4 x 4 Fun!

More from the Pathfinder paper! The "hits just keep on coming"  LOL!
Hint: want your Washi Tape to have the same back color no matter how many papers it covers? Place it on White Daisy or Colonial White, THEN adhere it to your project.
All CTMH products were used in the making of the 4 x 4 cards.

Tripple or Double stamping!

Have you tried the Triple or Double stamping technique yet? It is great with flowers, flourish and the CTMH Fall Harvest C1504 stamp set. So easy to do!

Double or Triple Layered Stamping
~Using repositional adhesive adhere your light colored cs, as if they were one-all centered out.
~Stamp your images, using all your ink colors. *If you are going to do any Generation stamping be sure to do the first “stamp off” on scrap paper!
~Take your three pieces apart and add your mats. Then adhere all three together as one unit.
