A new technique- Masking


How to mask using post it notes
Made easier using the Big Shot! and framelets

One great effect is overlaying floral images like in the happy blooming birthday card above used with one of my favorite stamp sets, Flower Patch.  I made the masking effect a little more obvious by leaving an un - inked barrier between flowers but you could make a seamless mask for an impressive effect.  All you need is a stamp set, ink pad, post it notes and scissors.

1. Stamp your base (the larger pink flower and the two leaves above it)
2. Stamp the pink flower on a post it note. Cut around the flower closely.
3. Place the post - it cut out over the pink flower
4. Stamp the blue flower right over the post it note. Adjust the post it note to ensure that the other side  is still covered.  Stamp as many times as you like as long as you are covering the flower with the post it.

For a faster time, cut the post it with the Flower Fair Framelets & the Big Shot!

To make the above card you need Flower Patch & Banners Framelets Dies

The new catalog has many floral options. Check back to see what I do with my pre- order, Fabulous Flora
