Another Window Scene


We all love creating cards with the Poppy Stamps "Grand Madison Window" (815) and the "Grand Madison Flower Box" (821).  I have designed this window scene using new stamps Joan's Gardens now carries by "Art Impressions".  The trees are item # (UMF894) and the rocks/grass item # (UMG689).  The trees were colored by coloring directly on the rubber stamp then spritzing lightly before stamping.  The rocks were stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers. Joan has a lot of different Art Impressions stamps that are great for creating scenes behind this fun window die.  She will be posting these new stamps Sunday.

The window and flower box were die cut using ivory card stock and sponged with "Antique Linen" Distress Ink.  The flower box was attached with dimensional tape over the lower portion of the window.  The greenery I used is the Memory Box "Fauntleroy Crest" (98222) die.  This is a beautiful leafy flourish and I put the middle of this die  cut behind and window box to let the leaves trail along the outside.  I then die cut a second "Fauntleroy Crest" and cut it apart to tuck it in under portions of the other one.  I used tiny flowers from a box of previously punched flowers to add color to the vine.  Stickles was used in the center of each flower.  A few pieces of the Martha Stewart "branch" were tucked in behind the small flowers.  

The design paper I used is from the Kaiser Craft "Lilac Avenue Collection" 6" pack.  The sentiment used is from the JustRite "Starburst Medallion Labels" stamp set.  The butterfly is one of the Cheery Lynn "Mini Butterflies" (DL112).  On the left side I attached three purple buttons.  I decided to add one of  the small punched flowers in the center of each button.  Yellow Stickles was put in the center of each flower.

All the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

I hope you are having a great weekend.

Your cards are gorgeous, Selma, and I love the scenes you create. One question, what size is your card base? The Grand Window die looks like it's too big for a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent.
