Triple Layer Birthday Card

I meant to try this triple layer stamping technique for ages ever since the first time I saw someone do it. I wouldn’t say it’s an easy techinique, but it was definitely much easier than it appears. Just google triple layer stamping and you will get all information you need on how to do it. I was inspired by the PPA Sketch Challenge 143, so instead of placing each layer right in the centre of the next bigger layer, I shifted everything towards the top left hand corner.

  • The large flower image from the Elements of Style stamp set is so elegant that I think it was perfect for the triple layer stamping technique.

  • I first stamped a flower image using Pink Pirouette and then the Happy Birthday sentiment using Rich Razzleberry, and finally popped out the image using the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.
  • The circle was matted to a 1-3/4″ scallop circle. I then pierced holes all around the scallop circle to give it an interesting final touch.

Little Friends Christmas

It’s been a crazy month! I finally had some time to sit down and make some cards. I have been wanting to use this image from the Little Friends stamp set to create a Christmas card, so here it is!

  • The image was watercolored using a Blender Pen and the Stampin’ Pads. The present on the girl’s hands was colored in Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green to create the Christmas feel.
  • A piece of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper was used as the background of the card. Don’t you just love the vivid pattern of the paper?
  • I punched the edges of a square piece of Gumball Green card stock using the Scallop Trim Border Punch to create a frame. To do this, just punch once right in the middle of the edge length. Four Basic Rhinestones were added to the four corners of the frame to give the card the bling it deserves.

  • The Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon tied in a knot was there to embellish the card.
