Tres Chic Windows

Hi Bloggers.

Tonight at 9pm I launch the Spellbinders Diamond Deals on Ideal World. I hope you can join me. There's another show at 11pm (way past my bedtime!). Both shows are scheduled to be with Dean - he's sure to keep me on my toes.

Here's today's card -

I cut 3 windows out of creamy yellow card using the Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Large. I placed a strip of acetate behind the windows. I stamped some dressforms from the Creative Expressions Antique Dressforms Stamp Set onto some white card using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut a border from some Foundations Paper using the Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities die and added it to the top of the creamy yellow card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using coffee archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Three and inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink while still in the die. I threaded some Amber Brown Vintage Ribbon through the tag and wrapped it around the card.

I cut the four smallest of the Rose Creations dies out of white card and inked through the dies with Barn Door Distress Ink. I curled the petals, assembled the flower and popped a pearl in the centre. I cut some leaves out of the green card using the Damask Accents Die Set. I made a second flower and cut another pair of leaves.

I assembled the card as shown and added some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl.

Hope you can join me this evening.

Thanks for stopping by.
