Triple train - two cool

Rollin' Down The Tracks!  Bring the Traveler train to life with the fun double-time or triple-time stamping technique!  The image really pops off the card!   

Triple train - double

My first card uses two layers and a clean & simple look. I used the Double-Time Technique of stamping on two layers at once, then framing the layers and popping them up with Dimensionals.  It's a variation of the Triple-Time Technique.  <<<Click to learn how.

Triple train - double2 

Double-Time Simple—I layered a 2" x 2" piece of Very Vanilla onto a 3" x 3" piece of Very Vanilla with some temporarily adhesive, then stamped the train image onto the center with Memento Black Ink.  The image is just a little larger than the top piece, so a tiny bit of it spills over onto the bottom layer…a subtle, yet cool effect!

After stamping, pull apart the layers, then mat them on a 2-1/8" square and 3-1/8" square of Basic Black, popping them up with the foam Dimensionals. 

Triple train - double3 

Background Basics—The 4" x 5-1/4" Crumb Cake background is embossed with Stylish Stripes, then wrapped with a piece of 7/8" Natural Cotton Ribbon and adhered to the Very Vanilla card base. 

Sweet Sentiment—I added a small greeting from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set, punched with the Modern Label Punch.  I punched another shape from Basic Black, then cut it in half and repositioned it under the sides of the sentiment before adhering with more Dimensionals.

Rhinestones—Your class kit will come with a full package of Rhinestone Jewels, so I added a few sparkling accents to the focal point.

Triple train - triple

Inspired by Pat Mayer at Pat's Stampin' Place.

I stepped up the second version by adding one more layer to the stamping! 

Triple train - triple2 

Triple-Time Sponged—This time I added a 1" square layer to the top of the stack that's temporarily adhered together.  After stamping on all the layers at once, I pulled them apart and sponged the edges with Memento Black ink.  You'll receive one Stampin' Sponge in your class kit that you can cut into pie shapes for sponging with several colors!

I matted my Vanilla pieces onto squares that were 1/8" larger and popped them up with Dimensionals.  Wow!  That train really makes a fun 3D image!

Triple train - triple3 

Finishing Details—This time, I embossed with the Argyle Folder, and used a different sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness set.  What a handsome card!
