Technique Review: Double-Time Stamping

Once upon a time in 2023 - almost exactly one year ago - I wrote a blog post about this cool technique called Double-Time Stamping. The technique entails lightly adhering two different sized piece of Basic White cardstock together, stamping on them both, then taking them apart to add a colored cardstock layer in between. Here's the card I made:

You can read the instructions on my original technique card from years ago below, then check out the sizes for the card above and see the other cards I made in the original blog post by clicking here.

I followed up that blog post with another about how you can do the same type of technique with Designer Series Paper. Check it out: It's cool that a technique so simple can make such a sweet card:

So this year, as I was contemplating a simple technique-y card to make using the Watercolor Melon stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure, I naturally came back to Double-Time Stamping. Quick Easy. Duplicatable. Exactly what I was looking to do, and with similar colors to the original from 2023. This time my colors are Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, and Black. The PERFECT colors for watermelon!

This card features just stamps, ink, and paper, and getting down to the basics every once in awhile reminds me of simpler days and that sometimes that's all you need. Paper sizes for this particular Double-Time Stamping design is as follows.

Poppy Parade cardstock:

-5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored in half at 4 1/4"

-2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Basic White cardstock:

-5 1/4" x 4"

-2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

Have you seen the adorable stamp set I used for this card? Watercolor Melon can be found in the Sale-a-bration brochure, and you can choose it free with a $50 order, if you'd like. But I have another option for you, if you'd like to take advantage. In March I will be holding a Watercolor Melon class. We will create 4 cards for the class, and you have three options for taking it.

Option One: Materials for 4 cards, PLUS the Watercolor Melon Sale-a-bration stamp set (yours to keep!). Cost: $22, plus $8 for shipping

Option Two: Materials for 4 cards. Cost: $12, plus $4 for shipping

Happy Double-Timing!
