Sweet Magnolia Sneak Peek!

final-9

I finally jumped on the “floating frame” bandwagon this past weekend!  This was a lot of fun to make and it yields 2 projects!

We went on our bi-annual craft retreat over Cinco de Mayo weekend….I feel so much better creating so many things!!  I would not teach this for my club, but maybe a class that focuses on this technique solely! I really enjoyed putting these together!

First I chose to repeat the same flower for this frame.  I stamped 12 flowers and used my Stampin’ Blends to color the flowers.

Next, I cut out the flowers using the Magnolia Memory dies.

Then I placed (don’t adhere them yet) the flowers on a piece of Whisper White cut to 4″x 5 1/4″.

Then use a piece of Press & Seal and place over where you have the flowers.  Once you have it where you like the placement of the flowers, firmly press the Press & Seal around the blank spaces and over the flower pieces.

Carefully flip it over and trip the excess Press & Seal away to where it is now matching the 4″x 5 1/4″ base.

To create the frame; I used two of the Rectangle Stitched dies to yield about 1/2″ frame-cut out with a die cutting machine (just enough room for the Statement of Heart to fit in the center!)

Carefully pull back the Press & Seal and then adhere the flowers to the Whisper White base using dimensionals!

I then stamped the saying on a separate piece of Whisper White to place in the center and popped up the finished frame with dimensionals.  I then matted it onto a Basic Black card base.

And look at the 2nd card I made for my stepmother for Mother’s Day!  She loved it!
