Hop along with the Design Team to explore the possibilities of Stamping Techniques 101 Blog Hop – Die Cut Masking. This is an easy but effective technique which will have you making great cards just like a pro in no time.
Die Cut Masking
My steps for making this project
Place Masking or Painter’s Tape on the clear platform
Carefully lift off the tape and you will be left with your die cut in the shape you wanted
Place a post-it note to help position your die rather than drawing a line
I placed post-it notes on the underside of my A4 Glossy White Cardstock so I didn’t need to place my fingers on the card
Use the Sponge Brayers to sponge on colour, rolling over the die cut until you are happy with the colour.
Use different colours to create like an ombre effect. Here I have used Blushing Bride Classic Stampin’ Pad, Berry Burst Classic Stampin’ Pad and Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ Pad. I added some Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack and some Pearl Basic Jewels
My tips and tricks for Die Cut Masking.
Use a good quality Masking or Painter’s tape and try to get one which is a good width and will take may different sized dies
You also want a tape which is not too sticky that you can’t lift it off your card.
