Simply Fabulous Just Saying Hello Greeting Card using the Retiform Technique. Stamping with Friends Blog Hop. August 2022

  Good Evening Everyone

I hope you have all had a wonderful Saturday.

Today I'm Blog Hopping with the Stamping with Friends Ladies and our theme is Masking Technique. 

I decided that I would revisit the Retiform Technique, as I haven't done it in such a long time, and I thought it would be perfect for this hop. It's really easy to do and you can create some spectacular results.


Gray Granite Card Stock

1pc  - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

1pc - scrap

Basic White Card Stock

2pc - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"



Take the Gray Granite card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. Add one of the pieces of Basic White to the inside.

With the remaining piece of Basic White and add some post it notes onto the card stock at an angle.

 Using the Gray Granite ink, sponge along the edge to create a line of ink. 

Repeat this all over the card front changing up the angles to create different sized sections.

Now take some post it notes, and mask off a section, running the post it note all the sponged edges. Ink up your images and fill the space.  Make sure you stamp onto the post its as well, so you get a partial image, cut off by the sponged line.

Repeat this in all the sections. Then sponge around the edges to continue the look. Add this to the card front.

Finally stamp the sentiment in Gray Granite onto Basic White and they layer it to Gray Granite card and trim down and add to the card, placing a small merry merlot flower with a rhinestone in the centre.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, please take a look at  the list below and continue through the hop to get lots more inspiration for the Masking Technique
