What a great challenge Kris has given us over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  “Triple Layer Card“.  I have never made one of these previously & of course, me being me, decided that I would not do your typical Triple Layer as I sort of off-centred it a little, including having my layers a little smaller too.

Measurements –
Base Card – Pool Party – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Crumb Cake – 4″ x 5 3/4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 3 7/8″ x 5 5/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Crumb Cake – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ or 11.5cm x 8.5cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 3 1/8 x 4 3/8 or 11cm x 8cm
Layer 5 – Crumb Cake – 3 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ or 8.5cm x 6cm
Layer 6 – Whisper White – 3 1/8″ x 2 1/8″ or 8cm x 5.5cm

Supplies –
Ink Set – Rue Des Fleur, Established Elegance, En Francais
Ink – Crumb Cake, Pool Party
Cardstock – Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pool Party
Ribbon – 1/2″ Seam Binding – Pool Party
Accessories – Snail Adhesive

I run a small piece of Snail Adhesive on the backs of the small pieces of Whisper White Cardstock – this Snail should be so that it is temporary.  I placed the pieces on top of each other so that you think you are actually going to stamp one piece of Cardstock.  I inked my Background Stamp with Crumb Cake, stamped off once & then stamped over all 3 pieces of Whisper White.  I decided what I wanted for my main image & stamped it in Pool Party – Umbrella. The remainder of the images were randomly stamped over the pieces of Cardstock in Pool Party & Crumb Cake Inks.

Once my images had been stamped, my cards were carefully separated & the Crumb Cake Matts were adhered to the corresponding Whisper White pieces.  As I didn’t want anything else on the card, I adhered all 3 pieces into place, ensuring that the stamped images matched prior to adhering.

To finish my card, I tied a small bow with Seam Binding & attached to the card.

We hope you will find the time to play along with us this week, as it is a great challenge & the perfect time to create one of these great cards.  Believe me, once you do one, you will be hooked.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Our challenge this week was set by Gwen.  Along with the sketch we have to use Embossing on our cards, ie Heat Embossing or Dry Embossing using your Big Shot & Embossing Folders or any other Embossing that you may like to try.

I’ve been playing with colours the last couple of weeks & decided to go ahead with one of the combinations I found I really liked. 

Measurements –
Base Card – Whisper White – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 22cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Basic Gray – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9cm
Layer 3 – Not Quiet Navy – 1″ x 5 5/8″

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Perfect Punches, Nature Walk, French Foliage, Established Elegance
Ink – Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy
Cardstock – Whisper White, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy
Ribbon – 5/8″ White Organza
Punches – Scallop Trim Border, Scallop Oval
Embossing Folder – Vimtage Wallpaper
Accessories – Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive, Big Shot

I randomly stamped my images onto the smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Marina Mist & Not Quite Navy Inks.  The whole piece was put through the Big Shot using Embossing Folder – Vintage Wallpaper.

I punched along both sides of the piece of Not Quite Navy Cardstock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, adhered the ribbon along the middle, tucked the ends under & tied a knot.  This whole piece was then adhered to the piece of Basic Gray Cardstock & finally to the Base Card – Whisper White.

I stamped the wording onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Not Quite Navy Ink, punched with the Scallop Oval Punch & adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Don’t forget to hop on over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to check out what the other girls have created.  This is the perfect time to dig out those Heat Tools or your Big Shot & join us this week for this fun challenge.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!
