Creative Masking with Kelly

Hello Crafters! Remember during release week when I said I couldn't decide what to use? Well, I'm still having that problem, which I must admit is not the worst problem to have!

Today's card uses three sets from this release to help me get the most out of what some see as a seasonal set.

A birthday costume party? Yes please!

I love how the simple addition of party decorations changes these characters from Halloween to Birthday guests. I added rainbow colors to add to the playfulness of the birthday scene.

Normally, I would now say "Watch the whole thing below." Except I can't.

I was a victim of camera gremlins. Camera gremlins are sneaky ninjas who break into your files and swipe the stuff you need. They have never been caught. I'm thinking of putting up reward money. Luckily, they only got most of the Copic coloring portion. So all of the planning and construction, masking and combining of the sets all survived!

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

Even though the gremlins got me, I still love the way the card turned out. Any time I can stretch a stamp set and see it differently then how it was originally intended, I'm a happy camper.

I really will be using the tree again which is the main portion of what was missing. I promise to do it soon. It'll be a sacrifice to create another scene card with these darling stamps but I'll struggle through. Just for you. ;o)

Thanks so much for dropping in!
