Triple time stampin' - not quite, but almost?

hi Everyone

I have my lovely work colleague Sandie to thank for the inspiration for this card.
Thanks so much, Sandie. x

Triple time stamp? Well you might well ask.!

its certainly in 3 pieces, but instead of the recognised technique of stamping the image over a stack of 3 pieces of card then matting each of the layers,  size up on the card base, I stamped the images on one sheet and cut that into 3 pieces and just stuck those onto my card base  - the lazy alternative?.

Come and take a look.
I used the lovely Summer Silhouettes stamp set - practically used every stamp in the set I think, apart from the smallest one. I started  with one column of leaves, first stamped off, then fully inked, and then just went round the card having a great time filling in the gaps with the other stamps...  and this time I even decorated the inside to match.!

I  rounded the 4 corners before cutting the stamped image apart, finishing them by sponging the edges of each of the resulting cut panels.

The sentiment  is from the A word for You stamp set - just love this one and I do  use it such a lot. Again I sponged its edges and popped it up on Stampin up dimensionals after having been at the super snips perfecting my fussy cutting skills..( my lovely upline Vicky would be proud!)

To balance the card I opted for 3 little rhinestones - as thought it needed something up there in that top left hand corner. What do you think?

Perhaps this is  'half triple time stamping' - Am chuckling here as it almost sounds like that tap dance step which gave me great grief when I was trying to learn it!
