Masking and a Thank You

Ahhh, happy Friday Everyone!

Hope you had a good week and are ready for another weekend. I know I am! And I'm hoping to get to the movies this weekend too...anyone else?

Today I have two cards to share, first my card for Just Magnolia. This week we want to see you use masking and a Magnolia image. You do not need to use all Magnolia images, but please have at least one Magnolia image present on your project. Masking is a great technique when creating a scene.

I've used this sweet Tilda with my Whimsy Stamps Accessories log stamp. I first stamped Tilda and then stamped her again on scrap paper, cut her out, and then used the cut out to cover up my original Tilda on my image paper. Then I stamped the log over the image and removed the cut out of Tilda and viola...a sitting on a log Tilda! Be sure to check out the beautiful masking creation my design team members have made this week.

My image was colored with Copics and highlighted with a gel pen. I created the faux snow with some glue and chunky glitter. I cut the corners on my image piece with the ticket corner punch. I've distressed all the paper edges as well.

I used the sketch from last week's Friday Sketchers challenge with some BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses papers and red and pink card stock. Then embellished with Prima flowers and some organdy ribbon and a button and pearl.

This week at Stamp Something we are having a two week challenge! We want to give our DT gals a break for Thanksgiving next week. That means you all will have two weeks to play along and we also have two sponsors which means two blog candy winners and our Top 5 Stampers!

Our challenge this week is simple too....thank you somethings! We are all feeling thankful for your continued support and all the wonderful entries we get each week and in honor of the US Thanksgiving holiday we thought this was a perfect challenge theme.

For my card I used an image from one of our sponsors, Cardmad Fairy! Cardmad Fairy is actually owned by our designer Jenni! She has a line of fun digital images and was kind enough to let our DT use them for the challenge.

I've colored my image with Copics and then added some glitter glue accents to her wings and the little hearts she is holding. The papers are BasicGrey Lilykate and some blue and purplish card stock. I embellished with Prima flowers and ribbon and added a sentiment from the SU! set Short and Sweet.

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Stamping! :)
