Here we go!

Today, I'd like to share all about Generation Stamping. 
While this may be an "old" technique...it's one I still use QUITE often! It always amazes me that something SO simple...can have such a dramatic effect!

Take a look at this card, using the ADORABLE Hawthorn Cardmaking Kit stamp set. 

The Acorn is stamped with ONLY 2 ink colors...and not 3 colors like it may appear. 

I used Saffron ink for the yellow acorn, and Paprika ink for the other two acorns.  I LOVE that our ink pads have multiple shades of the same color "hidden" inside. 

So how do we do this Generation Stamping technique???

The HARDEST part when doing this technique IS to REMEMBER to NOT RE-INK your stamp image!!

It seems easy, but that's usually how I "mess up" when I use this technique.
Another thing to note.....(see the photo below) 

If you haven't done any Generation Stamping in a while....I hope you'll give it a try!  

Here's a look at the supplies I used to create this simple card. 

Make sure to contact your CTMH consultant to learn how you can get these BEAUTIFUL fall goodies!  This stamp set and paper are going away on Oct 31, 2019 (or while supplies last) 

I hope you enjoyed this card & technique, and were INSPIRED today!! :) 

Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Michelle's Blog to see her beautiful creation!
