#30DayCardChallenge - Day 3

Day #3!!!
Today I'm creating a card with one of April 2019 Paper Pumpkin stamps. (If you're not familiar with Paper Pumpkin, click HERE to learn more.) This stamp is what Stampin' Up! calls a DistINKtive stamp. Distinktive stamps are photo-realistic images and have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step.

There's a stamp set in the new catalog called 'Healing Hugs' that would also be perfect for this project. I don't have that one yet, but it is on my Wish List! I'm also using an easy technique called 'Masking' that I'll explain below.

To get started, I'm using Flirty Flamingo Cardstock for the base, Highland Heather Cardstock for the layer, and Whisper White Cardstock for the card front. I'm also using Flirty Flamingo Ink, Highland Heather Ink, Mint Macaron Ink, and So Saffron Ink. These are some of my favorite colors!

The first thing I did was create the mask ... I stamped the image on a Post-It Note, making sure to get most of the image on the sticky part, then cut it out …

I chose Highland Heather Ink as my focal color and stamped the image. I then covered the image with the cut out (the sticky part holds it in place).

I stamped over the mask with the other colors, taking care not to overlap …

When I lifted the post-it note, the image is clear and looks like it's in front of the others …

You can also create this card without masking, and the flower colors would overlap. Notice the difference? …

I used the mask over the lower flowers to create more depth without overlapping the colors. You can create multiple masks to make it easier …

Attach the card front to the Highland Heather layer with Snail Adhesive, then attach to the base …

I left the front as is, so I can write a note on the inside …

But you can easily add a sentiment by stamping on a piece of scrap cardstock and cutting it out, then attaching it to another coordinating scrap of cardstock  …

That's it for Card #3!! Are you joining me in this challenge? I sure would love to see your creations! Feel free to post it with a comment below, or you can post it on my Facebook page.
