Masking Cards...

My Hostess Club, also known as the Technique Lovers Club (TLC) took on masking as our technique for June. Here are the cards we made, all masking, all totally different techniques!

This one was so easy, and works out great for guys, especially with Father's Day being just around the corner. We cut the landscape on scrap paper, and used it to mask while sponging the scene. The cat tails are pieces of Choc Chip CS punched with the Horizontal Slot and stuck on with rolled Glue Dots.

This was was LOTS of fun!!! We punched various size circles out of scrap paper, then layer it over our white CS. Then we used the Stampin Around Wheels over the whole thing for the black flowers. Circles were then sponged, mask removed, and Voila! Love this technique! This is my farewell to Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point! Adios!

This is one I call Painter's Mask. We used SU Glossy White CS, and layered torn painters tape on the front. Then we sponged in the center with Perfect Plum, stamped these flowers from Embrace Life in Basic Black. Then remove your tape carefully, stamp sentiment from Heard From The Heart in Basic Black, and mist lightly with sealant. This is SO pretty IRL, the picture won't catch the shiny paper, or depth of the sponging.

And these are my little girls, Chloe and Tara, who would not let me not include them, and insisted I put this pic on my blog! Anything to make them smile. Enjoy!
