Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features the Sheltering Tree stamp set for a challenge with Broke Stampers Unite. I seem to be having a little theme lately with this stamp set. I’ll have another card Friday. What can I say, this is a wonderful stamp set!
I saw a card on Pinterest from Tami White. I was fascinated by it and couldn’t figure out
how she did it. Once I saw how she did it, I was “Duh, it’s just like triple stamping!” I’m going to call it Double Stamping since it’s two layers.
My card base and colored layer (1 5/8″x 4 3/8″) are Blackberry Bliss. My Whisper White layers are 5 1/4″x 4 ” and 1 1/4″x 4 1/4″.
Now you may be asking “Stace, how do you line up the tree so well?” Here is the secret part. You stamp the tree just one time. Put the tiniest spot of adhesive on the back of the small white layer. ( Bonus tip* I rub the layer on my jeans to make it even less tacky. I don’t want this piece of white layer to be permanently fixed yet. I want to be able to remove it.) I place the small layer on my larger layer. I ink my tree with Early Espresso ink and stamp on both layers at the same time. if you look closely, the tree goes just a little above the white layer.
If you try this at home and you may notice a little gap between the two layer of white. DO NOT PANIC! This is fine. The layer of Blackberry Bliss will cover that little gap.
I carefully removed the small white layer. I first stamped with Hello Honey ink, then scrubbed the stamp with my Stampin’ Scrubber and Stampin’ Mist. I stamped a second time with Tangelo Twist, but I moved my stamp slightly to the left this time to show the first layer. Again I cleaned my stamp. The third time, I stamped with Blackberry Bliss. Moving it slightly to the left again to show the bottom layers of stamping.
Assembly is quite easy. Adhere the small white layer on the colored layer. Align these two layers with your larger white layer so the image has proper alignment. Adhere all the layers to the card base. Now you can amaze your friends with this simple but stunning Double Stamping technique.
