Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is Fabulous Flowers. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For anyone who knows me, knows I love love love flowers! I don’t do manicures or pedicures. But, I will buy fresh flowers every week when I cannot grow them myself. Stampin’ Up! does a wondeful job providing many flower options in all their catalogues. I had a hard time narrowing it down to which stamp set I would use. I decided to use the Welcoming Window bundle. It is currently on the retiring list & is available until May 2nd, 2022 or until it is sold out. I love the simpicity of the set & how well it coordinates with so many other Stampin’ Up! products.
Scroll all the way to the bottom of the blog post to see my runner up options.
Step by Step Tutorial
– Begin with a 5 ½ x 8 ½ card base of thick Basic White card stock; scored at the 4 ¼ using a Paper Trimmer
– Use a Paper Trimmer to cut
Basic Grey card stock to 4 x 5 ¼
In Good Taste card stock to 3 ⅞ x 5 ⅛
– Adhere the Basic Grey card stock to the thick Basic White card base using adhesive of choice (I used liquid Tombow glue)
– Adhere the In Good Taste DSP to the Basic Grey card stock
– On a scrap piece of Basic White card stock, stamp the leaves in Garden Green ink & the flowers in Misty Moonlight ink using the Welcoming Window stamp set
– Run the stamped image through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window Flower Box dies (flower)
– On a scrap piece of Cinnamon Cider card stock, stamp the pot in Cinnamon Cider ink using the Welcoming Window stamp set
– Run the stamped image through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window Flower Box dies (pot)
– Run scrap Basic White cardstock through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window Flower Box dies (the window & ledge)
– Run scrap Basic Grey cardstock through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window Flower Box dies (shutters)
– Use a scrap piece of Beauty of the Earth DSP to create the “sky” in the window. Use glue of choice to adhere then fussy cut to fit the window.
– Assemble the window scene using dimensionals
– Stamp sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink. For the avid stamper, I used a Stamparatus to ink the sentiment with Versamark ink. Then, heat set the clear embossing powder using a Heat Tool.
– Run the stamped sentiment through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window Flower Box dies (thin rectangle die). I bet you didn’t see that coming!
– Adhere the senitment using dimensionals
– For the final touch, adhere a scrap piece of Beauty of the Earth DSP to an envelope flap using adhesive of choice (Tombow) then fussy cut.
