Triple Layering Stamping is a technique that has been around for a long time. Last week while I was working with the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (DSP) I thought about applying the technique to DSP. I’ve also tried it with Feels Like Frost DSP, and achieved great results with it. Whereas the Triple Layering Stamping technique uses three layers of cardstock (CS), normally Whisper White or Very Vanilla, using DSP needs just one sheet.
Using DSP also gave my new trimmer a good workout, because I had to cut one panel out, and then I had to cut a smaller panel out of it! The trimmer worked brilliantly. Cutting the panels was the hardest part of making this card, but the trimmer made very light work of it. I took the measurements for my card from my number 80 video called Triple Layering Stamping – this is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44cOk8k2AFw&t=50s
I’m really pleased how the Real Red and Garden Green card turned out but the all-red card is my favourite. You will see in the video that I trimmed off the Very Vanilla edging off the sentiment after I had die-cut it and then layered it on a piece of Garden Green CS. Without the Garden Green layer, I felt the sentiment melted into the background. and I wanted it to pop a bit more!
To decorate the inside of my card I used the smallest Layering Circle Die to die-cut the image of the ice-skaters, and layered it on a Garden Green Stitched Shape Circle – I used the smallest size. Needless to say, I’d now like to see what this card would look like if I used Real Red CS with Garden Green DSP? When I was preparing for the video card, I cut out the DSP in case I made a booboo while videoing – so I could use the reverse! At least I wouldn’t have to go right back to the beginning.
I’m pleased to say I didn’t make a mistake, and the DSP I prepared is already sitting here! If I get five minutes, I might give it a go! That’s it from me today. I wish you a very blessed Sunday and I look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, happy crafting.
