Masking a Christmas Scene Using Celebrate Life Stamp Set

Hello, crafty friends! Marie here from MARIE NICOLE DESIGNS, where I blog and offer YouTube videos on cardmaking tips, techniques, and inspiration. I am so excited to be here to share a fun, masked scene on this Christmas Card featuring the Tonic Studios stamp set, CELEBRATE LIFE. Taking a few small images from a stamp set and masking them is a great way to build a scene and get more mileage out of your stamps!

I have some short instructions below on how I created this card, and I also have a full video tutorial if you are interested in watching the process!

  • Using your stamp platform, place your first image on the cardstock where you want it.
  • Stamp image using Nuvo’s Hybrid Black Shadow ink
  • Stamp the same image onto post-it paper and fussy cut
  • Use your post-it mask to cover the stamped image on your card front
  • Stamp additional images around your masked image
  • Remove the mask to reveal your stamped sccene!
  • Keep adding masks and stamping your images until you are satisfied with your results
  • Color all your images, and fussy cut them out
  • Use a little Nuvo Hybrid ink to add some color to your background
  • Use some Expanding Mousse and a stencil to add puffy stars
  • Add your stamped and colored images over the background using both liquid glue and foam adhesive
  • Add a sentiment with a Tonic Sentiment Strip die
  • Finish card with a little extra shimmer by brushing with an Aqua Shimmer Pen

I hope you love this card as much as I do! This was so fun to create, and using your stamp sets to mask a scene opens up so many card making possibilities!

Until next time,
Marie Nicole
