  • How to use a printing techniques. Triple Stamping  - Step 1
    Step 1

    Begin by cutting the piece of cardstock that you will stamp on to measure 3 3/4" x 4 1/2", 2 3/4" x 3 1/2" and 1 3/4" x 2 1/2". The easiest way to stamp using 3 colors of ink is to cut 3 sets of cardstock in these sizes and stamp the image 3 times. Doing it this way will make it easier to line up each layer when assembling. If you only want to stamp in one color create only 1 set of individual sizes.

    Layer 1 piece of each size on top of one another adhering them together with repositionable tape. You will need to separate the pieces later so be sure to use the repositionable type. Repeat this step with each of the sizes so that you have 3 completed sets.
