Timeless Tropical Floating Frame Birthday Card

Today I have a beautiful floating frame birthday card using the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set. I love this stamp set so much from the tropical stamped images to the scripty font it is really one of my favorite sets. I recently discovered the floating frame technique and really wanted to try it. I grabbed my Timeless Tropical Stamp Set and In The Tropics Dies and went to work.

**Be sure to check back tomorrow for another card using the scraps from this frame!**

Rather than re-invent the wheel and create a video on this technique, I will point you to the Jennifer McGuire video that I watched to make this card, she does a fantastic job explaining how to create this effect. You can see her video here.

The biggest thing I wanted to point out was coloring the stamps in this set. They are so detailed and unique I have always had a hard time figuring out how to color them until I found a technique called No Line Coloring. This technique uses the same color ink to stamp and color the images. For this example for this card I stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green then colored using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo pack. I focused on the leaf veins with the darker marker and then blended together with the lighter marker. I hope that makes sense. You an also achieve this technique with watercolors which has a beautiful effect as well.

Here is a different view so you can see how the frame “floats” on the card…

I hope you have enjoyed this project and like I said earlier, be sure to check back tomorrow for another card using the scraps from the frame. Don’t forget to check out the product showcase at the bottom of this post to see the products used for this card.

Happy Stamping!
