Hey there! Today’s video shares how to use one Simon Hurley create. ink pad and get several shades using the generational stamping technique. This is a great way to get more from your supplies and get perfect results with stamp layering sets!

I love layering stamp sets from Altenew… they have phenomenal designs that look absolutely stunning when stamped. In today’s project, I used the Vintage Flowers stamp set (this was my first Altenew stamp set and I still love it)!
To get several shades from the same ink, simply stamp the image off to the side… you can do this several times to get a really light color. For the solid layer, I stamped off the image twice before stamping on my project to get the lightest color. You can also use the solid images from the scrap paper to create another card to save some time!
I love how this card turned out and for each image, I only used one ink for all the shades! I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Bestest Friends stamp set and Painted Lines background stamp.
I also created an example using the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set and Backsplash stencil. I love how using one ink takes all of the guesswork out of picking the right shades and looks stunning every time!
