When Stampin’ Up! added the Masking Paper to our product line, I was super excited! I don’t use it often enough. But when I do, I can’t stop creating and want to try out all the possibilities. Think of it as giant Post It® Notes but with a stronger stick.
So I had a few minutes to play around last week with this Masking Paper and a background stamp I’ve been dying to design with: Pretty Medallion. And today I have two pretty, but easy-to-make greeting cards to share!
I tried sharing these last week, but my two attempts at live broadcasts didn’t work. My apologies to those of you who showed up and hung in there with me through those 30 minutes.
I just showed live on YouTube and on Facebook about an hour ago step-by-step directions for the basics of using Stampin’ Up!’s Masking Paper and how to make these two cards with the Pretty Medallion Stamp Set, the Simply Fabulous Stamp Set, dye-based inks & Blending Brushes, heat embossing, and of course…the Masking Paper. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel or tune into my events on my Facebook Page so you can get updates when I share and go live).
