Card Making Masking Technique

Hello Friends,

Today's card is a back to basics kind of card.  You could probably make this card in about five minutes and yet it is so, so beautiful.  Did I mention that there is stamping whatsoever on this card?  Watch the video below for instructions on making this simple card.


No Stamping Card Making

I didn't use any stamps to make today's card, but I did use 3 die sets.  The first is a die set that should be in every craft room.  It's called the Layering Ovals dies #141706.  You will find yourself reaching for this versatile set over and over again.  The Thank You die #146832 is retiring as of June 2, 2020, and is available While Supplies Last.    The third die set is called Beautiful Butterflies #148536.  I chose 3 tiny little butterfly dies to use as accents on my card but the Beautiful Butterflies die set is jam-packed with all sorts of butterfly dies.

5 Hold on to Hope Card Techniques

Hold on to Hope Stampin' Up!


Hello Friends,

Today's card made with the Hold on to Hope stamp set and the Cross of Hope Dies says it all.  It seemed appropriate for Easter, Passover and these unprecedented times.  I used 5 Card Techniques to make today's card.  Can you guess what they are?


Hold On To Hope Card Techniques

  1. Isaiah 46:4 was Heat Embossed.
  2. The embossed verse resisted the inks that I sponged and rubbed across the face of my card.  Hence, the technique is called Emboss Resist.  Colors from bottom to top are Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, and Balmy Blue.
  3. The cross was die cut with the Cross of Hope Dies and "Hold on to Hope" was die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  4. The stamped vines were highlighted with a White Chalk Pen.  Highlighting dark stamped images is easy with a White Chalk Pen.
  5. The purple ribbon draped over the cross was dyed with my Dark Highland Heather Stampin' Blend.  You can dye a white ribbon to any color you want with Stampin' Blends or inks.



Have a blessed weekend,
