Freshly Brewed Projects: Masks

The inspiration for this Freshly Brewed Project is ….


Decorative Masks are a great way to add some texture and layers to your projects. Stampin’ Up! have a great set of Decorative masks, but did you know that you can also make your own? For my card today I have created my own mask using the beautiful succulent die from the potted Succulents Dies to create a soft and subtle background. The great thing about making your own masks is it too can be used on a card after you have finished with it.

Supplies used: Simply Succulents bundle, Blending brushes, Basic white card stock, Purple posy card stock, mint macaroon card stock, mossy meadow card stock, Purple posy & Mint macaroon Stampin’ Blends, Mint macaroon & blackberry bliss Ink, whisper white crinkle ribbon, and Basic rhinestone jewels.

Potted Succulents Die and mask

To make the card … and pictures

  • First cut out your mask from card stock
  • Place mask over the piece of card stock and tape it with some washi tape or removable tape to stop it from moving around when you are adding some colour.
  • Ink up your blending brush, sponge or brayer with the colour you are using and gently apply it. To get the best results it is better to start with a light covering and add more as you need it.
  • Remove your mask to reveal your coloured image.
  • Stamp the succulent image in mint macaroon and colour with purple posy and mint macaroon Stampin’ Blends. Stamp a sentiment in black berry bliss.
  • Cut the succulent image, sentiment & the mossy meadow images with dies from the Potted Succulent dies.
  • To finish I have added a bow and rhinestone jewels.
