Simple Stamping 101: How to Use the Masking Technique

Love the look of layered cards but don’t want to keep piling on the layers? The Masking Technique is perfect for creating the look of an additional paper layer without more card stock. By stamping over and around a mask (an extra layer of scrap paper), the flowers on this Needle & Thread card create a perfect highlight for a sweet greeting.

Love the Needle & Thread stamp set?

Distinktive stamps, including the Needle & Thread stamp set, are exclusive to Stampin’ Up!, complete with patent pending on the creation process. These photo-realistic style images have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in one step.

There are a few tips & tricks for getting the best possible image from this stamp set.

To get the best image possible, use a Bone Folder to press ink down into the firm foam Classic Stampin Pads, allowing for just the perfect touch of ink to be picked up by the stamp for transferring to card stock. I’ll teach you exactly how to do this in the video tutorial for this February Stamps in the Mail Club project.
