Good Friday morning! The Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window bundle is a cute window stamp and dies bundle that lets you make window themed cards with both stamped and die cut window elements. With these elements, you can make cards featuring an outside window view or an inside window view that shows an outdoor scene. My card shows an outside window view on a stone house that I made with the Stacked Stone background stamp and Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I stamped the Stacked Stone background stamp on Sahara Sand card stock using Sahara Sand ink and ran it through the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. I adhered the panel to a Basic White mat. I used the Window Flower Box dies that come in the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window bundle to cut the window and shutters from Basic White and the sill and shutter hinges from Soft Suede. I adhered the hinges to the shutters with dots of liquid glue.
I used glue dots to adhere a square vellum lace panel behind the window and trimmed the excess with my paper snips. I brushed Sahara Sand ink on a Basic White panel with my blending brush and adhered it behind the window die cut with more glue dots. I trimmed the top corners with my paper snips. Then I popped the window on the panel with dimensionals and adhered the shutters nest to the window with dimensionals and the sill under the window with dimensionals. I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window photopolymer stamp set in Terracotta tile and the leaves in Garden Green on Basic White. I cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the medium pot in Pacific Point and cut it out with the coordinating die.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered it to the panel and adhered the pot next to it. I popped the flowers on the pot with dimensionals and added a Linen bow to the pot and Terracotta Tile butterfly gem to the label. I popped the finished panel on the front of a Misty Moonlight card base wit dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the window from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window stamp set in stamped off Sahara Sand ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the shutter next to it in stamped off Misty Moonlight and stamped the flower and leaves under with stamped off Terracotta Tile and Garden Green. I subtly stamped a few bricks in stamped off Sahara Sand and trimmed the bottom in a Sahara Sand strip that was stamped with the Stacked Stone background stamp like the front. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I used both the die cut and stamped window elements from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Window bundle for today’s card and I love both of the looks. Wouldn’t this make the perfect card to accompany a housewarming gift for a new neighbor?
Note that Terracotta Tile is one of the 2019-2021 In Colors and will be retiring in May, so all the Terracotta Tile papers, inks ribbons and embellishments are on the retiring list with the other 2019-2021 In Color products. In addition, the wood mount Stacked Stone background stamp and the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder are also on the retiring list (luckily the cling mount Stacked Stone background stamp will be returning).
