technique flashback: triple stamping

I am not a big “technique stamper”. I tend to stick to simple, ink-up-the-stamp-and-press and rarely venture from simple stamping. I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone and into other creative approaches to stamping so when I find something fun I’ll share it here as a “technique flashback” (since most of these were invented years ago and you have probably heard about them or even tried them!). There are so many fun ways to stamp that sometimes a technique, just like a tool, needs to be dusted off and used again.

This week, I came across a fun technique that I’d never tried before… it’s called TRIPLE STAMPING…

This technique can be applied with any stamp set and if you’ve never tried it or seen the technique you can find a tutorial right HERE.

For my personal example I chose the A|S Touch of Nature stamp set. My base card is kraft and the image is stamped on sugar with sky matting using french roast ink. I embellished with a tab of french roast satin ribbon and a french roast button. The sentiment is from Essential Sentiments and it’s also stamped in french roast ink.

I’ve seen many examples of triple stamping using not only one large image as I’ve done, but multiple smaller images as well, such as flowers or other botanicals, which also gives an interesting result.

I hope you will give this one a try and take a small step out of your comfort zone, too.
