Triple Time Stamping using Poinsettia Petals

October 19, 2021

I have always wanted to make a Triple Time stamped card but just never got around to it.  I never had clear instructions.  Well, thanks to a challenge prior to the Fall Creativate online Retreat, I have made my first Triple Time card.

I honestly think my card is a bit ‘crowded’ but still, I like it.  Mission has been accomplished.

As always when stamping you’ll need stamps, ink, card stock and bling/accessories as needed.

For all the busy-ness, this card uses just a few supplies.

Poinsettia Petals Triple Time card

 

You’ll need:

  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Card stock
  • Other things like Dimensionals, adhesive and bling

I used:

  • Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set
  • Garden Green card base and layer panels
  • Basic White layers to stamp on
  • Blender pen to “pull” the poinsettia color
  • Dimensionals
  • Genial Gems to highlight flower centers

Cutting instructions:

  • Card front/base:  5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Two layers matching the card base:  3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ and 3″ x 1-3/4″
  • Basic White layers for stamping:  5-1/4″ x 4″ and 3″ x 3″ and 2-3/4″ x 1-1/2″

How to do it:

  • Stamp the greeting on the smallest Basic White layer.
  • Place all three pieces of Basic White card stock on top of each other, in the same arrangement as the finished photo, overlapping so you can stamp on all three pieces.  Press firmly.  You will see a gap around the edges due to the several layers.  Don’t worry about it!
  • Add the largest Basic White card stock piece (5-1/4″ x 4″) to the card front with adhesive of your choice.
  • Attach the two remaining Basic White card stock pieces to the corresponding colored card stock layers.
  • Add the 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ colored card stock piece (which has the stamped layer attached) to the leftish side of the card front with Dimensionals.
  • Add the greeting layer to the right side of the card front with adhesive on the left side and Dimensionals on the right side.
  • Add any bling or stamped images to the card front.

You are done!

If your card front card stock is darkish, consider adding a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock for writing your greeting–and stamping a coordinating image if you’re so inclined.  Be sure to sign the back of your card–or use a ‘hand-stamped-by’ stamp if you have one.  Let your recipient know that YOU made their special card!
