Technique Tuesday: Decorative Masks

Have you tried the new Decorative Masks from Stampin' Up!? They are simple and so much fun!

I was inspired by the Designer Series Paper that I used last week, so I had to create my own background.

I created this background using the Stripes Decorative Mask with a sponge dauber and Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze ink. I taped the Very Vanilla cardstock down very gently to a piece of scratch paper with some masking tape. Then I taped the mask down over the top of it so that neither one would move as I was working.

I stamped the leaf from For All Things and cut each one out with my Paper Snips. The Grateful For You is part of the Merry Everything stamp set, which coordinates with the new Note Tag Punch. In fact you can purchase the two bundled together and save 15%!

Check out Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration for more details on the masks, as well as more inkspiration for using them.

    1. Thanks, Diana! The more I look at this one; it's definitely one of my favs!
