Welcome to week forty three of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop.
This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Rich Razzleberry from the Regals family.
Rich Razzleberry is a gorgeous colour that I simply forget to use! When I do remember to use it I wonder why I don’t use it more often!
I love Fresh Freesia and Rich Razzleberry together so this is my colour combination for this week.
My layering mask card is a super fast and easy card that uses the Loveliest Layers Decorative Masks and blending brushes, inspired by cards shared recently by the Stampin’ Up! CEO, Sara Douglass on her Facebook live. You can watch her video and see her cards here.
The colour combination possibilities with these masks are really endless!
One way to line up the layering masks is to use a Stamparatus, placing the cardstock and the masks right into the top corner of the Stamparatus before inking up the layers – this aligns the images perfectly without having to tape them into place.
Once the mask is firmly in place, use a blending brush to lift ink off an ink pad (use a separate blending brush for each colour) and then gently blend the ink over the mask in a circular motion. You can make the level of colour intensity as light or as dark as you like.
The method Sara and I both used involved taping one side of the masks to your grid paper, using strips of Stampin’ up! Masking Tape or washi tape. This method works really well if you are making more than one card front.
The cardstock layers were die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies before adhering to a Crumb Cake Card base. The “Hello” sentiment is from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set stamped in Memento ink.
Inside the card I used the “friend” sentiment from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set and added some spare masked pieces I cut to fit.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Palmieri – I can’t wait to see what Rachel has made this week!
