Triple Stamping (and more) using Dragonfly Garden
I was inspired by the card on page 81 in the January-June mini catalog. I enjoy looking at a project and trying to figure out how it was created.
At first glance, this card seems quite simple. Except the flowers were heat embossed using Versamark ink and white embossing powder on Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is stamped on a rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set (item 151690) and the dragonflies were created using a punch. Stampin' Up! defines 'simple stamping' as a project that uses only stamps, ink and paper (card stock). So you see this is anything But simple.
I decided to create a similar card using fewer products.
I did switch the ink to Tuxedo Black and use Basic Black card stock to coordinate. The sentiment is on a simple rectangle scrap.
I have one last card with different colors and an extra layer under the sentiment.
Now onto Triple Stamping. This technique probably comes from the 3 layers of card stock that are stamped on.
The standard layers in these first 4 cards are:
Darker Card Stock
1-Card base: 4-1/4" X 11" folded at 5-1/2"
(could use 5-1/2" X 8-1/2" folded at 4-1/4" for side fold card)
2-5" X 3-3/4"
3-4-1/2" X 3-1/4"
White Card Stock
Each layer is 1/2" smaller than the previous
The largest here is 1/4" smaller than the largest dark card stock
1-5-1/4" X 4"
2-4-3/4" X 3-1/2"
