This week we are sharing the Fracture technique. This technique creates a super cool look and is so much easier than it looks. Which means it gives that Wow factor! Every Sunday rebecka and I hop on FB Live for our Spontaneous Sunday Stamping show. Sometimes we have a plane and well most of the tome we don’t, lol. This week I knew I wanted to do this Fracture Technique. I practiced once a few days ago and then showed Rebecka on the FB Live. We changed it up a bit so it took a hot minute to get it right, which is why we love Spontaneous Sunday Stamping. We share with you how we figure things out, plan a card and when you join us Live you can help us too.
You can watch the FB Live Replay below or over on my YouTube Channel and don’t forget to grab your Free recipe cards below too.
First up is the card I made a few days earlier. I used a Basic Black card base, (retired) Magenta Madness cardstock for my layer, and the adorable Hello Ladybug. I love how at first glance this card looks like I cut the Magenta pieces into odd shapes. But actually it is a full 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Magenta that I laid 1/4” strips of Black to create the effect.
Rebecka used the Silly Goose stamp set for her adorable card. She also used Cajun Craze for her card base which makes me so happy because I feel like poor Cajun Craze doesn’t get as much love as it should, lol. Rebecka decided to match her 4”x 5 1”4 layer to her base, making them both Cajun Craze and I love it! Then she added the 3 3/4” x 5” dainty floral from the Delightfully Eclectic DSP, so cute. Rebecka had the best way to describe how to lay the strips on your card. She said “use the 1/4” strips to “trace” the square. She is so smart.
I love this Masterfully Made DSP! But I won’t lie it made it a little tricky deciding how to layer the colors. But once we (“we” meaning our friends watch Live )got it was great! When you watch the replay (below) you will see it took a few tries to get it right. Heck, I made one last change after we finished the video. The Ladybug was cute but just wasn’t right yet. And Rebecka said it was making her brain hurt! SO we change the ladybug to Black and Pumpkin and Voila! We hope you will give this fun technique a try, there are so many possibilities.
