Floating Frame Technique Explained …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you “how to” create two cards with the “Floating Frame” technique. I have also included my video from last nights Facebook LIVE presentation. Grab a cup of coffee as I share these amazing cards with you …

The video will show you step by step how I created these amazing cards with this different technique, who knew that a common food wrap from your kitchen would be so helpful!! Let’s see the floating …

Now join me for the video … Got your coffee? Maybe even a note pad!! When you watch how I remove the film from the butterflies, it works best when you pull to the side (like I did at the end) than trying to pull up. Have a look …

I love coloring so that part of the technique was easy, and the new dies make it easy to cut them out too … I don’t even mind putting all of the dimensionals on, just takes me a while to pick them all off … LOL! Once you peel off the film it uncovers an effect as if the butterflies are actually floating.

I promised to show you a second card, one with the piece that was cut while creating the frame …

I placed the piece down onto the card front and peeled off the film just like in the video … including the Wink of Stella!! I stamped my sentiment from the Sunflower Celebrations stamp set in Melon Mambo, then added a coordinating mat and attached the entire front to the Basic White card base. Here is a close up …

So what do you think? Is this your kind of technique … Will you be trying it? I’d love to hear from you, please comment below. I think the Floating & Fluttering Bundle is an easy way to start learning how to make these cards because the are mainly joined together.

I enjoyed making these cards … I’m going to love sending them out I thank you for joining me today, I hope you have an amazing day!

  1. I like you get 2 cards for your effort- and they both look great! I will be trying these cards soon. Also I love press n seal- use it a lot in the kitchen and for things around the house. Never thought to use it for stamping so that just blew my mind! Thanks for the tip 🙂

    • I love your train of thought … 2 cards for the effort of one, and I must say I got a little giggle from the “blew my mind”. Makes us think we should scout around our houses more, right!? lol Thank you so much for taking the time to comment and to stop over to my blog. Have a great day ~ Linda

  2. Beautiful cards. Takes a little time but the outcome is worth it. Would like to try it with flowers. Thanks Linda for sharing another great technique!

    • Thank you Kathie! It does take a little time but I agree 100% … it results are beautiful!! I think flowers would make a perfect floating frame, and I would love to see it when you make yours. I appreciate you taking time to visit my blog and to comment. Have a beautiful day, Linda
