Another CAS card and technique - masking

Hello blogland!  I'm playing catch-up with some of the cards from the On-Line CAS card making class, and this card is from Day 2 - masking.  How come I've never done this before??  It was so fun and easy, I'll be doing it more :)
Fun, fun, fun and so easy too - and the big secret?  Post-it notes!  I used the Post-it notes to make a rectangle in the center and used one of the new Sizzix/Hero Arts Die and Stamp sets to cut out a mask for both the flower and sentiment. After stamping the text in the center and removing the post-its, it was simple to stamp the flower and large sentiment.  One-two and it was done :)

Next up, here's another quick and easy valentine card made from a wide ribbon and a thin ribbon:

Another super simple CAS card - the LOVE stamp is from a Tim Holtz set but the heart was cut from 4 inch rosette trim from KarlaS001 Etsy Shop.  I stamped a heart image on a piece of scrap cardstock and traced in on the back of the trim to cut it out - no shredding or tearing :)  I finished the card off with two pieces of red/white ribbon and two pieces of white pearl sprays also from Karla's shop and viola, done!
