What is the Masking Technique?

Q: What is the masking technique and how do I get the best results with it?

A: Masking means to cover up one area when stamping another.  It is used when you want one image to appear behind another.  Or you might use it to stamp inside a die cut, or to only stamp part of  your card.

It can be used many different ways to achieve some really fun looking hand made cards!

Tips:

  • Use thin paper for seamless stamping.  If you use thicker paper or cardstock, you will get a funky white edge around your stamping.  A think piece of paper allows the stamp the most contact with your paper, resulting in a perfectly stamped masked image!
  • Use a post-it note, or 2 Way Glue so your mask will stay in place (apply your 2 Way Glue, allow it to dry and BAM!  It’s a temporary adhesive turning your scrap paper into a post-it note of sorts!).
  • Save your masks to use again!

Stay tuned, tomorrow I will have another card in my KISS Cards Series (Keep It Simple Stamper) using the masking technique!

I just filmed the KISS Card video and I’ll tell ya it’s a ride!  The first card ended up being a Not-so-KISS Card and that one will come to StampNation tomorrow.

The second KISS Card Video had a bump in the road…or two…which resulted in a part two…this card turned out different than I had planned and is a questionable KISS Card.  Check back tomorrow- you’ll see what I mean and you can let me know if YOU think it is a KISS Card!

Have a great day, thanks for checking in and Happy Masking!
