Welcome to our last day with Jennifer McGuire our Fabulous Friend for the month of May. Today she has a mini-card set to share with you using Pure Innocence: Happy Mail. She’s used some clever masking and resist techniques on her project, and I love the way she’s paired the Framed Greetings Die-namics for her matting.
Clever girl, Jennifer has masked the image so that she inks up only the mailbox and birdie, colored and then coated the image in Glossy Effects. Once the Glossy Effects is dry, you can stamp over it with a background and the Glossy works as a resist. How cool is that?
Jennifer uses the masking technique again, this time to omit the mailbox and use only the little girl character, and omitted the pile of letters in her hand. Instead, she’s tucked some tiny flowers in her hands, totally precious! Again, this is the Framed Greetings Die-namics as her matting. Sentiment is from Just My Type – I love how she’s always mixing and matching her MFT elements for added versatility!
We’ve loved having Jennifer showcase her sweet style here on the MFT Blog! Before we go, I have the last of my nosey questions to ask Jennifer…
What was your proudest stamping moment?
“My proudest stamping moment was when my step-daughter, Kay, taught her first stamping class at age 13. She has amazing talent and is great at getting kids to get super creative and think outside the box. I am so proud of her. “
As a proud mom of crafty girls myself, I think that’s pretty amazing! Thank you Jennifer for sharing your talents with us this month! If you don’t already follow Jennifer’s blog you can find her here!
