More ideas for mask stamping

Hi again crafters. I hope my post finds you well.

I'm pleased to hear people are receiving their orders - and it's brilliant seeing some of the work you are producing! It's so exciting. 

Today I thought I would share the technique where I used the stamps to add the design inside the stencil. I really like this - and the smaller designs are absolutely perfect to show even in the relatively detailed word stencil.

First, I started with a blank piece of card:


Using the repositionable adhesive, stick the stencil in place


Start to build up your design, this time we are working in the space in the stencil. Take care not to stamp in any of the other stencils - cover them with card if necessary 


I completed my design, and then used my little filler in stamps for any areas that I had missed


I love it when the stencil is removed and the image pops. Doesn't it look cool!


Next, cover the image with the matching mask.


The mask will allow you to work over the image, without any contamination 


I must admit, I preferred it left black and white!! But it was worth showing the alternative way of working :)

Hi Leonie, received the stencils/masks yesterday but need to wait for the stamps as went through CC.
Might be unusual comment to leave but just wanted to say how great the packaging is. Not only eye catching but great for storage. Fit for purpose are the words that come to mind as so many times items are in plastic that has to be cut & discarded. Thankyou x

I am waiting for my Masks and stamps to arrive from CC. Cannot wait to get started using them. Just a suggestion to you, How about a Christmas set maybe, Holly, Noel, Peace, Star, Tree, Xmas even Bauble and the selection of stamps are endless as to what you could use. Hopefully you will have the time in your schedule to design and produce this suggestion and I would defo purchase them and I can see the background colours of reds and green with a splash of gold as well as blues and purples with a splash of silver. Please bring them on.
