CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Masking

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 12 of us highlighting the Masking Technique as shown on page 15 in the 2011 Autumn/Winter Idea Book!  Masking is when you use a piece of scrap paper to cover an image (or part of an image) so you can stamp around the original image.  Click here to watch a video that explains and shows masking in full detail.

This blog hop is a circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you are coming from Bethany’s Blog, you are on the right track!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, Lagoon ink, Sunkiss Yellow ink, Blush ink, rubber brayerBaby Pink reinker, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, Ribbon Rounds – Blush Collection, White Daisy Cardstock, DCWV Alphabet Stickers, Studio18 Rhinestone Stickers, and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.  Layout is loosely based on a March 2008 Page Map sketch.

I used the Cricut to cut an image for my masking.  I used a brayer to apply ink over the mask to create my background.  Then, I misted with a spray pen filled with water, Baby Pink reinker, and Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint to add to my final background.  The accent flowers are scraps from the mask I used and they are inked with Sunkiss Yellow, Blush, and Lagoon.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue on to Judy’s Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

Layouts from Basic Grey Kit

Spring has Sprung:

Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit, 3D foam tape, Prima Inspiring Creativity flowers, and KaiserCraft Pearls.
Fussy & Fancy Challenge #43 – Use a Lot (pearls!)


Heaven Sent:
Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit and KaiserCraft Pearls.


Bloom & Grow:
Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

These pages are all from the same kit and that’s all you get but I do have lots of diecuts, rubons, and chipboard left over to make more pages or cards.  For me it was a worthwhile splurge because it made some quick, easy, and cute pages.

Another 10 Year Album

When I found out the theme for the August Scrap Our Stash Challenge was to “re-do” something I thought I was in trouble.  I am not one to go back and redo any of my layouts.  I’m just glad they got done in the first place!  Plus, it’s interesting to see how my scrapping style has changed over the years.  It’s also funny to hear compliments for some of the layouts that I don’t really care for; we all have different tastes.  So back to the challenge….my second child turned 10 this year and this ended up to be the perfect opportunity to get something completed in a timely manner.  For my first, I had created a 10-Years of You album that featured a photo of her each of her 10 years.  So I decided to “redo” that same project for my second 10-year-old.  Let me tell you it was much easier the second time around!  I simply used the same album and layouts, choosing different papers and embellishments to suit a different personality.  The only trouble I had was that I stamped all the numbers and did the album backwards and when it came to doing the title it did not match my front cover paper.  Not a big deal to switch it up and I even used a number 3 in place of a the letter E.  The cover paper did just happen to have a nice lace/ribbon border that looked great on the front cover.  Here is the outcome:


Supplies used: CTMH All-Sorts Mini Album, DCWV patterned papers (stack), CTMH White Daisy Grosgrain Ribbon, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Mark Richards Crystal Stickers, EK Success Precious Finds Adhesive Gems, Colorbok Gems Adhesive Accents, Miss Elizabeth Foam Letter Stickers, Basic Grey Bling It, and rhinestone border and ribbon from my stash.

Teddy Bears in Bed

Supplies used: Daisy D’s paper, Diecuts With a View alphabet stickers, Kaiser orange rhinestones, and random brads from my stash.

Layout Challenge: #118 of 210.

These are a fun food for the kids to make.  The are made by simply assembling graham crackers, large marshmellows (cut in half), teddy graham bears, and fruit rollups.  As far s the layout, the pinwheels are cut out of the patterned paper.  I often do this to create my own coordinating embellishments by cutting sections out and adding a few extra touches.  With the pinwheels I added brads to the centers.  If I had to do over again I would make the rhinestones around the large pinwheel straight down instead of trying to make it curved.  I used Sketch #19 from Scrap-A-Little.
