Whether you use one color of ink or three this technique will add color and depth to any of your larger images.

Instructions

  1. Small 109712 2f2015 07 03 003845 img 4290

    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.

  2. Small 109712 2f2015 07 03 003852 img 4292

    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.

  3. Small 109712 2f2015 07 03 003900 img 4294

    Stamp the image onto the first set in your first choice of ink. Once you have all 3 colors that you want stamped, separate each set.

    Now, cut a piece of cardstock that measures 4" x 4 3/4", 3" x 3 3/4" and 2 x 2 3/4". Using the permanent tape runner, adhere the smallest stamped image (which will be the center of your stamp) to corresponding size of cardstock. Repeat with each of the graduates sizes.

  5. Small 109712 2f2015 07 03 003944 img 4298

    Layer each of the sizes of stamped images together making sure to line them up on the edges. Adhere each layer using the permanent tape runner.

    Your triple stamped image is now complete and ready to make into a card.
