Stretch Your Supplies: Masking with Rose Wonder Framelits Die Cuts

LovenStamps: Use the Rose Wonder Thinlits die cuts as a mask for sponging - technique idea using Stampin' Up! supplies

An Ode to the Rose Garden Framelits.  How I love thee?  Let me count the ways… masking, sponging, decorative elements, paper piecing… Seriously, this is a die cut bundle with so many artistic possibilities! 

The Rose Wonder treat bag above uses the die cut rose as a mask for sponging.  First cut the rose and leaf shape from heavy card stock (or the backing tag board that comes with Designer Series Paper).  Lay it on your project and apply the ink through the die cut.

Here are some tips for sponging through the die cut to create this pretty powdery effect:

  • Use a small chunk of sponge – about 1/8 of a Stamping Sponge (101610).
  • When working with a detailed die cut mask, try pouncing the sponge onto the card stock rather than swiping.  Color will apply more evenly with less chance of shifting the die cut mask. 
  • Apply color in layers – don’t expect to achieve the desired color in one swipe.  Color gradients will be smoother when applied in several strokes.

LovenStamps: Use the Rose Wonder Thinlits die cuts as a mask for sponging - technique idea, add Wink of Stella to wooden die cuts

The frosting on the cake of this project is the gold touches – check out all the ways I’ve incorporated gold elements:

  • Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush applied to the wooden die cut
  • Gold Foil Doilies layered behind the tag
  • Gold glitter (again, Wink of Stella) decorating the wooden clothespin
  • Gold thread in the Gold Baker’s Twine

Combine all that with a strong gorgeous color, and you can’t go wrong!  Three cheers for Watermelon Wonder!
