Hello everyone. Today is another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. Today’s challenge is to use your favorite technique. Oh boy. This was a hard one for me. I don’t really have a favorite technique. I asked Buffy if plain old stamping was a technique. I could hear her eye roll from here! I decided to use a technique that I used a couple of years ago (you can see it HERE). It uses ink and masks. I did it a little differently this time after I saw a great video from Jennifer McGuire the other day. I love her videos because she shows some great techniques in a clear and easy to understand way.
The colors I used for these cards are Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit Grove and Basic Black. I also used a brand new product from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. It is a new set of Masks (stencils) called Basic Pattern Decorative Masks. I used the polka dot one. I was very excited to see new Masks since we have had the current ones for a long time.
To make this card I used a stencil that I actually made. It is a stencil that can be used to make a wreath out of stamped images. I lay my cardstock in the stencil and layered the polka dot Mask over it. I added ink to the stencil using my Stampin’ Up!® Sponges turning the cardstock with every new color. It ended up leaving a white space where you can put the sentiment.
For the sentiments I used the stamp sets called Broadway Birthday and A Wish For Everything. The dies I used were Stitched Rectangles and Word Wishes.
Now, let’s go check out Buffy’s and Jackie’s favorite technique. I hope they had an easier time than I did!

I LOVE this, Susan! It made such an awesome pattern, and the colors are lovely. I’m happy about the new masks, too, and I can’t wait to try this one!
Wonderful technique Susan. I often forget about this one. Love the colors
How cool – you created your own ‘turnabout’ pattern!
