A Different Way to Use Framelits

Another of the techniques I learned at Lydia Fiedler's "Unwind Retreat" just prior to the #InspireCreateShare2014 Stampin' Up! convention was using images cut with Framelits as masks. Hmm, this is hard to explain. Let's take a look at the card, and I'll try to 'splain it after you see it.

(Stamp Set: Hi There; Inks: Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black; Card Stock: Whisper White; Accessories: Word Bubbles Framelit Collection, Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder; Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Basic Rhinestones)
So, here's how we made this fabulous card. Lydia and her "sherpas" had done most of the work for us--the "hello" sentiment was already stamped on the panel and they had already cut the word bubbles with the Framelits onto removable sticky paper (like a post-it note, but better). First we used the negative image of the rectangular bubble and used a sponge dauber to color in the Pumpkin Pie. Then used the positive image of the rectangular bubble right on top to mask what we'd just colored. Finally, we sponged Tempting Turquoise into the negative image of the rectangular bubble. 

I like the white-on-white of all the panels and the Stylish Stripes embossed panel really gives some texture. We added a punched heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack and one little rhinestone. So cute, huh!
