2 simple tips for masking stamps

Two tips for successful masking with stamps from a stamper who loves masking techniques, me! I love masking, it is one of those stamping techniques that makes me feel really artistic!
While I was creating this cute little bear with a floral tummy, I realized that there are two things that have made masking easier for me...

  1. The Paper: There are lots of masking papers out there, including specialty stamping products and even post-its. I have found that Inkadinkado Stamping Paper is my fav. It's low-tack enough that it never tears my project upon removal and never leaves residue.
  2. The Ink: Stamping on the masking paper in a permanent, waterproof and fast-drying ink makes a huge difference. I always use Archival ink to prevent smudging ink onto my project.
Here's a quick video of my process:

And I little bit more about my card...
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs!
