Masking Technique Using Stamps

Well I hope you all enjoyed the fantastic weather we had for March break! We sure did and believe it or not we are back to wearing our winter boots. (boo hoo)  It's hard to know when to put those winter clothes away, we were wearing shorts for 2 days with a whopping 26 degrees and 2 days later below 0... there really must be something to this Global Warming hey???? Well I'm confused thats for sure, hahaha

Today I want to share with you a a technique that I learned from Card-Making-Magic.com , the lovely Christina is always inspiring me for she is up to date with all the techniques and is so awesome to go through all that work to share it with us!!!

The technique is called MASKING. Christina has an awesome easy to follow tutorial with pictures so take yourself on over there right now so you can understand my card. (I will wait for you!)

Ok, you're back! Soooo as Christina suggested I looked and seen what stamps I could marry together and unfortunately I didn't have any little girl stamps nor did I have and nature stamps! (Note to self, GET SOME!!! ). What I did have was a sentiment stamp with a border  and and decor square stamp that cost a whole dollar...

I was determined to use this technique so I went for it and I was sooooooo pleased with the results!!! The stamps I used were wooden and I recommend clear so that you know where you are placing it on the paper... I was pretty much eyeballing the whole time.


So okay I don't have baker's twine after saying at least 10 times that I have to get it, instead I used Bernat Wool (hehe), what ever goes,  right????, that is what I love about creating, there are no limits!


Have a great day and hopefully I will see you again tomorrow, I have something really different to show you!!

Oooooh !!! Neat idea with the lovely decor backing stamp... what a difference a dollar stamp can make... and looking in your stash for alternatives will always turn up something that is just as good.
