Video - Stampendous! Stamps and Masking for Three Very Different Looks

I recently received many of the stamps in the Stampendous fall and Christmas release and had so much fun designing with them that I will be sharing Stampendous! cards all week on my blog. Today I am featuring the cards I show in my latest video all of which feature the new Buck Scene stamp, different masking looks and many new Christmas sentiment stamps. The first card above is my favorite and it combines the Black Ice technique with masking of the gorgeous Buck Scene on copper foil paper and I show how to make this card in the video. I did some layering and added a lovely "peace" die cut from Quietfire Design. On the inside of the card is a perfect sentiment from this set of stamps.

The card above is the 2nd card I show how to make in this video. I stamped and masked the Buck Scene and then I stamped the Silent Night background stamp using my Tim Holtz Travel Size Stamp Platform. I added some red pearls and some Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter Accents for snow on the roof, fence and mountains. The beautiful Stampendous! sentiment on the inside of the card is from this set of stamps called Snowman Wishes.

My last Stampendous! masked card was very easy to make using an oval mask after stamping the Buck Scene, and then sponging with blue distress oxide ink. I  cut the oval mask and the "merry" with an oval die from this set of stamps and dies. The oval die I chose was stitched and after I removed the mask, it is was fun to see that the stitching from the mask transferred to the cardstock. The sentiment on the inside of this card is also from the Snowman Wishes stamp set.

We all need to stretch our crafting budgets and one great way to do that is to find different ways to use the same stamps and dies. I hope you will take a few minutes and watch this video, and then come back later this week when I post more cards using stamps and dies from the fall and Christmas Stampendous! release.
