Craft Your Joy Card Tutorial: Masking + Ombre Color Effects

Hi Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m so grateful you’re here. In today’s card tutorial, I’m sharing some super simple techniques for masking and creating organic patterned backgrounds. The cool blue and teal colors help create a fun ombre like look making this card bright with a fun background twist. I’m using my “Something Good” stamp set with Gina K Designs along with a delicate snowflake background stamp to create this card.

Spoiler Alert: I may or may not get a bit over excited about fussy cutting. It will be hard to look away. You have been warned! HA! Tee hee.

My Craft Mat:

I get a lot of questions about the craft mat I use in my videos. It is a piece of poster board from WR Memory Keepers. They call is Designer Poster Board: Wood White. Manufactured by American Crafts. I had the poster board heavy duty laminated at my local Staples. GREAT for photos, video, craft mat usage. It wipes right off and is heat resistant.

You can find this poster board in many craft and hobby stores.
