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

Each layer is 1/2" smaller than the previous
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

(could be vanilla or other light color):
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"
3-4-1/4" X 3"

This first one is on Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather card stock.

Here I use colors from the Subtle color family:  So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Highland Heather.

You can create monochromatic cards like this one in Just Jade.  I lined up the card stock in the corner instead of centering each layer, but they are the same sizes as described above.

Here I started playing with different sized layers.  The smallest was determined by the size of a scrap I had.  Nothing too specific!

This was the card I created during my Facebook live on my page on April 5, 2021.
The Bright colors are:  Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grape.

This last card shows more options:  varying shapes and colors.
I stamped on Soft Sea Foam card stock.  The shapes were cut using Stitched So Sweetly dies, and the Detailed Trio punch was used on the corners of the largest Soft Sea Foam layer.  The card base, other layers and ink are Pear Pizzazz.
