This time of the year there are masks in the shops everywhere, gruesome, ghoulish creations but here at Crafty creations we used a more serene form of Mask and created these beautiful backgrounds for future cards.
The only thing missing in the image is the sparkle from the Heat and Stick powder with the Dazzling Diamonds.
We used a variety of masks from the Seasonal Decorative Masks and the Heart and Stars Masks to retired ones.
One technique we used, the Heat and Stick Method, can be found here. Heat and stick – Technique Treats 9.
All these Shimmering Circles, Pink Paisleys, Hearts and Diamonds below were created using this technique.

Before I launch into this months Techniques, (which holds a surprise for you all) I would like to thank Alex at the Hosanna Farm Stay just over the NSW border for making our time there so enjoyable. And yes! I did jump off the 3 meter diving board. Check the farm out when you can put your crafting aside, it is a very family friendly, relaxed (I needed that) country place.
So what’s the surprise!
Having listened to you, our dedicated support group, we will be including a full photo view of the cards we make from this month ……..you can also look back to a few months ago to see what was behind the sneak peeks then as well. Vicky is working hard on bringing you the updated images.
As well, if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrators you can now just purchase your next class all neat and tidy for you to run with, all the hard work done.
This month sees the fantastic Technique Heat and Stick that just adds so much bling to any card. I’m sitting here, looking at them, and feeling for you as the images don’t do the wonderful dazzle justice. So much more beautiful in real life, as is the Wink of Stella. Those who have used it know this all to well.
Our other Technique is using Masks and we again have extra tutorials for you because there are so many wonderful ways to use masks. We have touched on only a couple with other suggestions on how to use them in your cards. There are 4 new ones in the Holiday catalogue, just begging for you to try them.
We combined the techniques with the Peace this Christmas Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalogue. Christmas is coming at us fast. Time to get those cards made!!!
Hope you enjoy this change in our presentations. Let me know what you think. We aim to please!
Cheers, a rested Naomi!
