I’m so glad you stopped by to check out my blog today!  I love making cards and am excited to get to share what I create!   For this card I wanted to make one strip my own designer series paper!  It’s the middle section!   I used the Beautiful Autumn Bundle to create this design.   These stamps are 2-step stamps which means there is a detailed stamp and a solid stamp for each design.  This allows you give the stamped images some dimensions.   You can do this by using two different colors of ink or using the 2nd generation technique.  This is when you ink one image and stamp it then ink up the next image and stamp off on another piece of paper before stamping over your image.  This gives you a lighter color of ink on the first stamped image!  

I hope you enjoy this card!  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

This is a card that I designed for my monthly stamping group so I did a video with detailed step by step instructions for this card and the other 2 cards we did in September.  Click the link below to watch the video!
