Hello, everyone and welcome to my little corner of the Virtual Card Making Party with Operation Write Home! Today I am sharing a technique called Triple Time Stamping. It looks very impressive, but it goes together very quickly. It’s also a lot of fun!
This card starts with varying sizes of white or vanilla and colored cardstocks. I’m using Whisper White and Tangerine Tango. I’ve noted the sizes on the photo below (click to make bigger):
These layers are not adhered yet, I dry-fit them to show sizes and layering. I then removed the colored cardstock and layered the white cardstock.
You can use a repositional adhesive if you like, but I like to take a walk on the wild side and am just very careful with my stamping. I like to use large and/or very graphic stamps for this technique. I think of it as making my own patterned paper.
For this card, I used the large background stamp, Hello Doily! and the Delicate Doilies stamp set. I used coordinating ink colors in Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry and Rasberry Ripple. Do not worry about the lack of coverage in your stamping across the layers. It will take care of itself in the next step.
Be careful to line up your stamping and keep it going the same direction and adhere your stamped layers to the colored cardstock, one layer at a time.
I like to add an extra stamped image popped up on a dimensional adhesive and maybe something extra for a bit of embellishment and interest.
Here’s another example of the Triple Time Stamping Technique made with a different stamp set and color choice.
