Team Tuesday with Stephanie - Stencil Masking

Today I'm sharing some cards using my Memory MISTI and products from Gina K. Designs.

But first ... drum roll ... the winner of the $50 My Sweet Petunia Gift Certificate from the My Sweet Petunia and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop is ... Tanya Terrones with this comment

Great masculine feel for the card. I like the texture stamps.

Here is the first one featuring a masked stencil technique

I started by cutting one of the Ovals from Gina K. Designs Oval Dies using Gina K. Designs Masking Magic, which has the perfect thickness and adhesive to make this technique flawless.  I find my Memory MISTI to be perfect for techniques like this one.

Next I adhered the mask to my my stone cardstock and then attached the Gina K. Designs Water Droplets Stencil using Pixie Spray (seriously this stuff is magic for stencils).

Next, I pulled out my Life Changing Blender Brush and three shades of Gina K. Designs Dye Ink - Blue Denim, Tranquil Teal & Turquoise Sea

I randomly applied the colors (I just used the same brush for all three) until I got the depth I wanted, then I removed the stencil and then removed the mask.

One more little trick with my MISTI ... I like to use the lines on the mouse pad to help me line-up embellishments like these gorgeous Love from Lizi Peel Off stickers that I added to finish the card.  I lined the largest one on the left line of the black ... the smallest on the right side of the block ... and then positioned the middle side between the two.

The sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Have Faith Stamp Set stamped in Blue Denim Ink.

I re-used the same Masking Magic Oval for my second card.  It features the same technique, but this time I used Glitter Glitz Gel instead of ink.

Here was the look after removing both the stencil and the mask (I just used the blade of my craft knife to pry it up).  I combined Turquoise Sea and Grass Green Glitz Glitter gels, overlapping them on the corners using the Gina K. Designs Lovely Lace Stencil.

Seriously ... doesn't that gorgeous sparkle make you happy?  Stamped another sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Have Faith Stamp Set in the masked area.

I hope today's tutorial gave you some masking ideas ... I can't wait to see what you create.
