Welcome to our Blog Hop. We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

 If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you get lost you can find your way but going to Brae's blog at http://thebrae-er.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-brae-er-technique-blog-hop.html for a full list of participants. If you came from Lucy Imrie of   http://lucyscreativeexpressions.blogspot.com/2013/04/scrapping-with-for-always-fabric_23.html  then you are in the right place! 

This months Blog Hop we are each doing a different technique. I have chosen one of my favorite MASKING. I was having creative block on how to show this the best possible way then remembered a lovely workshop we had years ago called Bella! So with using the stamps that complemented Bella I came up with this card. Super SIMPLE! The key is to be sure to cut close enough to the  second stamped image (ie on a posted note) so when you place over the original stamp it looks as though it was stamped first. MAGIC! 

Every time I teach this in my class everyone is thrilled with the look! Hope you enjoy.
