Triple Time Stamping.

Happy Sunday crafting chums,

Its technique week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and this week the technique is 'Triple Time Stamping'. I have for a while admired this technique but not got around to actually trying it out. So today I set some time aside to watch this video and give it a go!

I used the Casual Fridays 'Merry Kiss-mas' stamp set and based on a this calendar topper I made last year.

And here is how it turned out:

It was a lot of fun to make and I am happy-ish with the result. I had to add a couple of holly fussy cut pieces and gems to the left hand side as I wasn't happy with how the holly looked there. However I thought this 'cover up' looked pretty good!
And I had enough time to decorate the inside of the card:

I am trying to learn some new techniques this year so Triple time stamping can now be ticked off. A little more practice and hopefully you will see me using this more.

I am also going to enter this into the 'try something new' challenge at the Scrappy Frog challenge.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday x
