What's better than using Close to my Heart's amazing Stamp of the Month?  Using it multiple times to create a great-looking card!

This week's Tip is actually a Technique: Motion Stamping.  And it really is as easy as 1-2-3.

Choose your stamp.  I used the Hot Air Balloon from the "My Sunshine" April Stamp of the Month.  Ink it up really well -- I used Outdoor Denim.  Stamp it once.

Do NOT re-ink.  Stamp again, slightly off-setting the image from the original.  This is called Second Generation stamping.

Do NOT re-ink.  Stamp a third time, again, slightly off-set from the second image.  Keep repeating until you have created the motion you like, or until you run out of ink on your stamp.

Here are 2 cards, using this technique and the balloon from "My Sunshine".
Believe in Yourself -- Sky cardstock and Chantilly B&T, Outdoor Denim and Sunset ink, clear sparkles.
Enjoy - Sky cardstock and Clementine B&T, Sunset and Saddle ink, Blue buttons.

Feeling like your project can use some motion?  Go ahead and try this technique for yourself.
