Totally Techniques: Masking

Good morning stampers!  This month's technique is called Masking. Wait until you see the Totally Techniques Design Team in action this week!!!!

Stampin' Up! Balloon Builders

My card this week features the Balloon Builders stamp set by Stampin' Up!  It's the Masking Technique and one that you can do rather quickly as it's a one layer card!

Masking Technique

Covering previously stamped images, and then stamping over them/near them/around them so they appear in front and the newly stamped image(s) to the back.

Notice the multiple layers of balloons in my card.

Quick Steps On Making This Card

  • Vertical, top fold card, base in Whisper White.
  • Stamp the first few balloons in Flirty Flamingo.
  • Then stamp a few of the same size balloons on scrap and punch them out (with Balloon punch).
  • Then use those punched out balloons to cover the balloons you just stamped.
  • Then stamp more balloons in Tip Top Taupe with the larger balloon stamp in Balloon Builders.
  • Stamp the balloon strings in Tip Top Taupe.
  • Then stamp a few more balloons in different sizes on scrap using Daffodil Delight ink, and then punch them out.  Adhere to card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Stamp greeting in Tip Top Taupe.
  • You can leave as is or continue....
  • Using a Blender Pen (or you can use an Aqua Painter), color the background of the card in Soft Sky ink.
  • Add some bling with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
