Masking Techniques with Wafer Thin Dies


Good morning and welcome back,

I have new video for you today!

Many of us have wafer-thin dies that coordinate with stamps in our crafting collection. But cutting out stamp designs is only the tip of the iceberg of what these dies can do.

Today, I will show you how you can use these dies with Gina K. Designs Masking Magic Masking Paper and stencils to create some fun and cheerful cards.

You can also use wafer-thin shape dies to create windows that work perfectly for your stamped images.

    Looks fantastic! I love how the masking of the owls, makes them pop later when you stamp them! I think I’m going to need to be ordering the Masking Magic… 😉

    Thank you Gina for sharing your creative ideas. All 3 cards are beautiful! I love the flower stencil. That will be on my ‘must have’ list along with the Fairy Stamp set and the masking tape.

    One thing I like to do with dies (even if they have matching stamps). Just cut them on plain paper . Then just look at the shape. Sometimes you may come up with a whole different image. And another use.

    This is a unique idea. Thank you for sharing.

    Will you please tell us about the blending brushes that you use. How do you clean them? And, do you have one brush for each of your ink colors?

      You can clean them with just water, a little shampoo or just by rubbing off the excess ink. You don’t need one for every color. They are called Life Changing Brushes, coming soon to Gina K. Designs!
