will need are:
Whip Cream: Black Licorice:
2″ x 3 1/4″ 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″
3″ x 4 1/4″ 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″
4″ x 5 1/4″ 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ This is the base of your card. Do you see the pattern with the sizes of card stock you will need? These cuts are very easy to remember.
To begin, stack the 3 pieces of Whip Cream CS one on top of each other. Put a small amount of temporary adhesive on the backs of the first 2 pieces so that when you begin stamping, the pieces will stay together and not move. You can stack these pieces symmetrically (even, equal) or asymmetrically (not equal), or wonky. I like things off center and asymmetrical most of the time as in the case of both of these cards. See pictures.
1. 2. Next take your dauber and in quick even circular stokes lay down your colors. You will blend and mix until you get the colors you like.
3. After this step, I stamped the dahlia image.
4. When the stamped images are complete, you will take the 3 layers apart, one at a time, and adhere each piece onto the Black Licorice piece that coordinates with that size.
That is all there is to it. Much simpler than the WOW effect you will achieve!
It is SO simple but the the effect is AWESOME! I used the Dahlia Burst stamp set,which also comes as a bundle. To stamp the flowers, I used our daubers, with Pineapple Smoothie, Watermelon Fusion, and Candy Apple ink pads to create the background colors on the flowers, and Limeade Splash for the leaves. I then stamped the image, using Black Licorice Ink on top of these blended colors. You do not need to be exact with this technique. I love the way it turned out. The colors are so rich and deep! I finished the card using Black Licorice Twine. I also used a masking technique so that the leaves appear to be behind the flowers.
For this next card I used the Peony Blooms. This stamp set is new this year and like most of our stamp sets comes as a bundle. I used Pan Pastels to color in the blooms, after stamping the peony image in Black Licorice Ink. I used the Bubble Gum, and Watermelon Fusion for the blooms and Kiwi Slice and Lemon Days for the leaves. This is the quickest, and easiest technique for coloring! I also used the Canvas Prints background stamp to add texture. Also, to add texture and age, I roughed up the edges of the Whip Cream Card Stock with my crease tool. I added this card to the Watercooler Wednesday Blog challenge this week. You can click on the link and check out all of the beautiful projects over there.
I also used Black Licorice twine, pearls and our Sparkle Silk to finish the card.
Do you have a favorite? Dahlia Burst or Peony Blooms? I can’t decide which one I like best. 🙂
