The Masked Stamper

Hi peeps!  Our stamp clubs yesterday learned about masking!  It's an easy process, a few steps involved, but it really creates a cool look with just some stamps and a few post-it notes!  This is one of  the projects we made using Swirly Bird and the retiring colors of Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi:

The club didn't make the following cards, they were samples that I made ahead of time, showing them other ways that masking can be used.  This is a note card made with Berry Burst cardstock and Color Theory DSP and another set of images from Swirly Bird...the little bird and nest!  I think this is my favorite one:

And using the big floral image from Flourishing Phrases, I stamped it in Crushed Curry, masked it and stamped the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist, then mounted it on a panel of Color Theory DSP.  Since it was pretty large, I created a custom envelope with DSP and the Envelope Punch Board!

And finally, I received this card from my sweet friend Debbie.  We made a card similar to this in our last stamp class by using Blooms and Wishes to create a one-sheet wonder.  She was inspired by a the colors on a tissue box!  I love this color combo:  Soft Sky, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Basic Gray!

I love it when my customers go home and put to use what they learned in club!  Thanks for popping in today!

I chauffeured Cassidy to karate last week....this was taken BEFORE she went to class, when we pulled into the parking lot!  It was a long week, I guess!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

What a lovely group of cards you created, LeAnne! I think I saved every one of them to my favorites folder! Each has it's own special something on them and I love that about your cards! Such pretty colors & did a great job! TFS and stay dry today! More rain in the forecast but I think we need it to wash away the pollen! :)
