Stampin For All Design Team Project: Masking

Nigezza Creates #stampinforall Design team Masking

Hi and welcome to my blog that is featuring the card I made for the Design Team project from #stampinforall. The theme was masking. I had seen this type of masked background before and really wanted to give it a try. I didn't watch any tutorials I just got stuck in and had a go myself!

Stamp sets used

I used my most loved stamp set 'Butterfly Basics' for the focal point of this card. I used the masking technique to get the fern leaf behind the flower. I have done this many times so already had the flower fussy cut.

#toptip - keep your masks with the stamp sets to use again and again!

For the back ground I used 'Sheet Music'

I love this stamp and have used it on lots of cards, but never like this.

How I made this card

If you want to know how I made this card pop back tomorrow for full instructions and video tutorial. For now just enjoy all the creations by members of the #stampinforall Facebook group, it is a wonderful place to share and get inspiration. 

Cards made by group members

This lovely card was made by Gwenn Crawford, she used a stencil and masked off the middle section then added the sentiment. I love how clean and simple this card has turned out. Simply Stunning.

These two beautiful cards were made by Elaine Spencer. She was really clever with this card because the second card was made using the masked section of the first. Its a BOGOF (buy one get one free) I love it!

This beautiful card was made by Karen McClure she used a floral die as a stencil and a super soft brush and wisteria wonder ink to create the background. So effective, I would never have thought to use a die in that way. 

This lovely book mark was made using one of my favourite stamp sets, Waterfront. It looks like a mask was created using the Everyday Label punch and stamped through the aptitude, its really effective. Thank you Helen Chandler for this, I love it. 

This stunning card was made by Valerie Litten. When I first saw it I assumed the harlequin background was the mask and the rest was stamps, but its actually 3 masks. Amazing.

Here is a second card made by Valerie Litten, I love it when a circle is used on a white card and sponged around to create a moon, its so effective. Lovely landscape card. 

A late addition!

I just had to add this to the blog post :-)

This card was made by Lorraine Turner, I just love it, lots of masking going on here to make it look like the animals are all standing together in a group. Amazing work there, wonderful colouring in as well, which is something I struggle with, mine usually looks like something I did in primary school! 

Thank you everyone for joining in with this DT Challenge :-) 

Looking forward to my June challenge, I hope you will join me again for that one.

See you soon
