Triple Time Stamping

Isn't this a beautiful card?  I used a technique to make it called triple time stamping.  Follow along if you'd like to learn how to make it.

Start with three pieces of card 
stock that measure 2 x 3 1/4, 3 x 4 1/4, and 4 x 5 1/4.  

Lightly adhere the layers together as shown.  You'll be taking them apart in a couple of steps.  

Use a large stamp.  Ink it up well, and stamp all card stock layers together.  

Your card stock should look like this.

Keeping all the layers together, stamp the other images.

Gently peel the layers apart and mat them on three different sizes of card stock.  The mat sizes shown here are 2 1/4x 3 1/2, 3 1/4x 4 1/2, and 5 1/2x 8 1/2 (folded in half to make the base of my card).  

Now you're ready to adhere the layers back together, add ribbon, and a sentiment.  Pretty easy, wasn't it?  

Materials Used:
Card Stock:  cream, old olive
Stamps:  Wonderfall, Day of Gratitude. Canvas
Ink:  crumb cake, early espresso, tangerine tango, and old olive
Tools:  oval punch
Embellishments:  ribbon

Paper: very vanilla, black, Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP
Stamps:  Spooky Bingo Bits. Jack of all Trades, Tricky Treats
Ink:  black, tangerine tango
Embellishments:  black and gray satin ribbon
Tools:  1 inch circle punch, 1 3/8 square punch
