Triple Blossom Birthday

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I had a busy day today but now that it is the end of the day I am not sure what I did besides card making (lol).
I did make a delicious dinner. I experimented with some of our garden tomatoes, basil and oregano. Added onion and olive oil and made a pasta sauce. Then to that I added some Kraft cooking creme in savory garlic. tossed it with some whole grain pasta and wha-la dinner was ready.

My hubby really enjoyed it as did I. I like it when my experiments turn out a nice meal.

I have so much basil so I am looking for ways to use it besides making pesto. I made some pesto last week and made a pizza- that was really good as well.

Well lets get onto my card for today. This one I made for the technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I don't often do techniques but I am so glad I did this one.  It is called triple stamping. You can get more info here and a video here.

In a nutshell, cut 3 layers of cardstock that are graduated sizes. Line them up, the smallest on top in the middle and work down. Choose a stamp that will cover over all three layers or use several stamps. Stamp over all the layers and then adhere the matting to the layers and adhere the layers together.

I used a  cherry blossom image  from the Marks Finest Papers set - asian delights.

I stamped in melon mambo and used an old olive marker to get some green leaves.

My happy birthday sentiment is from the North American Woods set - also from Marks Finest Papers.

To complete my card I added some trim and a bow. This is really a great technique that produces a beautiful card.  Give it a try.

It's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time......God bless.
