Hello! It’s Jill here with a beautiful and quick card using the February kit from The Hedgehog Hollow.  The sentiments in this month’s kit are amazingly bold and soooo pretty!  Now, I’m going to be very honest here; I forgot to press record on the camera, so there’s no video for this card.  It was just one of those days.

Masking for a Sentiment

As I mentioned previously, the sentiments in this month’s kit are so pretty.  I wanted the sentiment to stand out and be the center of attention.

First, I stamped the sentiment on some masking paper.  I usually use Avery temporary labels as masking paper.  Then I used the Silhouette Cameo’s PixScan mat feature to create an offset of sentiment.  I cut it out, and my mask is complete.  You can also create this mask by fussy cutting just slightly away from the stamped image.

I wanted plenty of space between the sentiment and the background image.  I stamped the sentiment first on the card panel.  This was so I could get the placement of the background stamp correct.  I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment so that I could go back and stamp it again after I created the background.

I placed the mask over the sentiment.  I didn’t worry about it being perfect alignment.  Next, I used my anti-static powder tool over the entire panel and stamped the background image in Versamark ink. I used bright blue embossing powder to add a punch of color for my black sentiment.

To finish the sentiment, I put the panel back in my Misti and stamped the sentiment in black pigment ink.  Then I used clear embossing powder over the sentiment.

Finally, I ink blended some ink over the background flower image and added clear glitter brush marker over the entire flower.   It needed just a tad more sparkle, so I added some jewels.  So pretty!  I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and don’t forget to head over to the shop and pick up your monthly kit.
