Floral Triple Stamping- A Fun Technique

Hi Stampers! 

I was able to spend some more time crafting last night and wanted to create a card for the FM193 FloralTriple Layer Challenge and decided to use one of my favorite retired sets, Elements of Style along with Stampin’ Blendabilities™.

If you have not already visited the Friday Mashup! site, I hope you will do so- wonderful Design Team samples as well as the gallery of entries!!

To create this card:

Using Whisper White cardstock, create three squares- one 2x2, one 3x3 and one 4x4.  Layer and adhere the three together and stamp the floral image over the panels using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink (see the SplitcoaststampersTriple Stamping Tutorial here).  

Stamp a few additional flowers to use as accents on another piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Color the flowers using the Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive and  Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collections and add a few shadows with a Stampin' Write Crumb Cake marker.  

Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age the paper and stamp the Gorgeous Grunge large splatter stamp using Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Mount the individual squares onto Night of Navy cardstock and sponge additional Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edges.

Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges of the retired Newsprint Designer Series Paper (DSP) as well as a piece of Raspberry Lemonade DSP.   Layer the two pieces of distressed DSP onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and add the horizontal strip of the Raspberry Lemondade DSP- use a sewing machine to sew the panels together.

Mount the sewn background panel onto a Whisper White cardbase and add the ½ White Tea Lace Paper Doily to the side.  

Adhere the Triple Stamped panel on an angle along with the sentiment banner to the lower left hand side using Stampin’  Dimensionals®.

Fussy-cut the additional flowers and add to the side of the panel and  use a Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen to add highlights to the flower centers.

Adhere the Pearls to the upper right hand corner to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Elements of Style, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Gorgeous Grunge

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive and  Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collections; Stampin' Write Crumb Cake Marker, Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink; Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Night of Navy, retired Newsprint and Raspberry Lemonade DSP

Accessories: Hexagon Punch, Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all have a terrific week!!

Wow, wow, wow! Love this card Julie! Your cards are one of a kind, that's for sure. :) Love that you used a retired set for this. It's one of my favs too and wish they would have kept it around a little longer because it showcases the Blendabilities perfectly! Thanks for joining us this week at the Friday Mashup.
