Inspired By Stamping: Black and White Layers

Hi, friends!  I'm back today to share an elegant monochromatic card, inspired by THIS CARD by Leah Cornelius and THIS CARD by Eva Bussom, that uses some fabulous stamps from Inspired By Stamping!  Check it out...

I used the *NEW* Cherry Blossoms stamp set for my image, and used the triple time stamping technique.  It's not as difficult as it are the steps:

1. Cut a piece of cardstock the size of your entire image.  Cut two or more other pieces that are smaller and can be layered onto the main panel.

2. Using re-positional adhesive, layer the smaller pieces of cardstock onto the larger one.

3. Stamp your image carefully onto the panels.  You may need to carefully turn it upside down so that you can get a good imprint.  Make sure you use a juicy stamp pad, too!

4. Mat your stamped panels.

5. Layer the panels together, adding dimensional foam to the desired smaller pieces to create more texture.

To create an even more layered feel to my card, I also added a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Greetings set and popped it up like some of my image. 

If you wanted to color in the image, you totally could!  You'd just need to keep the panel adhered together after step 3.  You would then color the image, then mat it.  This technique is SO fun and versatile!  All I had to do to embellish it was add some dry embossing, rhinestones, and ribbon from the Halloween Ribbon Collection!  I hope you like the final result!  Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  That's all I have for you today, but I'll be back soon with more inspiration using fabulous products from the Inspired By Stamping online store.  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

I like your take on the triple time stamping technique! The 'blocking' looks awesome, plus black/white is a striking combination.
