taylored expressions - masking stencil add-ons


Hey, everyone! There's a release happening at Taylored Expressions today that features products that coordinate with previously released Masking Stencil products. I love Masking Stencils and they have been somewhat of a game changer for me with my stamping! The new sets featured scalloped edges that coordinate with the four basic shapes: rectangle, square, oval, and circle. There are also impression frame dies that coordinate with the squares and rectangles. I have a trio of projects to share and I had a lot of fun creating my projects in a coordinating set featuring the Fresh Picked Florals stamp set.

The new products that I am sharing today are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!


This first card features the new Masking Stencils - Scalloped Circles set. At first glance, it looks like this card is multiple layers, but it's not! I stenciled the main circle using the Masking Stencils - Circles set using Sugar Cube ink on Toffee cardstock. While the mask was still in place, I stamped the florals and foliage into the circle from the Fresh picked Florals stamp set. I replaced the circle mask with the scalloped circle one, covered up the circle using the insert, and added the scalloped edge using a Blender Brush.


I masked off the stamping and stenciling with the scalloped circle insert shape and then stamped over the whole piece using the Wood Plank Background stamp. It's amazing the effect you can achieve with just masking! Also, Pixie Spray is definitely my best friend when doing masking techniques.

The sympathy sentiment on this card is from the Field Notes stamp set and I added a few sequins for a finishing touch.



For this next card, I used the Masking Stencils - Scalloped Rectangle set. I used the smaller scalloped rectangle and used my Blender Brush to apply Toffee ink onto a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. Before removing the mask, I stamped the Wood Plank Background through the opening. Doesn't it look like a separate layer of stamped cardstock?


Along the bottom of the scalloped rectangle, I added flowers and foliage stamped and die cut with the Fresh Picked Florals stamp set and coordinating dies. I stamped the 'sending our love' sentiment from the Field Notes stamp set above the flowers and added a few sequins to finish things off!



This last card features the new Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets dies. The dies impress a frame design into your cardstock and they coordinate with the rectangle shapes in the Masking Stencil sets. I started by creating a Sugar Cube rectangle with the Masking Stencils - Rectangles set, masking off the stenciled rectangle with the shape insert, and stamping the Wood Plank Background stamp over the top. Then, I impressed the Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets die around the inside of the white stenciled rectangle.


I stamped the border of the card using the florals and foliage from the Fresh Picked Florals stamp set and added a few die cut pieces around the frame. It turned out so pretty and I love the extra texture and dimension! I stamped the 'thinking of you' sentiment from the Field Notes stamp set in the frame opening and sprinkled sequins throughout the floral frame design.
