Mr. & Mrs.

...a fun one layer card using three weeny little stamps.

I think I was unconsciously inspired by THIS pin and THIS pin - I really love ombre, but I just have a hard time utilizing it without feeling it doesn't look very unique.

I don't know if this card makes me feel better about being unique, but I threw that caution to the wind, because this was just so fun to make. This card is for the Simon Says Stamp Spots and Dots challenge, and the Hero Arts One-Layer card challenge - I used two wee sentiments from one of my all time Hero Arts favorites, Miss You So Much, and then the ampersand from the Love This stamps.

I used the Studio Calico Color Theory inks - perfect for this generation stamping technique! In case you're new to generation stamping, this is the basic lowdown;

  • Stamp sentiment/image once, either on your card or off (depending on what look you're going for - I stamped on the card for today). Then stamp again on the cardstock - the second impression will be lighter, and depending on what ink you're using, you could keep stamping until there ain't no juice left on the stamp. 

Anyways, enjoy your weekend and God bless!

Cardstock: Canson
Stamps: Hero Arts "Miss You So Much" and "Love This"
Ink: Studio Calico
Other: sequins, enamel dots and gem
