It's raining thank yous! (plus a video)

Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday! Today I have a video on how to make this card with masking. I've had a lot of people ask me to do a masking video, and it was so much fun! I was inspired by two challenges: Get Sketchy and Off the Wall Craftiness which Lawn Fawn is sponsoring, so make sure to go over there and play along for a chance to win "Partly Cloudy"!

So here is my video! You can watch it here or over at YouTube.

Here are some of the masking details from the card. I just love that Studio Calico paper, and I can't seem to stop myself from using the Papertrey text style stamp!

I really want a yellow umbrella in real life now. Don't you? :)

Guess what: Lynnette has some awesome blog candy over at her blog (Lawn Fawn stamps and CARDS magazines!) Go check it out and leave her some love!

Also, I can't believe it, but we are almost at the June release! DT sneak peeks start May 31st and the 3 stamp sets will be released on June 3rd at 12:01am EDT! Check out formspring for a silly little sneak peek that I posted about one of the sets!

  12. What a cute card and thank you so very much for making a video tutorial on masking. I had tried it many times before and it never worked. Part of my problem was I was using cardstock and not cheapie printer paper! I just ordered some removeable adhesive. Can't wait to give this a try!
