Pals Blog Hop February 2015

Pals Blog Hop Feb 2015 craftcarnivore.com
Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop February 2015. This month we are sharing what we love – our favorite Stampin’ Up! products and our favorite crafting techniques.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Sue Becker at RnRStamping. Use the full lineup below to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the new projects.

One of my all time favorite techniques is Triple Time Stamping. I just think it is such a beautiful and unusual technique, and one that can be used in more than one way. As for my favorite products? Well, all of them, duh! But I have to admit I am always a sucker for a stamp set that has a coordinating punch. Not gonna lie! If it has a punch, I’ll have to have the whole set. Unfortunately, I’m running out of room to hide them. Any ideas? I have them stuffed in a couple of dresser drawers right now, but they’re so heavy to open I’m afraid they’re gonna break one of these days. 🙂

For today’s Hop I’ve chosen to use the new Petal Potpourri Bundle to show you the basic Triple Time Stamping technique (for a complete list of products used go to the end of this post).:

Here is how I’ve used it in my first sample:

If you’re not familiar with this technique, I posted a tutorial in a previous post, here.

In the next sample you can see that I’ve chosen to highlight just a small image with this technique, using the new Guy Greetings set from the Spring Occasions catalog:

And finally, I wanted to show you that you can use this same technique with embossing and not have to use stamps at all. For this one I used the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Annual Catalog:

I tried to get a sharp enough picture so you can see how the embossed arrows line up on the card. (And PS, the stamp, paper, ribbon, and button I’ve used are all exclusive products you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-Bration). Loving that color combination!

Here’s a card I made a couple of years ago using triple embossing:

    Great cards! I love that you used the variety of stamps on the first card–really showcased that set well. And I love the triple-embossing idea. But the classic car “call out” you did using this technique is just perfect!

  2. Carol Carriveau says:

    I am absolutely crazy about triple stamping – and your cards are lovely! Thank you for the great inspiration – especially the Classic card – for my husband’s upcoming Father’s Day card!

  3. Amy – your cards are beautiful! I am also a fan of that style but the classic card was new to me and I will def be casing. Most off your dialogue was really enjoyable – “all of them, duh!” thanks for the belly laugh!

    These cards are WONDERFUL! You sound like me when you talk about hiding your stamps, though. Now I just say,”I’m almost ?? years old. Get over it!” (And I have too many to hide, anyway).
