Smile Triple time paper technique?

Recently I saw on the internet where someone made cards using what looked like the triple time stamp technique. However they used printed paper instead and it was a good way to use up printed paper we all have excess of in our stashes. Does anyone know this technique and where I can find it? I'm using the directions for the triple time stamping but using the paper instead of stamping. Hoping it will work ok. Any help will be appreciated. Sherry

I haven't done it myself with DSP but here is a beautiful example that I found in my favorites.

I have done this myself this past summer. I had one sheet of paper i liked, so i printed off two more copies on my printer. It was painstaking but i was very careful and made sure i was cutting in the right place, because i did not want to use up all that extra ink to print out another page. Of course if you already had several pieces of the same paper this would not be an issue, It turned out really nice and i hope to try it again.

I like this idea!!! There has to be an easy way to do it!!! But of course, I am not that brilliant to figure out what the easy way is.

Agreed. I think I need to play around with nested dies to see how it could work...I am not good enough with a trimmer or craft knife to make layers that would match up correctly.

I think I have an idea. Take a 4 by 5 1/4 piece of DSP and use 3 nesties or framelits. Put them all inside of each other on top of the DSP. Hard to explain what I mean but like making just a frame. Then mat each of them onto CS that is slightly bigger than the frame. I will give it a try.

I know a lot of us with Operation Write Home saw this blog post that talked about using DSP with this technique. Hope this helps you. I know I plan to make a bunch of cards this way.

I found this tutorial at darlenedesign.com that uses a large background stamp for triple time stamping -
it seems that printed paper could be used also. I really liked the card and her tutorial.

This makes sense, and I think I will try it tonight! I have so many sheets of DSP that I love but haven't really "worked" on my cards, so this would be the perfect way to showcase beautiful DSP!

Oh wait, I just realized I don't have any rectangle nesties...so I guess I just enabled myself to buy some!! I still think I'll try this technique the "hard" way to fully convince myself I need to buy new nesties!!

So I don't really have rectangle nesties so I used scalloped rectangles instead. I should have made one less layer too. I used 3 frames and should have used just 2. I posted my experiment in my gallery but it isn't really a good card. I didn't want to use any nice DSP unitl I saw what it looked like. You can check it out if you want to but wait several minutes because it will need to get approved before it posts.

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks for everyone's help in finding the technique. I'm working on a set of cards now to use up my paper. It was the OWH digital technique that I saw. But I do have rectangular nesties and will try that also. You are all the best!

I made a card recently with this technique (using patterned paper instead of stamping) and I actually just eyeballed it. I just started with the bottom layer first, then just made the next layer a half inch smaller, and then put my image panel in the middle. It turned out great (sorry, don't have a picture) though probably not perfect. But it seems like it was pretty easy to come up with the layout myself. It's choosing papers that go together that I have trouble with.

Here is a YouTube video that shows an easy way to do it. I think even I might be able to do this!!

THANKS! I just learned the triple layer in 2012 and am using it frequently....not a big fan of the bulk/weight so this is a wonderful idea....plus I can use up my big stash of pretty paper, so I can buy more pretty paper. You ladies are such enablers

Default No nesties?? No problem!!

Here's the way I do it with designer paper. I take two identical sheets and match up the design at one of the corners. You don't even need full sheets as long as one corner matches up perfectly. I cut 4" x 5" rectangles with the paper together using my paper cutter. I trim off " each side of one of the rectangles to create the middle piece (3" x 4"). Then I flip over the non-trimmed rectangle and measure in 1" from each side, "connect the dots" with a pencil and end up with a 2" x 3" rectangle drawn on the back side. I carefully cut out the small rectangle to create the top piece. You end up with a hole in the largest rectangle that ends up getting covered by the coordinating cardstock. This is such a fun card and I say "thanks" to whomever came up with the original design!!

Great links to show various ways to achieve the same look. Now I'm inspired to make sets of cards for our local RMH. Thanks for inspiring, ladies.
