Hello crafty friends! It is Jenn Bena here and I am so excited to be sharing my first video for Heffy Doodle as a design team member! You can watch how I created this festive one-layer card in the video below or over on our YouTube channel!
Today, I am sharing how to mask images to create a fun scene for a clean and simple holiday card using the Heffy Doodle stamp called Santa’s Village.
I started by adhering Heffy Doodle memo tape about 2/3rds down the card panel to create a straight line to help me line up all of my images. Then I stamped all of my images on some masking paper and cut them out on the black line using some fine detail scissors.
One of the things I love most about using masks when creating a scene card is that you can use them as a guide. So, without removing the backing, I laid out all my stamped masks on my card panel to ensure all of the images would fit. Having the masks laid out also helped me see which images I needed to stamp first so they would be in the foreground. I placed those stamps over the masks and picked them up with my stamp positioning tool. Then I removed the masks, stamped my images and adhered the masks overtop – this time removing the backing! I used my masks as a guide again and stamped my second layer of images. I repeated this for a third time until all the images I wanted to use were stamped. Don’t forget to adhere the masks each time you add more images!
Leaving all the masks on my images, I grabbed my memo tape again to add a straight line about one inch from the top of the card. I left a bit of the workshop roof and the north pole sign outside of the line for added interest. Then I used my distress oxide inks in tumbled glass and mermaid lagoon to blend a soft background for my little scene between the area the two memo tape masks created.
Once I was done blending, I removed all the masks and coloured my images using copic markers. Next, I stamped the sentiment using the Heffy Doodle Holiday Sentiments Duos stamp set. Masking the sentiment, I stamped the first part of the sentiment in red ink and the second in black. Then I added some fun details to my images using a glitter pen and nuvo glaze to finish off the card!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you learned some new tips on how to use masking to create a clean and simple one-layer card! Don’t forget to subscribe to the Heffy Doodle YouTube channel so you don’t miss all the wonderful inspiration from the video design team!
