Make it Simple Monday

 Happy New Year πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ’– I hope you all had a great festive season. I  was fortunate enough  to spend it with family and friends. Here in the UK we have the last bank holiday of the festive season,  or should that be the first one of the year πŸ€” Either way it's  a great day to just chill and plan what I'm  going to treat my self to from the January to June mini catalogue from Stampin' Up! that goes live tomorrow 😁 One of the advantages to being a demo is that we get to pre order products from upcoming catalogues. For my preorder I purchased a set that called out to me right from the get go... Rainbow of Happiness.  

If you've been here before, and I do hope you have πŸ˜‰, then you'll know I love rainbows 🌈 and this stamp set is just amazing 😁...

... but enough of what's to come lets get onto what I have to share with you today. As it's a Monday it's got to be  #makeitsimplemonday inspiration.  

All I have used for all 4 of my cards today is 2 colours of ink, basic white thick cardstock and the Rainbow Happiness stamps.

The cards are all variations of the same layout.  Each one is subtley different.  The coloured inks I've used are both bold shades

The bright blue is called pacific point and the bold yellow daffodil delight. I chose these colours as they can be used to create tonal or generational stamping.

Generational stamping is where you ink the stamp once stamp it then reactivate the ink on the stamp bu gently huffing over it. Stamp again. This becomes the second generation image. Repeat the huffing then stamp again for a third generation image. This process works with lots of colours and is a great way to make the most of your stash!

I made the portrait orientation cards first but couldn't stop so made some landscape too!!
