Create a Collage Style Card with Stamps and Masks by Susie Bentz

Posted on November 14 2020

Hello!   Susie here today sharing a collage style card with an inspirational message courtesy of  Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps!  Layering of stamps is an easy and effective way to add visual interest to your projects!.

I started the background with the Lavender Deco stamp - I think she has such an ethereal appearance!  I created a mask on a bit of scrap paper and positioned it over the original image with removable adhesive.  I added a generic library card stamp from my stash, overlapping the the images.

After removing the mask I added the sentiments at the top and bottom of the card using the Dream Live stamp.

I used a watercolor technique to paint the background before spattering it with watered down ink.  I have a collection of washi tape and I applied bits of washi over the stamped images and along the edge of the card.  I die cut tiny stars from Turquoise/Gold Glossy foiled paper and sprinkled them across the front of the card - some had the gold side up and some had the turquoise side up!

I die cut a sentiment from the Turquoise/Gold Glossy foiled paper and black cardstock.  I glued the layers together  before adhering it on top of the collage. 

There is a lot going on with this card, but thanks to Rinea foiled paper, the main message is hard to miss -  follow your heart!
