It’s time for another STARS inspiration hop! This year I feel like summer hasn’t really started but it’s half over, weird right? It has been so cool that we haven’t done much hot weather stuff but the 4th of July is already just around the corner. I’ve managed to get in one of my grandson’s baseball games. It always amazes me how much the kids improve each year. They start out playing with the dirt on the field and not knowing which way to run, now they can throw the ball and actually know who they should be throwing it to.
For today’s Floating Frame Technique, I decided to make a playful card using some of the fun farm animal stamps.
First, I stamped 4 cows from the Over the Moon stamp, 4 pigs from This Little Piggy and the large horse from the Let It Ride stamp set.
Next, I colored them with Stampin’ Blends (yes there is a purple cow and a purple pig). Then I cut them out using a scissors.
I laid them out on a card base, then covered them with a piece of Press and Seal from the kitchen. I ran whole herd through the die cutter in one pass with the largest Stitched Rectangle die and a layering oval die.
Dimensionals have to be strategically placed to hold all of the pieces once the Press and Seal is removed. The trickiest step in this process is removing the Press and Seal once the frame piece has been positioned onto the card. Be very careful to slowly peel it back. It likes to peel off a layer of the cardstock if peeled too quickly.
The center oval was done with the Well Written Bundle. As a bonus, the center cutout can be saved and used to make a second card.
Here you can see the horse and the other pig. I’ve added Chalk Marker dots around the oval.
