Good Sunday morning all! I think this post will go live long before I do today! LOL I hope you enjoyed the One Day Special shows! I will be filming a live show from Ally Pally next weekend and then one more One Day Special a few days after that! For today's card, I have done a bit of triple stamping! I just love this technique, it is one of those that never seems to miss in my book. I cut three pieces of coconut white card in squares with about 3/4" difference in size and stacked them a top each other. I used the stamp called Heart of Blessings that matches the Heart of Hearts die and inked it with a Black Archival ink pad. I stamped it all over the background so that it caught several of the layers at once. Next I added thin black mats to each of the stamped layers so that the small area between each mat where the stamp doesn't reach becomes covered by the mats and your eye completes the image. I coloured each of the images with Distress markers to add a tiny pop of pink and green to the background, then added mounting foam to raise each of the layers. Finally I stamped one more, coloured it and placed a piece of sticky adhesive sheet over it, cut it out with the matching die, and glittered it with Diamond Sprinkles. I then added a black mat and attached it to the centre of the card. I completed the card with a white pierced mat, a thin black mat and a last white mat layer. The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.
