Theme – Masking
Hello Crafty Friends! I am thrilled to be here for this hop! I love masking, but I’ll be honest, I don’t do it as often as I would like. Now that we have the Masking Paper, it will make it a lot easier to do.
There are some really great stamp sets that work so good with the masking technique, and today I used Ranunculus Romance. I haven’t used this set yet and thought it would be perfect because of that script stamp. I love how the script stamp looks on it’s own, but I wanted to have it as a background for the flowers. Enter my masking paper!
First I used my Stampin’ Write markers to color the flower stamp and stamped the image on the Basic White card stock.
Next, I die cut the flower image from the Ranunculus die set out of the masking paper.
I set the die cut masking paper over the flower image on my card stock and inked up the script stamp with my Sahara Sand Stampin’ Pad.
I stamped the image three times, covering the entire flower and removed the masking paper. Remember, the masking paper is thin, but if you don’t give a little extra push on your stamp, you might get shadows around the edges of your masked image, as the paper does raise the stamp up a little bit. Check the edges of your stamp before pressing, though. You don’t want a halo around your image.
Next, I cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Calypso Coral card stock and stamped the Drybrush background image in Sahara Sand. Then, I added it to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.
Now, I took some white twine and used my Garden Green marker to color it, then wrapped it around the Basic White image.
For bling, I added some Brass Butterflies. Then, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals™ to stick the basic White Card stock on the Calypso Coral card stock.
I got the sentiment I liked from the set and stamped that on the inside of my card, and just like that, I had a masterpiece. haha
I made this card in about 20 minutes, thanks to the wonderful conversation I was having with my dearest friend, Linda Moore. We have a weekly phone call date where we discuss our business and our lives. It’s a time I look forward to from the second we get off the phone until the next Wednesday. Never underestimate the value of a true friend. They can really bring so much to your life at a time when you need it most.
PS: If you don’t have a friend you can just chat with, send me a message. I would love to be a shoulder to lean on.
Until next time,
Stay crafty, Friends!
