Today's KISS Card is featuring the Masking Technique! I saw this done in Stampin' Up's Demonstrator Magazine this month and it re-sparked my interest in it and I thought you might like it, too!
I have used the Masking Technique for years, in fact, Simply WOW! has several videos on how to use this technique in different ways.
It's perfect for KISS Cards (Keep It Simple Stamper!), don't you think? I have to laugh at the result of these cards and this video. I made the first card here a few days ago and it turned out differently than I had in mind because I made some boo-boos that had to be covered up (how often does that happen to YOU!?). I talked about that in the video, then BAM! It happened on the card that I was making.
Watch the video and you'll see what I mean and you'll learn how to do the Masking Technique.
There may be a slightly weird camera angle for this video. Just as I was about to film, the power, internet and phone went out. I thought it was the apocalypse (perhaps I've been watching too much Walking Dead) and figured I better hurry up and film while I could (although if it were the apocalypse no one would ever SEE this video!) so I moved my stamping station next to the window and there wasn't much room for my camera.
Enough chit chat…

So I messed up when I stamped the greeting here, so I had to stamp it again, cut that out and add it to the card. Then, I decided to add a bit of pop to the card with the Daffodil Delight Scallop Border Punch piece. When I adhered that to the card, it was too low so I had to move it. Yep, when I did that I tore the card. So I needed something else.
In come banners. The little banners ended up being such a fun, cute addition to the card.
I love the results, but tell me…does this still qualify as a KISS Card?
Tomorrow I will showcase another card that I made using the Masking Technique.
