Technique Tuesday:masking technique and Introducing Daffodil Daydreams

Daffodil card using masking and blending techniques

So here is a really lovely new stamp set to introduce you to…Daffodil Daydreams a perfect Spring like set – which I certainly need on the current grey day! and how about these adorable little brushed metal butterflies?

The technique of masking is one I use quite often in my crafting…. it is a quick and easy way to ensure that your repeat stamped images don’t overlap and a quick way to add dimension too. All you need is to stamp your image onto the top section of your post it notes and fussy cut (and don’t forget you only need to stamp the top image – you can easily fussy cut through 3 or 5 layers of post it notes.

Once you have used your post it mask – just pop it back into your stamp case for the next occasion – I find they can be used three or four times. The blended background is easy with our blending brushes…they are so soft but also so dense. They can easily be washed – but with three in a pack with only a couple of sets and you can one for each colour group.

So whether it is Mothers Day or Easter (with the sentiments in the stamp set) or maybe a get well or happy birthday – I am sure you will come back to use this set time and time again.
