Inspiring Sneak Peek with the Retiring Stars Decorative Mask
Hopefully, I have your attention! So...I love decorative masks or, if you prefer, stencils!
I am also sad when Stampin' Up! retires a Decorative Mask, because I like to have a variety in which to choose from for my projects.
Today, I am featuring the soon to retire Stars Decorative Mask. However, I am going to use a product similar to what you can expect to see in the new Creativity Your Way Annual Catalog 2017-2018!
I am so excited by these additions in the new Stampin' Up! catalog! Check it out for yourself on page 201 under the heading "Coloring Tools!"
Additionally, if you hold in until the end of my this blog post, as an extra bonus, I will include an additional project with the retiring Hearts Decorative Mask, which is so, so cute!
I know the Fourth of July is still a bit down the road, but I am losing my stars in a couple of weeks! However, I am a gaining a set of four brand new masks called Pattern Party Decorative Masks with the debut of the new Annual Catalog!
I am not sure if you can tell my the photos, but I applied the stars with the use of my Palette Knives and Embossing Paste!
The white stars on the blue background is without any color and the red stars on the white background is embossing paste with Real Red Ink mixed in!
Wait, wait... I also mixed in Dazzling Diamond Stampin' Glitter! How cool is that!!! Sometimes, I even rock my own world!
I also used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Duet Banner Punch, Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set, Gold and Silver Metallic Thread (I love this stuff), Gold and Silver Glimmer Paper, the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set, and an Aqua Painter to create a little watercolor wash backdrop.
I went back and forth about using only Silver Glimmer Paper with both cards, but ended up using Gold Glimmer Paper too! What do you think?
