Tutorial Tuesday-Masking Technique

For this week’s tutorial I am going to show you just how easy masking is to do. Believe it or not, this was a technique I tried to avoid for a very, very long time, because I didn’t think I could master it. When I bought this Hero Arts stamp set I saw many, many cupcakes together, so I finally learned to mask. Have fun with your masking project.


Black stamp pad

Assortment of stamps

Post-It Notes

Stamp two, or more images side-by-side. Start with the image considered to be in the front row, or the front of the images that you are stamping. Repeat stamping each image onto the Post-It note so that the top of your image has sticky on the back.


Next, cut out the images you stamped onto the Post-It note and stick them over top of the images that you stamped. This will protect your images on the next step. As in this photo, stamp your image exactly where you would like to stamp to go. Your small images that were stamped out earlier are totally protected by the Post-it note.


Continue to stamp out the images you would like to use. If you would like a third layer of cupcakes, you would just repeat stamping cupcakes onto the Post-It note and cover up the second row of cupcakes, and then stamp out a third row.


Finished card.
