About a month ago, the Technique Challenge on SCS was Triple Time Stamping, in which the cards had three layers of stamped images layered on top of each other -- with the images lined up on all three layers.  I thought I would try a similar technique for my card today, except using patterned paper instead of stamped images.


As you can see the layers are matted with black cardstock, but the haunted house lines up on all three layers.  I just added the cute little ghost at the top.  Pretty easy, wouldn't you say?

My gift card holder for today's set, Going Batty, is a pop-up card inside.


Here's the pop-up part:

Well I have to say I wasn't around when they did this technique but I love it! The ghost is perfect and I love the bubble sentiment. As for your last card look at the cute little witch shoe. So cute and wow a pop up gift card holder is great ideal. TFS AJ-

Janine said...

Lovely projects gain Lois. Must check out how to do that gift card pop-up - so cool!

Vicky Gould said...

Love both your cards; that layered look looks great and the pop up is outstanding. You rocked it again, GF!!

Benzi said...

Your pop up card is really a fun one and you did a great job lining up the papers on your first card. Wonderful work, as always.

Sarah Biswabic said...

I love how the triple layered card turned out with the paper instead of stamping! Your gift card holder is just to cute!

Jane said...

I absolutely love both of your cards Lois. I love the layers on the first and what a great idea!
I love that popup gift card. Maybe this could be a tutorial????

Pat Garvin said...

Love the Haunted House.

Pam said...

I love both of them...pretty cool that you had enough of that dp to get it to work and the second card is especially cute with the witches' shoe.

I love the triple stamping tq and have used it many times, but never thought to try it with dp. Great card. I love the witch one too. Your pop-up one is gorgeous, but too much work for me. LOL

Cute cards, I love the first one with the spooky houses to go with the ghost and that is a great technique.

The second one with the card holder is so creative.

Ravengirl said...

Great cards! I love the pop up gift card holder. I'll have to look around for a tutorial on that one!

Kathy Bradley said...

Lois,
Your first card is so adorable and the matting of the haunted house looks awesome. Your second pop up gift card holder is so very cute! As always, wonderful cards!

Cathy Clouston said...

I love your cards! The patterned paper on your first card is perfect! :)

Not sure if the comment I just typed was taken because I had to log in and lost track of if it took the comment or not. All wonderful creations. Like the Triple Time Stamping, the witch charm & you cannot go wrong with a Best Buy gift card (one of my Daughter's fav stores).

Wonderful work! Love your layers and how you did it with designer paper rather than stamping. Great pop-up card, too.
