Dots & Stripes decorative masks card collection

If you’ll remember, I posted these fun cards using the Stampin’ Up! Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks.  Well, it’s time for the drawing for the free mask giveaway!

I used primaryschoolict.com, typed in all of the names of those who posted comments to the original post HERE and the program randomly generates a winner.  I’m not tech savvy enough to have video taped the fun spinning wheel of names, but I could do a screen capture once it landed on the winner.  And even though your name might not show up in the list, I guarantee it was there!  (It doesn’t show all of the names on the screen.)

So without further ado, the winner is:

Mask Winner

Congratulations, Heather!  Please email me the words “I won!” and I’ll be sure to deliver your Decorative Masks to you!

Thank you all for playing!  I promise to do more of these giveaways really soon – it’s so fun to get a little something free in the mail, isn’t it?!

Hey There and Beach House Washi Tape

So Sweet of You

I had so much fun making THIS CARD with the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape that I decided to try a different shape with a different package of washi – this time Hearts Framelits and Beach House Wash Tape.

  • You’ll find the instructions to create this fun Washi Tape image in my previous post HERE.  In fact, I used the exact same measurements for the star and heart images.
  • Color scheme for Beach House Washi Tape is Real Red, Crushed Curry and Pool Party – yum!
  • You’ll notice the pretty hear border at the top – it’s made with the brand new Hearts Border Punch with a piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock behind.
  • The “So Sweet” sentiment is from Hello There stamp set and is stamped in VersaMark Ink on Real Red Cardstock, then heat embossed using White Embossing Powder and Heat Tool.  After I was finished with those steps, I used the Circle Framelits to cut it out.
  • Hands down – my favorite ribbon in the new catalog is the 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon, here in Pool Party.  The colors are gorgeous and it ties like a dream.  If you’d like to receive a 2-yd. share of each of the 12 colors of Cotton Ribbon, why not sign up for a Ribbon Share – you needn’t purchase full spools of all the colors this way.  Check out the details of my Ribbon Shares HERE.

So Sweet of You closeup

To make this card I used two different Framelits sets with my Big Shot.  Be sure to get your Big Shot this month and receive a FREE stamp and Framelit bundle; details can be found HERE.

Don’t Forget!

Place a qualifying order with me, either online or by contacting me, and you can receive FREE card kits!  Here’s the hostess code for my August classes – please use TZUYZQP2 when checking out to receive August Stamp Shoppe and/or Cards & Coffee card kits FREE.

Fun with Stampin’ Up! Decorative Masks

Dots & Stripes decorative masks card collection

YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A FREE GIFT – READ ON!

Hubby was away all day today, and I needed a break from packing to move, so I decided to play with the new Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks by Stampin’ Up!  If you haven’t noticed them yet, they’re on page 205 in the 2014-15 Annual Catalog.  There are two sets – Hearts & Stars and the ones I chose to use, Dots & Stripes.

There are several ways to apply ink to the Masks.  For my cards today, I chose to fill several Stampin’ Spritzers with rubbing alcohol and Ink Refills.  It takes quite a few drops of reinker – just add more if your color isn’t as vibrant as you’d like.  Then simply use your spritzers to add color to your cardstock.

I took pictures of the steps along the way so that I could explain how I achieved the variegated colors.

First, I laid down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper.  Next came a piece of 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock.  Then using my grid paper to line everything up, I laid on my Decorative Mask.  You’ll see I have my Stampin’ Spritzers already filled and ready.  I’ve used Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Night of Navy on my first card then Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo on the other three.

Mask 1

I started by spritzing on Daffodil Delight over the first two rows of the Decorative Mask.  Give a firm push all the way down and keep the spritzer moving from left to right.

Mask 2

Next I spritzed on Old Olive, trying to get a bit on the second row of the Daffodil Delight and also covering a row or two of the remaining dots.

Mask 3

The last spritzing, I used the Night of Navy spritzer to spray a bit into the Olive and the final row of dots.

 

Decorative Mask dots and stripes 5

Pick it up carefully after you’ve done all your spritzing so the ink on the mask doesn’t run off onto your cardstock.

And here’s the finished product!  I loved the background so much that I simply added a sentiment and no embellishments.  The skinny black border helped the colors pop out.  “Hello There” sentiment is from the Hello There stamp set.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes blue

Next I tried Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo with a sentiment from Geometrical.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes 4

Then I got the idea to spritz at a diagonal!  Oh, this is so much fun and addicting!  Here I used a sentiment from Fabulous Four stamp set.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes 3

And finally, rather than washing off my mask, I set a piece of Whisper White cardstock on top of the mask to soak up the excess ink and got the reverse design.  I think this is actually my favorite!  Sentiment is from Lots of Thanks stamp set.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes 2

To clean off the mask, I just ran it under warm water and blotted it dry with an old towel.  I can’t wait to use all of the other masks now!  So fun, quick and easy – and WOW!

Leave me a comment and let me know which card you like best!  If there are at least 5 comments, I’ll randomly choose one to win a FREE Dots & Stripes Decorative Mask set!  Customers only, please – no demonstrators!  The winner will be chosen on Thursday, August 7th, and posted on my website, so check back to see if you’ve won!
