One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Clean and Simple 2 Day 6 - 3

                                                             Patchwork Stamping
Jennifer McGuire demonstrated masking on a card...the white sheet you see was completely covered with eclipse masking tape in many different widths.  Then using a stamp positioner (like a thing a ma jig!) pull away the top layer of masking and carefully put your block with the stamp in the corner and press.  When you are done, you put back the masking ape only move it up just a tad, then remove the second layer of tape, clean the stamp and reink it with a different color ink...continue until you have removed, stamped and replaced all the strips of masking tape.  Pretty cool looking....I cut around the top portion of the Harvest Berry, I white embossed the sending you a Thank You and added some bling to the ends.  I stamped the background stripes with PTI Background Stripes stamp set.  I used Berry Sorbet, Mellon Berry, Harvest gold, spring moss and ended with Lime aid ink...the card base is Berry sorbet and the stripes were made using berry sorbet ink.

Another fun technique...now if only I can remember them when I go to make a card!
