Custom Masked Background for a Coffee Loving Squirrel


Coffee Loving Squirrel with Reverse Stamping by Jess Crafts using Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm here with a card for the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop. I know there lots to see on the hop so I won't add too much detail. Please click the link to learn more about the hop or watch my video for more about my card. 


As mentioned in the video the stamps are from Gerda Steiner Designs and called Happy Fall and Snowman Friends stamp sets. Gerda Steiner Designs is sponsoring the hop. I love making my own backgrounds but for this card I didn't want to fill the whole background so I used some masking to fill just a small space.

  9. Such a happy and adorable card. I too like to do a lot of my own background using several stamps and in particular with color challenges, and also do masking within the background. Found your video interesting and will keep it in mind with the coloring. Great instructions and great card.
