A couple of days ago, I shared a Healing Hugs Floating Images Project Sheet about the cool new technique that's been "floating" around the internet. This morning, I shared how to do the technique, along with some helpful tips, on my Facebook LIVE. You can see the full Facebook LIVE video below, along with the details on how to make the first two cards shown in the episode.
***Please Note: Some stamps listed on the Retired List are simply being reconfigured to Cling Mount style.
I spent some time playing with the Floating Images technique and learned some tips that will help you have success! The technique essentially creates a beautiful "floating" background of images and is achieved with the help of Glad Press and Seal. I shared several versions on my Facebook LIVE, including the cool "floating frame" die-cut technique. If you've never tried this technique before, I encourage you to start with a full background of floating images then move to then frame once you have been through the basic steps.
Assembling The Images—I started by stamping the Healing Hugs flower 5 times in Pool Party ink onto Whisper Whisper cardstock. I also stamped the leaves image in Pear Pizzazz five time. Then, I fussy-cut the images and arranged them onto a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Once I had all the pieces in place the way I liked them, I laid a piece of Glad Press & Seal over the top, pressing just enough to keep the images in place on the background. I used my Paper Snips to carefully trim the excess images that were hanging off the edge of the background.
Floating The Images—Next, I carefully pulled the Press & Seal sheet apart from the background with the images attached. After adding a gazillion Dimensionals and peeling off the backing papers from all of them, I laid the background back over the popped up images while they were sticky-side-up. I trimmed any images that might be sticking out from the edge, then adhered the layer onto a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I finished by mounting onto a Mossy Meadow card base.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Butterfly Gala sentiment in Mossy Meadow onto a 3" x 1" piece of Whisper White cardstock, fishtail cut the end and adhered it with SNAIL adhesive onto the card front.
Finishing Touches—I finished by adding pretty Pearl Jewels in all of the negative spaces. It reminds me of baby's breath in a bouquet of flowers!
Two Cool—I created a second card using Highland Heather flowers and Pear Pizzazz leaves.
I layered the floating images onto Highland Heather cardstock and mounted everything onto a Gorgeous Grape card base.
Finishing Touches—The sentiment banner and pearls are the same as the original card. So pretty!
