Winter Wishes – Masking a Border

BlogStar Annette Witherspoon is back today with a super easy introduction to a great technique – masking! Her snowflake card is much easier even than it looks and produces fantastic results, so you can be proud to say you made it yourself. This beautiful card would be a good choice for those cards you just didn’t get done before Christmas. Swap out the ornament for a large snowflake and a Happy Winter greeting, no one will ever know!

——-

Hello friends. This is BlogStar Annette Witherspoon and I’m back with some clean and simple cards. We usually associate masks with Halloween, not Christmas, but today, I’m going share a masked Christmas card. I’m not talking about the disguise. Masking is a technique in which you cover an area of your project that you don’t want to stamp on or ink in any way.

In the card I’m sharing, I used the masking technique to create a clean edge. First, I stamped some snowflakes from the Snowflake Symphony Perfectly Clear set with Versamark and embossed them with Detail White Embossing Powder. In this case, clear would also work because the paper is white. Then, I masked off the edges of the white card stock. I used paper scraps and adhered it with re-positionable glue, but a low tack tape will work well in this case, too.

Once I masked off the edges, I used a brayer to apply ink to the paper. I used light blue on the bottom and darker blue on top to give it a graduated look. Finally, I stamped and embossed the ornament from the Ornament Greetings Perfectly Clear set onto red cardstock using Detail White Embossing Powder. I added the sentiment, also from the Ornament Greetings set, with Sterling Silver Embossing Powder and some ribbon and gems to finish it.

Winter is on the Way

BlogStar Yana Smakula shows you today how easy and fast a fantastic card can be with just a little planning. This is the type of easy tip we often forget to mention, but we almost always stamp out a great card idea on a piece of scratch paper first. It helps us see what elements will be in front of others, and how elements will flow on a page. What a fantastic Tutorial Yana has prepared here for us! (not to mention how much we LOVE that she did winter in hot pink!!)
Hi everyone! BlogStar Yana Smakula here! Today I’d like to show you a way to make a quick and easy winter card using mostly snowflake stamps.
