Pam from The Bug Bytes emailed me back in September and asked me if I would like to be a regular guest designer on her blog, along with all the of her other fabulous DT members and as I am writing this today, you now know I said yes!
It is such a wonderful feeling to be approached in this way and I love to be able to share my simple creations with so many wonderful people. I am to be guest designer on the first Wednesday of every month.
Today, I would like to share with you a card I made using a new technique (to me) called triple stamping. I think you can probably stamp as many times as you want - it all depends how many layers you would like. I feel this card could be used for an anniversary/birthday, maybe even valentines.
Anyway, I stamped my image three times. The stamp is from a set called Reason to Smile and its made by Stampin' Up. I won the set as blog candy back at the end of August from Pam at Paper Diva.
Just to be different I didn't cut mine into squares/rectangles, I decided to cut mine on the angle for the layers. No particular reason, just because I could LOL.
The card base is one of my 8" by 3" pre-folded card stock, bought in the UK many moons ago:-)
The first two layers are papers from the Recollections pack called Timeless. I really do love this set of papers. These layers were cut at 7.75" by 2.75" and then 7" by 2" as I wanted the first layer to show, I then inked all the edges.
I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink on the flower and sentiment layers and inked the edges on these too.
The red ribbon/trim is from my stash and I thought it worked well on this card.
Thanks Pam, for inviting me along to your blog.
