Hi, everyone and isn't life grand!

Hi everyone out there in blog land.

I would like to introduce myself to you all, as this is my first post here at The Bugbytes.  My name is Karon and I'm lucky enough to be a SAHM.  I have only been blogging since the middle of May, but it has really given me something else to focus on, other than just family and house work and stuff.  My blog is Karon's Krafty Korner and if you fancy stopping by any time please do.

I am so enjoying card making and occasionally having a creative moment:-)

Pam emailed me back in September and asked me if I would like to be a regular guest designer on her blog here, along with all the other fabulous members and as I am here today, you now know I said yes!

It is such a wonderful feeling to be approached in this way and I love to be able to share my simple creations with so many wonderful people.  I am to be guest designer on the first Wednesday of every month.

Today, I would like to share with you a card I made using a new technique (to me) called triple stamping.  I think you can probably stamp as many times as you want - it all depends how many layers you would like.  I feel this card could be used for an anniversary/birthday, maybe even valentines.

Anyway, I stamped my image three times.  The stamp is from a set called Reason to Smile and its made by Stampin' Up.  I won the set as blog candy back at the end of August from Pam at Paper Diva.

Just to be different I didn't cut mine into squares/rectangles I decided to cut mine on the angle for the layers.  No particular reason, just because I could LOL.

The card base is one of my 8" by 3" pre-folded card stock, bought in the UK many moons ago:-)

The first two layers are papers from the Recollections pack called Timeless.  I really do love this set of papers.  These layers were cut at 7.75" by 2.75" and then 7" by 2" as I wanted the first layer to show, I then inked all the edges.

I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink on the flower and sentiment layers and inked the edges on these too.

The red ribbon/trim is from my stash and I thought it worked well on this card.

Thanks Pam, for inviting me along and I hope to get to know everyone over the coming months.

Happy crafting.
