Wow! Amazing Card-Making Technique Using Mask Stencils | Lydia’s Crafty Corner VIDEO

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone and Happy New Year! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing a fun technique that I like to call Peek-A-Boo Masked Stencils. I'll be using Heart Flowers Stamp Set and Broken Chevrons Stencil.

20191229 223008So to start, I took a piece of masking paper and cut circles into it using Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set. I kept the circle masks to the side and placed the negative piece over a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Then I stamped within the circles using Heart Flowers Stamp Set. I used Volcano Lake, Lagoon, Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart and Ruby Red Inks for the flowers, Fresh Leaf Ink for the leaves and Obsidian Ink for the flower centers. Once this was done, I added the circle masks over the stamped circles and removed the negative masking sheet from the card panel.

20191229 223415Then I added some Mango Smoothie Ink to the panel. When I had color added to the card, I placed the  Broken Chevrons Stencil and added the same ink color over it. Once I was happy, I removed the circle masks. For the sentiment, I used Handwritten Hello die-cut from Vellum and Jet Black Cardstock.

Great use of those nesting dies that we have in our “stash”. Finished product was very pretty. Hmmm!

The stencil finish and dual tone is a great tip for the fill.
