Double Masking Technique

Double Masking Technique

It's that time of the week - Saturday! And that means we have a new Technique Challenge inside Stamping And Blogging.  It is Double Masking Technique!  I'm a featuring a bunch of new In Colors as well as the Falling Flowers stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Card Instructions

Inks: Basic Black, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky
Paper: Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum
Accessories: Layering Squares framelits, Big Shot, Stampin' Dimensionals, Dauber
Stamps: Falling Flowers
  1. The card base is 5-1/2 x 11, score in 1/2 to make a square card.
  2. In my card, I first created the mask out of Whisper White cardstock, 5x5 piece of paper.  Then used the new Layering Squares framelits and placed all 4 of them on the paper and through the Big Shot!
  3. Then, I placed that "mask" on my focal panel piece of Whisper White (5x5 but then I trimmed  later, after stamping, to about 4-1/2 x 4-1/2) card stock and begin stamping.
  4. First I stamped all the large Sweet SugarPlum flowers.  And then stamped an extra one on scrap paper and cut out to make a mask.
    • I then went around to each square, one at a time. Placed the mask over the Sweet SugarPlum flower, and then stamped the smaller pink (Flirty Flamingo) flowers.
    • Then again with the mask in place, did the leaves (Emerald Envy), and then the smallest flower in Peekaboo Peach.
    • I did that for each square. So it does take some time.
    • Then to make fill in the white space in the squares, I used Soft Sky and a Dauber to add more color and define the squares so you can more clearly see a mask was used.
  5. Then I stamped a greeting on Whisper White in Basic Black, on a diagonal 1-3/4" square. Then matter with Sweet SugarPlum.
  6. Matted the focal panel with Sweet SugarPlum. Adhered the focal panel to the Card Base with SNAIL.
  7. Then adhere the diagonal greeting to the focal panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Sandi also created a beauty with circles!!! So I did the squares, she used circles, but you can use whatever you'd like to create the larger masked areas.  She has a more bold look, I have a softer one. Hope you enjoy them both :D
