I hope you are all keeping well! We're going through a bit of a heat-wave here; now, my youngest say "it's not that hot", but at 32Celcius, and with the humidity on top of that - it's just too hot for comfort! It's been like this all week - thankfully, it's supposed to cool down a few degrees on Monday/Tuesday, so I'm looking forward to that!
One of the things I like best about being a SU! demonstrator (besides being able to get my 20% discount on all products! what's not to like about that?!) is the way all the demonstrators share so generously with each other - tips, techniques, etc.
This card that I've done is using a technique called 'Triple Time', because you actually stamp on 3 different sizes of card stock at the same time, and when you layer it with the solid colour card stock in between - well, as you can see, the effect is fabulous!
For this card, my base card and solid layers are the new Midnight Muse card stock. I used one of my favourite stamp sets, 'Elements of Style'; stamping the flowers in Crumb Cake, and the swirls and hummingbirds in Not Quite Navy ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiment, from the 'Loving Thoughts' stamp set on Very Vanilla in Not Quite Navy ink, and I cut the ends banner style and popped it up on the card with dimensionals.
You really should try this technique - it's really a lot easier than it looks! Rather than 'reinvent the wheel', I'm going to direct you to the video by Dawn Olschefske - she explains everything very well, and takes you through step by step. Here's the link to the page on her blog with the tutorial http://dostamping.typepad.com/dostamping_with_dawn/2012/06/triple-time-stamping-video-creative-elements-and-new-naturals-designer-buttons.htmls See what I mean about SU! demo's being super helpful & friendly!
