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.
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!
