Topical Tuesday ~ Triple Time Stamping

Hi Guys,

I hope you're all well and enjoying your week!

It's Kylie here for another Tropical Tuesday instalment and today I'm going to show you a super easy technique that I came across in my forever growing 'To Do' list that I jotted down about 18mths ago that I found browsing the net and I thought it was about time I do it lol!

You might of heard of it or even given it a go, today I'm doing 'Triple Time Stamping'

It's so easy and if you love layering like I do then this might be the technique for you!

First off cut all your cardstock...You will need
In coloured CS(I have used brown):
A5 card base 10.5cm X 14.8cm
8cm X 12.3cm
5.5cm X 9.8cm

Neutral cardstock(I have used vanilla)
10cm X 14.3cm
7.5cm X 11.8cm
5cm X 9.3cm

Layer all three of your neutral cardstock using a little double sided tape

Now for the fun part...

Using 'Butterfly Sunshine' Stamp randomly over all the 3 layers.  You will notice a tiny gap but don't worry this will not be see once you assemble your card!

I'm so sorry for the odd colour of the photo, I must off press a wrong button on the camera as I took it and didn't notice until I uploaded the pics, I would off redone it but I ran out of time!

The lighter butterflies are pink and the darker ones are brown, sorry again about the pic!

Now all you need to do is adhere your stamped panels onto your coloured panels!

To finish off your card,  layer all the mats up, trying to line the images up as close as you can

I finished off my card by wrapping some brown twine around my smallest panel before adhering it to the card and stamped 'Dream' onto a tiny tag and tied it onto my twine and for an extra touch I place some 6mm and 3mm Blossom Sprinkles onto the largest butterfly's body!

Supplies Used:
Annabelle Stamps:
~Butterfly Sunshine Stamp Set
~Dark Brown Twine
~3mm Blossom Sprinkles
~6mm Blossom Sprinkles

~Brown and Vanilla Cardstock
~Brown and Pink Ink
~Tag Punch

Thanks so much for joining me and I do hope you give this fun technique a go, the possibilities are endless with different combinations!

Till next time, Take Care,
Kylie X


  1. This is absolutely stunning! I've tried this technique a few times and, even though it takes a bit of time, the results are always so great!

  2. That really is too clever Kylie, I thought it was going to be *really* complicated (I know I would have made it so, sometimes I really do things backwards). TFS!

  3. Love the effect of your triple stamping Kylie - this is going on my 'to try oneday' list for sure! Your butterflies look amazing - hugs xx

  4. Oh, this is lovely! Thanks for the tutorial!
