You want your title to stand out on your layout and one way to do that is add a background to your text. April Massad masked a portion of her stamp when creating the title for her Loving Life layout from Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Stamps & Ink.
Tips for Success
- Punch small shapes, like the ovals April used on several of her tag accents, to serve as ready-made masks.
- Try this technique using two sizes of nesting dies or punches.
- When your project requires very precise placement to stamp inside the masked area, consider using clear stamps or a stamp-positioning tool.
- Apply repositionable adhesive to masks to keep them in place, or create masks from sticky notes.
