Decorative Masks Tutorial

How to Use Decorative Masks Cliffhanger Part 1 & 2

July 4, 2023 3 min read

I’m going to show you how to use embossing paste with decorative masks (stencils). I’ll also show how you can add drops of ink refill (re-inkers) to get any color you want! I went on quite a journey with this (including tech issues), so I ended up making a Part 2 to follow up on what else you can do with decorative masks.

Plus I decided to try something else right when I was finishing up the video, so that’s why today’s video was a “cliffhanger” when it was first released. However, since you seeing this now, you don’t have to wait a week for Part 2! Both are accessible from this page. Scroll down for measurements and a supply list for the card shown in the video.

Get Extra Free Stuff When You Use My Host Code

What’s a Host Code? I’m glad you asked… Please use my current host code to earn free stuff from me as a thank-you for shopping with me, without having to host your own party!

Everyone who orders at least $25, but less than $150 (subtotal) online with my host code gets a reusable hand-stamped card from me. It will be sent to the address you sed on your order at the end of the month.

COMING SOON: I am starting a Host Code Reward Club for the 23-24 catalog year. Instead of being entered into a monthly giveaway, everyone will be able to earn free stuff. More information will be coming soon on that.

Basically, you will keep track of how much you spend using my Host Code. Once you earn 10 points, you can submit the form to me and get free stuff from the catalog of your choice. This Reward Club will go from May 1, 2023 to April 30, 2024. All the details will be available here:

If you want to get others to purchase to get host rewards yourself then just request a personalized HOST CODE from me. Then after everyone places their orders via my Stampin’ Up! website you will be rewarded with hostess benefits!! See my current host code and see what I am offering to my customers here:


I used a Polished Pink card base (one 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of cardstock). It was folded in half at the 4 1/4 inch mark.

The next Basic White layer is 4 1/8 by 5 3/8 inches.

The top Basic White layer is 5 1/4 x 4 inches.

An extra piece of Basic White cardstock was used to stamp the sentiment.
