Stamped Layered Card

(also called Seamless Tiers or Triple Time Stamping)

by Marie Berquist

For Part 1 of this technique, please click here.

 The stamped layered card technique is a very fun, quick, and easy way to make a very lovely card.   The basic card for this technique consists of simply stacking three layers of cardstock and stamping on all three layers at the same time.  These layers are separated and then restacked with a coordinating solid layer in between.

Here is a sample of this basic style.

 

 

SUPPLIES

 

STAMPS:

Stamp Set 271 - Floral - Daisy Rectangle [00-271P4]

Stamp Set 383 - Religious Sympathy [00-383P4]

 

OTHER SUPPLIES:

Memento Ink - Rich Cocoa [99613]  

1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" [SAT01]     

Cardstock:  White and Brown

Alcohol Markers

Removable Tape

 

1.  Cut layers using the following measurements:

            White –

o   2” x 3 ¼”

o   3” x 4 ¼”

o   4” x 5 ¼”

Brown –

o   2 ¼” x 3 ½”

o   3 ¼” x 4 ½”

o   5 ½” x 8 ½” (Card Base – fold in half)

 

2.  Stack the three white layers, using removable tape to hold them in place. 

 

3.  Stamp the sentiment in the middle and then stamp the flower all over the three layers around the sentiment.  Color each flower.

 

4.  Separate the white layers and then restack them, adding in the brown layers and lining up the images. 

 

 Add to the brown card base.



Options:  This is just the beginning of what you can do with this technique.  Stamps that are more detailed can be stamped in color without the need to color in the image.  You can also stamp the sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock and place this anywhere you want on the card.

Now don’t stop here.  Think outside the box by creating different layouts, but still using the layered stamping technique.  Here is another card that still uses the same number of layers but is just laid out differently.

 

Supplies

 

STAMP CREDITS:

Large Poinsettia [36945-475N]

Holiday Greetings Set [3693-475K]

 

OTHER SUPPLIES:

1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" [SAT01]     

Cardstock:  White and Green Sparkle

Removable Tape

 

1.  Cut layers using the following measurements:

White –

o   2” x 2 ½”

o   2” x 3”

o   4” x 5 ¼”

Green –

o   2 ¼” x 2 ¾”

o   2 ¼” x 3 ¼”

o   5 ½” x 8 ½” (Card Base – fold in half)

 

2.  Layer the white cardstock where they will be on the final card, holding them in place with removable tape. 

 

3.  Stamp the sentiment in green in the center of the smallest rectangle.  Stamp the poinsettia in red all over all three pieces, around the sentiment.

 

4.  Separate the white layers.  Restack them, adding in the green layers and lining up the images.  Add to the green card base.

 

Here is a similar card in red. 

 

Adding some glitter and ribbon really add a touch of elegance.

 

Option:  The two smaller rectangles do not have to be any set size.  Use any size you want to get the layout you desire.  Just cut the length and width of their coordinating solid layer ¼” larger.
