Welcome to week 44 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is one of the lightest neutral colours: Sahara Sand.

There’s a new technique around called the floating frame technique and I decided to try it out for my project this week, using the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the matching Nature’s Root Framelits.

The technique is quite similar to making your own DSP. I began by stamping the leaves and trees and die cutting them out before I arranged them onto a rectangle. Once I was happy with my layout I laid a sheet of Glad Press and Seal over the top of my die cut pieces, turned everything upside down and trimmed off the overlap.

My colour combination is Sahara Sand, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.

Once I’d trimmed off the excess, I die cut a rectangle out of the middle before removing the Whisper White cardstock from behind the die cuts. The Glad Press and Seal keeps your die cut pieces in place while you do this.

The final step is to use a lot of dimensionals behind the die cut pieces to adhere them to your card base. When your frame is in place you gently peel off the Glad Press and Seal. If you look closely at my card you can see where I’ve stuck the Press and Seal down too hard and it’s lifted some of my ink off.

One of my favourite things about this technique is that you get 2 cards from it. Here’s the second card, made from the inside piece.

I decided to make a third card to showcase the lovely embossing dies in the Nature’s Root Framelits, as well as showing how elegant Sahara Sand looks on its own when paired with Whisper White.
