Reverse Masking Technique with Winter Woods

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have my video to share with you today … I am demonstrating the “Reverse Masking” technique and highlighting two different mediums you can use to create your reverse mask! I also have some additional stamping tips to share with you. Sit back and enjoy the video …

What a fun and easy technique this is …. It’s an oldie but a goodie!! I love how this technique creates depth to your card without all the layers and hazzle! Which one of the mediums to do this technique do you prefer? The sponge daubers or the brush? The Blending Brushes will be available in the upcoming Jan – June Mini catalog!

I used Shaded Spruce for my sponging and for the tree and of course it is the main color of our designer paper which comes from the Wonder of the Season and is called the “Tis the Season” 6 x 6, and is layered onto the Basic Black card base.

The Tree and Greeting both come from the Winter Woods stamp set … it was Hot, Hot, Hot last year but I think it’s the perfect year round stamp set!

A little piece of the extra designer paper was adhered inside to coordinate our entire card. The pretty gold edged Real Read ribbon is from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo pack.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and checking it out.

Have a beautiful day ~

Simply Sunday: Reflections of Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How are you enjoying the Holiday Catalog and all the goodies inside? It’s a fabulous catalog … isn’t it! However, I want to remind you of the beautiful stamp sets that we have in our Annual Catalog … so, today I’m going to share some great cards that were created with the stamp sets you will find in it …

One of my favorites is the Merry Christmas to all (and the coordinating dies) This is perfect if you need to make quick -n- easy cards, and don’t feel bad about that because we are all busy … just pair it with one of our beautiful designer papers.

One this card I simply used the Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes … embossed a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder and used the die cuts to create an impressive greeting!

My next card highlights the stamp set … just add designer paper!!

Another one of my favorites that you will find in the Annual catalog will not only satisfy your holiday card making needs, but will extend throughout the year … WINTER WOODS STAMP SET:

This beautiful card was created by one of my friends and downline members; Kathy Czerwinski.  This card is simply stamped multiple times … the lighter trees were “stamped off” first before stamping onto her cardfront.

Let’s take that same stamp set and use it for the perfect birthday card …

I used that same stamping technique that Kathy did by stamping off … add some designer paper and you have the perfect quick -n- easy cards.

I have one more from the Winter Woods stamp set …

I love the simplicity of this card … this is another that would work perfectly for a birthday or thinking of you card. Replace the red glimmer paper behind the stamped tree and use your (or their) favorite color.  I embossed the background with the Woodland Embossing Folder … this adds texture to the card.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at what you could create with these amazing stamp sets. I love the Holiday Catalog but our Annual Catalog is one of the best tools you can get your hands on … so many great samples, fun and informative tips and a whole bunch of cools stuff to satisfy our creative habit!

Thanks for hanging out with me on this Sunday,

I hope you have a beautiful day.
