VIDEO: How to make a Masked Tree in a Leaf Technique

stampin up masking technique video tutorial tami white

Be prepared for some masking magical “wow” in today’s Season’s of the Stampin Up Sheltering Tree video. I’ll demonstrate how to create this gorgeous leaf with the tree silhouette for fall, winter and I even added hearts for Valentine’s day.

This is an all season, all occasion card. It’s a gorgeous wow that is so easy and fun to make you’ll want to make a bunch and have them on hand for those last minute “need a card” fast moments.

I’ll also share my “faux know” trick. For perfect knot tying every time.

  1. The leaves are absolutely beautiful.

  2. Just made the fall leaf card…….OMG I can not believe how easy it was and so beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I love it! Cannot wait to try it out for myself. It’ll just have to wait till I get those framelits in. I think it would be pretty also with butterflyes from the pappilion set or any of the small stamps from the perpetual calendar
