Rooted In Nature Cards: Masking Technique Part 2

Rooted In Nature Cards:
Masking Technique Part 2

Thanks for visiting! Today’s Rooted In Nature Cards are a continuation of Wednesday’s post with a simple masking technique using something likely found in your junk drawer: Post-It Notes. If you missed that post, I encourage you to check it out HERE.

Time to move from Wednesday’s summery Tropical Chic cards into a distinctly fall feel… at least in our craft areas! Included are the two simple one-layer cards seen in the Video Tutorial, PLUS two more bonus cards!

Are you just lovin’ that sentiment? It’s found in the new COUNTRY HOME Stamp Set coming in the Fall/Winter Holiday Catalog that releases Sept. 5th, 2018.  If you like the country farmhouse look, you’ll adore this suite of products; watch for a sneak peek coming next week.

This color combination is definitely “rooted” in autumn colors- the perfect match to the ROOTED IN NATURE stamps.

In the Video Tutorial, I die-cut a circle from a Post-It Note (used in the top card) and mentioned keeping the leftover piece for another project: it was used to create the BONUS card below.

Notice the ‘BE STRONG–BE HAPPY–BE YOU’ sentiment (from the ROOTED IN NATURE stamp set) stamped all over the card? A few snips with my scissors separated what was one stamp into three. See this post for how-and-why tips on getting more versatility from your stamps. (NOTE: If you don’t want to cut your stamp, use the Post-It Notes to mask the area you don’t want).

See that amazing texture on the Mossy Meadow Cardstock above? That’s the new CORRUGATED Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder coming Sept. 5th! It easily creates dimension on your projects like you wouldn’t believe!
