Make your own Masks

Using a mask to ink card fronts is becoming more popular and a lot of companies are selling various shapes to do this but you can make your own masks and even stencils using the nesting dies you already have. So today my video is more about the technique then the finished cards. This is an easy technique and you will find yourself looking through all your dies to see if they can be cut into masks.

Materials used

4 ½ x 6 ½ card fronts

Heavy Acetate

Gina K ink pads- Lipstick, Sweet Mango, obsidian

Pink and Main- Good times litter enamel dots

Pink and Main-Wildflower kit

Pink and Main- Floral Hearts

Crafter’s Companion- Inverted stitched Scallop rectangle


1. Cut acetate an inch bigger than the card you want to ink.

2.Center the nesting die in the center of the acetate, tape it down and run through your die cut machine.

3. Tape the cut acetate over the paper you wish to ink and ink like you would a stencil. Use the piece you cut out of the acetate to leave a white shape on inked paper.
