What a cool piece Beate has for her inspiration challenge today.


For me this one was all about the windows, the stripes and the polka dots.  My card is made with all Stampin’ Up products.  It was the first that I have played with my new stamp set “Window Dressing” and Designer Series Paper “Maine Blueberry”.   Yeah!  Here is my card.


I first stamped the window image on Whisper White card stock.  Next I stamped the vases.  I then masked the window and vases and sponged in the blue and green to suggest sky and grass.  While masked I also stamped in part of the tree image from the “Nature Silhouettes” set.  I unmasked the image, colored it with SU! markers, cut it out, mounted it on Night of Navy card stock and then cut it out again leaving a Night of Navy border.  The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White card stock.  It was then die cut into a circle.  A slightly larger circle was cut with the Night of Navy card stock and adhered to the back of the sentiment circle.  The window image was then adhered to the front of the sentiment circle.  Then the entire main image was popped up on dimensionals on the designer paper covered card base.

You can visit Beate’s other Inspiration Design Team members’ blogs to see where this piece took them on their creative journey.  Hope you can play along, too!
