Original card for class
Alternate versions, using different stamp sets
I am having fun with the Triple Layer Stamping.  It is really easy to do, once you have the dimensions for your layers.  The top card is the original card I had prepared for my October stamp class.  I had left over materials, so once again I created three different cards, all with the same cut materials. 
The dimemsions I used are: 
Card base:  8 1/2" x 5 1/2" - (this will also be your 1st dark layer)
Additional dark layers:  4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and 3 1/2" x 2 1/4"
Lighter Layers - (the layers you stamp your images onto)  5 1/4" x 4", 4 1/4" x 3", 3 1/4" x 2"
Before you start stamping, take and center your three lighter layers together.  I used a removable adhesive to keep them together.  Now, stamp your images onto all three layers.
Remove your adhesive from these layers, and place them onto the coordinating darker layer.  Place all of your layers together onto your card base making sure to line up your stamped images.  Before I placed my two smaller layers onto my last larger layer, I tied on my ribbon.
Have fun experimenting with this technique.  It is really fun to see what you come up with once all of the layers are put together.
