Masking technique with Lovely as a Tree

I have had computer problems for the last few weeks and I was very busy too and I finally have some time tonight to upload a card I made for a Shoe Box Swap I hosted recently. I will post the other cards later this week.

I have seen many cards made with this set and so many of them are gorgeous!!! Here is a link to the gallery on SCS where you can see them. I always like to give credit to the person who inspired me but this time, there are so many people who have made similar cards that I just don't know who to give credit to!! So, thanks to everyone at SCS for your inspiring work and here is how I made my card.

List of supplies needed:

- Lovely as a Tree stamp set (p. 106) and Heard form the Heart (p. 145)

- Baja Breeze and Night of Navy Classic Ink pad (p. 164)

- Papers: Night of navy, Baja Breeze ( p.164) and Shimmery White (p. 166)

- 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch (p.188)

- Sticky note

- Stamping Sponge (p. 193)

- Adhesives

Stamp the sentiment first, in Night of Navy Classic Ink pad at the bottom of the Shimmery White paper ( 4 3/4 by 3 1/2 inches)

Stamp your Lovely as a tree stamp in Night of Navy a little bit to the right of your shimmery White paper.

Stamp your image again onto the paper a little bit to the left but this time, don't ink it up. It will stamp a lighter image but this helps create the illusion of depth.

Your image should look like this

Use your circle punch to create a "moon". Place it wherever you'd like.

Using your stamping sponge, dip it into the Baja Breeze Classic Ink pad. Dab the excess on a scrap sheet first and then sponge the surface you want to colour.

Remove your circle and see the moon appear :) Cool effect isn't it!!

Finish up your card by adhering it to a 5 x 3 3/4 inch Night of Navy cardstock, and adhere that to your card base which is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.

I tried to capture the shimmer from the white paper but it is hard. I have to say it is very cool in real life :)

I need to go, time to go watch 24 !!!! Woohoo!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Monday!!
