Hello everyone! We have another guest designer today!
I have been a Pamela
fan ever since I found her on Moxie Fab World
when she was a winner to a challenge. I am amazed by how much effort she puts in to achieve a clean look, over and over. There are always clever uses of products as well. I was on Neat and Tangled
's team with her and am so happy for her stamp design debut
with them! Such talent! Now, take it away, Pamela!
Masking with Diecuts
Hello everyone! This is Pamela and I'm so excited to be guest designing for Waffle Flower
's August release! I'm using the new Surface - Tag Die - Santa Add-On die
and I will be doing a lot of masking for a simple, one layer card.
I first die cut everything on some masking paper. I first adhered the buckle negative onto my card base and I will be blending some yellow ink onto my card base.
I then adhered the buckle's positive mask directly onto the yellow and discarded the buckle's negative mask. Then it was time for me to adhere the belt's negative mask and blended some black ink.
After, I adhered the belt's positive mask and discarded the negative mask. I adhered the bottom part of the beard mask and blended the remaining in red.
It's time to rip off all those masks and post-it notes! I'm now left with some simple shapes that suggests Santa Claus! I inked up the "HO HO HO" sentiment from A Homemade Christmas
and stamped it on the bottom to finish the card off.
Here's the complete card! I love how flat and mail-friendly this card is! Of course you could always die cut it in coloured cardstock but this masking/blending/planning process was so fun!
Here's a close up of the card. I'm in love with those vibrant colours!
Thank you Nina
for inviting me to guest design with her amazing stamps and dies!
