From Scrapbooker to Cardmaker: Distress Inks and Masking

For today's card, I'm using the old favorite stamp set, Lovely as a Tree, from Stampin' Up! I've used this particular stamp in silhouette before but this is the first time using a mask to create a distinct horizon line.

You may notice in the video that the cardstock for my stamped image seems to grow and shrink.  When I was filming the main part of the card, my camera batteries died and I didn't realize it.  Fortunately, it was near the end so I just had to redo part of it but ended up with a different size paper.  This worked out as it gave me more room for the greeting.  Later on I cropped the cardstock down so it looks like it got smaller, too.

Watch at YouTube

This is the last video I have planned specific to this series - From Scrapbooker to Cardmaker.  We've covered using scrapbooking supplies on cards, gettings started with stamping and a couple of techniques using stamps that work well for both scrapbooking and stamping.  I do plan to continue doing videos.  There are a couple of scrapbooking ones I recorded ages ago yet to upload.  So there will be more cards, pages and techniques - just my take on a few things.

Thanks for watching!  Ideas and feedback are always appreciated.
