Avant Garden Birthday Card Tutorial – 2 Crafty Little Sisters

Avant Garden Birthday Card Tutorial - 2 Crafty Little SistersIt is warming up in my neck of the woods and it feels sooooo nice.  And unfortunately I came done with a bad cold which has sidelined me for the past 2 weeks.  Ugh I hate being sick but I did catch up on my reading and all the tv shows I had recorded to watch someday.

But I am feeling so much better and I have been missing some quality crafting time so I dug out the pretty stamp set I got recently and started to play.

This was the first time I tried stamping different colors using the masking technique.  The masking make the colors really pop and made adding different layers of colors easy.  I will definitely be doing a post on this great technique.
