Coloring Fun

Delicate Layered Masks

The Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative masks are one of the WOW items that I played with from the 2022 Mini Catalog! I have a few color combos that I love to put together. This card shows the Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight mixed with Basic White and a card base of Just Jade (retiring the end of this month).

Both the Mini Catalog and the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog have a wonderful array of masks to choose from! Plus, they are a great tool for beginner stampers along with experienced crafters! There are so many uses!!! You can use Sponge Daubers, Blending Brushes, Embossing Pastes, Stampin’ Spritzers, and so much more!

I used the Blending Brushes to color this card. I first placed the Basic White piece on the Stamparatus Plate and held it down with washi tape. I used side of the mask with the bigger flowers to color the Daffodil Delight. Next, I followed up with the other side of the mask that has the thinner flower lines with Crushed Curry. To complete the look, I used Just Jade with the leaf masks.

I wanted a simple sentiment on a small piece of Smoky Slate. Just enough so it stood out but didn’t take away from the main image! The Night of Navy piece is dry embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder. Pearls are the final touch to make this card a masterpiece! And it was so easy too! Why not give it a try?

There are only a couple weeks left until the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and other items retire for good! Browse through link to get your favorites before they are gone! I love to spoil those who help me and my business! I will send you a thank you gift for choosing me as your demonstrator!

Technique Video

Using Masks to Create Backgrounds

When I made this card, I didn’t intend to make a pun about using masks, but here it is! I was just playing with some pieces that I had stamped and cut out a few weeks ago. I wanted to play with my Decorative Masks and spritzing a colored background! I really wish you could see the card in person!

I made a video to also show you how to make this card and share some useful tips! A special thank you to Patty Bennet for the suggestion of using Stamparatus Plates to keep your work area mess free! (mostly mess free)

I did try this technique with Whisper White card stock, but it bled a bit.

Here is a close up of the card so you may be able to see the shimmer paint that is mixed in with the Stamping Spritzer. To make your bottle of color: pour rubbing alcohol about 3/4 of the way to the top of the bottle. Add 4-8 drops of your ink refill. You need more for lighter colors and less for darker colors. Then, you add a drop of Frost White Shimmer Paint in the spritzer. Shake really well!

Trust me-it shimmers!

I really enjoyed making this card and that it turned into a club project too! If you are wanting to purchase some items, here is the host code for April!
