You stated you had longer carpet. If its springy, the tape by itself may not keep the carpet away so you can paint. By taping a 1ft plastic sheeting along the edge, you can pull the carpet away from the base board.

The "packing tape trick" is the way to go. I always did this using wide painters tape and a large taping knife. Lay the tape as shown in the link then use the taping knife to slide it under the bottom of the baseboard. Then if it's not wide enough you can tape another layer out onto the carpet.

If you have any scrap aluminum around that works well to. Something like drip edge or cuts off of a roll can be slid under in the same fashion.

The clear packing tape that is kind of thick will work best for this. The brown stuff is to easy to tear and the blue will stick to the baseboard too much.

Always used normal blue painters tape. I suppose packing tape might work as is being advertised but I can't imagine it being less sticky than painters tape. Never done it that way.

Used a piece of sheet metal and held under the baseboard painted above sheet metal pulled out then reinserted as a went along. Wiped it off occasionally. No masking needed
