Be Creative Using Masking Tape!

Here’s a technique that has been on my radar for quite some time, but this is my first time trying it.  Easy-peasy!  Masking tape and ink pads can create a great background.  Step by step instructions can be found below.


Stamp Set – Positive Thoughts
Ink – Daffodil Delight, Magenta Madness, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black
Cardstock – Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Accessories – Stitched Rectangle Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Seal, masking/painters tape

Stamping Tips:

  • tear a piece of masking tape 1-2″ longer than you want your background to be (the extra length gives you something to hang on to
  • lay the sticky side of the masking tape on top of the ink, pressing down lightly to pick up ink
  • lift the masking tape from the ink pad and lay it on your cardstock
  • press down on the masking tape to transfer ink to the cardstock
  • lift the masking tape up from the cardstock – that’s all there is to it!

You can vary the color combinations, the length of the masking tape, be creative!
