2. Stamp the same image on a Post-It Note™, making sure that part of the image is on the sticky part of the paper. I stamped several leaves, since I wanted to stamp a leaf pile on my cardstock.
3. Carefully cut out images on the Post-It Note with your scissors. Cut right on the line or even slightly inside of it.
4. Layer your “ Post-It Note” images (show in green here) over the ones you have stamped on your cardstock.
5. Stamp your second image over your mask. This image will appear to be in the background.
6. Once you have finished stamping over one or more of the “masked” image, remove the mask, place it over the next foreground image you want in the front and continue to stamp.GT%20-%20masking%202

10. On the back of the Rich Razzleberry Circle apply a generous amount of Snail Adhesive to the edge. Begin sticking the Waffle paper to the adhesive, gathering slightly as you go, when you get to the end of the first piece use the second piece, overlapping the first so that you can not see the seam.
11. When your Waffle Paper ruffle is complete turn it over, you will notice that it is not a even circle, use your Paper Snips to trim the Waffle Paper into an even circle. Mount this to your page with Dimensionals.
12. To make the Spooky Banner, Ink Spooky image with Tangerine Tango ink then using the Basic Black marker apply Black ink over the top of the Tangerine, inking only the top half of each letter on the Spooky stamp. Stamp this on Whisper White card stock that is 7/8″ x 3″.
13. Ink the Spider Web image in Basic Gray ink, stamp it off on scratch paper and them on the Spooky image, repeat this to achieve the desired look.
