Window on the World

Was at a recent garage sale and picked up this stamp set - Window on the World - from StampinUP.  This set will become a favorite of mine, I can already tell.  I stamped the window and pumpkin, colored it in Copics and chalk and then cut the window out.  Then I cut light tan paper and scored it at half inch intervals lengthwise.  Then scored it randomly horizontally so that it appears that it is planks of wood.  I sponged the whole front in light brown and then went back with a gold pen and put dots on each end of the planks, as you can see in the close up of the second photo.  Stamped some flowers and taped the window on the planks.  I think it turned out kinda neat and love this stamp and all the possibilities of what can be sitting in the window.  Be prepared, there will be a lot more cards made with this stamp set!

Stamp Club Cards - Oct/Nov 2012

Just love all the cards that we always make in our Stamp Club!  Below are the cards that were made in October and November.
 Peace card was so simple and elegant!                          Leaf card is my favorite!

 Christmas cards - never can have too many - love the buckle on the Santa one.

Sunflower was to be all brown, but needed a card that was brighter so sponged yellow around the flower - used yellow Stickles in the center of the flower.  Classic Christmas tree, love the brown 'wood' background!

Blue card is actually a large sunflower, same as yellow one above, but only half of it is stamped and then cut in thirds.  Love how it all coordinates together.  And another simple Christmas card - just four decorative pieces of paper for the front of the card and then Joy in the center.

Orange Lilly

This card is made from a digital stamp that I have had for a while.  It is colored with Copics, I think I like to color more than anything!  There are many layers to this card, which I love to do also, especially when you can find papers instead of cardstock so the card is not so heavy.  Has orange Stickles on the lily.  Turned out to be a bright, cheery card!
