Masking with Flowers

Where does all the time go? It has been a couple of weeks at least since my last post. I haven't been entirely idle on the craft front although the day job has got in the way of any real creativity.
Last weekend I was playing with a set of Sizzix dies and stamps that I purchased at The Glitter Pot back in May. See how the time flies, I hadn't even got round to opening the packet!

Here are two cards using the same set : Sizzix Framelits & Stamps - Flowers, Scallop.
The first was and exercise in masking which can be quite addictive and is certainly effective. I have quite a stash of post-it notes now as I picked up a few advertising ones at a recent work exhibition and they are perfect to use for masks. Interesting to note that Tim's Tag for August uses the masking technique so I want to have a go at that when I get some spare time too, the examples are fabulous, I bet I don't have any of the materials so I'll have to improvise (or shop?).

Stamped with Memento Angel Pink, Rose Bud and Pear Tart on white cardstock and mounted on fuschia pink card from Craftwork Cards.

The cardstock is from Craftwork cards, as is the dotty paper. The flowers are stamped using the Memento Angel Pink ink pad and die cut and mounted with foam pads. A few gems added and the sentiment and the simple card is done. Its OK, I prefer the first one as there is more stamping and less bling but thats just my personal taste.

Have a great weekend and thank you for dropping by.

  1. I also love all the stamping on the first one - great masking! - but I do like the bold red with that delicate pastel pink, as well as the dimensional pop for the flowers on the second... lovely cards, Julia. Hope you have a great Sunday!
