Window Christmas Card


Happy Monday to everyone. I cannot believe that it is 5th December already, time is flying so fast. I am always amazed at window scene cards, and I thought I will show you one I have made recently with Newton’s Nook Designs naughty kitty (I just love these images and cannot have enough of them).


First I stamped my image on Bristol Smooth Cardstock and coloured them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then I fussy cut it out. I added some clear shimmer with my Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and some glossy accent on the scarf, nose and head band of the snowman. I also used a black glaze pen on the eyes and buttons.


For the background I sponged distress inks on watercolour cardstock and using a Lawn Fawn background die I die cut the starry sky. I backed it with a metallic white cardstock for some extra shine.


Then I took another piece of watercolour cardstock and using a brick stencil I applied some grey distress ink with a stencil brush for a soft blend. Using a stitched rectangle die and a storybook die from Pretty Pink Posh, I die cut my window and backed it with a piece of acetate.


The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn die, cut from metallic red cardstock. I assembled my window scene using foam tape to have more dimension.


I will play along with this card on the SSS Wednesday Challenge Anything goes and Newtons Nook’s Inky Paws Challenge #38: Color Challenge.

I hope you got inspired and will check on my blog later again,

See you,




Watercolour tags

Good morning,

As we are already in December, it is high time to get started with those tags for the presents. Today I will show you a watercoloured one, using Simon Says Stamp products.


I die cut the tag shape from Bristol Smooth cardstock and the topper from metallic lime green cardstock. I stamped my tree image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I also cut a stitched hole reinforce from a metallic cardstock which goes so well with the embossing powder. I coloured the trees with ZIG clean color real brush markers and I used a Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen at the end to smooth the colours and to add some nice festive shimmer.


I decided not to use a sentiment this time, I felt it is better without.


I am uploading these tags on the SSS Monday Challenge Oh Christmas Tree and on the SSS Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.

I hope you like today’s inspiration and will pop in again soon.

See you,
