The Hedgehog Hollow | Easy Second Generation Stamping

Hey friends!

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. 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 )!
