Thanks so much Krista. That is super easy. I had never realized that is what it was called. Still learning...

As a side note, just wanted to say sorry that other lady was so rude to you in another thread (school stamps). I was just getting ready to post to her and then noticed her rude remarks. Definitely NOT someone I'd want to deal with. Huggs and thanks again for the fast reply !!!

You can see instructions and a cute sample on the Stampin' Up! homepage under Projects, scroll to techniques then choose Masking. I think you can see more samples if you enter Masking as a key word in the Gallery search here.

Thank you so much for sharing these links. Oh my gosh! Michelle has amazing talent with this technique. Her cards are simply breathtaking! I've been masking for years, but this takes it to a whole new level. Thanks again!

Thanks for the great tutorial. I would not have figured that one out on my own, but you make it look do-able. I kept thinking as I read that 3M has Post-it note glue stick. I use it when masking and find it to be very helpful. You can use any size of paper and have the adhesive anywhere you want it. Thanks again!

Thanks Elaine! I had fun making that card -- it's a great optical illusion!

Here's an entry on my blog that tells you how to make a mask...

http://paperfriendly.blogspot.com/se...=making+a+mask

As far as what a mask is and what it does: layers images without layering! Images can be overstamped without creating confusion if the first image is masked before stamping following images. Think of a vase of flowers...without masking, you'd have a jumbled up mess of flowers and the vase...masking let each flower look as though it is in front of or behind another, and all flowers are arranged in the vase.

Masking is a basic stamping technique...been around from day 1, as a matter of fact! It's as handy a technique to use today as it was when it first was used.

If I can figure out how to do link, here's a card I made using masking and stamping off to give motion effect. I found the instructions in a book from my library, from 1998. I've also seen tutorials with this technique to give movement.

I love to stamp scenes and masking is a must. I use sticky notes and Eclipse Masking Tape. I like the Eclipse because the entire sheet is sticky so it protects the entire image however, it has one draw back in that it can leave a sticky residue. I just rub the sticky stuff off with my finger or my glue eraser. I've added last year's halloween card to my gallery. With this scene, you will note there is a lot of masking.
