Mask It At FSC

Who just wants all those Christmas cards to be over so that they can sit back, relax and enjoy the festive season which will soon be upon us … meeeeeee!!!

Not one but two cards to show you today and both have been made for Fashionable Stamping Challenges who want to see you MASK IT … please don’t forget that stamping.

First card is the one I showed my class how to make. There were two techniques which they learned how to do yesterday, one was the masking and the other was how to make a lace flower. The butterfly which was stamped onto vellum with white embossing powder was then stitched onto the lace flower rather than use any glue. If I am using stitching on my cards then I tend to use this method rather than glue. I love my insides to match the outside so we used the same masking method for the inside of the card and the paper used is the same as on the front, all edges were punched with the Martha Stewart doily punch.

Now this card is my play around card and my first time of using the Flitter Glue … whoa I love it. Can see me using this more and more now. This time I made a material flower but using the same method as above, again I have used a mask for the background.

Now is the time to hop on over to the FSC challenge and see what the amazing DT’s have been up to.
One very talented bunch of ladies that I have the honour to work with and I love everyone of them. x x x
Not forgetting the lovely Marina at Cottage Crafts who sponsors our challenge. x x x x

    Hi Shirley.
    I am just catching up a bit and love your ‘masking’ cards, they are both so beautifully delicate and use the technique perfectly.
    I don’t know if you are able to come over and whether I will see you soon, but in any case have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.
