I love good news. But I'm saving it for last because I have an easy card to share with you first. I really like the masking technique. It's a great technique when you're working with most outlined flowered stamps (such as Falling Flowers). It's also great when you're working with light colored flowers and you don't want the colors mixing together.

This is card is super easy and economical. Just a little strip of printed paper (I used "Pop of Pink") and the rest is cardstock and a little elbow grease.

I used Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay inks. I stamped off on the flowers onto a post-it-note. I then cut out the flowers to use as my mask. After stamping the large flower, apply your mask on top of the image and stamp the smaller two flowers. Then, one at a time, place the mask on the smaller flower and stamp the tiny flower on each end. Then you'll mask the large, smaller, and tiny flower while you add the leaves. Here's a close-up:

I used Basic Black for the leaves and colored the pearls with a black sharpie. The sentiment is from the "Thoughtful Branches" stamp set. This set is still available while supplies last and you won't want to miss out. It's fabulous.

Now for the GOOD NEWS!

First, I participated in the Case This! Challenge 001 last week and got a special mention. If you missed that post, you can see it HERE.

And second, my cards were posted on Kylie Bertucci's blog. Kylie is a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Australia and I have been following her blog for a long time. She posted my cards as one of her Pinterest finds. You can see that post HERE.

I hope you enjoyed today's easy card and masking technique. And thanks for sharing in my good news!

Happy Stamping,
