More of the OSC2 and a class card…..

Hello! I thought I’d share another card from my One Sheet Challenge wk2 (and btw, when I upload these, I am putting OSC2 – or whatever week I am on in the keywords section in the SCS gallery. This way, you can click on it and see everything done with that sheet. Please do the same if you are participating – it’s fun to see all you can do with one sheet of paper!). Now, it’s the same sheet I was working with last week cause my Mother’s Day gifts kinda got me sidetracked last week. And DO NOT feel like if you can’t get it done in one week you shouldn’t participate. I am so NOT concerned about those details in any challenges I post. Even the color challenges……they are a guideline to help you get started with some colors that might be outside your box.


So this was a card I made for the TLC 116 this week. It was to do a 15 min or less ‘warm-up’ card. The idea being, that if you do a quick card to get you going – your creative juices will be flowing and you’ll keep on creating. Unfortunately, I had to take one of my son’s to the doctor and that totally stalled out my ‘juices’! Oh well, it’s a cute card anyway! It was made as a 3×3 card. I used the Chatterbox floral paper and swiped the edges with black stazon and mounted that on a bashful blue base. I stamped the Flower Trio stamp from GinaK in black stazon. I colored it in using a blender pen and really rust and certainly celery ink. The centers of the flowers are Twinkle stickers from A Muse. I also edged this white panel with the black stazon pad. It is mounted on the card base with dimensionals. Simple and Sweet.


Here is a card we will be making at stamp camp Wednesday night. I love the beautiful simplicity of the white card base and the reverse masking. I cannot claim credit for the gorgeous idea, I saw this card and case’d it. I put a post it note on a piece of white cardstock and used my xacto knife to cut out around the post-it. Then I used temporary mono adhesive to hold the template in place on my card base. This technique is called reverse masking – you can find more about it here. I stamped the images from PaperTreyInk’s Green Thumb stamp set. I used my fave color combo – so saffron, always artichoke, rose red, and elegant eggplant. Then I sponged a bit of blue for the sky and a bit of artichoke for the ground. The centers of the flowers were done with a quickie glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter. After I removed my template, I then used my zig millenium pen to draw a frame for my image. I stamped the sentiment in black stazon and tied artichoke grosgrain and black gingham around the top.

Since I passed 100,000 hits this weekend (thanks for caring enough to read what I share!) I thought I’d have to get some type of goodie up later this week. Hmmm….what will it be!

**ETA – I added the tutorial link for the reverse masking.  Sorry about that!**

  • Hey! Could you either show a tutorial on reverse masking, or link your word “here”in your statement …Find out about reverse masking “here”, because I am clueless, but love how it turned out! Thanks! Love your new pic too.
