Masking - Day 2


Today's card is one that I've made for a very dear friend.
She was married for the very 1st time at the beginning of this month. 
                              The card is similar to her wedding invitations and it included a                                 beautiful photo of her on her wedding day in Rebate, Spain. 
This is Julie and her husband Russell.

The card is A5 one, basically a sheet of A4 cardstock folded in half.
I embossed the Calypso Coral twice with the Oh My Stars TIEF.

The leaves were using the new stamp set called Painted Harvest.
I stamped the leaves and then the veins in 3 colours. 
Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Wild Wasabi.

I stamped 2 sets of leaves onto the top of a post it note so that when they were cut out, 
there was sticky behind the leaves. I stamped the 1st set of leaves, popped the post it leaves over to mask what I had stamped then stamped some more leaves in another colour. I continued doing this all the way round. Before the final set was stamped, I added both the post it notes to the 1st set and the last set of leaves that I stamped. I was then able to stamp the leaves into the gap that was left without marking the other leaves.

 Using a craft knife, I cut between some of the leaves and with scissors         
cut off the outside edges of the card. I usedone of the messages from the NEW set of message labels called Merry Little Labels.

I found the message on Pintrest and adjusted it a little!
Julie was only 11 years old when I moved next door to her and 
apparently she looks to me as her other mum! I'm very honoured to be classed as such.


Happy Birthday Julie and Russell. 
Their birthdays are within 3 days of each other.

Weekly Inspiration- Masking

Masking Technique 

Hello, thank you for popping by to see this week's projects.
For today's class I would like to show you what a very dear friend of ours
 has made for our team training swap.
This lovely card front shows in beautiful color what an amazing effect masking can have.

This lovely card was made by Jackie Hall from Dorset.
Using a post it-note to mask over the images already done and then sponging from the 
edge of the note to add more shade.
Jackie used Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze for the stamping and base mat
and Very Vanilla for the top mat. 
Lovely isn't it?
Thank you so much Jackie.

Orange by any other name...

If you're of a certain age and from the UK this phrase will mean something ....
"You've Been  Tango'd"!!!
(Sorry to everyone else but I couldn't resist 😉 lol )
For those of us who like Orange this card is perfect, oh and the sentiment goes so well with the Peekaboo Peach theme 😆
