*Cherishing Her* Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Cherishing Her S2002

If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing a standard-size card I created
using the SOTM and the Julep "Mix-in" patterned
paper that can be seen using this link.

My featured technique today is:
Partial Scene Masking with Dies
You can easily find a variety of instructional videos
that show how to do this technique on YouTube,
just do a quick search for"partial scene masking."

Ink pad colors I used here include:
Intense Black, Ballerina, Pixie, and Raspberry.
The thin-cut I used was the largest frame from
our new Stitched Bracket Thin Cuts Z3631.
The mask was cut from an address sticker label
backing I had saved. The thin waxy paper holds
up nicely as you blend your ink inward from the 
edges and can then be re-used multiple times.

It required a little practice to get my ink to blend
perfectly, but I used three round make-up sponges 
(that's just what I happened to have on hand),
and it worked just fine. No special tools required!

I hope my card inspires you to try this beautiful technique!
Now you can continue on with the blog hop
and be inspired by more creativity using this 
stamp set by visiting Ramona's BLOG next!
