CCMC 223 Sketch

Good morning! It’s Thursday and we know what that means… tomorrow is Friday! I’m feeling a little better than I have, hopefully that means I’m nearing the end of the cold. I have a meeting out east tonight and a busy weekend ahead of me. I hope that the cold is almost over!

Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week the lovely ladies have given us this sketch…

I decided that I wanted to try something a little different. In the latest issue of the Demonstrator magazine, Stampin’ Success, they stamped on a Window Sheet with White Staz-On so I decided I would give that a try with a little twist. The base of my card is Naturals White Card Stock. I cut a smaller piece of the same card stock and used some Twitterpated Designer Series Paper for the diagonal strip and some Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon across the top of that. The greeting is stamped in Midnight Muse and is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set. A Vintage Faceted Designer Button with a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper in the center completes that layer. The window that I created to the left is Midnight Muse. The base layer is stamped with the Illuminate Glimmer Pad using the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set. I stamped images from the same set in White Staz-On on a piece of Window Sheet and cut out a frame of Midnight Muse to go over the top. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the framed piece. I love the way the snowflakes look stamped in the Illuminate Glimmer and White Staz-On layered on top of one another. You can see the effect a little better in the second picture. I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. Be sure to hop on over and check out the other Design Team’s cards and post one of your own for us to see. Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!

  1. this is such a pretty card – i have the illuminate pad but haven’t used it yet. (I know…bad of me) I hope your cold is better – i have the same thing right now…just want it gone. Feel better.

    1. Thank you very much MaryJo! I haven’t used it as much because I find it takes a long time to dry. When you use yours, let me know how it goes. My cold is getting better, I hope that yours is too. Have a great day!

  2. This is such a cool technique!! Love the stamped window sheet! Such depth and dimension! The button is the perfect accent!

  3. I’ve got a bad cold too, Jason – 11 days and I’m SO sick of it! Anyway, how did you cut out your frame? I’m exacto-knife challenged…. LOVE your card and your blog is so inspirational!!

    1. Thanks Susan! I guess it’s cold season. ;-(

      I used my Paper Trimmer to cut out the frame, I’ll a little exacto knife challenged too. So glad you enjoy my posts. Have a great day. šŸ˜‰


  4. Wow Justin, what a great card! I absolutely love the effect you’ve created with the window sheets! Maybe I’ll be brave enough and give it a try!
