Video: Generation Stamping + Notecard Set

Hi there! Today’s video shares generation stamping… which I used to create a set of notecards. I also show how to create a notecard gift box…

[Supplies are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post.]

I honestly don’t think I have ever had cards come together as quickly as these did. Wow. Yay for generation stamping! Studio Calico Color Theory Inks happen to work *really* well for generation stamping. (I haven’t had nearly this much success with any other ink for this technique. And good news! I have a discount code for the SC inks below.) Stamp once and get a dark image. Stamp again – without cleaning – and get a medium-shade image. Stamp a third time and get a light image. Bam! Only one ink needed… but it looks like three.

I used butterflies and greetings from the Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterfly stamp set. I liked the silver stamping that I did last week so much that I did it again for the sentiment– a combo of Hero Arts silver ink and Perfect Pearls pigment powder.

I used a variety of Studio Calico inks to make a set of cards…

I then created some matching envelopes and put them in a glitter paper box I made with my We R Memory Keepers Punch Board.

Gotta love a gift that comes together quickly!
