Reusable Masks and Vellum Shadow Inking

Good morning! Dropping by this morning to share a few cards I made with the current Unity Stamp Company Sentiment Kit - Abundant Blessings! One of the kits I love most at Unity are the sentiment kits - they are awesome on their own like these cards, but the sentiments are great to use along with all your other Unity sets, and I find they are so helpful to stretch my stamp images! 

Here is a video showing how I put these cards together using distress inking, masking, and vellum - as well as a tip to make your masks last a little longer than one card (which is nice on one so intricate to cut out!):

And here is the card I showed being made in the video using Spun Sugar and Lipstick Distress Inks:

Love the softness that the vellum adds!

And then this color combo is Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough:

Machine stitching the vellum is an easy way to attach it with no adhesive showing.

Next up is Tumbled Glass and Broken China:

See what I mean about these gorgeous sentiments?

And finally, another one with the same color combo as the first. I actually created this one first before the video - to make sure my idea actually worked! Haha!

You may notice that I was able to use one sheet of vellum to create these - and the flowers are all in a different corner of the cards. And easy way to create a set but make sure they are each slightly different!

And the three colors all together again. Which is your favorite?

  1. Beautiful cards and the image is gorgeous. Will try and find the stamp in Sweden.

    Have a lovely day/Gunilla

  2. Very beautiful card. For me one negative it's not clear enough to see actually what you are doing with the masking and velum. I feel your video is sped up too fast.. otherwise it's a stunning stamp and cards. Thank you.

  3. Gorgeous cards! I love the white with just a touch of color. And, what a great tip to cover the mask with tape - I'll give that a try.

  4. The blog are the best that is extremely useful to keep.
    I can share the ideas of the future as this is really what I was looking for,
    I am very comfortable and pleased to come here. Thank you very much.
