Triple Stamped Delicate Dahlias

Since we have less than 3 weeks left of Sale-A-Bration, I have decided to use the Delicate Dahlia Stamp Set again this week.  I featured this set the week of August 15, so if you missed those cards, you can check them out using the following links.

Delicate Dahlias is such a pretty stamp set and is so much fun to play with, so I decided to show case it again this week. During Sale-A-Bration you can get the stamp set for FREE with a $100 merchandise order. 

Today’s card uses the Triple Stamping Technique.  This technique has been around for a long time, but it is a great technique to utilize with stamps like those in the Delicate Dahlias set.  The quick and short description of the technique is you first layer 3 different size pieces of cardstock on top of each other and then you randomly stamp whatever you want to cover the layers.  I stamped the large Dahlia in Bumblebee, Flirty Flamingo, and Merry Merlot.  Then I filled in some of the remaining white space with Blackberry Bliss small flowers and Old Olive leaves.  Since my card base and mats were Blackberry Bliss, I used a very light touch of Blackberry Bliss ink with my Blending Brush to tone down the starkness of the remaining white against the bright colors.

Once all stamping is finished, you then separate the pieces and adhere them to their coordinating sized mats.  Now you just reassemble them.  I used dimensionals between each layer as I’m a bit of a dimensional-aholic.  (I’m not sure there is such a word, but I bet you know what I mean).

I added the Heartfelt Sympathy sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and then die cut it with one of the dies from the Seasonal Labels Dies.  If you haven’t checked out those dies, you need to!  At first glance you assume they are Christmas Dies (probably because they are called “Seasonal”), but there are several awesome labels dies in that set.  You can check them out in my Product List below.

On the inside of the card, I had more fun randomly stamping flowers and leaves, and if that wasn’t enough, I continued stamping to cover the flap of my envelop with pretty flowers, too.  You can see a little peak of the envelop flap in both of my pictures.

If you would like a complete tutorial with all cutting directions and steps to create the card you can access one using this link.

A complete Product List is below.  And don’t forget, there are only 17 days left of Sale-A-Bration.  For each $50 you spend, you can earn some great freebies.  For a $100 order you can get this beautiful Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set for free.
