This be the thread where you will link you entries & discuss the challenge & entries.

Yes. I know I have another 'masking' thread, but I have a link to it on my Challenge Blog. So...

First thing to do is read my Challenge Blog. If you have questions please ask them on this thread.

Some of you may find my 'requirements' a bit tighter than my usual, but--trust me--I've left 'wiggle room'. Up to you to find it or ask if you're not sure. BUT! Don't get so 'daunted' that you decide to 'opt out'--pretty please? I promise I'm a 'nice' host.

I, also, suggest that when you post? Take a moment to review the whole thread. I can't tell you how many times I haven't done that--only to find that someone has already done a post that answers my question.

Finally? As I say on the blog... The real challenge is to enjoy.

This will be my first masking project! ( I know, I know!) I've always been afraid to try it. Why, I have no idea!

But your challenge doesnt scare me and I'm excited to get going on this one

Good for you, Pug!

You might want to check out Anna-Karin's 'Make A Scene' Challenge. Masking is a great tool for building stamped scenes. And ? If you use a large stamp frame or make a simple 'frame' mask (circle, oval, etc.) & stamp your scene inside the opening, you taken care of the mortise requirement.

A-K's allowing challenge combining, too.

LOL, Cindi! So do you along with a post to your challenge. Kwitchyerfrettin, pal.

I'm just fine with both our challenges 'as is'. OK? Hoping to enter yours & hoping you'll enter mine.

For those who are 'clueless' about this? For this WF we have several challenges that require similar techniques--masking & stenciling. I think that's terrific! We may be at the start of a trend.

Be sure to read the blogs & see what hosts are saying about 'combining' entries. Is it a 'problem'? Not far as I'm concerned!

While I'm using stencils & making masks anyway, I can do separate entries in lots less time than doing 3 completely different challenges.

My last word (here) on the subject.

I may be oversimplifying here, but basically, if I were using your technique to make a card, it would probably be a one layer card with only purchased (or at least non stamped) embellishments?

That sounds good, Heidi. And that approach would work for other masking/stencil challenges where the 'stamping' goal is non-layered stamping parts.

And remember... You can use a mask to create the illusion of layering... see the masking thread.

You must use both regular & mortise masking in your project.

All stamping must be direct-to-the-material. You may not fussy cut or (physically) layer any stamp image--includes using them as embellishments.


This doesn't preclude layering mats, just layering stamped images so we don't have to make a one-layer card.

I loved this sample of yours, but isn't that fussy cutting where you layered your image over the background cardstock? I understand that it would be defeating the purpose of masking to cut out images and layer them, but that's not what you did in you sample. Can we do they type of cutting that you did or would that just complicate the requirements?

Hey Daniel, I am considering trying this challenge, but I have a question about mortise masking. Do you just have to create some large stamped background, like the pear on the other masking challenge, or is there something more involved.

My idea is that I would use my stamp block only to stamp an area that could be further stamped in. Which would work just fine for the "Make a Scene" challenge, she has done that before I'm pretty sure. But to make a mortise mask would I have to do something like tape off an area of the block to make a frame?

Do my questions even make sense?

Ellen, I also have a question about the mortise masking, so maybe between both our questions we can figure this out.

Do I actually have to STAMP over the mortise mask, and not just ink?

Y'all are making my brain 'hurt'! But in good way! Shows you're paying attention & thinking.

First things first. My linked examples are meant to share what masking can be. They are not necessarily samples that conform to this challenge's requirements. OK?

Now for Daria's 'Q'. While the angel was slightly cut out, it was, indeed, masked. And I cut around its wings to create the tag shape. So long as your piece meets my requirements, you are free to fussy cut.

Ellen & Heidi. Your 'Qs' are a bit more difficult for me to answer, but I'll try.

As I've already shared, 'mortise' masking is also known as 'fill-in-the-blank' masking. While it is mostly done using a frame or container stamp as the mortise, it is not the only way. I am allowing entries that use a non-image motise--cutting a circle or other shape in a piece of paper for example. You may also use masking to make your stamped mortise frame.

A simple way to tackle this: Use a BG stamp (large if possible). Stamp it on paper & cut out an opening. Place the cutout on your base & stamp the BG. Remove the mask & cover the stamped frame with its mask. Then fill with more stamping.

