Very Vintage Triple Stamping

I love this lovely technique it’s so different every time I attempt it and it is sooooo easy just follow my step by step, I also have a video tutorial on my blog somewhere regarding triple stamping.



  1. Step one score and fold a sheet of A4 whisper white card this is now the base card  C5 size
  2. Mat and layer in 1 Highland  Heather  then 1 whisper white then 1 more Highland heather then finally another whisper white. the gap the you want is up to you small or wide it is down  to personal preference, I prefer a small aperture.
  3. Remove the coloured card put onto one side for now
  4. Layer all the white card on top of each other largest is the  base then the next smaller and finally the smallest white on top.
  5. Now ink up stamp and make sure it is well inked while holding white layers down ink and stamp around the outside randomly all around and make sure the stamp is inked up for every attempt at stamping.
  6. stamp sentiment in the middle
  7. Now it is time to mat all the  white and highland heather layers can put tape on or mounting foam the choice is yours start with the base  and work up to the smallest layer.

Sale A Bration ………So hoppy together

I am really loving the free stamps from sale-a-bration this set is really cute nothing like the real thing lol.

To make this card :-

  1. Score and fold a piece of A4 whisper white card
  2. Mat a piece of pear pizzazz card on top leaving a small gap all around
  3. Trim a piece of whisper white this is the layer we will work with.
  4. Using the corrugated emboss folder emboss the top layer the emboss folder fits most of the cards the area that does not fit in the folder leave plain wrap a ribbon over the plain area and tie a bow on.
  5. Using the stitched framelits cut a small circle in white and a larger one in pear Pizzazz this is for the sentiment stamp in pear pizzazz ink.
  6. Using the 2nd size of stitched framelits cut two circles in whisper white stamp the frog on to one.
  7. Then on second white circle I have designed a crear rubber mat to do mirror image stamping using the stamping platform place the rubber mat in here and stamp the frog ,you can re-ink and stamp a couple of times as the mat won’t move its kept in place with magnets, then remove turn over so the inked side is over the white circle and and very gently run a brayer over the image is now reversed and transferred.
  8. You may stamp first then cut out with dies some people find this way much easier.

I really love doing mirror imaging if anyone would like to purchase a mat the cost including postage is £7.60 then just email me 🙂

I have a video demonstrating this mat on facebook I see if I can upload to my blog.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial if you would like to subscribe then you will get a notification every time I place a new blog about twice a week.
