Today I'm sharing a much loved technique using the gorgeous Amazing Year stamps. Called masking its a very simple idea. Your going to be covering one stamped image and stamping another over parts of it.
The effect this gives is to have things appear behind the first stamped image. Now don't panic its really easy especially if you have a fab product called Masking paper.
This unassuming white paper is magic! It has a shiny side and a mat side. You are going to stamp your image, I've used the parcel image from the Amazing Year set, onto the mat side. I stamped in black as it's what I am planning on using on my card.
Once you've stamped the image fussy cut it out. For this technique I always cut on the line. This helps minimise any white halo around the images.
Now I took a mat of cardstock to fit on the front of my slimline/dl card base. I stamped my first image at the bottom of the mat. Then placed the mask over the image and stamped again. With the mask in place you don't have to worry about your first image being over stamped.
