It's always great to learn a new technique (definitely new to me) that makes such an impact on my papercrafting mojo. This technique is so addictive that I've made dozens of these for various projects, hops, and customer purchases. I want to thank our blog hostess, Ashley, for setting up this event, which I hope you enjoy, and for enabling me to be a triple stamper!! Ashley has some BLOG CANDY so be sure to check out her directions on that!!
First I'll give you the dimensions and some info on how to use this technique to make a card of your own:
Dimensions for the stamped layers - 1 each
2" x 3-1/4"
3" x 4-1/4"
4" x 5-1/4"Dimensions for the cardstock mat layers - 1 each
2-1/4" x 3-1/2"
3-1/4" x 4-1/2"
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (fold for card base to get a great crease)
For me it was very helpful to have this dimension guide - no guess work!!
The above info and a wonderful tutorial can be found at
I also found that it's great to have at least one nice-sized stamp that will stamp across the triple layers!
Next, I'll share with you several different event-type triple stamped cards that I made.
The first four cards I'm sharing today all used the basic recipe:
*SU sentiments from various collections
*SU cardstock - one used patterned paper for the layer mats and base
*SU stamp inks in a variety of colors
*Ribbon and/or twine and/or decorative brad
*SU confetti cream for each of the stamped layers - I just learned that SU discontinued the confetti cream and the confetti white paper.........bummer!!
My daughter is a Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator and through the years I've purchased LOTS of supplies. This technique was the stimulus for me to reacquaint myself with some SU products I had in my crafty arsenal! However, other stamps and card stock can be equally engaging for this technique.
This was my very first triple stamped card.
My birthday was last week, so I made this card to post on my FB page and currently it's my FB comment identifier. Thanks - I love being spoiled!
I had so much fun doing these cards and many others. You can add digi stamps, paper piecings, and Action Wobbles to name just a few extras for a bit of whimsy. Also, you can use patterned mats to separate the layers - use your imagination. A heavier card stock for the base allows the card to be free-standing.
These last two cards were made for another posting, but you'll get the idea - the one on the left used patterned mat layers with a PPbN image and the one on the right used the same PPbN image on an Action Wobble. The stamps were from Peachy Keen.
If you've a mind, become a follower; if you'd like to leave a comment or a question, please do so!
Remember, no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it.......cyberhugs...........Mama LoveBug.
