Archive for the ‘Masking-Reverse Masking’ Category


It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC896) this week and I chose Running with Sisters & their Pinterest Board. THIS was my inspiration. I loved the flowers & bright orange color.

For my mini slimline card, I die cut the panel & sponged on the apricot & nectar inks for my background, only going about 3/4 of the way up. Then I stamped a bunch of the 3 sizes of daisies onto copy paper and die cut them all to use as masks. I had already decided to bleach the petals but I needed the masks to arrange where to stamp, then mask the ones that needed it.

After stamping the daises w/ Versafine Clair ink (I used this because Memento just doesn’t stand up to the bleach very well), I used a synthetic paint brush to bleach the petals. FYI..the paint bristles  need to be synthetic because bleach will totally destroy natural bristles, so go ahead & use a cheap synthetic one. Depending on the ink color, bleach will usually not take the paper back to white. Since I used a red-orange, after bleaching, I got an off white. I also stamped 3 more daisies onto white & die cut them. These 3 are popped up w/ fun foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Gerry, the newest Featured Stamper (FS827) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept most of the colors, the southwest theme & layout, but I used different dies and made mine a Christmas card.

I started my card by masking a large circle for the moon, and another for the sky area then sponged in the colors for the ground. After reversing the mask, I sponged in the sky colors. The arbor and 2 portions of the fence were die cut out of white along w/ the longhorn skull. The wagon wheel and cowboy hat were die cut out of Kraft and sponged w/ brown inks. I used green for the wreath and cactus dies. After arranging and attaching all the dies, I stamped the curved greeting on the right,

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS819) so a big congrats to Charmaine! She has a wonderful gallery and after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the big circular element and bright colors but used different images, dies and left off the shaker element.

For my autumn gnome card, I started by masking a large circle and sky area & sponging in some bright green for the ground. After reversing the horizontal mask, I sponged in the bright blues for sky then used the reverse circular mask to sponge in the yellows & oranges for the sun. The gnome house and gnome were stamped on separate pieces of card, colored. The gnome was die cut and I fussy cut the gnome house. The gnome was popped up a bit & I added some little leaves here & there.

Here are the Copics I used for the gnome:
