Without further ado, Piyu....


Hello friends!
Welcome to my third post as a Leading lady for October. Today I am sharing 3 cards made using In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez stamp set and masking technique.I love "Floral" stamps and this stamp set is so versatile. Not just the flowers and leaves but the sentiments too are a must have.

So here is my first card-

I started by stamping the sentiments at the center of  watercolor cardstock.

Then I stamped the flowers and leaves. I used masking to stamp the images as I wanted them to overlap. I  then colored them using Zig markers.

Then I die cut the card panel using largest scalloped rectangle from the Essentials: Audrey Cutaways . I adhered it on a black colored card panel to give a thin black border and then finally adhered it to white cardstock.

For my second card, I did a lot of masking and stamping again with the same flowers and leaves.

 I colored these with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut the border and adhered a black cardstock strip at the back to make the images pop.

 Finally I stamped the sentiment from Happy Birthday to You stamp set and die cut it with coordinating Happy Birthday to You cutaways.

For y third card, I masked the center with a rectangle and stamped the flowers and leaves around it.

I colored the images with copic markers.
I added the sentiment from the Wish Big with Evelin T Designs stamp set.

Finally I added a border to the center rectangle with black gel pen.

I hope you liked these cards using masking technique.  I am overwhelmed with all the love received on my previous posts. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Do leave me a comment on this post too and also on the leading lady post on my blog here for a chance to win 30$ Gift card.
