5 Creative Christmas MASKING Ideas – Same But Different Christmas Card Series 2021 + Video + FLASH SALE!

Have you ever tried layering 2 stencils together? The results are such FUN! Today it’s time to get inspired by yet another class from the Summit and can you guess who our teacher is?

It is one of my favourite papercrafters who is a brilliant clean & simple card maker, insert drumroll here…. it’s Laurie Willison from Soapbox Creations. And her class is called Creative Masking with Laurie.

And did you see the NEWS?
The Card Maker Success Summit ‘Christmas in July’ is having a FLASH SALE and you already know how much I have been using the Summit videos as a Holiday Stash resource, just check out my LIVE videos HERE and HERE.

The All-Access-Pass is available for only $49 USD until midnight Oct 30th EDT. This is great value and also a great way to support my channel if you choose to use my affiliate link for which I say a huge Thank You.


I made 5 cards today starting with one that was very similar to Lauries. ALL my cards used her Masking Stencils.

Which made the process very easy and fast to do.

I added the Mondo Holly with some Classy Stripes.

I used another flower for my next design. This time I chose the Modern Poinsettia.

And a strategically placed foil sentiment to cover an ink smudge.

Then I decided to change it up a bit and tried a Circle Mask.

And this time I added a bird from the Holly Tweet set.

Then, I really decided to change things up and chose a cartoon style image which is from Snow Much Fun.

And this time I added some Diamond Snowflakes in the background.

Now I was really having fun and pushing limits so next I chose this fun deer and tree from Santa’s List.

And of course my fave sentiment set came out again this year. I do hope it’s still available!

I would never have tried these together if it wasn’t for Laurie’s class. Isn’t it great to push a few comfort boundaries and have fun along the way!

  1. Gosh, Therese, I look at your gorgeous cards and I want to give up. haha haha If I wasn’t so far away in Texas, I would fly to Australia so I could peek through your window and watch you work so I could learn. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I would go craft stalker on you. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Your cards are stunning as always. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

      1. Awww, Therese. You’re so sweet. It’s a deal! I would LOVE to craft with you and I love hot tea also. πŸ’œ Likewise, if you ever mosey through town (that’s cowboy talk πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) we can get together. As we say in Spanish, “mi casa es su casa.” My home is your home. I will even teach you Spanish. (My mom is from Mexico.) πŸ˜€ Now we just need to win the lottery so we can each make that trip. haha haha Un abrazo fuerte de tu amiga/warm hug from your friend….Marisela

      2. What a wonderful invitation! You never know, hopefully one day soon the world will be one again…. as for the lotto, wouldn’t that be nice lol.

  2. Therese, these are gorgeous and so much fun! I have so many stencils and almost never use them but these are so inspiring that maybe I will finally pull them out and have a little play with them!
