Masking Technique with Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You

The masking technique is one of the first I learned when I began rubber stamping.  I used to make Button Bear hold a present or a flower.  I also made lots of birthday cards with him wearing a cute birthday hat using the masking technique.

The masking technique is very simple.  Follow these quick steps for success every time:

  1. Stamp the image that will be “masked” on a sticky note with some of the image on the sticky part of the note
  2. Cut out the image leaving a small border (between 1/16″ and 1/8″)
  3. To stamp over an image:
    1. Stamp the image on the card
    2. Place the sticky note over the stamped image
    3. Stamp onto the card so that the ink goes on the sticky note and not the card
  4. To create a foreground image:
    1. Stamp the foreground image on the card (for example a birthday hat)
    2. Place the sticky note over the stamped image
    3. Stamp onto the card and sticky note with the background image (for example Button Bear)
