Roses In Winter

Here is a set of cards I made to demonstrate how each stamp set is able to give to several different looks.

These three cards are made with the same stamp set (Roses in Winter) and the same layout design. By varying the colours and the assembly slightly you can achieve some amazing cards...

The method used for this card is called masking...

You simply Mask the area in the middle that you wish to remain the base colour and randomly stamp your images. When done stamping you remove your 'mask'... I use a post-it-note as it is just sicky enough that the mask doesnt move and doesnt leave a residue.

I also used the masking method to decorate the inside of this card...
Stamps: Roses In Winter, Cheer & Wishes
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Pale Plum, Mellow Moss, Bordering Blue
Card: Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss, Glorious Green, Pale Plum.
Seasoning: White 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Pretty in Pink Tafetta Ribbon.
