Floating Frame Technique with Good Morning Magnolia


Have you been seeing a lot of posts online featuring the floating frame technique? If so, it's because it's so much fun and it looks fantastic and you get two cards out of one technique! There's good reason for its popularity. So I couldn't let it go without trying it myself. I watched a quick and informative video by Jennifer McGuire, went out and bought myself some Glad Press'n Seal and had myself a whole lot of fun on the weekend! Here's what came of it:


  • I started by putting my Stamparatus to good use by making repeat images of the small magnolia bud and small leaf from the *Good Morning Magnolia stamp set that will be available for you to purchase in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. I then coloured in the images using my Stampin' Blends.
  • The actual technique involves Press'n Seal and the Rectangle Stitched Dies, but I am saving the description of that for my Free Newsletter Tutorial for June. Every month I send out an email newsletter and I like to have a Free Photo Tutorial in each issue for the subscribers. If you would like to receive my newsletters and free tutorials, simply enter your email in the field below and click on Go. If you do subscribe, please note that you can easily unsubscribe at any time for any reason, and I normally send out only 1 email a month, unless Stampin' Up! comes out with a promotion mid-month that I wasn't able to inform you of in my newsletter.
*These products will be available in the 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, starting June 4, 2019.
**These products will be retiring and no longer available in the 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue starting June 4, 2019.

  • This card has the outer frame of the technique. Look how it appears as though the elements of the frame are actually floating above the card base!
  • The inner sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, the stamp set that we are all thinking of as the replacement for **Lovely As A Tree. It's stamped in Old Olive ink.
*These products will be available in the 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, starting June 4, 2019.
**These products will be retiring and no longer available in the 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue starting June 4, 2019.
  • The second card contains the center of the frame that was die cut from the first card, again appearing to float on the card base.
  • The sentiment, again, is from Rooted in Nature stamp set.
  • The card base and accent frame are in Blushing Bride.


I just had to get a meme of Grumpy Cat in there, since Grumpy Cat just passed away recently! But she is making an important point! The end of May is coming soon and you only have until June 3 to purchase any retiring products from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue or the 2019 Occasions Catalogue! After that, they are gone for good! Even the stamps that are carrying over will not be available bundled with coordinating dies or punches after June 3. You'll have to buy them separately at their full retail value, instead of saving 10% on the bundled price. So make sure you get what you want between now and June 3!

What a fantastic pair of cards! Love the colours and love the technique. My attempts at it have not gone anywhere near as well as these! And they show off this fabulous set perfectly.

Thanks, Jan! A bit time consuming, but well-worth it!
