This gate card was a Stamp Night project from February and a little out of my comfort zone with all the bright colors.  My ladies loved it though…some of them are all about the Brights!  Lots of dimensionals on this one to layer everything for the telescoping effect.

  • Starburst Sayings


  • Daffodil Delight

When you do the Telescoping Technique with a word stamp, it helps if you punch your circle out of scrap card stock first and center the scrap circle on top of your stamped image to trace where to punch.  Then, just punch carefully to punch inside the pen marks.  If your image has a center to aim for like the one in the Technique Journal below, there’s no need to trace first.

Have fun doing this technique with different shapes.  It doesn’t have to be just scallops & circles…try some Framelit shapes too!

Happy Stampin’
