One Stamp – Three Cards, Using Masking Technique to Create Focal Points

by Meetu Aggarwal

Hello,

Today, I have created three birthday cards using one stamp from Mudra – Birthday 4×4 . This stamp from Mudra is really versatile and has lots of images and sentiments which can be used in many different ways.

For each of my card, I have used the highlight technique, where I have masked off the focal points and used vibrant colours to stamp small images to cover the card.

Card 1: Single Masking

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. I took a piece of A2 size cardstock, and stamped the balloon image randomly using different shades of Mai inks.
  2. Once the inks dried, I then masked off the stamped cardstock, leaving only a rectangle in the centre.
  3. I then applied a thick coat of White Pigment Ink to lighten the unmasked area, this kind of created a focal point on the card. I then trimmed this cardstock piece to the size 5” x 3 ¾”.
  4. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and stuck the cardstock to a standard A2 size card base.

Card 2: Double Masking

  1. I took a piece of A2 size cardstock, and masked off a rectangle in the centre, and then stamped the star image all around in different ink colours.
  2. Once the images dried, I then removed the rectangle mask from the centre and covered the outer area with mask this time.
  3. Using different shades of Distress oxide inks, I then inked the rectangle area in Rainbow order, this created a focal point on my card this time.
  4. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and stuck the cardstock to a standard A2 size card base.

Card 3:

  1. I took a piece of A2 size cardstock, and masked off the base reaving a rectangle in the centre. I inked this rectangle area with distress oxide ink.
  2. Next, I removed the mask and stamped the buntings’ image in different colours, and also the sentiment.
  3. Lastly, I attached this inked panel to another inked cardstock and finally to a standard A2 size card base.

Hope you all have liked my cards today and thank you for stopping by.

Happy Crafting,

Meetu
