Triple Time Card

Hi Everyone,

Well – here it is, my first attempt at creating a card using the Triple Time Stamping technique that has been taking Stampin Up demonstrators by storm! Everywhere I look lately I see this technique and I love it! I think the first example I saw was from the esteemed Mary Fish back in July, (who cased it from Dawn Olchefski who has a tutorial for it HERE)


I used the Everything Eleanor stamp set along with the Itty Bitty Banners stamp and matching die with Crumb Cake and Regal Rose colours for cardstock, ink and ribbon for a pretty effect. A bit of a fancy edge with the Scallop Trim Border punch is set off by the pink that is showing through from the inside of the card…


Went a little overboard maybe, but I do like it!
You may notice that my flowers overlay the swirls, but you can’t actually see the swirls through the flowers.

How did I do that you ask? A simple matter of masking. The flowers were stamped and embossed, then masked ( a little paper cut out of the same stamp is very lightly stuck down over the original)  the swirls were then stamped with Crumb Cake ink, the masks removed and Voila! The ink doesn’t touch the flowers under their masks.

Here’s the stamp set, isn’t it gorgeous?

Everything Eleanor

Hope you all have a great week, I’ll be back in a coupe of hours with a new Stampin Up Promotion where you can earn some free ribbon – How exciting, off to write the post now.

In the meantime, enjoy my Triple Time Stamped Card Smile
