Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway (Triple Stamping)

 Hello crafters!  It's a triple stamping technique card for the giveaway this week so I hope you like this one!  It is one of my favourites from the Justrite Christmas shows.  To do this technique, you need to cut three pieces of card that are sized so that the largest one is on the bottom, up to the smallest one on the top.  Then cut matching mats for them, but don't attach them until after the stamping has been done.  I decided to add a little twist to the technique by covering each of the layers with Iced Snow (seeing they were snowflake stamps, I thought it only fitting that I "iced" them!).  I put a piece of sticky tape between all the layers to hold them in place before stamping. Using the Justrite snowflake and three colours of Adirondack ink pads (Clover, Pool and Denim), I stamped the snowflakes so that they went off of all of the layers in the different colours.  I carefully took the layers apart then covered each one with a sticky adhesive sheet, peeled the backing off then coated them with Iced Snow.  For the middle and bottom layer, I added a piece of copy paper to the very centre before coating it with the Iced Snow so I only needed to do the exposed edge areas.  I taped the mats on to each layer then added mounting foam between them.  The mats cover the void left from where the stamp cannot get to the area between the layers so your eye picks up a complete image.  I stamped my sentiment and the Snowflake Labels Seven in Cobalt Archival ink then cut it out with the matching die. While still in the die, I inked it with the Pool Adirondack ink.  I used a decorative die from the Tranquil Moments die as a pretty piece peeking from under my sentiment.  The sides of the piece were cut straight prior to mounting it underneath.  The card was finished with a flatback pearls and a double white mat with a pierced layer and a thin cobalt blue mat.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.  If you would like to be included in the drawing for this one, just leave a comment!  The winner will be announced on Saturday's blog post!  All for now, Sue x

I think this card is stunning and so clever. I watched the show when you were demoing this card, I have never tried doing anything like this before and it's certainly something I've get planned to do.
Take care.

Thank you I bet it is going to be great fun for you both on the road.
To all Wilsonettes have a good day and take care. Kitty.

Virginia Davey said...

Morning love this card thanks for showing us how to do it on TV .

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. Simply stunning! I loved this card when you showed it on tv, great tip about putting copy paper in the centre of the bottom layers so you don't use too much iced snow.
Sue xxx

Maria Illsley said...

I love this style of card Sue. I saw you demo the technique. I have tried to replicate it but my finished card was no where as good as yours. But I will keep practising xxxx

Jackie Meechan said...

Gorgeous card I saw you demo it. Love the colours. Only saw one of Julia's shows yesterday in the morning before everyone else was up as schools are finished here for summer holidays in Scotland but unusually weather has been reasonably good. Hope everyone has a good day.

Really loved triple stamping when you demonstrated it on TV. Would love to see (and own!) the card in real life.

Sandra Biggs said...

Hi Sue
Another stunning card. L>ove the effect and well what can we say about Iced Snow. Keep crafting and giving such inspiration.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. I love your Triple stamp cards, I must to have a go myself as I love the wonderful effect! This snowflake stamp is perfect for this one, and the colours are beautful too. Great tip about not wasting your Iced Snow, thank you. Would you and Julia consider coming to Oxford Swindon area next year. I am not sure why but we have a big shortage of craft shops and it goes without saying that we would love to see you two : )
Pam, sending my daily hugs, do you have to wear a funny shoe that means you can only put your heel to the floor, for the 6 weeks or just no putting your foot to the floor at all? Fingers are still firmly crossed for more progress with Robbie.
Norah, so pleased that you enjoyed your time with Frances. Please don't ever stop your imagination from running away, your descriptions of your hills make my day that bit brighter as I can imagine what they look like each day : )
Sending hugs to all in need and all of my special blog friends.
Take care.

Dawn Searle said...

