Cutting for effect.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  You can mask a project but sometimes the lines get blurred or just don’t come out as clean and crisp as you would like them.  Instead of trying to mask, just cut.  If you cut your card stock before stamping you are guaranteed a clean edge.  You will need a scrap of card stock to create a base to glue the two together again.  A ribbon takes care of the cut and creates a cohesive image.

If you want to try this technique then come to Card Class!  I am taking RSVP’s for Saturday’s morning session (9-12) and the afternoon one (3-6) until Wednesday night.

Happy Crafting!

Masking with dies.

It’s Tutorial Thursday!  Dies can also be used to mask and create a background.  There is a little bit of finesse with it as you will see in the video when masking.  (You can’t forget that the die has been moved as you will cover what you just did.)  So here is the card I created with the new Snowflake Showcase available November 1.  (If you like this new product and want to be reminded as it becomes available please comment to let me know.)

Here is the video on how to create this card…Snowflake Video (https://youtu.be/uq-KPp3TaYY).

And if you want to learn in real life it will be available during the next Card Class.

Happy Crafting!