A less-simple way to make a stamped frame: Use 1 or more stamps to make the mortise. Be sure to leave a blank area inside the frame. Now you can fill in the blank using additional stamping. HTH

Remember. As with most techniques, there are few absolutes when it comes to masking. Part of this challenge is about how 'you' solve any 'problems'. You are encouraged to keep your piece(s) as simple or complicated as you wish.

I finished my card yesterday. But for some reason, my camera won't upload to my computer! I'll have to try to figure that problem out. And then hope the gallery is working too!

I combined it with Anne's stencil challenge. I got myself confused the more I thought about the combination of stencil, mortise masking, and regular masking. But if I get it wrong in my description, I'm sure someone will set me straight.

Daniel, I hope this meets your challenge to use both regular and mortise masking. If not, I will remove it from your blog post. Just let me know.

Sounds like a good plan, Kathy!

WTG, Pottle! I'd swear that your project was 'layering' rather than masking. Great job! Your 'mortise' with stencil 'fill' is neat.

Glad to hear several of you are working on entries. Try not to over-think too much. I know that can be tough with any technique.

Suggestion about the 'regular' masking? Try to do at least one where an image is clearly 'behind' another image. Doesn't have to be 2 different stamps. But--to repeat--don't sweat too much. Just have 'fun'.

LOL, GC! Don't go bald, either!

I hearya about the 'whispies'. Happens a lot for me, too. Couple of ways to tackle this...

1. leave a bit of margin around the whispy area. Chances are it won't really show. If it does--& really bugs you--try to fill in the area with some color.

2. cut off the whispy bits from the mask & just mask the more solid parts. Again. It may not affect the look. HTH

Okay, it's done and up.
Lots of fun and also lots of hair pulling. This is definately a process which requires thinking and planning several steps ahead and, as I already discovered in another challenge, that may not be my strong point.

I am still trying to decide if I have achieved an new respect and admiration for the talent and determination of people who use this masking technique, on many of their projects or, if I think they are slightly whacko for putting themselves through this.

ROTFLMAO about your post, GC! You show me a crafter who isn't a bit 'whacko' & I guarantee they ain't crafting!

I love your entry! That cat stamp is too funny. As I said in my praise, would love to see him in the bowl, but no rush! Work on the challenges that'll save your hair first. OK?

While masking is not the only craft technique that benefits from planning, it is probably the one that can drive many of us a bit nuttier than we usually are.

THANK YOU for playing.

Talking of wispy bits: I cut one off mine, and then rubbed the ink of that bit with my finger when I loaded the stamp. It was the end bit of a girl's hair, and wasn't important, so it worked fine.

Mine is almost finished!

My brain hurts, but I finally got this challenge finished. The biggest part of the challenge was using stamps I had that worked well together for both mortise and regular masking and that one element didn't look totally out of place.

I like masking though!

Christin. Smart thinking, but I already know you are a clever & talented crafter/artist.

Now we have Heidi's entry... Sorry for your headache, but we all suffer for our art & you absolutely rocked this challenge! WTG!

I see GC's comment about wanting a stamp with all your elements. ITA, but by doing it with masks, you can do a dozen variations with the same stamps. Your project is horizontal. Imagine doing a vertical version.

And... When your brain stops ouching? You might make a mask (or 3) for the bird & branch image. That way you can do even more versions.

Ta da! My very first Winterfest challenge completed:

Masked Girl

I'm actually really impressed with my masking efforts! It took a long time, but wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. I think I have masked before, though.

Thanks for a fun and challenging challenge, Daniel!

Ya done better than good, Christin! And pleased that you didn't find masking as difficult as you thot it would be. You did a wonderful job with the mortised apron & putting the BG behind the girl so beautifully.

As some of you may have noticed... I often offer thots & suggestions for continuing to explore & grow your already impressive masking skills.

Please note. Those suggestions are never in any way a crticism of your entry--all of them are terrific 'as is'!

Morning Daniel - As I have been working on other challenge, your challenge still is running about in my brain and I want to try it.

However, I am a Simple Ann - I just can't wrap my head around the mortise masking and regular masking. I am attaching a picture of the stamp that I want to use.

My question is what do I cut out (I have already cut out the egg looking frame and then have cut out the center, leaving just the frame but I don't think that is right.

I have read the instruction many times and done research both on line and in my stamping books but I can't seem to understand.

