This picture is  a generational stamping technique described below. I just finished the card below and my Lilly arrived so I did some generational stamping on some 49th and Market paper. Loved how it turned out so had to show it off.

For Always stay awesome this is how to  do this.

This lesson is about generational layering, taught by Nicole Picadura. Generational stamping is using one ink pad and getting multiple shades to get dimension on your card. The stamp set I used is Altenew Bellflower with Memento Tuxedo Black.

I used Michael’s #110 card stock, my card base is 5 1/4″ x 4″ and the topper is 5″ x 3 3/4″

Before starting to layer onto your card  practice layering your stamps according to the instructions that come with the flower onto scrap paper. This gives a more realistic and tidy look to your flowers.

To start we need a piece of scrap paper, old printer paper is just fine. I used the B stamps starting with B1, stamping it on the black ink, then stamping it on the scrap paper 3 times, and then onto the card base.  I covered the card with the stamps, using the same steps. Next I used B2 and inked it up and stamped on the scrap paper twice then onto the bottom layer. Next was B3 and again inking the stamp and stamping onto the scrap paper once then onto the image. At this point you can see the detail, and our last stamp B4 was inked then put onto the stamp image.

B5 and B6 are attached to the bottom of the flower, using 3rd and 1st generational stamping. I did put one bud on my card because it needed a space to be used up.

On a separate Cardstock I used the Misty Morning ink sets and stamped the same stamp set using Dew Drops, Teal Cove, Aqualicious, then Galactic Stream. For the leaves, Sweet Leaf and Just Green. I then placed it over one of the flowers,  raising it with foam tape The sentiment is from Delicate Flower Bed, always Stay AWESOME.

To finish off the card I took some dot stamps from another set and used Sweet Leaf and placed them around some flowers for added depth and my bling from HAI mixed clear droplets.
