In the video at the bottom of this post, you’ll learn how to brayer the front of the Bird Ballad Laser-cut card and have a bonus card front to make a 2nd card!  Above you can see where I’ve brayered Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pretty Peacock ink onto the Laser-cut card then I have the Whisper White (above) piece or the Very Vanilla piece (below) to use on a 2nd card!

The Laser-cut card above was designed by Kurstan and I made it at a recent All Day Stampin’ Retreat.  I decided to tuck the extra piece of cardstock into the laser cut card so that I’d have an extra piece for another card.  The cards above feature the Beautiful Friendship stamp set (pg 123, #149251) and the same 3 colors of ink mentioned above.  Note how well the reversible Old Olive/Pretty Peacock ribbon goes with this palette!

I also tried this technique with “Patty Colors” … Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral and Terracotta Tile.  The Wild Rose flowers, colored with Pigment Sprinkles (see THIS POST) were added to these cards.

Use your Sponge Brayer to pick up ink and apply to the Laser-cut card.  With an extra piece of cardstock tucked inside the laser-cut card, you end up with an EXTRA card front to use on another project!

Press’n Seal Card with Mosaic Mood Designer Paper

Have you tried this amazing Floating Frame Press’n Seal technique for cardmaking?  Cindee and I created these cards with the Stampin’ UP! Mosaic Mood designer paper and the Press’n Seal technique!!

Floating Frame Press'n Seal Card Technique featuring Stampin' Up! Mosaic Mood designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

We fussy cut the yellow rose images, butterflies and the hummingbirds from the Mosaic Mood paper, then used those for our 2 Floating Frame cards.  Check out the directions and video tutorial links below in this post for all the details on this technique.

Press'n Seal Card Technique featuring Stampin' Up! Mosaic Mood designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

How to Make the Press’n Seal Floating Frame Card:

  1. Stamp and die cut, or, fussy cut images to use on your card.  Lay them out on the card front.
  2. Apply a piece of Press’n Seal to the pieces, press down, and be sure the Press’n Seal is holding all images in place
  3. Flip over and use paper snips to trim away all excess
  4. Check the design on the front, making sure everything is where you want it
  5. Use a die shape of your choice to cut out part of your card front (I’ve used a Stitched Square die as shown in #5 above)
  6. Peel up the Press’n Seal, with the pieces attached
  7. Flip the piece over and adhere LOTS of dimensionals to the cut out pieces
  8. Flip back over and adhere to card

 

Floating Frame Press’n Seal Video Link:

Watch Bruno’s video HERE for more info on how to make the Press’n Seal card.

 

Press'n Seal Card Technique featuring Stampin' Up! Mosaic Mood designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

As you can see above and below, the Press’n Seal card technique makes 2 cards.. one with the center die cut piece (below) and one with the left over Floating Frame piece (above).   I added the additional butterfly above just to fill in that extra space.  I kept that card simple, just matted on a Thick Whisper White card base. 

Below, I matted the die cut square onto a larger white square, then onto a 4×4 piece of Mosaic Mood designer paper, then onto a 4-1/4″ square Mint Macaron card base.

Both of the greetings on my Mosaic Mood cards are from the Bloom & Grow stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso ink.

Do you love them!? I do!!  Let me know if you try this fun technique!
