Stampin’ Up! Butterflies and Flowers Layering Decorative Mask Card for the Happy Inkin” Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a theme of “flowers”  I have so many stamp sets and dies with flowers but thought…lets use the Butterflies and Flowers Mask today.  This was the first time I inked these masks up, and I can tell you, it won’t be the last.  What a fun, quick way to make cards.

The Theme:

Stampin’ Up! Butterflies and Flowers Layering Mask Card:

The Recipe:

Card base: Basic White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Basic Black 4 x 5-1/4

Art piece: Basic White 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

The Details:

  • Place the thin outlined mask on the art piece and with your Blender Brush blend on a light layer of Highland Heather Ink
  • Move the mask around the art piece arranging the mask where you want the flowers to be and continue blending a light layer of Highland Heather Ink
  • When you ae done with the first layer, match up the thicker lines mask on top of the light Highland Heather flower and blend on a darker layer of Highland Heather Ink
  • When you have all the flowers where you want them take the leaf mask and blend some Granny Apple Green leaves by the flowers
  • Run your art piece through the Subtle EF for added dimension

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Many Message stamp set onto Black card stock with Versa Mark Ink
  • Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and then heat set with your Heat Tool
  • Die cut the sentiment with the coordinating Message Die

Putting the Card Together:

  • Attache the art piece to the black mat
  • Wrap a piece of Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon around the card
  • Attach the matted panel to the card front with Dimensionals
