Triple Time / Triple layer / Seamless Tiers Class

Here are some sample cards from my October Technique class. The technique is known as various names - some I've come across are Triple Layers, Seamless Tiers but most common seems to be Triple Time stamping.

 This is a great technique for looking at your stamp sets with a fresh set of ideas and seeing another way of using them.

If you would like to learn this creative and fun technique then I will be holding classes on the following dates :-

Saturday October 13th at 1.30pm

Thursday October 18th at 7.30pm

Cost - $15 all materials included. You will receive instruction sheet and make at least 2 cards using this technique. Please bring a paper cutter with you.

Bookings - email me at

I would love to see you there!

Stamp sets used for these cards are Fabulous Florets for the top card and By the Seashore for the lower card.


If my posts are a bit few and far between over the next few weeks - here is the reason. The newest addition to our family.  Her name is Zoe and she is a golden retriever and very adorable!!!

Be back soon - I hope!!!

Holiday Frame Card

Here is another card I made for my Catalogue Launch. I was playing with the embossing folder Holiday Frames (page 7 of Holiday catalogue) and thought it looked a bit plain just embossed on white card so I inked the embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot and this is how it turned out. It shows off the detail of the embossing folder so much better!

A bit of "fussy" cutting, the addition of some Early Espresso tulle behind the embossed piece and a stamped image from "Joyous Celebration" (same page in Holiday catalogue) and my card was done!

Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Naturals White
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Punch - Extra large oval

Hope my card gives you some ideas for your use of the Holiday Frame embossing folder!

Ornament Keepsakes Card

This card started off as a CASE from the Holiday Catalogue but then I decided to make it a bit different if you know what I mean. So the card I was CASEing is on page 3 of the Holiday Catalogue. If you have not seen the catalogue click here to see it.

Here is my card -

I've made the picture bigger so as the extra stamped detail comes out a bit better. I stamped the Real Red card with the flourish from Creative Elements just to break up the expanse of red card and draw the eye to the stamped Christmas greeting.

Card used - Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
Stamps - Ornament Keepsakes, Creative Elements, Greetings of the Season
Ink - Real Red, Old Olive
Extras - Holiday Ornaments Framelits, 1 inch circle punch, Old Olive 1cm tafetta ribbon, Whisper White bakers twine, rhinestone jewel

A good quick card to create for Christmas!

Ornament Keepsakes Non Christmas card

I love the new Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching Framelits in the Holiday catalogue. When I was playing I wondered what other occasion cards I could create and the bulb shapes just stood out to me as flower petals so here is what I made.

The ink colours are Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple.
Card is Whisper White, Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple.
Card size is 4 x 8 inches.

It's always great to get some versatility from your stamp sets!

Catalogue Launch Cards

I have had a lovely day creating cards for my Catalogue Launch tomorrow. I've also had fun trying out lots of new products that have arrived this week in my new catalogue order. So many things to play with!

I tried out embossing folders, new stamp sets, In Colour inks and card, framelits and the new Core'dinations card stock. I do love a good play day!

Here is my card using the Core'dinations card in Cherry Cobbler.

With this style of cardstock you sand over it to take off the top colour layer to reveal the inner core colour. Of course Stampin'Up! have everything in the range you will need to create lovely cards using Core'dinations.

Here I have embossed the Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations with Lacy Brocade embossing folder, then sanded over the raised image to create the distressed effect. The Christmas trees and stars were punched out of the Early Espresso card using the Merry Minis punches and behind the punched out images I layered Champagne glimmer paper.

I couldn't decide whether to add a greeting. I quite like the understated elegance of my Christmas card.

Here is one of the make and take cards my customers will be making tomorrow. I love this new stamp set Papillion Potpourri, mind you I always love a butterfly stamp!

If you want a quick single layer card then this is it! I've used some of the new In Colour inks here - Raspberry ripple, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit. I've stamped the images onto Naturals White card which is new in the 2013 catalogue - have to say "I like!"

Thanks for looking!
