Masking with Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature.

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.

Card One

  1. 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.
  2. Cut a panel from thin Very Vanilla 10.1cm x 14.4cm
  3. Die cut or punch a mask from a post it note and place where you want it on the panel.
  4. Stamp all over the panel overlapping the mask firmly as much as possible.
  5. Carefully remove the mask and stamp your sentiment in the space.
  6. Pull the panel edges carefully through the ink pad taking care not to damage the ink pad.
  7. Stick the panel to you card base – Voila

Card Two

  1. 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
  2. Cut a panel from Blackberry Bliss 10.1cm x 14.4cm and a panel from thin very vanilla 9.7cm x 14cm.
  3. For the second card use a piece of thin copier paper to make a mask.
  4. Secure the mask using post it notes or tape – great job for retired washi tape!
  5. Stamp firmly inside the circle this time – overlapping the mask
  6. Remove the mask and stamp the sentiment mat and layer together and accent with some sequins.

Card Three

  1. The 3rd card is made with a card base from Mango Melody and a matt of Blackberry Bliss.
  2. Punch a mask from post it note
  3. Stamp the top layer of a wreath out from the mask.
  4. 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.
  5. Remove your masks, add a sentiment.
  6. Matt and layer the card together then add a bow and a trinket
