Stampin' Up! Timeless Talk Amazing Family En Francais

Simple products and one technique work together to create a timeless greeting.


This card was created using a paper 'mask', and a few other tools (listed below). New to stamping? Check out how easily this came together.

First, create a 'mask'. This will allow you to leave a border around any stamped images or added color.


Set your mask on top of your card front and stamp a background image (or several smaller images for a collage look). Our En Fran├žais background stamp was used here.


Once stamped, add ink along the edges of the window in the mask; I used a Stampin' Sponge and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.


Remove the mask and you have:


Now it's ready for trimming and adhering to a card front. I also added additional stamped images from Amazing Family (sentiment) and Timeless Talk (phone) in Early Espresso Classic Ink. If you want to try this, I suggest using bold images so that they don't get lost in the details of the background stamp.

  1. Also use a light color for the background and bold for the foreground!

    1. Absolutely! These are just different shades of the same color (brown) but different colors work as well. Thanks for sharing your tip!

    1. Masking is so easy! And what I like about this kind in particular was that it was okay if the background stamp missed an area or three ;) The sponging and stamping with a bold image deflects attention from those areas.

    1. The phone is probably my favorite image from Timeless Talk. I thought it would be fun to use it on this greeting card because I owe this person a long friendly chat :)
