Merry Christmas Masking

I have created my own mask by die cutting using the Fancy Labels Dies #2 with copy paper. I have used copy paper as this makes a thin layer so when stamping it stamps close to the edge of the mask straight onto the cardstock.
I have used an array of blue inks and silver pigment ink for stamping the images from Build a stocking stampset.
To make the die cut edge a little more defined I have used the lightest blue ink with a blending tool and blended the blue with a very light tough only.
I lifted the mask off to reveal the stamped image.  You will find this method can also be easily used as a 1 layer card option as well.
I have used a step up version by layering the stamped card stock on another white layer with foam mount tape which is then matted onto a black cardstock base.
I have stamped the image from Festive Greetings with Onyx Black Versafine Ink.
To finish embellishing the card I have added some silver star sequins and glossy accents to the stampset silver stars.

Christmas Cards – New Arrival Stampsets

Hi fellow paper crafters Jo here, today I have made some cards using all New Arrival stampsets  from Inspired By Stamping.
To create my own background I have repetitive stamped the Poinsettias on Naturals Ivory Cardstock. I have used Crumb Cake Ink as it is a light enough ink without taking away the focus of the centre Poinsettia.  The paper used for all cards is from Teresa Collins ‘Tinsel and Company’. To stamp I used Momento Luxe Inks pear tart for the leaves and Rhubarb stalk for the sentiment. To cut the bottom border I have used Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border #1 Die. 
For the poinsettia  I have heat embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum card stock. The Centre Panel has been cut out with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo #2.
 Christmas Wreath

For the base I have used the star stamp from the Build a Stocking set with Gold & Silver Encore Ink.
The Centre Panel has been cut out with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo #2. I have inked using my Ranger mini ink tool with Peeled Paint & Peacock feathers.  Washie tape has been placed along the centre of the card along with gold sequins. For the bow I used a Satin Ribbon close to the peacock feathers ink as possible.
