Masking the basics ~ Tutorial

Another wonderful tutorial By Beate covering the basics of masking.

Masking - Basic

by Beate Johns

Something as simple as a little Post-It® Note adds lots of depth to your stamping.


  • Post-It Note™

  • Scissors

  • Stamps

  • Cardstock

  • Ink


  1. Step 1

    Stamp the image you would like to have in the foreground (very front) of the scene on your cardstock.

  2. Step 2

    Stamp the same image on a Post-It Note™, making sure that part of the image is on the sticky part of the paper.

    I stamped two images, since I have several mushrooms on my cardstock.

  3. Step 3

    Carefully cut the images on the Post-It Note™ out with your scissors.

    Cut right on the line or even slightly inside of it.

  4. Step 4

    Layer your Post-It Note™ images over those on your cardstock.

  5. Step 5

    Stamp your second image over your mask. This image will appear to be in the background.

  6. Step 6 (Optional)

    Once you have finished stamping over one image, remove the mask, place it over the next foreground image and continue to stamp.

  7. Step 7

    Color your image if necessary.

  8. Step 8

    Finish your card.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
