Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Technique Savvy

Welcome to this month’s installment of the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell in a small town at the very bottom of Illinois smack dab in the middle of the United States!

This month it’s all about TECHNIQUES!  I love all kinds of techniques… There are so many to choose from.  I wasn’t sure what you would like to see, so I just picked something that can be used for any occasion.

May I introduce LAYERED STAMPING!  You may know it as triple stamping, but that doesn’t really work if you are only doing two layers now, does it.

So, here are the cards I made using the technique.

This card uses the Festive Farmhouse suite.  I have two layers.

This card uses the Tags & Tidings bundle. The bows are from the cotton twine found in the farm house suite.

A little candy cane twist using Candy Cane Season.  Same twchiquet, just turn the middle layer.

I used Beautiful Day here and just made smaller layers.

And finally, this card uses the Colorful Season and Many Blessings stamp sets.  The layers were cut using the Layering Oval dies.

So, the basic idea for this technique is cutting multiple layers of graduated sizes with coordinating mats.  The most popular layering is 4″ x 5-1/4″, 3″ x 4-1/4″, 2″ x 3-1/4″ with mats 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (card base), 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″, 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2.  But those measurements aren’t the only ones to use.  It is only limited by your creativity!
