Thanks for supporting my small business. I appreciate every single order!!
Today I’m using the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks for my project, and I have step by step instructions for you!
Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks
This set of masks has six different patterns. There are three with flowers and butterflies that layer together, and three that have pretty background patterns. I used the one in the top left, the bottom center and the bottom right for today’s card.
First, I took a quarter sheet of Basic White Cardstock and secured it with masking tape to my work surface. Be sure to reduce the tackiness of the tape before putting it on your cardstock. I knew I would cut my panel and didn’t need the edges, so I didn’t worry about this.
Next, secure the stencil over your white cardstock. I used the larger set of flowers. You can see them in the very bottom right of the picture above. I used my blending brushes to gently add Pale Papaya ink to the two larger flowers and Flirty Flamingo to the two smaller ones. Because these are similar colors, I didn’t worry about covering up the larger flowers. I thought it was okay for the colors to blend a little. Remove the mask.
I turned the mask around to line up the detailed flowers on the other end. It’s easiest to line this up by looking at the two smaller flowers. I secured this and used my Blending Brushes to add the same colors to the same flowers – Pale Papaya on the larger flowers and Flirty Flamingo on the smaller flowers. Again, I didn’t worry about overlapping color. Remove the mask.
Using the other mask with flowers and leaves, I lined the leaves up with my flowers. Don’t look at the two cut out flowers. They are flowers for other projects. Just look through the mask and you’ll see where the leaves go. Since this is a totally different color, I did NOT want this color to blend, so I used a piece of scrap paper and bits of the tape to cover any areas that I thought I might accidently hit. I learned this by experience. You can see in my photo below that I hit my flower with green ink. I actually had to start over. Use your Blending Brushes to add Pear Pizzazz ink to the leaves. Remove mask.
The Finished Product
I cut out my flowers using a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies set. But I had so much fun with the masks that I decided to add the vines to a background piece. I used the vine stencil and Pear Pizzazz ink to add interest to the Pear Pizzazz panel. I also used the same stencil used for the leaves to add a flower to the inside of my card.
I finished off this card with words from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set, a Pale Papaya bow and Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with the Flirty Flamingo Blends.

This week the FAB stampers play with colouring. As crafters, we play with colour every time we craft, but there are so many ways to craft it is hard to find time for all of them. Today we play with colouring, while we play with colour, using the In The Moment stamp set!
The In The Moment stamp set has some wonderful line images that are perfect for colouring. It features strong women, and reminds us to take care of ourselves, while we take care of others. A message many of us need to hear from time to time.
I stamped the image with Memento Black Ink, and used the Watercolour Pencils to colour the image. I then coloured over the pencil colouring with a Blender Pen. This smooths out the colouring, and diminishes the ‘pencil crayon lines’, giving a smooth coloured look. The backdrop is Basic Grey cardstock, embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder, and I used White Frayed Ribbon wrapped around the bottom of my card to border my sentiment.
The image on this card was coloured the same way as the first one, using Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pens. I cut the image and a scalloped frame using the Layering Circles Dies. The sentiment and frame are punched with the Everyday Label Punch. The backdrop on this card is some of the 2021-2023 6 x 6 In Colour Designer Series Paper. I used Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon and Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to embellish the card.
