French Foliage in Triple Time


I did say that I had some other ideas for Less is More this week.  Namely, French Foliage in 3 squares.   However the lovely Margaret has already made a stunning example of this idea.  So I've gone in a different direction.  I've lately seen the Triple Time Stamping technique and in particular Cindy's example made me want to have a go. 

I wondered if I could make it CAS and fit into the 3 2 1 challenge at Less is More.  3 of something, 2 of something and 1 of something.  Have I done it?  You can be my judge.  So I have 3 layers, 2 stamps and a spritz. 

Here's how it's done.  I started with a Crumb Cake base, then stamped directly onto the 3 layers of Whisper White keeping them in place.  The smaller leaf is stamped in Old Olive with the second leaf stamped off on scrap first.  Then the larger leaf is stamped in Cajun Craze, cut out with my paper snips and popped up on Dimensionals.  The layers are matted onto Crumb Cake after giving it a spritz with an Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Marker. 

I enjoyed trying this out so much I made another card but this time going to town.  Using all the purples and with a single contrast of Pear Pizzazz.  The central leaf is also cut out and popped up on Dimensionals. 




One of the most common comments I receive from my Stampers 6 is how exciting it is to receive a bag of goodies every month.  And there is always a little surprise from me in their bags too.    With the new Autumn/Winter catalogue live in September and the brand new main catalogue in October, your wish list is bound to be large.  What better way to make this affordable than by spreading out the cost with the Stampers 6 club.  I have a few places left starting in October.
