Triple Time Stamped Reason to Smile

Are you loving the Olympics? I have to say the coverage on Radio 5 Live has been amazing - and means I can carry on crafting instead of being glued to the television!


Today's card was created using the Triple Time Stamping Technique which I first saw featured by an American Demo, Dawn Olchefske. This technique seems to be all over craft blogs at the moment - very simple but effective.
3 pieces of Confetti Cream card were cut, stacked together and secured with a tiny bit of SNAIL Adhesive (you need to separate them once they are stamped). Images from the Reason to Smile stamp set were stamped in Riding Hood Red ink over all three layers. The layers were then carefully pulled apart, matted onto pieces Riding Hood Red card and reassembled.  The sentiment from Sincere Salutations was stamped in Riding Hood Red ink onto Confetti Cream card and then punched out using the Extra-Large Oval Punch and matted onto a Riding Hood Red Decorative Label Punch shape. The Riding Hood Red Pleated Satin Ribbon (from the Summer Mini Catalogue) was wrapped round the top layer which was popped up on Dimensionals, as was the sentiment.
