Hey friends! It’s Jess and I’m back with another quick and easy card using second generation stamping. This is such a great technique to have handy when you want to spruce a card up a bit. I’ve got a video tutorial for you or you can read below for all the details. Let’s get started!

I grabbed a piece of white cardstock and trimmed it down to 3.75×9.25. I’m making a slim line card today, so I wanted to be sure it would fit inside a #10 sized envelope. I grabbed the gorgeous ‘Just a Phase’ stamp set from the January 2020 box and some black ink. Using an acrylic block, I stamped out my image four times, overlapping the edge each time to create a seamless pattern.

Once my dark black stamping was completed, I grabbed a piece of scrap paper. I inked up my stamp with the same black ink, but stamped it first onto my scrap paper before stamping it on my card front. This gives a lighter stamped impression and gives the appearance of depth. I love it! I repeated this all the way across my card panel.

I cut a strip of black cardstock to match the width of my card panel and grabbed one of the sentiments from ‘Aim High.’ I treated my cardstock with anti-static powder and used clear embossing ink to stamp my sentiment. I poured on white embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool.

I went ahead and mounted the sentiment strip to my card panel and added a few sequins to finish things off. I mounted the panel on some foam tape and attached it to a white card base. That finished off the card!

I hope you love today’s project using quick and easy card using second generation stamping. If you’re inspired to create something, be sure to tag us on social media so we can see what you’re up to ( @acarddayswork @thehedgehoghollow )!

Hugs and love,
