Hello blogging friends! Today, is the forth day of the JustRite® Papercraft February New Release. We are showcasing a stamp set and a matching die templates set designed by Samantha Walker for
Here is the sweet Easter card that I designed using both the SW-02008 Welcome Spring Clear Stamp Set and JustRite® Custom Dies SW-04950 Nested Cloud and Tag Dies. The stamp set is filled with so many great stamps for Spring and Easter. For the Easter basket full of colorful eggs I did a masking technique and I have a tutorial to share with you on how to do that.
To start I stamped the image of the basket using Rich Cocoa ink on to white cardstock. Then I stamped the image a second time on to post-it-note paper and used a craft knife to cut out the image. I placed the cut out on top of the image--doing this creates a mask and allows you to stamp over an image and create layers. Then start stamping the eggs. I also stamped several of the eggs and cut them out to create masks. *Tip--if you use post-it-notes they have the sticky back so the cut out will stay in place on top of the image. If you don't have post-it-notes use some copy paper and apply a little two way glue on the backside to make the paper a little tacky.
Here you can see I have stamped the eggs several times and I have masks (cutouts) covering most of the eggs. Once you are done with masks and stamping then you can peel all of the little pieces off to reveal the entire image.
Pretty cool! This is the basket of eggs once all of the masks are taken off.
I used several colors of Memento inks to stamp the images and then I colored them in with Copic markers. All the names of the ink and Copic markers are below in the supply list.
I lightly airbrushed around the die cut with the basket using Copic marker B00. For the second layer I stamped the frame from the SW-02008 Welcome Spring Clear Stamp Set using Rose Bud ink and then I used the largest die in the JustRite® Custom Dies SW-04950 Nested Cloud and Tag Dies set to cut/emboss the shape. I also stamped and fussy cut a few more eggs and layered them on the front. I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment with a little flower on to a tag die cut and then added a lavender/silver bow with some Iridescent White Metallic String. I used 3D Foam Squares in between the layers to add a little dimension. For the sparkle I used a Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen. I love the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen pen and how much sparkle it adds to the project!
To finish off the card I stamped and die cut two of the corner pieces and then I added a few pearls.
