January 2020 Paper Pumpkin Subscription Box I'll Bee Yours | Alternative Card with Masking Technique

I loved playing with all the elements the Paper Pumpkin Kit from January 2020. This card uses the stamp set and a section of the leftover paper from the die cut hearts to create a unique look with a technique called masking. I love the simple design on this card. It could easily be recreated in any color combination.

1- Masking Technique: Use a section of the leftover paper from the die cut hearts. Cut out 1 heart from this leftover paper – my section was about 2.25” x 2.25”. When cutting try to make the heart centered. After stamping you will have a slight border around the heart – if you want this border to be bigger than make this section smaller by cutting closer to the heart shaped cut out. This will be our mask.
2- Place the heart shaped mask on top of the 2.5” whisper white square. Make sure it is centered – you can use a little adhesive to hold it down, but don’t add too much you want to remove this mask after stamping.
3- Ink the flower pattern stamp from the kit in Pretty Peacock. Stamp in the center of the 2.5” square over the mask. Apply good pressure. You may want to use a Paper Piercing Mat so you get a nice clear image.
Keep your mask. You can reuse it.
4- Stamp the the tulip in Call Me Clover on the other piece of Whisper White Cardstock. You want to group 3 of them together. Repeat to make a second group.
5- Stamp the 3 little flowers in Calypso Coral next to the tulips. Place the little flower at the top, then rotate it so the little flower is at the bottom.
6- Stamp the greeting in Pretty Peacock ink on the same white cardstock. I used the with love from the heart stamp.
7- Fussy cut all these images. Keep them in their groups.
8- Layer the Call Me Clover flowers behind the Calypso Coral flowers.
9- Add the greeting to the center of the flowers.
10- Add about 25” of Silver Metallic Thread to the back of the flowers. I wrapped it back and forth to create a bow look.
11- Add some dimensionals to the back of the flowers. If you want you shave them down with a pair of scissors. Just cut them so they aren’t quite as tall. This will give it just a little bit of height and dimension.
12- Then add some adhesive (I used liquid glue) to the exposed foam and add it to the left side of the heart.
13- Add to the white card base the Pretty Peacock strip at about 2.25” from the bottom of the card. Make sure the strip is parallel to the bottom of the card. Then add the other two colors.
14- Add the heart image with dimensionals to the right side over the strips.

All done!
