Masking Technique with Delicate Dahlias

Masking isn't just for stepping up your Halloween Costumes. In fact, Masking is the name of the Stamping Technique I demonstrate for you in this video. You will love it. I make it easy with my tips. You'll be amazed at the depth that it creates in your stamping. It's a great technique to use with flowers and groups of images or even to create a scene like the Peaceful Deer standing in front of or behind a tree. So watch, learn, then grab your sticky notes and Paper Snips and get started masking.

Card Dimensions:

  • Basic White Thick Card Stock = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Mossy Meadow layer = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

 

The Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set is perfect for demonstrating the Masking Technique. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set I got FREE. You can too when you place a $100 Stampin' Up! order with me by September 30th.

 All you need to get started masking is some sticky notes and your Paper Snips!

The results you get with the Masking Technique are amazing. The dahlias look more realistic with flowers in front of and behind others and with the stamped leaves behind the flowers.

Sun Prints in Gray Granite

Have you seen the gorgeous new Sun Prints Suite in the Annual Catalog? If not, be sure to check it out on pages 90 - 91. It's got an amazing stamp set & dies bundle, gorgeous Designer Series Paper, and a fun Fern Embossing Folder. With a little creativity and imagination and inspiration, the possibilities are endless.

In this video replay of my May 20th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make 2 gorgeous cards with some of the Gray Granite prints in the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper pack. You'll see how to die cut a shape and then use both the positive and negative pieces to make 2 cards. You know me, if I can make 1 card, I might as well make 2. Right? A great way to build up a nice stash of cards to have on hand.

 

Stampin' Up! Sun Prints Suite - Mary Knabe For these 2 cards, I die cut the large rectangular label shape from the Painted Labels Dies from a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" DSP. I used the negative or "frame" piece for one card and the positive or "label" piece for the second card. The Vellum and Rustic Metallic Dots greatly enhance these simple but elegant cards.

Perfectly Penciled Cash Card for the Graduate

Mother's Day is here once again. Every year at this time, I find myself reflecting on my years as a mom. Am I good enough? Have I shown enough love? Did I praise enough? Was I a good listener? and on and on. Yes, I've always taken my role as a mom very seriously, maybe too much so at times???, I don't know. I consider being a mom the most important work I'll ever do. Did I always get it right? No. Did I make mistakes? Yes. I think I can look back at my 30+ years as a mom and honestly say I did my best - the best I knew how with what I had. From the moment they were born and I learned what instant love was to now as I embrace the time I get to spend with them as adult children, I have loved them unconditionally and with all my heart and soul, and I have thanked God every day that he entrusted them to me.

I look at my daughters now (Andrea is 30. Emily is 25.) and see what truly good people they are. They're hard working, kind, caring, loving, compassionate, respectful people. They always strive to do and be their best, give of themselves, and care for others. They're both quite fun to be around and are good at making me laugh and smile. I look at Andrea and Emily and see that they are my greatest achievement and my legacy. I am forever grateful to be their mom. 

My own mom passed on nearly 6 years ago. I spend time thinking about her too, knowing that she too did her best. It's still strange not to call her on this day to wish her Happy Mother's Day. I think, though, that she'd be just as proud of me and my family today as she was when she was here on earth with us. I think she looks down on us and sees the wonderful people we are and celebrates milestones and special moments with us and watches over us in our struggles too. I'm grateful for the signs I get that she is still with me in spirit.

Happy Mother's Day to ALL the wonderful moms out there. I hope your day is blessed with love, happiness, family, and friends, and perhaps a few surprises too.

This day is also a day of celebration for another reason. Today I'll watch my niece graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from The Ohio State University. I'm so proud of Alison, and in celebration of her achievement, I created a special money card for her. I want to show you how you can make a money card too. 

I've chosen some new products that I though would be perfect for this task. You can't go wrong with the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper for black & white cards with a pop of color. This black and white DSP can be used as is or customized with any of our color tools and inks. My money card also features the Happiness Abounds Bundle. Why not dress your cash gifts in some pretty packaging perfect for graduations, birthdays, weddings, Mother's Day, and so many more gift giving occasions. You'll have fun doing it and your special people will be delighted with your handmade presentation.

Cash Card Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Basic Black card base = 7" x 8 1/2"
  • Basic White card stock =  6 3/4" x 3" (cut 2) and 6 3/4" x 1 3/4"
  • Basic White for banner = 4" x 3/4" plus scrap for stamping & color flower and leaves
  • DSP = 6 5/8" x 2 7/8" and 6 5/8" x 1 5/8"
  • DSP for belly band = 8 1/2" x 1"

Watercolor Pencils on Black & My Story

Heat embossing followed by coloring with Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils on Basic Black card stock (or any color, for that matter) is fun and gives an amazing result. You'll see me demonstrate this technique in the video replay of my January 26th Facebook Live as I create a beautiful card featuring the Blessings of Home Stamp Set. This card is gorgeous. I hope you enjoy this video demonstration and give this technique a try. It's sure to impress your card recipients.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side.
  • DSP layer = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic Black card stock for stamping =

I did a spontaneous Facebook Live on January 25th sharing "My Story". If you are interested in hearing the story of my Stampin' Up! journey, click on the link below.

 

I'm just a girl with a goal! I have been working towards another major milestone on my Stampin' Up! journey - $400,000 Career Sales. Wow! What a ride it's been. I had a goal of achieving this milestone by January 31st. I didn't quite make it, but am I sad? No. Why? Two Reasons: 1) I know it will happen, and 2) I still have so much to be grateful for including all the wonderful people I've met along my SU! journey, all the friends I've made, my previous accomplishments, and all the opportunities that are to come.

Quick Tip Tuesday - Make a Frame with Dies

For today's Quick Tip Tuesday, I'm demonstrating how to make "frames" to use on your cards, scrapbook pages, and collages. It's super easy and gives even more versatility to your dies when you mix and match them to use in this unique way. Take a look and give it a try. You'll be glad you did!

Here's the card I made using the Pale Papaya frame I made in the video above. I used the largest Scalloped Contour Die with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die. It's easy to mix and match dies and the possibilities are endless. Consider making frames of different sizes and widths or even different shapes of dies like circles.
