Stamp Simply Challenge #35 – Trio of Panels

Keyword ssnotime35-There is no time limit. You can play this challenge and upload yourproject at Splitcoastand/or your Blog, anytime at all! You (and that means anyone and everyone, blogger or not!)can play as many times as you like!!! The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!! Please link back here.

The challenge this week is to create a trio of panels for your card. Your panels can be any size or shape, and you may put them on your card in any configuration at all — just get 3 panels on your card — that’s it!!! I love making pieces and then quickly putting them all together to form a card — and I love working in 3’s — so this challenge combines them both!!! Just have fun and, as always, try to keep it simple!!

Here are some samples:

Check out Julie Koerberssample here.

Check out Dee Jacksons sample here.

Check out Tammy Hershbergers sample here.

Check out Jennifer Bucks sample here.

Check out Janine Orchards sample here.

Check out Becky Oehlers Sample here.

What a fabulous Stamp Simply Team!!! Thank you girls!!! Much appreciated!!!

And here is my sample:


This card is 5.5″ square and I use 6″ envelopes, so even though the top sentiment circle extends beyond the top of my card, it still fits in the envelope. My 3 white panels are cut 1.5 x 4.25″, and narrowly matted. My ties, from Menswear by Flourishes, are paper pieced onto Boxer paper by Basic Grey. That is the greatest paper for guys — just love it!!! The sheets look exactly like material for either cotton boxer shorts or silk ties — LOL!!! I decided to go with the silk ties for today!!!! The brads for tie tacks are SU.

The Happy 60th Birthday was easily done using the JustRite D.I.Y Monogram Stamper (C-45). I used the Small Letters for the perimeter Happy Birthday and for the *th* on 60th, and I used the Medium/Large Numbers for the 60. After stamping it on white paper, it was then cut and embossed using my Circle Nestabilitiesand then matted. The sentiment could justas easily have said Happy Father’s Day on the perimeter with a larger DAD in the center — how fun!!!

  • Stamps: Menswear by Flourishes; JustRite DIY Monogram Stamper (C-45), Small Letters, Medium/Large Numbers.
  • Paper: White, Black, Boxer 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey.
  • Ink: Versa Fine Onyx Black
  • Accessories: Circle Nestabilities by Spellbinders, Ticket Corner Punch (SU), Brads (SU).

    Sharon, this is so cool. Fun paper and fun paper pieced ties. The more I see of the monogram stamper, the more I think I want it. Here’s mine:

  6. Lois (clownmom) says:

    This is a fun technique, Sharon. I love your card; those ties really look good on the long panels, and it seems as if you’re having lots of fun with the monogrammer. All the samples for today are great. Here’s my card, combined with Wednesday’s grid technique from SCS —

  10. Karen Witter says:

    Sharon – another awesome card on your part. I love it! I have a card in my gallery that I love and it would be perfect for this challenge. Is there any way I could use it for the challenge, and if so, how do I go about that. I could upload it again but will that put it in my gallery twice? Thanks for sharing another very creative idea.

    Now, how could you possibly know that I am going to my uncle’s 60th birthday bash tomorrow!?! Of course I don’t have that stamp and he’s a farmer so I don’t think he’s worn a tie since his wedding but I love the design – I am sure I can make it work with fish or something! Thanks for the inspiration!

  59. dana says:

    I feel so stupid. I went to SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS and uploaded my tri panel card and have no idea where it went!

    I started out by going to your tri panel contest, but when I clicked on UPLOAD at the top, it took me somewhere else.


  60. dana says:

    I am out of breath trying to figure out how to do all of this. I’m sure that your instructions are perfectly done, but for a pea-brain like me, it wasn’t enough.

    I had to have SueB take my hand and walk me to this point.

    I also went to SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS and uplinked my card, but it went to a site totally different from the one I intended.

    What! Don’t these sites read my mind??

    Anyway, thanks to SueB, my card is at least visible at the above link.

    The papers on my card were all hand made by me so I can’t give any cudos to any company. The stamp is QUEEN ANN’S LACE from A1Stamps and was done with VersaMark and embossed white.

    The stamp is

    Thank you SO much for doing the work for me where uploading my card (to the correct place) is concerned.

    I promise you that you will get to do it again, and again, for me. duhhhhhhh

    My card is the absolutely worst one of the bunch but at least it’s THERE!
