At my last in-home class, the stampers got an opportunity to play with Stampin' Up!'s new Decorative Masks. You get two sheets -- either stars and hearts or circles and stripes - for just $2.95 per package. What a fun way to create a unique background. We placed the mask over our Whisper White Card Stock and used a sponge dauber to apply the ink over the mask. Cool, huh? The 8 x 8 masks would also work well to create a background for a scrapbook page. (And with a quick rinse or swipe of a baby wipe, these masks clean up well.)
Here's what the stars and hearts masks look like:
In the above card, we combined the Fabulous Four stamp set with the new In Colors (Mossy Meadow), the 2014-2016 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack, and the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. This card, inspired by Alanna Wharf, was made in a note card size -- 5 x 3 /12.
The other sentiments in the Fabulous Four set are perfect for creating a set of all-occasion note cards. And, that's exactly what we did!
