Technique Tuesday - Generation Stamping

Here is a 6 x 6 page from the swap I participated in created by Marlene Lund, CTMH Independent Consultant, to show the generation stamping technique. It is easy and a great way to use just one color for multiply shades.

Generation Stamping
  • Ink up stamp, making sure to get full, even coverage. Stamp onto paper. This is 1st generation.
  • Without re-inking, stamping image again for 2nd generation.
  • Repeat without re-inking for 3rd generation.

Below is a card where I took this same stamp set and made a birthday card using generation stamping. I used Hydrangea ink instead of Holiday Red.
Other materials used are all CTMH:
  • Birthday Bash stamp set
  • For Every Occasion stamp set (2007 April stamp of the month)
  • White Daisy cardstock
  • Clover Meadow cardstock
  • Topiary brads
  • Star Spangled Blue ink
Your turn to try this! Have fun!

Good reminder of a great technique. As a bonus the hues will always match!
