Good Morning and welcome to another Stamping Techniques to Try International Blog Hop! This month we are sharing easy ways to use Masking (or Painter’s) Tape in our stamping.
Masking Tape Technique
There are lots of ways you can use Masking Tape in your stamping and cardmaking. Now Masking Tape is also known as Painter’s Tape in other countries so I hope that clears any confusion. I love showing stamping friends how you can you everyday products like masking tape in their craft projects. It’s so much fun using Masking Tape and there’s a few different techniques you can do too!
Today I’ve created this card for you …
It was lots of fun creating the Northern Lights with Masking Tape. Maybe a little messy too as I could only find Masking Tape 5mm (3/8″) wide! I must say I’ve never seen masking tape that thin before but it did work a treat for my technique today.
How did she do that?
- tear off a length of masking tape approximately 8-10cm long (that’s about 3 1/4″ to 4″)
- then press lightly onto ink pad
- then press onto cardstock and rub over the back of the tape lightly – this transfers the ink to your card
- repeat using different colours as desired
- Stamp mountains from Waterfront Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to create your ‘scene’
It’s really quite that simple. You just need to play with your colours until you get the look you are after. The colours I used were Pool Party, Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise. Overlap some of your colours to create purples and darker blues.
I then cut my scene with the Layering Ovals and Layered it on a Pool Party Scalloped Oval. The sentiment is purely just the ‘wonderful’ from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set which is a new set coming in the Annual Catalogue starting 1st June. I also used my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker to flick some colour on my Shimmery White Card base. My card is finished off with the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon.
Let’s go hopping …
I do hope you like what I’ve created for you today and that you do enjoy seeing what the Stamping Techniques to Try Design Team have created for you this month.