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
A beautiful and festive gift today. I love snowflakes and never tire of trying to catch them to see if I can catch the patterns. (You'd think that at my age I'd know better but no there's still that little girl in me that used to love playing in the snow and sledging wherever I could - those were the days). I've still now opened my jar of iced snow yet but my fingers are itching so it won't be long.
I had an update yesterday from my daughter re her 'hospital' list. She has released 3 ducks (mallard and tufted) 1 pigeon has started a slow release with the squirrel who had been found by a lady when very small and kept it as a pet. It may be too late now but she is trying. On the sad side she has lost one of her hens to old age and one pigeon which just died. Birds are notorious to just doing this. On the intake she has taken in 1 mallard which has been attacked by some animal and a clutch of baby sparrows which were found at the bottom of a tree and no sign of an adult anywhere.
Lynda Happy birthday have a really good day.

Hope all who are not 100% feel better day by day. Take care and I'll see you tomorrow.
Janet x

PharmacyMichele said...

Todays card is just stunning! Of course the snowflakes had to have some "sparkle"!!!


Maureen Killen said...

Good morning Sue,
and all the ladies.
This is a stunning card and the ice snow is a show stopper. Fabulous!
Norah, glad you and Frances had a good day. It would lift both your spirits.
Sue and everyone, have as good a day as you can.
I'll catch up on everyone's blogs
later today.
Love to all xx

Marion Bull said...

Loved this card when I saw it on C & C and love the triple stamping technique. It took me a while to get the sizes right when I tried it some time ago but it is real effective.

Good morning Sue &friends,
Love this card and technique, watched you demo this on C&C, it's the little things you think of that make you a genius, like not wasting iced snow on th unseen parts of the card. I was looking at some sample cards in an advert for some products on a show today, the cards are ok, but they just don't look finished off! hath at is just my opinion!
I do hope all of you lovely Wilsonettes are well and enjoying the sunshine!

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Saw this one on C&C and loved it then. The triple stamping is fabulous and the iced snow really adds some lovely bling. You will love Haverfordwest on Saturday - we spent 5 weeks every year in our caravan at St Petrox just outside of Pembroke and regularly played golf at Haverfordwest . It is just a beautiful part of Wales and very friendly. I'm just sorry that I can't be there. It used to take us 10 hours to get there from Durham with the caravan!
Pam very gentle hugs to you - don't want to knock you off balance! Happy birthday to our birthday girls, daily hugs to Norah, Steph,lLindsey & horses, Lynne & Tilly & Cully (although haven't heard from you lately need an update on the pesky critters), Gail hope things are ok with you. To everyone else have a fabulous day and sending lots of love to you all. Love Alisonxxx

Roberta said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,

Stunning card, I think it could work well with other stamps for a non Christmas card. It has inspired lots of ideas to delve into my old stash of stamps to see what would work, go retro. Your cards always make me think of ideas. Thanks so much for the continued inspiration.

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, hope you have all woken up to a bright warm sunny day.
I too remember this from your C weekend and slapped a dirty great blue K next to the recording, as I do ALL your show's so at least I can waych and learn again and again. Im determind to improve if its the last thing I do !
A snowflake with no twinkle isnt a snowflake, so it was only good manners to add iced snow LOL the more the better in my C rule book !
Only I end up with more twinkle than my cards and like those pesky flakes, it follows me around (no hiding when using twinkles) !!
On that note, Id love your twinkles to follow me round so for myself and all Wilsonette I wish us good luck for Saturday.

Happy Birthday Lynda.
Gentle soothing hugs for you Pam.
Hope Bubble n Sqweek arnt too sore Tina E

And to all lovelies out in Sue land I send caring gentle hugs to help you through your day.

Love you.

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
A simply stunning card. I had a go at doing this technique a couple of months ago with flowers on paper though. It didn't look very good on paper but using the snowflakes looks wonderful. So I shall have another go and try the iced snow on it. I have the diamond sparkles, so must look for this one. Perhaps at Newbury show on Sunday.
I actually managed to what one of the Christmas shows and bought this one, but will have to wait at least a week before it's dispatched. Mrs B how on earth did I miss your post yesterday, seeing as it was just above mine. I did so back and saw your post and posted about 9.00 ish. Anyhow I said perhaps we could meet up in Witney next Wed for a coffee. If you'd like to suggest where and the time which suits you best we could meet outside. Hugs to Pam, Norah and Steph as per usual. Wouldn't it be lovely if Sue or Julia could come down this area. There must be other people on this blog around this area to make it worth while.

Mrs B said...

