Hi. Today I have a video showing how you can use second generation stamping with “building” stamp sets.
[All supplies are linked in the thumnails at the end of this post.]
Second generation stamping is a great way to get more out of your inks. Although you can do this technique with absolutely any ink, some do work much better than others. My favorite for generation stamping is the Studio Calico’s Color Theory Ink. (You can see an info video on these HERE along with more on generation stamping HERE.) For this card, I stamped the outside petals of each flower with the SC Coral Bay, Sunny Day and Orange County inks. I then stamped the inside circles with the same inks, but first “stamped off” on scrap paper to obtain a second generation. Easy to do!
I used a new stamp set that is part of the Studio Calico Camelot Morgan Add-On Card Kit. There are so many images you can “build” together and I am a fan of these types of stamps. The “thanks” is a fantastically detailed die from Studio Calico (which can be bought separately and is back in stock). For shine, I covered it with Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powder. I also tried out the new-to-me Ranger Enchanted Gold embossing powder for a few of the dots. Love it.
