Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order.
This week we are showcasing Rich Razzleberry, a lovely mauve/plum shade from our regals family.
Tonight I’ve made two floating element cards using the Pretty Perennials bundle and this colour combination.
Have you ever tried the floating frame technique or the floating element technique? Both these techniques make two cards, which is a great time saver.
The floating element technique uses a window sheet to make the elements on the card look like they are floating – hence the name. After stamping and die cutting your elements you layer them onto a window sheet and adhere with glue.
You then trim around the edges of the window sheet and die cut out a centre piece so you are left with a frame or border piece and a centre piece.
I used the stitched rectangle dies for this – you may need to run the die through the cut-n-emboss machine several times and on an angle.
Use dimensionals (strategically placed behind the elements) to attach your top layer to your card base – the dimensionals make your elements look like they are floating.
I stamped a large sentiment in the middle of my frame and added some matte black dots and extra die cuts.
I love this big “happy” stamp from the Pretty Perennials bundle!
I used my centre “floating element” piece to make a second card.
This time I used Rich Razzleberry card stock for the card base and layered the floating layer onto a die cut Basic White layer.
Once again I added some matte black dots for dimension and texture. The “for you” sentiment is also from the pretty Perennials bundle.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created with Rich Razzleberry today!
