Enough business! Let's take a look at some fabulous cards I made Wednesday during What's Up! Stampers?

These cards are all quite simple, and they each use a strip of our new Masking Paper to create the white space for the sentiment. For the first two cards, I used a piece of masking paper that was 1" wide. I put the masking paper across the front of the card, then did the stamping, then peeled the masking paper off. Super simple way to create that blank white space without using a white cardstock layer across the card.

For card #1, I just used a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock, measuring 4 1/4" x 11", folded in half to become my card base. I stamped the beautiful flowers using the Lovely You stamp set and Pear Pizzazz, Coastal Cabana, and Flirty Flamingo ink.

For card #2, I used a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock, measuring 4 1/4" x 11", and a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Basic White cardstock for the card's focal point. After masking the strip across the card with Masking Paper, I stamped the circles from the Watercolor Shapes stamp set in Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, and Polished PInk ink. I stamped the flowers from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and the speckles in Smoky Slate.

For this one, instead of stamping my sentiment directly on the card, I added some Fresh Freesia ribbon (on this week's Weekly Deals!), and the sentiment on the ovals, punched from the Double Oval Punch.

I'll share the masking process with card #3. This time, I started with a strip of Masking Paper that was 1 1/4" wide. I added it to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor paper, measuring 4" x 5 1/4." This pictures shows how you can use your grid paper to line up the Masking Paper to make sure it's straight.

Next, I inked the Butterfly Brilliance stamps set with Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers. I spritzed the stamp with water, then stamped it onto the watercolor paper.

Then I removed the Masking Paper to reveal the blank space, where I stamped the sentiment.

The Brushed Brass Butterflies are the perfect added accessory, and adding the Crushed Curry card base (4 1/4" x 11") finishes it off well.

All the supplies I used on these cards - along with specific links to my online store - can be found below.

Stampin' blessings!
