Triple Time stamping

For today's card I thought I would try a technique that is very popular at the moment it is called triple time stamping or seamless tiers. For this I used some very old supplies, wood mounter stamps from PSX and Lucy stamps, Adirondack inks, butterscotch, latte, current, terracotta and a skeleton leaf. In fact the PSX leaf is one of the first stamps I purchased 13 years ago.
 While I found this fairly easy to create I found this link on do stamping with Dawn that explains it with a video tutorial.
Have fun creating, I know I will be making more perhaps even as a quick Christmas theme cards.

21st flip it

Today's card is another 21st one, made with the sizzix flip die. A great card to make when you want something special without a great deal of effort. The stamped image is from My Favorite Things I am certainly getting to use is alot this year.

 I used my bow maker for the bow, the ribbon and buckle and gems stones are from my stash of supplies. And the card is double sided card stock that I have had for years. The verse inside is from stampin up.

This is another stamp that I purchased from the show. It is from stamp it Australia. I used a background stamp for texture then stamped the butterfly in black ink and highlighted the wings with h2o's.

Yeah it is time to celebrate, I have a new computer notebook this time, my old one was only 5years old, but wow so many things have changed. None of the programs that I am used to are on this one, so it has taken me ages to get work out how to do things. This is the first photo I have downloaded from my very old camera, the kodak program was not compatable, so I am trying windows live photo gallery.
This a Penny Black stamp that I purchased at the papercraft show back in June. I have coloured it with copic pens and dressed dit up with ribbon and a button.
