I rarely make New Year's resolutions, but this year I decided to focus my resolutions on the "creative" part of my life. One of my resolutions is to try new techniques and projects this year. I have developed a bad habit of seeing techniques I want to try and "pinning" them but never actually trying them. So I'm going through my Pinterest boards and my gallery favorites at Splitcoast Stampers and pushing myself to try new things. Here's to breaking out of my comfort zone in 2013!
This week's Try a New Technique challenge at Splitcoast Stampers gave us the opportunity to try one of the many challenge techniques from 2012, so I chose to try Triple Time Stamping (also called Seamless Tiers) for my card. I have seen so many magnificent cards using this technique, but it involves a bit of measuring and I'm more of an eyeballer than a measurer. Thankfully, many wonderful bloggers are willing to share their recipes and measurements and they've taken all the hard work out of this technique!
Here's my card:
There are many wonderful tutorials online and some of them include videos, so you can certainly find many options for this beautiful technique. I've seen lots of different measurements for the layers and I may try other combinations in the future. You could easily cut the pieces for several cards at once and then construct them as you have time, or make several of the same card assembly-line style. I was truly surprised at how quickly this card was completed.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!
