Triple Time Stamping


I recently posted two of my Technique Class cards using the Triple Time Stamping Technique and have gotten a lot of requests on how to accomplish this technique. Here are the instructions:

The dimensions are as follows:

Very Vanilla

  • 2″ x 3-1/3″
  • 3″ x 4-1/4″
  • 4″ x 5-1/4″

Early Espresso

  • 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • 3-1/4″ x 4’1/2″
  • 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (fold in half for card base)

Center and adhere all Very Vanilla pieces with temporary adhesive and stamp greeting and/or images on these layers.
Separate Very Vanilla pieces and start adhering all pieces with permanent glue.
Start with your Early Espresso Card Base (folded in half)
Center and adhere the 4” x 5-1/4” Very Vanilla piece on top
Center and adhere the 3-1/4” x 4-1/2” Early Espresso piece on top
Center and adhere the 3” x 4-1/4” Very Vanilla piece on top
Center and adhere the 2-1/4” x 3-1/2” Early Espresso piece on top
Center and adhere the 2” x 3-1/4” Very Vanilla piece on top to finish

Here are a few more samples, the first one was a card I made for a swap in August 2012 and Linda Heller featured it in Stamping School. SS01 Triple Time Stamping

Here are a few more samples I found on Pintrest.

This one is from Heidi, notice how she angled the layers before stamping.
TTS 02
Linda did an excellent job off centering the layers.
TTS 03
Robin also off centered the layers.
TTS 04
Another traditional sample by Frenchi.
TTS 05
Patti used Designer Series Paper to cut out her main layers. You can achieve this with nesting framelits.

I used the new Layering Squares Framelit Dies for this effect. These framelits have different size squares and scallops.

  1. Here’s a triple stamp I have done last year. It’s a great technique but a little difficult ……….. takes a lot of time to do.
