Totally Techniques Blog Hop - die cut masking technique

Hi and welcome to July's Totally Techniques blog hop.  We're sharing our take on the die cut masking technique this month. It's a technique that is easy to do and you can have a lot of fun with it.  There's a great tutorial here that will help to get you started or you can follow the simple instructions below.

1. Using removable note sheets or removable 'sticky' tabs cut out the die cut of your choice.  I used the Stampin' Up! Large Letter dies.

2. Position the die cut pieces on your card layer making sure that they are secure, but still removable.

3. Spritz, stamp, smudge, sponge or whatever ink over the masks to build your design.  I used sponges, stamps Timeless Textures and Touches of Texture.  Colours used were Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky and Rose Red.

4. You can add extras like glitter dots with a fine tip glue pen at this stage, but before removing the masks make sure everything is dry so as not to smudge any glue or ink.  

5. Remove the masks to reveal the clean letters in the original card stock colour.  

As the Meerkats would say 'Simples'!!

To finish my card I add flowers which were stamped using the Touches of Texture smallest flower and then punched with the Sprinkles punch, an addition to my sentiment from Lovely Inside and Out and some additional flowers.  The design is matted onto Crumb Cake card which has been smudged around the edges with the same colour ink and then a Soft Sky card base.
