Maui Swap – Masking, Blending & Gilded Leafing, Oh My!

Sharing is caring!

Greetings from the airport! I’m currently en route to Maui, soon to be enjoying my Stampin Up incentive trip this week. Now don’t worry – I’m not blogging while I’m on vacation. I scheduled this week’s blog posts and videos ahead of time so that I can enjoy the week away. I’m so thankful and blessed to have earned this trip, and I want to thank those of you who support my SU business.

Those of us on the trip this week were able to sign up for an optional card swap, so of course I had to join in, and I want to share with you the card I created for this swap. I used some neat masking, blending and gilded leafing techniques on this card, so I’ll share them as well. Let’s take a look.

Take a look at this beautiful card project, full of techniques including masking, blending, and applying gilded leafing!
