Techniques Series | How to use a Die as a Mask

Stamping Techniques Series

I have one card, two ways for you today! I shared a card yesterday using the Oh So Eclectic Bundle…. and I have another for you today! The dies in this bundle are special… some of them cut, some emboss, some cut the image out of the card stock, and some … leave the image in! and it is these dies that we are playing with today.

I created my own mask using the diamond pattern die in this set….

Creating a mask with these dies is super easy… I simply run them through my Big Shot with piece of Window Sheet, but you could use Vellum… I use Window Sheet because that way I can save my mask and use it again! Running Window Sheet through the Big Shot can be a little frightening, as it makes a whole series of strange whaling and cracking noises…. but its OK, it doesn’t damage the Window Sheet or, more importantly, the Big Shot!

Oh So Eclectic Card Masking Video Tutorial from Stampin' Up!

This first card uses the mask with the fabulous New Embossing Paste! I am LOVING playing with this stuff, and I have a couple of videos coming soon all about it. I have coloured the paste here using Night of Navy ink…. but I really needed to add some more ink to get that true Night of Navy colour. Still, it’s not a disaster, just a happy accident! and a learning experience… because next time I know I need to add more!

The second card, made in the video, I ink blended Night of Navy through the Mask. This was I guaranteed myself a true Night of Navy colour! but, I sacrificed that dimension that the Embossing Paste brings.
