Card Classes

Masking Class

Yay Yay – I’ve got a little bit of time up my sleeve……so I thought I would pop in here and show you a couple of projects we did in a Masking class recently.

Each week I run stamping Classes to share techniques and projects with everyone.  You can visit the Classes Tab on my Blog to find out what classes are coming up…….or you can also visit my Stampin Up Web Site as they are listed there too.

There are a couple of different ways you can use masking on a project.  Masking is where you cover up part of the card or image and then stamp or colour over it.

The first card we did used a template (mask) that we placed over the top of our card and then we sponged ink through the gaps in the mask.  Here we used the Sheet left from the Blooms Die Cut Flowers as a mask.  I got the idea from my friend Sarah….Thank you Sarah.

I love the Taken With Teal colour but don’t used it often – so challenged myself to use it.  And I was really pleased with the colour combination result.

Our next card was a different type of masking….where we stamped some of the image then masked it….then stamped over the top again.  When the mask is removed you have a layed effect.  It gives the project dimension.

A great Man card.  Although – at the time we did this class it was close to Fathers Day – so some of the ladies put “Happy Fathers Day” on their card.
