Enjoy Your Special Day

Thursday, April 12, 2012



I know the generational stamping technique is not a new one, but I had never really explored it in my card making.  I loved the way the trio of ink colors looked using this technique on this card.  I had used 3 neutral browns/tans.  I wanted to try the same technique, but this time with more vibrant colors.  I used Canyon Clay, Orange Zest, and Summer Sunrise. 


Thanks for stopping by today.
See you later!

  8. Okay, this card is now added to the list of Things That Make Me Go: "Wow!" Such a clever use of not just generational stamping, Kara, but incorporating the Mat Stack #3 die cut *with the background* like you did--and that color combo is awesome! :-)
