Stamp It! Techniques, Vol. 2 is here and I am one happy girl! Being a stamper at heart, this issue makes me giddy because of all the creative ideas inside. Stampers know how to get clever with their supplies and it shows on each and every page!
Today I am going to share with you the Masking section of the issue. Masking is one of the ultimate ways for a stamper to be creative. Take a look at these projects!
This card is the ultimate example of the simplest and best form of masking. Heather stamped her typewriter onto the card base. Then she stamped her image again onto a PostIt Note or other masking product. She trimmed it out perfectly and placed it over the top of her stamped image. This allowed Heather to stamp the stripe in the background. This card is executed so perfectly, I had to look at it several times!
Windy’s card is beautiful and super trendy. The background was created with a stencil. Stencils are everywhere right now. The ultimate masking tool. Windy placed her mask on her cardstock and went over it with paint. She also stamped over the mask. I love the depth and elegance both techniques brought to her project.
The title of this card says it all, awesome! Bright colors, trendy images, and a fun masking technique make this card awesome! In fact, I was so inspired by how Teri created this card; I had to try it for myself!
I began by cutting a large Post-It Note in half, lengthwise, and placing it at an angle on the top and bottom of my cardstock panel. Post-It Notes are my favorite for masking. They are easy to find, easy to remove, and very versatile.
Once the mask was in place, I stamped several heart images in red ink, repeatedly.
And look at how well the mask worked. How cool is that?
And the final result.
