I have never done the triple time technique before, but I had been wanting to try it. The card turned out pretty well, except I don’t like how the words blended in too much with the green. I had already spent way too much time on this, so I decided to leave it and correct when I make another one. The technique was pretty simple, the sizes of the very vanilla are 4″ x 5.25″ , 3″ x 4.25″, and 2″ x 3.25″. The Primrose petal was cut a 1/4″ larger for each dimension. I used a very very small piece of painters tape to hold my layers together while I stamped.
Hope you enjoy.
Stamps: Secret Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Summer starfruit, primrose petal, gumball green
Paper: Primrose petal, very vanilla
My husband was in charge getting presents for his 5 nieces and nephews. He decided to start shopping today when we need to gifts by tomorrow. After becoming fustrated by the crowds at the stores, he took the typical guy approach by stopping at a bank and deciding to give them all cash. Since I had a certain reputation to uphold, I decided to at least make up some nice money cards. I used the No Peeking Stamp set and leftover Be Of Good Cheer DSP. The solid colors are Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla. I copied the design from Dawn’s Stamping Studio (http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/2008/08/money-card.html)
I think they turned out pretty well for last minute. What do you think?
It is embarrassing to say, but I am still not done my Christmas cards and have most of my shopping left to do. Here is a quick card that I made using the Snow Much Fun set and the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper.
If you are interested in some quick card kits, please check out my etsy store where kits in this DSP color family are still available.
One of my go to stamps this season has been the No Peeking Stamp Set. There are just so many uses for it. Here is a card I made using some leftover materials from a recent class.