Hi Pat.S, Witney. Can I email you? I can't make next week. Wed 23rd outside M&S with Sandra hopefully. Take care.

Love this card, the colours are so good with all the sparkle


Janhass said...

Great card Sue, love the colours and of course the sparkle. Had to purchase the sparkle as they enhance any card. Have a good trip to the north, don't work too hard. Xx

Robin said...

I really must get my ice out and use them. Lovely card Sue

SusieB said...

Hi Sue, I love this technique but I have been really unsuccessful with it. If I was to win at least I would have something to compare mine with.

Have a really good day, beautiful sunshine here.

Love and hugs

Alice G said...

Hi Sue, this was probably my favourite card from your shows. I think this technique is just class. I've tried it myself with different stamps and it turned out really well. I need to try it with the extra bling though because that really adds such an extra dimension. I'd so love to win this one!

Hugs Alice xx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
gorgeous, gorgeous card, love everything about it. And the sparkle is just the icing on the cake!
Hugs, Rose

lejo said...

Wow Sue this card is beautiful. My idea of Christmas. Snowflakes and sparkle, what else would you need x

hazel said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful Christmas card. I saw you demo this one on C&C and forgot how you made it so thank you so much for adding this one to your blog will be able to make it now
Anyone would be lucky to own this beautiful card,Good luck everyone
Take care
Hazel G xx

Maggie said...

Hello Sue. I saw this idea when you demonstrated it and tried it out straight away and had such a great result. Would love this card - wouldn't give it away of course - it would have pride of place on our mantlepiece throughout the xmas period. xx Maggie (better without a bow)

Hi Sue,
I saw this on the TV and I wondered how you'd managed to match the layers up so precisely - now I know! I'm definitely trying this technique out, I must get my hands on some iced snow - it's so beautiful, especially on dark blue card like another of your cards! Lovely card as always, and I'd love to win it. I love blues and greens together, I'm not a pink person. If anyone knows of a cure for sticking quilled blooms on every card, I'd love to hear it ;-). By the way, can't wait to hear tales of your road trip with Julia! Love Caroline xx

Maxine T said...

Love the iced snow, also the three layer stamping, would love live to have thus one.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
This is the one card i did get to see you make in peace and quiet Sue and i think it is lovely. There is a lad that went to school with my daughter who is a Witness, so i always have sent him a different type of card at the Christmas season as i always felt sorry wee Ryan couldn't get any cards and this would be a lovely one now he is all grown. I will say though if this came winging my way, it certainly wouldn't be given away, so i will just make him one of his own.
OK, who was telling Sue as she did the video "Sue, you've forgotten a corner", no, no-one else, so just me telling her this morning when watching yesterdays video and she heard me, because she said in the next breath about it. I have looked at the different stamps that you have for the dies and really couldn't decide, but the one on yesterdays card i think is definitely going to be the first, as it is so pretty.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYNDA, i hope you have a wonderful day flower and enjoy it.
Pam, wise words and wisdom are not normally associated with me, but i hope that you are being able to pass what can seem like forever taking your mind off your pain. You've seen C&C advert for the weekender's that they have with you having your flask and sandwiches already so that you don't miss a thing, well just imagine that is the reason for being seconded to your settee. I hope that your pain subsides soon though flower, so take it easy. I always look it when i have to behave that it is my brain saying "Well if you wont sit down, i'll make you", so if you have to be in one place, you may as well enjoy it as much as you can.
Aha Clare, there was us thinking it was the golf you were going for and here it is the after match aperitifs that is pulling you to the club. Have a great day flower, and i hope you win.
Janet(Ecco)- why lose those care free days of being young just because you have aged. I love the snowflakes and snow for the same reasons and making "angels" in the snow, which from seeing films our American friends know all about Snow Angels. In our first house when i was wee, we had a big old staircase that had 3feet either side of a 6foot runner. We used to get my mums metal trays and come down the stairs on them. Mum wasn't too pleased when her trays turned out all bent, but it was fun. It had a big winding bannister that we used to polish for her, sliding down it to the bottom and because it just curled around, you didn't get a sore thump on your back from the knoll end piece, you got sore bottom from landing on the stone floor. Did it stop us? What do you think? But i'm sorry that some of your daughters patients didn't respond to their treatment.
Lynne, i hope you feel like yourself again soon. I am missing what Tilly and Cully are upto with their latest demolition antics. Have you ever thought of putting them up for hire as garden demolishers? It could bring in a much welcomed extra income.
Hi Lee, i hope that Julie can be back with us again soon Lee, but i am sure as an honorary Wilsonette you are very welcome to join in Sue's blog. Sorry that Julie is going through a rough time again, i can only hope that she is better soon.
Well it looks like someone has been out with their charcoals with the sky and hills like they are today, but that is ok as it is nice otherwise.
Sending gentle hugs to all our friends that need them,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Beth T said...

