taylored expressions - magical backgrounds using masking stencils


Hey everyone! I have a magical card to share with you today that I created using the Masking Stencils and a few other products from Taylored Expressions. This project is also featured over on the Taylored Expressions blog.

Watch the video below to see the larger circle from the Masking Stencils – Circles collection in action to create the fun and magical background on my project:

Using the Masking Stencils – Circles made creating the circular rainbow background with sparkly stars so quick and easy. The Masking Stencils feature a guide for an A2 card front so the circle is lined up perfectly on your project with no measuring needed!


I used Blender Brushes to create the rainbow blend with the Masking Stencil using only three colors of ink: Guava, Pineapple, and Cookie Monster. I overlapped the colors to create the orange and green tones in the blend.


I layered the Scattered Stars stencil over the top of the Masking Stencil and used a spatula to apply Moonstone glimmer paste through the stencil to create the sparkly star design over the rainbow blend.

Isn’t that magical background the perfect background for the little pegasus from the Dreamer set? I added a sentiment that I previously stamped using the Simple Strips – Birthday stamp and the coordinating Simple Strips die. I love having a pile of sentiments ready to go for projects!


Thank you so much for joining me today. I will be back soon with more crafty inspiration to share!
