It Starts With Art Floating Frame part 2

Hello! Before we jump into today's project, I wanted to let you know that Stampin' Up! has announced their Last Chance SALE!! You read that correctly, SALE! You can save anywhere between 10-30% on select retiring product. To see what is on sale in the Occasions Catalog, click here and to see what is on sale in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, click here. The sale starts today at 12:00 PM MT/2:00 PM ET and runs through June 3rd, however, everything is "WHILE SUPPLIES LAST". Historically, once the sale is announced, stuff sells out in record time, so, DO NOT wait to grab what you want! Go IMMEDIATELY and order what you want/need because stuff while go very quickly.

Okie dokie, now that we have all that official business out of the way, I have a follow up to Tuesday's post. This here is another sneak peek into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog with the It Starts with Art Suite of product. This card is created with the "left over" center die cut from creating the Floating Frame card shown in Tuesdays' post.
To recreate this card, you will need in addition to the center panel cut from the floating frame, a standard card base 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"; a panel measuring 4" x 5 1/4". Since my center cut pieces where predominately Flirty Flamingo, I chose the same for my card base and panel. I ran the panel through my Big Shot with the brand new embossing folder, Button Button to add additional fun and texture to the card and adhered it to my card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the floating panel to the center with Stampin' Dimensionals and stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White measuring 3" x 1\2" and bannered one end using my Paper Snips and adhered it to my card using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I love how this card turned out and I love the idea of getting more than one card from a technique such as the Floating Frame technique. This was fun and I hope it inspires you to give it a try.

New Catalog Sneak Peek - It Starts with Art Floating Frame

Good Morning! I have a fun sneak peek into the new catalog for you! It's the brand new set, It Starts with Art. This set just screams FUN! It has some awesome imagery like ink refill bottles, spools of ribbon and LOTs of buttons.
And the coordinating die set, is AWESOME! Anyway, I had wanted to try the floating frame technique that has been going around in the stamping community and this stamp set just screamed for me to try the technique out with it and here it is:

To create this fun card, I started with a card base of Thick Whisper White cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4". I then stamped out several of the images onto Whisper White cardstock, colored them in using my Stampin' Blends (Smoky Slate; Flirty Flamingo; Mango Melody, Night of Navy and Mint Macaron) then die cut them out with the coordinating dies.I then cut a piece of Whisper White panel, 4" x 5 1/4" and placed all of my die cut pieces on the panel, (some hung off the panel edges) then I covered the piece with Press n Seal wrap in order to maintain the position of my pieces. Then, using the Stitched Rectangle dies, I die cut the center of the piece. Then, I carefully pealed away the Press n Seal (the die cut pieces come away from the panel with the Press n Seal wrap) and applied Stampin' Dimensionals to the die cut pieces and then carefully replaced the Press n Seal taking care to line everything back into the original position.I then stamped my sentiment in Night of Navy ink on the card base along with a few random buttons in Flirty Flamingo. I then attached the frame to the cardbase with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope this inspires you to give the floating frame technique a try. It's a lot of fun and provides lots of interest. Be sure to check back Thursday, I will have card # 2 from the center of my frame. (Best part of this technique is 2 cards for the "price of one"!
In the meantime, happy stamping,

Retiform and Best Catch

Hello! I have a fun card I want to share with you that I made on my Facebook Live Sunday night. It's a fun technique that I haven't used in a long time and I was reminded of it at my team meeting by one of my team members, Brenda.
Each month at our team meeting, I am having one or two of my team present a technique or new pattern to the group. I love the sharing among us and it keeps them engaged, and this month was Brenda's turn and she presented the Retiform technique. She used the too cute for words Hop Along Sale-a-bration stamp set and it got me to thinking I wanted to do something with this technique on my Facebook Live. So, I pulled out Best Catch.
It just so happens to be my product pick for this week. It's carrying over into the new catalog, however, the bundle pricing goes away with the end of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on June 3rd, so don't miss out on that 10% savings. Seriously!

This stamp set lends itself to this technique perfectly with all of it's different fishing related images such as the fish, fishing hat and fly. I love this set and it's perfect for the fishermen in you life. I have several.
To create this card, you will need a post it note, ink (I used Crumb Cake for the sponging and Early Espresso for the stamped images) a sponge, and a multi image stamp set. Begin by applying the post it note across the cardstock and sponge color lightly over and into the post it. Then move it around, sponging as you go, to create random areas of demarcation as seen in the photo above. Keep in mind, everyone you do, will be different. That's the beauty of hand made! Once you are happy with your results, stamp your images randomly inside the "framed" areas created by the sponging and post it note. Quick, simple and a great card! I hope you enjoyed this and if you would like to check out the video for this card, visit my Facebook page to view it here. #simplestamping
Have a great remainder to your evening and thanks for stopping by, I truly appreciate you!
Happy Stamping,
