Technique Thursday – Second generation stamping and Pop up Sentiment

HELLO THERE!!  Today I headed over to Splitcoaststampers and saw that their technique challenge was to “pop up” part of the sentiment. You can find that {HERE}. I also wanted to throw in 2 different techniques called Second Generation Stamping AND masking!

First here’s a photo with the entire stamp set from Courage, our new CTMH stamp set that is being offered for the month of June and July. The stamp set is $9.95. You can find the stamp set through my shopping link {HERE} You can find more details about our “Let’s Get Patriotic” promotion {HERE}. Please take a note that two of the images that I am using is actually different than what is being featured on the card.  That’s where “masking” comes in..


Now; as you know the “courage” is actually ONE image with the solider. I used post it notepad and put it down to cover up the courage so the ink wouldn’t be on the image.  That’s masking technique. 


Now here’s the second generation stamping. First image is on the left using Archival black inkpad.  Line up your image to where you want it then stamp it. Then, go RIGHT without cleaning your stamp set and line it up. Stamp it!  There you have your second generation stamping! 


Now I chose to keep my card simple not to take anything away from the meaning of the card.   For the sentiment. I used black marker to just color the “thank you” then I punched it out. Then I cleaned it off and colored the rest of the sentiment and used a different puncher. I wanted to “pop up” just the “thank you” to emphasize the meaning of it. The plaid and red patterned paper are from an OLD kit; Blue Ribbons. It is no longer available. I only had a couple of sheets left.  It is perfect for this.
