A Two Fer

I had a small moment to craft last night... (I've got a sickie toddler at home) and decided to make a card for two challenges that caught my eye. The Friday Mashup and Retro Sketches, which is a new one to me. Here's my card:

Paper: Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Black
Stamps: Hello Doily, Fabulous Florets, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Tools: Decorative Label Punch
Accessories: Masking Tape, Vintage Brads, Mini Stars (from stash)
So, over the weekend I was perusing the web and came across a Blogger who said she used the "masking tape technique". I had no idea what that was, so I did a little Google search. There were many great ideas, but I decided to ink up a stamp and then use masking tape to transfer the image to the sticky side and tape it down to a sheet of whisper white.

Before gluing it down to my card base, I sponged it with Raspberry Ripple and stamped some of the floral images from Fabulous Florets in the same colour. I added a fussy-cut flower with a Vintage Brad a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Hope you like my card... why don't you play along with the challenges too?! They're tons of fun and get your creative juices flowing!

Until next time, stay crafty!


  1. Hi Steph,
    I've always loved the Hello Doily stamp and really like the way you've used it for this card along with the Fabulous Florets (another of my favourite sets).

  2. Wow, this is beautiful, and it matches the sketch perfectly! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  3. Hi Stephanie, I have not heard of this technique. Your card looks lovely so I just might have to give it a try. I am enjoying learning lots of great techniques & tips from you.

  4. OK - Love it! The colours are gorgeous and that technique looks fabulous... must try that :) Thanks for sharing with us at The Friday Mashup this week!

  5. Hi Steph. Love your cards. You have a great interpretive style. Hello Doily has barely been inked in my stamp room, but this encourages me to get it out again. TFS.

  6. Great way to use that floral stamp set - the solid silhouette looks really striking behind the fussy cut flower with the antique brad! Thanks for playing along with the Friday Mashup this week!

  7. I hope your little one is feeling better... This came out so cute. I love what you did with the sketch. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup.
