How to Mask , Unicorn Greeting Card

Needing a greeting card to send to a friend I decided to make one and share How to Mask , Unicorn Greeting Card. This card will also be entered into a couple of challenges I found online.

How to Mask , Unicorn Greeting Card

Recently while out shopping I found the Hampton Art Mama Elephant Clear Stamp & Die Set-Over the Rainbow Which features Unipegs, Or Flying Unicorns. This set was so cute that I couldn’t pass it up!

Knowing that I wanted to keep this card simple and cute I decided to go with simple stamping and masking. The concept of masking is to stamp the image on a text weight piece of paper and place that over the image you want to be in the front.

To make a mask I do the following, I stamp the image on text weight paper, or a sticky note. I cut out the image and then on the backside I use Zig Two Way Glue. Let the glue air dry for a minute. This then turns the paper into a temporary sticky mask that will stay in place. Repeat these steps for all of the stamps that you want to mask on your project.

Once all of the masks are created it is time to create the card. Begin with loading the MISTI with the UniPeg, Rainbow Clouds and Hello Stamps. Ink with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven, then stamp on white cardstock that has been cut at 4.20 in. x 5.45 in.

Place the masks for the Unipeg and Rainbow Clouds over the images. Stamp DOTS Stiched Clouds over the Unipeg and Rainbow Clouds. Place masks over the clouds.

Using the Ranger Blending tool and the Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass blend on the card a background to represent sky and clouds.

Remove the masks when the background has been completed to satisfaction.

Color the Unipeg, clouds and Rainbow with Chameleon Pens.

Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card

This project has a lot in it today. A Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card.

Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card

In the past week I have become a member of two design teams. With this project I’m showing how to use items that meet both of the design team requirements.

The first design team I want to tell you about is the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog (aka FCCB).

Being a part of this blog will challenge me to use my Cricut more often in projects. My biggest hope is that I’ll learn more techniques on how to use my Cricut and become a better user of this device. Hopefully this will benefit you as my audience as well.

The second team I want to tell you about is Calico Collage.

The designer Norella puts together beautiful collage sheets for the public to purchase and use. Looking through her designs I knew that these were a perfect fit for me to use in my art creations. My hope is that you will enjoy seeing these images and will be inspired by what you see.

For today’s project for the FCCB the challenge was to use something new. Since I’m new to the Calico Collage team I chose one of her Dashing Men images for this project paired with the Circut cut file: Home Decor Frame M3C018.

Here is a video of how the card was made.

This was a fun card to make, that helped me use things I had on hand. Making this card also made me think about my Cricut Cut files a little differently. I’m looking at the files in new ways to figure out how I can use these in more of my projects instead of every once and a while.
