Stamping With Friends Masking Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Masking Technique Blog Hop as our Design Team members showcase projects using a variety of masking techniques. Masking is a wonderful way to help take your projects to the next level. 
For my card design today, I chose to create a vintage style Anniversary card using the Wonderful World stamp set from the Wonderful World Bundle, which is an exclusive Sale-a-bration product you can earn free with a qualifying order. I love the images in this stamp set and I thought they would be perfect for the design for my masking technique. I also chose to use the new Masking Paper that Stampin' Up! released in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and I love how the repositionable adhesive on the back of the paper, makes it simple to place the mask in place and not have to worry about it moving while applying ink with the blending brushes or when stamping the images. This soft and pretty card design would also work well as a special birthday card or even a sympathy card.

This vintage card design has a wonderful old world feel to it and I love that the masked area looks like aged vintage wallpaper. To create the look, I torn the piece of Masking Paper into two pieces (down the middle of the 4" side) and placed the torn edges towards the center of the Very Vanilla cardstock, leaving a large panel in the center. I then added color to the exposed panel with Blending Brushes, starting with Blushing Bride, then adding a small amount of Polished Pink around the edges and finally using Crumb Cake ink to tone down the brightness of the pinks and add an antique feel to the design. I then stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set randomly over the panel using Crumb Cake ink, making sure to overlap the torn edge of the Masking Paper. I then added the small leaves in some of the spaces around the edge to finish off the design. Next, I gently peeled the Masking Paper off of the Very Vanilla cardstock to create the finished design. To embellish the card front, I added two 3/8" x 4" strips of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper to the top and bottom edge of the card front and then added the two strips of 1/4" x 4" Gold Metallic Specialty Paper, approx. 1/4" from the 3/8" strips. I love how these strips frame the focal design and add to the vintage feel of the card design. 
For the inside of the card, I repeated the process on the Very Vanilla cardstock layer, but this time I placed the Masking Paper diagonally across from the corners so that the straight edges overlapped in the center. I repeated the same color combination for the blending and stamped the same images with Crumb Cake Classic ink to recreate the same look as the card front. I decided not to add a sentiment to the inside of the card and adhered it to the inside of the card base. For the sentiment label, I die cut a stitched rectangle with the Stitched Rectangles Dies from Crumb Cake cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp with Gold embossing powder. I aged the label by blending Crumb Cake ink around the stitched edges with a Blending Brush before adhering it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the design, I added several small and large Brass Brushed Butterflies to the card front for a touch of bling.
