Triple Time Stamping Card Kits – Just in Time for the Holidays

Over the past several weeks, I’ve shared a couple of Triple Time Stamping Cards, including a tutorial. The response has been amazing! You like this stamping technique (which, by the way, I did not invent), and I’ve received several messages from you (or from someone who uses your email account) that you can’t wait to try it. Truth is…it’s really easy and really fun once you’ve done all the paper trimming. That’s where I come in!

Do you want the joy of stamping and creating without all the hassle of measuring and trimming? Do you want to make Triple Time cards for Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, swaps, or just the joy of making them? Well, don’t just sit there answering “yes” over and over and over. Here’s your chance to make it happen!

Today I’m happy to announce my FIRST EVER card kits. Here are the 4 quick and easy steps to Triple Time stamping perfection:

1. You pick the card stock and tell me how many you want.
2. I ship them to you.
3. You receive them from me.
4. You spend a joyous afternoon stamping away.

All you have to do is stamp with your favorite stamp set and assemble. Each set comes with your choice of color for the card base (the colored card stock) and the card front (the neutral pieces on which you will stamp). I will trim all the paper and will even add the temporary adhesive between the card front layers. All you have to do is stamp them and assemble them. Yipee!

Here are your color choices:

CARD BASE (pick one): More Mustard, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse
CARD FRONT (pick one): Whisper White, Very Vanilla

Here are your kit choices:

KIT ONE ($12): includes 6 pre-cut Triple Time cards & coordinating envelopes
KIT TWO ($28): includes 15 pre-cut Triple Time cards & coordinating envelopes
KIT THREE ($45): includes 25 pre-cut Triple Time cards & coordinating envelopes

A couple of details: Once you place your order, I will send you a PayPal invoice. I will ship out orders as soon as I am able. Depending on demand, I may have to order more paper. As long as orders are placed before October 8, then I will get your paid order shipped out by October 18. $6.00 will be charged on each separate order. I will combine orders. Shipping only available inside the U.S.

Oh! I almost forgot! In two randomly-selected orders, I will include a $10 gift certificate toward a Stampin’ Up! purchase from me. I secretly hope it’s you!

Since you’ve been such a good friend to read through my card kit advertisement and place your order, I want to share a sneak peek of tomorrow’s card (another version of a Triple Time Stamping Card). There’s triple time stamping, water coloring and gold brads, oh my!

If you kept reading to see the sneak peek and didn’t place your order, here’s your second chance (I am so considerate, aren’t I?):

Build a Chevron Tutorial

I’m back with my Merry Moments Scrappin’ Kit Designer Series Paper (that was a mouthful). Breathe. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I fell in love with this diagonal print. The Old Olive and Very Vanilla stripes (with touches of Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray) are rich and lucious in this design. I ached to see it in a chevron pattern, so guess what I did. Did you guess, or did you just keep reading? Be honest. That’s right, I made a chevron:
stampwithbrian.com - Build a Chevron TutorialAs you can see (you have a very discerning eye!), I wasn’t perfectly lined up with my strips of DSP along the top of the card, but it’s those “mistakes” that let the recipient know it was handmade with love, right? Now, stop focusing on my error and let’s learn how to make a chevron with diagonally striped DSP.

Tutorial: Making a Chevron with Diagonally Striped DSP

You can certainly change the measurements of the strips, but I’m going to walk you through how I did it. It just makes it easier that way (can you imagine how long this post would be if I gave you ALL the options for the length and width of the strips?).

  • STEP 1:  I trimmed a couple of 1″ strips from the DSP. Let’s say, for clarity’s sake, the bottom of the DSP.

  • STEP 2:  I turned the paper on it’s side and trimmed a couple more 1″ strips. Notice how the stripes are going in a different direction?

  • STEP 3:  So, I have strips from the bottom of the DSP and from the side of the DSP. I lined up the strips, alternating between the ones I trimmed in step one and the ones I trimmed in step 2 above. Line up the strips so that you get the most coverage with the paper.

  • STEP 4: Before beginning to trim the pieces into one beautiful chevron, I wanted to make sure I could get the most out of the pieces I had. Looking at the bottom line of all five pieces, the the fourth strip is the shortest. I used that piece as my measurement for the rest.
  • STEP 5: I trimmed piece 4 to 5″, trimming away the top part of the strip.
  • STEP 6: I set piece 4 on my paper trimmer and lined it up with the trimming valley (that’s my pet name for the place where the blade will ultimately cut). I then placed piece 5 on my paper trimmer and lined up the chevron patterns with piece 4. Holding piece 5 in place on the paper trimmer, I removed piece 4 and then trimmed piece 5.

  • STEP 7: I trimmed piece 5 to 5″, trimming away the top part of the strip.
  • STEPS 8-10: I continued these steps until all five strips were trimmed and lined up – 5 one-inch wide strips at 5″ long each.
  • STEP 11:  Sit back and enjoy.
