Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Third Time's the Charm and DTS Technique

Today, Melanie Muenchinger shows you a direct to stamp technique on her repeating butterflies from the Triple Play Frame set, in keeping with her “Third Time’s the Charm” challenge for our Mix it Up Monday, this week on StampTV!  The frame takes the guesswork out of a layout (and is perfect for this “threepeating” design), and she also shares how special small details like the piercing make the finished card. We hope you’ll participate with our StampTV challenges, they get you playing with different materials and ideas, which is always great for your skills and mojo! (Oh, and winning a prize isn’t bad either!)

Beautiful cards -- I am so glad I have the Triple Play stamp set, I just used it to make 4 birthday cards this past weekend, I would not have thought to put the same image in all three circles,  Looks great!  Will definitely try it next.

I love them both, but I'm thinking I'll turn the card sideways and stamp the butterflies up, and use one big greeting at the bottom.  Love the colored butterflies.

Great Job, Melanie

I love both of these cards. You are doing an awesome job.

Both cards are very colourful and pretty indeed, I like how you have used the different inks to colour up the butterflies, I will have to remember and try out this technique myself :).  I like the sentiments stamped on the right side, not sure why though, maybe because I am right handed :p.  At first glance I thought you had die cut the butterflies until I watched the video in full, the shadowing really does make them pop.

Love both cards. But really like the shadowing. I thought you had popped the butterflies. Great idea!

Love the card. Good job and great idea.

What a great idea...I like the card with the sentiments on left.  Thanks.

I like them equally. This is such a pretty idea.
