So yesterday (Saturday 1st September) I was involved in a special day for Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrators in Scotland. I pushed myself right out of my comfort zone and did a technique demonstration for them all! I was super nervous beforehand but I’m sure they will have enjoyed it and they are all lovely so will embrace my mistakes and gibbering. 🙂 I demonstrated 3 cards and then the ladies all had a go at masking. I made use of all the leaf stamps in the ‘Rooted in Nature’ set.
- For this card you need a card base from thick Very Vanilla. I cut an A4 sheet longways at 10.5cm and fold it in half for a tent fold card.
- Cut a panel from thin Very Vanilla 10.1cm x 14.4cm
- Die cut or punch a mask from a post it note and place where you want it on the panel.
- Stamp all over the panel overlapping the mask firmly as much as possible.
- Carefully remove the mask and stamp your sentiment in the space.
- Pull the panel edges carefully through the ink pad taking care not to damage the ink pad.
- Stick the panel to you card base – Voila
- Cut a card base from thick Very Vanilla. I cut an A4 sheet longways at 10.5cm and fold it in half for a tent fold card
- Cut a panel from Blackberry Bliss 10.1cm x 14.4cm and a panel from thin very vanilla 9.7cm x 14cm.
- For the second card use a piece of thin copier paper to make a mask.
- Secure the mask using post it notes or tape – great job for retired washi tape!
- Stamp firmly inside the circle this time – overlapping the mask
- Remove the mask and stamp the sentiment mat and layer together and accent with some sequins.
- The 3rd card is made with a card base from Mango Melody and a matt of Blackberry Bliss.
- Punch a mask from post it note
- Stamp the top layer of a wreath out from the mask.
- Stamp the leaves onto post it notes over the sticky bit and cut them out. Mask over the top layer and stamp the other layers by repeating the masking process.
- Remove your masks, add a sentiment.
- Matt and layer the card together then add a bow and a trinket
