Club Card 1: Triple Time French Foliage

I was browsing around for ideas last weekend, and stumbled upon the Triple Time technique by Dawn Olchefske at DOstamping with Dawn. I've always liked Dawn's creations and this technique is just awesome! Simple, yet WOW!! Watch her video and you'll be stamping away in no time!! Just imagine all the stamps that will work with this! I chose leaves because I'm very over Summer and ready to move on to Fall. My girls mentioned snowflakes, flowers, bunnies/eggs for Easter, and more!!

OK, here is the card we made at Club.

This is also one of my favorite Fall sets and color combinations! Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango & Daffodil Delight. Oh, and don't forget the Crumb Cake splatters :)  

The sizes of the layers:

Very Vanilla               Eggplant
2 x 3-1/4                   2-1/4 x 3-1/2
3 x 4-1/4                   3-1/4 x 4-1/2
4 x 5-1/4                   4-1/4 x 11 (base, folded to 4-1/4 x 5)

Line all 3 Vanilla layers up, attach gently together, and stamp. I started with the larger leaf in Elegant Eggplant, then the medium (fat) leaf in Tangerine Tango and lastly the small leaf in Daffodil Delight. We also stamped the saying first on the lower corner of the top layer just so we didn't end up with a leaf right there. After the leaves are stamped, go over it all with the splatter image in Crumb Cake. I stamped some full strength, some off once. Basically, ink and stamp twice before inking again.

Attach your largest Very Vanilla to the card base, and each of the smaller Vanilla's to their coordinating layer, and then together. Before attaching to the base, add a Tangerine Tango ribbon across both layers with an Antique Brad accent. Attach the entire element to the base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Awesome isn't it??!!?? Thanks so much Dawn for this great idea! I hope to find time to play this week and try out a few other sets with this technique!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

This is just too funny. I just posted a card on my blog that I did a couple nights ago. And then I find your post in my inbox. Our cards are very similar except for the colors we used. If you want to see mine go to


I love the blue in your card!

I used this same stamp set for my first try at this technique. Love the stamp set as much as I did when it first came out. This is such an easy but terrific technique.
