I have a quick masking tip/trick for you today.
When you are not up for cutting out lots of masks from masking paper (especially small ones)… try using clear embossing powder instead.
Quick Masking with Embossing Powder/Resist Technique.
added note: (dye inks yield the best results – pigment inks can still leave a stain of color)
Photo (A) – Two flowers stamped & dry. Next, embossed with fine detail clear EP (using step #1 stamp for full coverage and VersaMark). Tip: It is also a good time to do any embellishing with glitter pens before embossing.
Photo (B) – The red arrows show pink ink on top of the previously embossed flowers (the yellow and orange flowers) and the clear emboss acts as a mask for the pink flower.
Photo (C) – Before embossing the pink flower (same as done in photo A), clean unwanted ink off with Q-Tip. Tip: wipe the ink off towards the image you just stamped.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you have a Happy (and inky) week!

Good Day! I hope everyone had a wonderful Summer weekend…. maybe a chance to get away to the beach, lake or relax by a pool…. maybe even a run through the sprinklers ?
Last Monday, I mentioned I was off to the beach for our family “day after the 4th of July” tradition. Even though it was a foggy day at the beach, we still had a wonderful time and came home taking half of the beach with us in our hair, towels, toys, etc. LOL!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
I was thrilled to spend this weekend with my dear friend Traci on a short adventure trip to the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo that was being held in Tucson, AZ this past Saturday…. and the best part about our adventure, we got to spend the day (the whole day) with KS Crew Member… Connie, who’s home town is Tucson! We had a ball spending the day with Connie… meeting her lovely family, fellow stamping friend, Sabrina, and seeing Tucson, which is surround by mountains …and of course, a few stops at Cracker Barrel…. (love their pancakes!) Thank you Connie for being a fabulous tour guide!
The crazy thing about this quick adventure… how is it possible to spend the entire day with some one and not take one single photo??!!! Not a single one! Just having too good of a time to stop and think about it, I guess!

So, I thought instead of sending him a “Thank you”… I would send him a box of “Thank Yous”. Since these card are for male … I kept it simple … using blues of the Hawaiian sky and the waters (plus, the blue really makes the pineapple stand out), no bling, no ribbon, no flowers! I think he’ll like them (I know his wife will!).

…lost on a white sandy beach listening to an island breeze rustling through the palm trees, waves crashing against the shore, catching a glimpse of playful dolphins on the horizon…
… Yup! That is where I would rather be… The Islands of Hawaii!!!
