Fall Pumpkins and Masking Tutorial



I created this card for a swap with my group of demonstrators. I used the Autumn Harvest stamp set. I used very vanilla and chocolate chip card stock. I used chocolate chip and tangerine tango ink pads. I used apricot appeal, always artichoke, old olive, mellow moss, and barely banana markers. I also used the blender pen. This is also my very first tutorial!!! This is a masking tutorial!! It is quick and simple and does not require a lot of extras! It adds a wonderful element to any stamped project!! I am so excited to be able share and to do this with the help of my family, Gaylyn (The Daily Ink) and Georgia!!!



To create the main image I had to use the masking technique. First I stamped the smaller pumpkin and then the gourd onto a piece of scratch paper. I cut them out.


Then I took my card stock and stamped the two images a little bit apart. I used the cut outs and placed them on top. I then stamped the larger pumpkin in the middle.



I then colored in the images with my markers and blender pen. I tied the chocolate chip 5/8 grosgrain ribbon to the corner. I also used my scallop punch on the chocolate chip strip across the card.



Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
