Stampendous - Stack Art - Triptych

Welcome to day 4 of Stampendous Stack Art blog challenge inspiration week
If you're just joining, don't miss the great inspiration from Monday's Post, Tuesday's Post and Wednesday's Post. Stampendous is giving away three Stack Art prize packages this week. Each package will contain one Stack Art Kraftboard Kit, one Stack Art Stamp Set and one Stack art Elements Kit. Your comments on the designer's blogs are very much appreciated and your entry into the drawing.

Stampendous introduced Stack Art in January 2014. It's a terrific product for beginning crafters through advanced mixed media artists. They are great for making tags, shrines, books, art dolls, jewelry etc. They are ATC size and very easy to use and work with.

Trading ATC's ( Artist Trading Cards) are very popular in Germany. Every crafting forum is hosting an ATC challenge. It can be a bit tricky to work with this small size but the Stack Art Kraftboard makes it very easy to start even more with the corresponding Stack Art Stamp Sets and Element Kits.

Today i want to share a Stack Art ATC - Triptych with you and how you can use your own stamps with it. You get 4 pieces of Kraftboard with each Kit and i've already used 3 of them. The last one of my kit i'll show you tomorrow.
To create the triptych i've used the biggest leftover template which has atc size

Here's the construction

I'm using medium weight cardboard and i'm tracing the contour 6 times with a pencil. Cut out and glued two pieces together. You have three sturdy cardboard pieces now

Next i've created a background with Distress Inks *vintage photo* and *walnut stain*. I used two giant manila tags "12 size

I stamped on top with Distress Ink *walnut stain* and used the text stamps from the Stampendous Stack Art *Royal Heart* Stamp Set.

Next i've used the template again to cut 6 front and back pieces and glued them to the cardboard pieces.

Between the cardboard pieces, i've adhered two small hinges you'll see on the next picture. Normaly i would hide the hinges under the background paper, but i've glued them on top to show you the construction

For the London theme i've used a Tim Holtz stamp set, Personal Impressions and Docrafts. I stamped with StazOn red the London script to the background. I stamped with Archival black on Kraft Cardstock for the elements ( enjoyed fuzzy cutting) and used a red felt pen. I also applied a crown from the Stampendous Stack Art Kraftboard Kit.

For the Paris theme i've used the Tim Holtz stamp set again, Stampin' Up! and one from Rayher. I stamped some script on the background again with StazOn red and the elements are stamped on Kraft Cardstock with Archival black. Again some fuzzy cutting and embellished with Stickles *Diamond*

Hope to see you tomorrow for the final day again

Hello Elly,
The triptycs are fabulous, the pop of Red on the London theme is very attractive to the eye. Red, in particular is virtually unignorable; commanding attention.
Great work.

What a great project, Elly!! Love all the details and textures! WE love to use the punched out frames, too! It's so fun to trace them on clay or chipboard to make even more fun from the Stack Art kits! Great idea!!

Greta hat gesagt…

You are so creative! Thank you for the instructions--what great projects! So fun to see projects other than cards since I'm always at a loss of how to start & go back to cards. Wonderful use of the variety of images & I love the backgrounds you created with the script stamps!
