Triple Time with a Twist!

Yay!!  It's Friday!!  TGIF!!  How about some stamping inspiration as we head into a weekend??  This week's challenge over at The Technique Twist is Triple Time Stamping.  This fun technique creates some awesome looking projects!  Here is one that I  put together:

Encouragement card featuring the Triple Time Technique and the Serene Silhouettes stamp set with sentiment from Blessings From Heaven.
I began by laying out my pieces.  I really just used scraps of Whisper White card stock I had laying on my stamp desk.  I temporarily adhered them so that I could sponge without them moving around.  HEre are some tips for you:

  • I  created a mask for the sun using the 1-1/4" circle punch and a Post-it note.  
  • Starting from the bottom, I sponged Pear Pizzazz for the grass, then added Old Olive and Always Artichoke toward the bottom. 
  • I then moved to the top and worked my way down with So Saffron, then Crushed Curry, then Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze and finally Cherry Cobbler.  With each new colour I didn't go quite as far down the page so that I ended up with gradually darker shading from the bottom to the top.  
  • I removed the circle mask and sponged the sun with So Saffron.  
  • The silhouette image is stamped in Staz On, as is the sentiment.
  • The mats for each layer are just 1/8" larger, which is narrower than most tutorials suggest for this technique.  I like the narrower mats, as they don't detract from the image as much.
  • I used Naturals White for the card base.

On the inside I stamped the silhouette image again in black Staz On.  I also stamped the sentiment from the Trust God stamp set on scrap Whisper Whiteand die cut it using the Squares Collection framelits.  I then sponged a bit of So Saffron, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango to echo the front of the card.

I am actually planning to send this card to the principal of my son's school, who is battling breast cancer.  She is a wonderful lady who is facing this horrible disease for the second time.  I know it will brighten her day to know many are praying for her recovery.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  If you have time to give this technique a try be sure to enter it over at The Technique Twist...we'd love to see your work!
