Triple Time Stamping--Gently Falling

Triple Time Stamping has been a new technique craze.  It made the perfect technique for our stamp club card this month.

The technique is fairly easy to do.  You start with three layers of neutral cardstock.  I used Very Vanilla for mine.  The size of my layers can be found below.  Hold each layer in place with a little bit of TEMPORARY adhesive.  This way the layers do not slide around as you stamp.  
Stamp all over the area as you wish.  Don't forget to stamp the envelope or inside of the card.  You can leave a space for the sentiment or add that as an additional layer later.  Do not be concerned that there are gaps in the design where each new layer starts.  These will be covered up my the mats you add next.

Once you are done stamping, put each layer onto a mat.  Adhere the layers to your project lining up the design as best as possible.  You may have to fuss with them a little this way or that to get them to line up, but I promise they do.  

Mat Layers-  Card Base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 folded in half, 4-1/2 x 3-1/4, 3-1/2 x 2-1/4
Stamping Layers--4 x 5-1/4, 3 x 4-1/4, 2 x 3-1/4
*TIP* All layers are 1" smaller than the next layer or the same cardstock.  Mats are 1/4" larger than the stamped layer.

I also made one with crooked layers.  Simply put your layers in the design you wish to have before stamping.
