Happy Whoo Hoo Wednesday! Deb Hickman from A World of Imagination has a great tutorial for you!


Hi there, it’s Whoo Hoo Wednesday and it’s my turn to share a technique with you, I decided to show you how to mask. I love this technique, it is very simple but so effective. Masking is the technique of covering a stamped image so other images can be placed over it without them overlapping, giving a fabulous layered effect.

Start off by stamping the images you want to use onto some scrap card, I stamped each image twice and cut out as close to the edge as possible. This is the time consuming bit but once you’ve done it you can keep them and use them over and over again.

Once cut out use a temporary glue on the back, I used the Quickie Glue pen which when applied and left to dry, it becomes repositionable.

I started from the top left hand corner and stamped the two largest flowers from the IBS Daisies set next to each other, I covered them with the masks and stamped the small daisy inbetween the two flowers, slightly overlapping, this image will be now look like it’s in the background.I removed the masks and carried on stamping around the card, covering any stamped image with the mask that I was stamping over, as I’ve shown in the above photo.The little leaf I used is from Little Flowers set, .

Here’s my finished card, I left some white space in the centre and added a sentiment, I also added buttons to some of the flower centres to add a bit of dimension.

You will find a new tutorial every Wednesday over at Inspired by Stamping.

Thank you for joining me, I’ll be back tomorrow with the new Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge
