Triple the Fun


Hey Fun Seekers~ it's Judy here, bringing you another fun challenge for this week. I'm so happy to be hosting, hope you like what I have for you.
This week I challenge you to do some triple-time stamping. That doesn't mean to stamp 3 times though, this is a technique that has 3 layers, but one stamped background. I have been doing this technique for a couple of years, and recently Gina from StampTV did a video on it.You can see her video HERE. Gina did two layers for her card, I always do three. But if you want to do only 2, that's fine.

I have a couple of cards for you that use this technique.

This first one has kind of an abstract look.I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets Lots of Letters 2, and Pretty Patterns, both by Melanie Muenchinger, for the background. The greeting is the Gina K Designs My Most Favorite stamp set duo, and I layered it on top of the last panel with some foam tape. Those shapes and patterns are really fun to use for this technique. Papers are Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea, Sweet Mango, and White, and I used Gina K Designs Turquoise Sea, Sweet Mango, and Bubblegum Pink inks to stamp the images. Then I just added a couple of stacked buttons tied together with baker's twine, and some orange Judy Dots.

My next card has a more feminine look:

Here I used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury White and Wild Dandelion card stocks. The images are stamped with Gina K Designs Sweet Corn, and Memento Pear Tart and Tangelo inks. The stamps I used are from the Gina K Designs set Pressed Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger, Simple Flowers by Tami Mayberry, and Flowers Bloom by Rupa Shevde.  The greeting is from Flowers Bloom  as well. I used a die set from Papertrey Ink called Bloom Builders #3 for the flower, cutting it out in white and sponging it with the Sweet Corn ink. The leaves are done with a Martha Stewart punch, and I added some Judy Dots studded with little pearls.

Now for the fine print:
