I'm Laura, and today’s tutorial focuses on masking with stamps.
Masking is a basic technique that allows images to overlap without showing a tangle of intersecting lines. It is done very simply with either sticky notes or plain paper and repositionable adhesive.
Now for the next frame I moved the sticky note to the bottom and stamped the ornament. I must have had too much coffee because my hand wiggled and the image is not so crisp. Normally this would bother me and I’d start over but instead I’m going to try to fix this later.
Next is Masking – Level 2. I stamped the ornament on the sticky part of a sticky note and cut it out to “mask” the ornament so that a snowflake could go behind it. I only cut out the one side because that’s the area I need to mask right now. Once you’ve stamped and cut out a mask you can use it over and over. I just stick them on the clear sheet with the stamps.
Here it is used on a layout.
I used a sentiment from Celebrate the Seasons for my title.
I’ve done the masking technique with the filmstrip before on cards, too.
Here is a summery card I made with Awesome Days of Summer.
And a birthday card made with Happy Birthday.
