Savi Sunday 60 - Embossing with Masks

SAVI Sunday (Stamping & Various Inspirations) 60:  Embossing With Masks

Today I have a great way for you to use our Basic Pattern Decorative Masks.  Normally, crafters think of masks just for sponging color through onto cardstock to have the pattern show through, but this is a fun way to expand your card making. 

Let's take a look at today's project: 

Stampwithlisabrownsavi60

First off.... I LOVE black-n-white cards, don't you?  I keep saying I am going to create a black-n-white series.  Leave me a comment if you would like to see that!

Card Details:

  • Basic White card base cut 4-1/4 x 11 scored and folded at 5-1/2"
  • Basic Black layer cut 3-3/4 x 5" and adhere to card base
  • Basic White top layer is cut 3-5/8 x 4-7/8"
  • Lay Decorative Mask over about half of the white top layer piece and press VersaMark ink over patter
  • Remove mask, cover with Black Embossing power and heat emboss
  • Cut 6-1/2" piece of ribbon and adhere
  • Die cut Love background and detailed Love word (use Adhesive sheets!  Makes life a lot easier on detailed dies)
  • Adhere Love to card with Mini Black Dimensionals
  • Stamp the word YOU with Memento ink
  • Add Black Matte dots

Watch my VIDEO HERE to see how I masked off where I wanted my embossed area to be.

SAVI Sunday 57 - Double Masking

This weeks Savi Sunday VIDEO shows you two easy masking cards, but it is really my 2nd card project below that is the main focus - Double Masking. 

I want to show you what it looks like when you stamp an image, and directly apply ink right over that image.  Its pretty in itself, but wait to you see the Double Masked card. 

PicsArt_05-09-06.05.09

Both cards feature the Elegantly Said Stamp Set, available in a product suite called Simply Elegant

The above card is done in Fresh Freesia and below is Soft Succulent.  

My 2nd project below, notice how the floral image looks like it is sitting on top of the sponged mask background.  But I actually sponged the background First!

Using The New Blender Brushes

Hi there! 

Hope you are having a great day.  I have two card projects for you, featuring the New Blending Brushes.  I am in love with these Brushes and may never use a sponge again for adding color to my projects.  The thousand of bristles are so, so soft.  You ever go into the store and walk past a blanket or robe and they are so soft that you just want to wrap yourself in them?  Well that is how I feel about these brushes.  LOL.  The bristles are soooo soft I can't stop playing with them.

SAVI Sunday - Episode 34 Mirror Stamping

SAVI Sunday 34 - Mirror Stamping

Thank you for joining me for my next Savi Sunday video showing you how to do Mirror Stamping, also known as reverse stamping.  I am highlighting the Dove of Hope stamp set from the bundle available in the 2020 Holiday catalog (2020 August-December mini catalog).  You'll have to forgive my photography this time as I am away from home and my usual process.  :)

PicsArt_10-16-09.10.14

You can see my video HERE to see the easy method I do using the Stamparatus and Silicone craft sheet.  You will stamp the dove on the right onto the Smoky Slate card stock.  Remove the Smoky Slate CS and place your silicone mat into the Stamparatus and stamp the dove.  Now flip over your CS and place into Stampartus and rub over area where you stamped on the silicone mat to transfer the ink.  The video shows this process so it may be easier to understand. 

Card Details

  • Cherry Cobbler card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Smoky Slate CS 4 x 5-1/4
  • Dove and words are inked in Misty Moonlight

Thanks for popping by and don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
