Hello, and Welcome!

I’m am thrilled to have you stop by! Today, I’m sharing a different type of craft that is new to me: designing earrings. Who knew these would be so much fun?! I have known for a while that Taylored Expressions has been creating amazing products to create earrings, but I hadn’t given it a try. This past year at Stamp Joy, my mother joined me and together we were happily surprised how amazing the earrings looked! Of course, my mom is a jewelry junkie, especially for earrings!

Taylored Expressions Masking Stencils: The Magic of Masking with Designer Stencil Masks

Happy Tuesday, Fellow Crafters!

Wow! Today, alongside some amazing card designer’s, I am sharing how I used a neat collaboration product between Taylored Expressions and Laurie Willison! Together, they have created a product to change up the world of masking! It is sure to be a new staple in every craft room! View my slideshow of the new masking stencils below…

So, what’s unique about these masking stencils?

1. No more masking with washi tape hoping your lines are straight and your paper doesn’t rip when you remove it. Simply use Pixie Spray or purple tape to adhere the stencil to the back of your cardstock panel – no more ripping! *Yay*

2. There are two lines etched into each stencil for perfect alignment of an A2 card base or the layer just inside an A2 size (4” x 5.25”). Takes the guesswork out of centering the mask! *Hooray*

3. The stencil mask also includes the solid shape that falls out from the middle allowing you to reverse mask or apply two tones of ink to the project! *Excellent for multi-use techniques*

With all that being said, let’s begin with the first card project I created using these brand new masking stencils!
