Clean and simple Stampin' Up! Fabulous Flamingo card made with the Stampin' Up! Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comWant a very quick and easy hand stamped greeting card to make? Try my clean and simple Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flamingo card using the reverse masking technique.

Reverse masking is when you cover the outside area and stamp only inside it. The filled in area looks like a layer of cardstock. You can see a video demonstration I recorded of the reverse masking technique here.

You can use a punch or die to make your own reverse masking template or make your own with the Stampin’ Trimmer as I did for my Fabulous Flamingo card. See how to make a reverse masking template of any size in the video here.

The detail of the flamingo is fabulous. Do you think that’s where they got the name of the stamp set? It’s what Stampin’ Up! calls a two-set stamp set. It takes at least two steps to complete the image. In this case, it was four steps. That’s how you easily get more than one color. It’s easy to line up the stamps because the rubber is clear. Whenever you see “photopolymer” in the name of a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that indicates the rubber is clear. Not to be confused with clear-mount stamp sets. Those are unmounted red rubber stamps.

For the other reverse masking cards you were linked to, the square or rectangle was completely filled in and then either stamped on or die-cut images layered on top. This time the flamingo was stamped first and then So Saffron Classic Stampin’ Pad ink sponged around the flamingo – not under. That allows the flamingo to stand out on the Whisper White Thick Cardstock.
