More Triple Time Stamping!

I thought I would show you the cards we made last week in the Triple Time Stamping classes, I really enjoyed making these as did those who attended.  So pay attention if you missed out, you could have come along and made these too!! 🙂

We started off making a Christmas card……  yes, Christmas… it’s never too early to start your collection of lovely handmade Christmas cards.

This one uses the stamp set Lovely as a Tree, and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.  It could, of course be a masculine birthday card rather than a Christmas card, but in any case the idea was to introduce the Triple Stamping technique with just two layers of stamped cardstock to see how it all goes together.

The second card uses the gorgeous Swallowtail stamp, combined with Papillon Potpourri, and the colours Pool Party and Island Indigo. 

And last but not least, a masculine card which uses The Open Sea stamp set, and in the background some patterned paper from the Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Series Papers, and the Cloudy Day embossing folder.

This is such a great technique and creates gorgeous and unusual cards.  I have a couple more that I have made as samples that I will share with you soon.
Happy stamping!

Triple Time Stamping

Just a quick post to let you know that there are still a few seats available for the Triple Time Stamping Class which is happening next week.  So if you live in the Canberra area and would like to come along, please let me know asap.  Here is one of the cards we will be making:

You can contact me via email or phone, but please let me know asap as these cards require quite a lot of preparation.  More details can be found on my Classes page.
Looking forward to stamping with you soon 🙂
Happy Stamping!

Direct Ink meets Triple Stamping….

… actually in this case I think it is Double stamping.  I am not sure of the correct name for this technique, I have seen it called a number of different things, but whatever it is called, it is a great technique.

This first card I am going to enter into this week’s Retro Sketches challenge since it was their sketch that inspired me 🙂

I have used the Direct Ink onto cardstock technique using the colours Pool Party and Old Olive, and then I have used the Triple stamping technique for the silhouette in Basic Grey.  The silhouette image comes from one of my all time favourite stamp sets Serene Silhouettes.

The second card uses similar techniques only this time I have used the ink directly onto the clear block and then stamped that onto the cardstock.  It is just a little more subtle, but still very effective.  The colours are the same, only this time it is the French Foliage stamp set (another favourite!)

 

If you like the Triple Stamping technique, live in the Canberra area, and would like to learn more about how to use this technique, I will be running classes on Tuesday 26th March at 1pm and Wednesday 27th March at 7.30pm.  Bookings are essential as places are limited, so contact me asap to book your seat.  I will also organise a class on the Direct Ink techniques, probably in late April or early May, details coming soon.

Happy stamping!

Need for Speed

Need For Speed is such a fabulous stamp set for male cards for the men in our lives, and you will be happy to know that there are some more good male stamp sets coming in the new catalogue (only a week to wait now!).  So with Father’s Day coming up, I thought I would share some cards made with this set.
Not sure if I am entirely happy with the colours of these cards, a little too “army” for my liking. What do you think?
I kept the first one fairly simple, and used some of the brads from the Vintage Trinkets on the corners, and wound the Linen Thread around the outside a few times.  I think it frames the image nicely.

 

 

 

The second card uses the Triple Time technique which I showed you here, along with some Artichoke Denim Jean Ribbon.
The colours in these cards are Always Artichoke, River Rock and Very Vanilla.

I have quite a bit to share with you over the coming week or so, so stay tuned.  And make sure you sign up for my newsletter to get all the latest news along with ideas and stamping tips and techniques!
Happy stamping!
