[Video]How to Mask Close to My Heart Stamps

How do you stamp with more than one color on a single stamp?  Well, there are a few ways but the one I will show today is called "masking".  And I will be using post-it notes to do it.  
The "Y u're Amazing" stamp is stamped in green for the "Amazing" part and cocoa for the "Y u're" part.  A separate flower stamp is used for the "o" and stamped in Hollyhock.
To see how to do this and how to make the whole card, check out the video below!
Products Used:

Close to My Heart Ivy Lane Card Workshop Kit (makes 15 cards total-3 designs of 5 cards each):
Inks used were pear, cocoa and hollyhock.

  5. No weddings coming up all my kids are married. Your video was fun and gosh I've tried masking and it just never works out right but I always use the smaller phrase and word stamps so this could be why so I just use the snip it method (LOL) You are so talented always have the best of best to share and whether it's something I do or not I still watch because I'm always fascinated by the unknown. YOU ROCK!!

  20. Hi, Joy. Thank you very much on how you took one stamp and you stamp by using 3 different colors. I was always trying to figure that out but I had no luck at doing it.
    Thank you :-)

  29. Only one wedding that we're aware of so far. My niece in Ohio. I love masking with stamping. You can get so many different uses with stamps by masking. I was afraid to try it at first, but then saw the potential and discovered it's not as hard as it sounds.
