Video: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Pre-Masked Bold Backgrounds

by Lydia Evans

Hello everyone! A very happy Friday to you! It’s Lydia here. Today I will be sharing a technique that allows you to have a bold background as well as stamping on a one layer card.

To start, I cut a number of masks using Indoor Garden Die Set and sticky notes. Once I had created enough, I added these into position on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock. You could even use this technique for just stamping backgrounds, as it would help you position your stamping without committing to any stamping first. I then stamped over the large background image from Gradient Stripes Stamp Set using Permanent Black Ink.

Once the background was stamped, I could then remove the masks and stamp the corresponding images (using Industrial Diamond Ink) from the Indoor Garden Stamp Set into the blank space left. For the leaves and cactus, I used a mix of Bamboo, Parrot, Olive and Moss Inks, Almond Butter Ink for the soil and Sea Glass and Ocean Waves Inks for the pots and water.

I finished the card off simply by using a sentiment from Potted Plants Stamp Set heat embossed in Pure White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Jet Black Cardstock.

Watch the step-by-step video below or over on YouTube:

Love your card and this stamp set Lydia This is such a fun technique! You could try using contact paper instead, it’s so easy to die cut and re position and usually you can reuse your masks a couple of times

Quite a bit of work but the result is stunning. Love that you used the black in the background although it’s very dark, the plants are still or just because, stand out. Thank you so much for showing.
