Triple Time with Paper Not Stamps

Some of you may recall that during an Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party in September, Donna Inks LA shared with us the Triple Time Stamping Technique.  We all had great fun making our own Triple Time Stamping cards to play along - HERE is mine!

My friend Jan Hunnicutt shared on her blog the same type of technique but WITH PAPER instead of stamps!  What a fabulous idea for a way to use up some of the scraps that I've wrangled!  I got busy right away and just look how many cards I made!

Many of these also qualify as monochromatic cards for the OWH Design Bootcamp - ABCs of Color (Basic Color Theory).  If you missed out on the OWH Design Bootcamp, it's not too late to go check it out HERE!  There will be a new "class" every month.

  1. I like to call it Triple Time Matting and have made some great cards to use up scraps as well. Great job on all. The last is my fave, maybe the black ink pops more? DK. Tfs!!!

  2. Nice job! I love the heart ones!

  3. This is wonderful, Allison! A great way to use up scraps!

  4. These are beautiful, Allison; I am definitely going to try "triple time DP"!!

  5. Nice job Allison! I've done that too! It is a great and easy way to use up extra paper.

  6. Fabulous Allison! What a great way to get several cards done and use up paper too!

  7. Oh, I love how you've done this. Definitely something I'm going to have to try! Thanks for sharing.

  8. This is a great group of cards Allison! The contrast of the black framing the colors makes all the difference. Very crisp! I agree that using paper in this Triple Time technique is really clever. I've done a few myself and plan to do some more with some of the papers I've grown bored with, LOL. Thanks for joining in this months Bootcamp.

  9. I can't be totally losing it. I feel in love with all your cool cards using the new/old technique...gotta gotta gotta try it. Super fun, look WONDERFUL, and great way to use some papers.
