Window Dressing

Published by under cards | Apr 09 2009

Happy Easter stampers!

We are just about to head off for our annual camping-in-the-middle-of-nowhere trip. No running water, no electricity, no phone – love it!!! We come home covered in dirt and smelling of campfire smoke, but with a much greater appreciation for all the comforts of home!

A big "Hello" to all the ladies who joined me last weekend for one of the New Catalogue classes. The catalogue is a BIG HIT – the new stamp sets, accessories and In Colours were given a big thumbs up!

The card above is a fun project we made at Stamp Club, and features the gorgeous Level 3 hostess set called Window Dressing (p22 IB&C).

The window was snipped out and layered over a co-ordinating cardstock panel. We coloured the window with markers, mainly Close To Cocoa (same as the cardstock base) and Creamy Caramel. This was all mounted over the separate ‘windows’ with Stampin’ Dimensionals so that it is very 3D in real life. We scored and folded the shutters a little and even colored the back of the shutters with markers for a more finished look.  The sentiment is from Curvy Verses (p116 IB&C). The background stamp is called Weathered, and was stamped in Versamark on the Cocoa card.

This card was heaps of fun to make and kind of reminds me of a treehouse! I’m thinking of doing a Window Dressing class so stay tuned for more details after Easter.

Hope you have a lovely Easter!

See you next week.
