Thank you for coming in to take a peek at my latest post! All the girls (and guy!) over on one of my Close to My Heart Facebook groups are trying out this amazingly simple yet powerful stamping technique called triple stamping. You can see how to do it HERE in this YouTube video by Dawn. Thank you for the great tutorial, Dawn! It is a great way to make a beautiful card using only stamping to get a lot of bang for your buck. I like to call it Three-peat Stamping, myself....any former Bulls fans out there? Do you remember the day? Sigh...but I digress. :)
Here is my first attempt:
I really wanted to use the Pirouette stamp for this to see how it would look. I really like the effect, but let me tell you, I need more practice with this stamp because it is large! Large, and solid, lol. It left some blank spaces to fill in with a black marker, but that really wasn't too difficult to fix up. I also must have been a little crooked, because my sentiment is running downhill, lol. Ooops! See, bloggers make mistakes too! I admit, I was in a hurry to see how it would look. Lesson learned! Slow down and get it right. Now I know I like the look, so I will definitely make more of these! ;)
I made a total of SIX different cards like this tonight! I will post others in the days to come, but here are two more right now:
For both of these cards I used the Pemberley Workshop Stamp set from the previous Idea Book. I used the Pemberley Paper Packet which is still available to try a pattern paper as the mat on the first card. I like the effect, but I LOVE how the darker, solid mat makes it POP!
Which one do you prefer? I would love to know!
Remember, I am having a giveaway for anyone who orders on my website through my Card Workshop Gathering and helps me reach my goal this month! I am soooooo close!!! Read about it HERE!
