Back to my regularly scheduled post:
Last week I was supposed to spend a few days with my youngest son, Zachary and his family. Unfortunately, Emy came down with the flu so I could not go. Then Jackson came down with the flu. Then Zachary came down with it. I am just waiting for the phone call that Mary now has it. This season has been a bad one with the flu and RSV everywhere. Be careful out there!
I wanted to try another masking technique so I decided to use the Split Card Textures dies. Masking is when you block off sections of your card stock when adding ink to other sections. Stampin’ Up!® sells Masking Paper which is used to do this technique. It is sticky on one side and paper on the other.
I first took a piece of Masking Paper and cut it out using one of the Split Card Textures Dies. I peeled off the backing and adhered it to the corner of a piece of Basic White card stock. I used a Blending Brush to add Balmy Blue ink to it. Then I just peeled the Masking Paper up and the ink was only where there was no Masking Paper.
Next, I had a bunch of pieces of the Fitted Florals Designer Series Paper left over from another project. Fitting Florals DSP was released in November for Demonstrators and in December for customers. It goes with the Framed Florets Bundle that will be in the 2023 January – April Mini Catalog but the paper is only available while supplies last or December 31st (whichever comes first). Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.
I love your beautiful card, Susan. Very nice how you used the masking technique. And I love how you put together the flowers. They look like a border die. I’m going to try this to see how I do. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Sandy! I love that DSP!
This is GORGEOUS, Susan! I love the idea of masking, and your floral border is perfect. Such a wonderful card!!
Susan, your making on this card is spectacular. It demonstrates such a subtle, attractive look. Just lovely.
