Balmy Blue Welcoming Window

By | 21/05/2021

This card is similar to one I posted earlier but I have used a different colour combination inspired by a card from Amy Koenders.

As usual, I have tweaked it a little to suit me, and have used Balmy Blue cardstock instead of Seaside Spray, as that is what I had at the time. Have also Gold Embossed the greeting.

You may notice the brick effect on the front is achieved by using 1st and 2nd generation stamping to give a more textured look.

A little two step stamping on the inside just completes this card.

Embossed Welcoming Window

By | 14/05/2021

I am really enjoying playing with this bundle. For today’s card, I am focusing more on the stamping rather than die cuts, although die cutting is still used for this card, cased from the 2021 Mini Catalogue.

The base card is Pool Party and a matching mat of the same colour has been embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. All the other pieces were stamped on Basic White cardstock and then die cut and adhered either directly onto the card, or on dimensionals. I haven’t added any greeting to this card as I feel the front has enough going on without adding any more, but of course, you could add if you wish.

On the inside I have just stamped the a flower pot and flowers directly onto the Basic White cardstock.

Supplies used:
Stamp set: Welcoming Window (154504 – 2021 Mini Catalogue or purchase as part of a bundle 156271 to save 10%)
Cardstock: Basic White, Pool Party
Ink: Sahara Sand, Just Jade, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizazz, Crushed Curry, Old Olive
, Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape
Miscellaneous: Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder, Window Box dies, Multi Purpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals.

Welcoming Window

By | 07/05/2021

Today’s card has been ‘case’d (copy and share everything) from the 2021 Mini Catalogue with a couple of tweaks to make it a little more me.

This card demonstrates the Welcoming Window Bundle beautifully. Die cutting for the window and shutters, and a combination of two step stamping and die cutting for the flowers.

I’ve gold embossed the greeting directly on the to front rather than having a tag, or layer piece of cardstock.

For the inside I have just stamped directly onto the insert which proves that you don’t need to die cut the images for them to still work well.

Supplies used:
Stamp set: Welcoming Window (154504 – 2021 Mini Catalogue or purchase as part of a bundle 156271 to save 10%)
Cardstock: Basic White, Sahara Sand, Vellum, Basic Black, Grey Granite
Ink: Sahara Sand, Versamark, Crushed Curry, Old Olive

Miscellaneous: Gold Embossing Powder, Window Flower Box Dies (154335), Multi Purpose Liquid Glue.
