Second Generation Stamping, or Stamping-off is really easy…just stamp multiple times before re-inking your stamp.  It’s a great way to stretch your ink pads and get more mileage out of this great tool.

Pretty easy right?

Don’t have circle stamps (you might want to get some!  ;)  or, try hearts, stars or flowers.

The cardstock is cut at:

  • 11 x 4-1/4
  • 4-1/8 x 5-3/8
  • 4 x 5-1/4

 Try different colors, too!

Don’t want to watercolor the sentiment?  Try swiping your ink pad across white cardstock to color the paper.  I did that on the cards below.  The purple one was swiped with two different ink colors for a really cool multi-colored look.

You can also try cutting your top layer down about another 3/4″  (3-1/2 x 4-3/4) and using Embossing Paste, Glitter and a Stencil to create a beautiful background.  See how to do that in this video on Embossing Paste and Glitter.

Grandma and Eva

We got to stamp with grandma a couple weeks ago.  She had so much fun, she came back today so her and Eva could make more cards together.  They were so adorable!  There’s a quick video on my Instagram account here – my MIL is all smiles…makes me happy!
