Today I'm blogging on the Sizzix blog with a Designer Challenge to use any of the Pop 'n Cuts inserts that depict imagery. Here are the ten inserts included in the challenge:
I invited ten designers from four countries and five states to create something using any of the ten inserts shown. A big thank you to Anna-Karin, Caz, Donna, Fran, Frances, Gretchen, Helen, Kelly, Raquel and Shelly. You will find all their projects with links to the full blog posts on the Sizzix blog: Pop 'n Cuts Imagery Inserts Designer Challenge
For my contribution, I created a Floating Floor for the Ribbon Tree Insert by scoring and folding the Pop 'n Cuts card itself. For the Stand-up designs (Ribbon Tree, Star, Poinsettia and Frame) you could use these same measurements to create a floor and you will not need a special template to do so.
The video tutorial shows how to achieve this effect:
Here are the measurements for the Floating Floor:
Here's a side view of the floor for a better visual of the L supports. The center tree is the original Pop 'n Cuts ribbon tree and is supported in the usual "tent" fashion, so there are no L supports for that tree. You'll only need L supports for any extra pop-up items that you place around the floor.
Here are shopping links for all three Pop 'n Cuts Base Die options, plus all ten Imagery inserts (plus the Noel insert because it's used in the project). For each insert, I've added a link to the decorator die (or dies) that perfectly coordinate. These are all shopping links for Scrapbook.com, who has everything in stock (as of this moment) except the Butterfly Window Insert and Bigz Butterflies & Labels. Sizzix tells me that a re-order is expected in a couple of weeks. The Stampin' Up! Exclusive dies can be ordered through your local demonstrator.
Oh! And there's another great project to see - Anna-Karin's Butterfly Window masterpiece on the Simon Says Stamp Blog here.
Once again, a huge THANK YOU to my talented designer friends for accepting the Designer Challenge. Next month's challenge is scheduled for September 19th on the Sizzix blog.
EDITED TO ADD:
Check out this Frantastic version of the Ribbon Tree Floating Floor card by Fran Sabad. (See it here: Floating Floor Santa Scene) I love how Fran added the little stamped Santa and Rudolph in front of the trees. Fran used the same scoring measurements with the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Pop 'n Cuts Base and it worked perfectly.
