Masking and Spritzing

Hi There Stamping Friends- I hope all is well with you! I sure have been busy with the end of the semester, and 32 final exams to grade for my Developmental Psych class. And this weekend was a quick little get-away with my family to Gloucester, Mass. We had a really nice weekend, but no wifi at the house we rented…so I wasn’t able to blog this weekend… but it felt great to unplug, you know what I mean?

Here is a great tutorial on how to mask and spritz (fill a spritzer bottle with rubbing alcohol – about 3/4 full, then add about 6-7 drops of  re-inkers) to create your own background paper for a nice card- the concept artist from Stampin’ Up! is Christina N. Hint- for even spritzing coverage, be sure to hold your hand back from the card stock you are spraying and push spritzer bottle quickly and firmly.

Step one – Punch out a bunch of hearts.

Step two – Cover the backs of the hearts with some Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and let them dry; this should only take a few minutes. (The dried glue will create a repositionable/non-permanent adhesive on the backs of the hearts.)

Step three – Place hearts on the card base. Use the Paper-Piercing Tool to do this.

Step four – Spritz your card all over using even coverage.

Step five – Remove a few hearts and spritz all over again.

Step six – Remove a few more hearts and spritz all over again.

Step seven – Remove all of the remaining hearts and clean up any extra adhesive left behind using an adhesive remover. Your card base is finished!

Step eight – Embellish and finish up your card.

This is a fun and easy card, and another good use of the Owl Punch!
Happy Stamping!