What am I doing wrong.

What I have done so far
Please help

Sorry it took a while to respond to this, Daniel.
I did look at the possibility of putting him in the bowl but I think he is a little too big and would look silly if I tried to 'bowl' him but left part of his paw or his flipper outside...still thinking on it but, for now, that bowl is the biggest ( let's face it, the only) container type stamp I have.

I'll keep the thought percolating in the back of my mind though, and who knows where or when it might resurface...there's always Octoberfest. LOL

I am thrilled by the amount of real effort y'all are making for your entries!

First off gonna deal with Lickey's cry for help. I am so glad she uploaded her image to the gallery since it is an excellent 'visual' to support my 'how-to'. Bless you, Ann!

I put my response to Ann's cry for help on the masking thread. The link to her piece is in my post.

What's great for me about her post for 'help' is that it will have many of us looking at our stamps in a whole new way. I have many where I like either the 'frame' or the 'inside image', but don't always want to use both on a project & don't feel like piecing/layering.

LOL, GC. I know where you're coming from about 'flipper kat' being too large for the container. Depending on the 'look' I want, I sometimes use the motise as a 'window'. That way what doesn't 'show' is not a problem. When it comes to 'container' mortises--where it looks like the images are contained in the mortise--I've played it both ways.

Sometimes I try for realism. That means I stamp images so they are within the mortise's edges. Other times I go for whimsy. Stamping just a portion of an image too large for the 'container' can be really funny.

lovepug - I understand your pain.

I finally got my mortise mask done, after several tried to get a clean image.

Now ready to do regular masking and had to research that. I am going to practice on regular paper first so I don't have to start all over again. I may not get anything else done stamping wise, but I will get this finished.

I used regular masking and mortise masking in this one. It is kind of a strange looking card but in the end I really like it! Fun challenge that really made me stretch creatively and shake the dust off my stamps!

I also added some fiber and combined it with that challenge.

Not sure, I am really happy with it, I see the error that I committed, but I did learn about these techniques. Can mark them off my "try new technique" list.

Neat to see 2 more projects!

Marianne. Love your mortised mason jar. Very haunting & lovely image. I'm not sure I see the 'regular' masking, but I am so pleased that you took my challenge.

Lickey. So glad you didn't give up! Yes there is an 'error', but since you see it & know how to correct it, you are ahead of the 'learning curve'. I hope it won't be your last attempt at mortise-masking. It will be much easier for you next time.

Marianne. Love your mortised mason jar. Very haunting & lovely image. I'm not sure I see the 'regular' masking,


My face stamp was a large rectangular one that had solid corners so I had to make a mask of it. I stamped it on a post it and then trimmed away the facial features part and then stamped it over my mason jar frame.

this is the stamp

My project title is 'Tuning in to say hi'. I stamped with black ink onto mustard yellow cardstock. It's a television set, I mortise masked the inside of the TV screen, and stamped a chevron pattern to look like the TV is out of tune. Then I masked the whole TV set, and repeatedly stamped the sentiment 'tuning in to say hi', to make it look like the sentiment is coming into focus. I added a strip of patterned paper on the side plus yellow cord to finish the card.

Here's my card! So happy to finally share it! I really enjoyed looking at my stamps in a new way, trying to figure out what to stamp inside the other stamps.

And then I used the scraps to make a little 3x3 card for the 'Little-Known consequences' and 'Use Those scraps' challenges, found here:
a good book

Thanks so much for hosting!

Here is my entry! I really enjoyed all the masking. I think I had it in my brain that it was hard, but it isn't really. Thanks for the fun challenge, Daniel!

Here's my entry for the masking challenge.

I combined it with Anna-Karin's make a scene challenge. It's not really a card so for now I'm just labeling it a project. I'm toying with the idea of making something similar to this(except add some farm animals) for my son's 2nd birthday invitation since he loves farm animals.

I'm surprised that masking is pretty easy. The hardest part for me was deciding what images I wanted to use.

Thanks to Daniel and Anna-Karin for challenging me on both the masking and scene creating. Both I had never done before I really loved doing.

While I have loved all the entries to my challenge, nothing has been better than the posts where pea-ple have said they found masking easier than than they expected or that they learned something despite having problems with their efforts.

As a fellow crafter who loves to share & learn--nothing is sweeter than knowing that others feel the same.