I love the triple stamping technique and the addition of the glitter-very pretty.

CraftyJo said...

I love your version (with the glitter) of TripleTime Stamping - a technique I love (and taught at my local stamping club). Very festive :)

Pattyb said...

How gorgeous, Sue! I love this technique, and using the iced snow just really made the snowflakes POP!

hotpotato said...

Sonia Stephenson said...

Hi. Wow - I so love this card. Great technique (which I must try) and the added sparkle is stunning. Have a lovely day. Hugs to all xx

SusanP, Kent said...

I really like this technique and have tried it a couple of times - much easier than it looks as though it should be. I saw your demo for this. These stamps are fab.

Morning Sue and fellow bloggers.
Saw this demo on C&C and must say it is an ingenious technique. Must try this one. Love Caz x

Anonymous said...

Love the triple stamping effect and a fab card with all those snowflakes.

Susan Sumner said...

Hi Sue and everyone. I watched you make this card on C&C and decided I must give it a try. I've always believed that I couldn't do stamping although I do lots of other crafty disciplines. Thanks to Chloe Endean I've now decided that I can (and will). I love this card and as my stamps are now here I will be setting myself down to have a go as soon as I get a minute. Just loving learning and playing with my new stamps, inkpads and of course sparkly pretty glitter. Love your demos, you make it look so easy that it makes me have a go. Such an inspiration. I will be following your blog now and look forward to getting to know some of your lovely followers. Wishing everyone all the best and happy crafting xx

Saw you demo this (or a similar one) Sue on C&C - clever technique with the mats deceiving our eyes into thinking there's no gaps. It's a lovely card, especially with the sparkles.
Yes!! AnneRD and Heather T - after our long wait, we're almost there. See you on Saturday at Haverfordwest. And to Sue, it will be Croeso!! (come rain or shine).

'P' in Wales

Lynda - Happy Birthday!
Julie and Lee - hugs to you both and wishing you better days. Also to all our friends in any sort of need.

Barbara said...

Gorgeous card even if it is a Christmas one! Love the iced snow background and think you are right Sue you should get them in a bigger tub like the micro beads.

When are we getting a sneak peak of your new dies?
Will we be able to buy them soon?

Watched both of Julia's shows yesterday, Nigel made her blush and Martyn made her laugh. I think you two will have a great time on your road trip!!!

Lovely card as ever Sue, I love the colours nice change from the traditional christmas colours. This particular card would be suitable for someone dear to you especially a male with maybe one or two tweeks, although I like it just the way it is.

Maria Alder said...

Hi Sue and everyone!
Fabulous card,love the triple stamping,colours and snowflakes.Thank you Sue for everything you making for us to see and give us great inspirations every day. As I have not a craft room all my things are stacked all around the bedroom and on windowsill.With the warm weather my husband decided it was good to open the window for some air.Oh my,it was a crash soon after and some words,not to be repeated,from my husband when 3 boxes full of beads, ribbons etc. fell to the floor.A real mess it was,however it's giving me a chance to a clear out I guess:) Hugs to one and all who need one. Missing to hear about Tilly and Cully,hope all is fine. Have a nice evening,Maria

Annie said...

Hi Sue,
Loved this card when you were on C and C, it's so clever the way you have built it up, making you think that each layer is stamped individually. I would love to win this card.
Looking forward to hearing all about yours and Julia's travels and demos, I'm sure you will be exhausted but will have a very very good time.
Take care, Love Brenda xxx

Love and BIG crafty hugs to everyone
