Welcome Spring Window Card

We have had some very unusually mild weather here in Calgary in the past few weeks. It's making me very hopeful for spring (all though I am afraid to rock the boat so to speak).

That in mind I felt inspired to make something that said "spring". I've been seeing a lot of cards made using the new SU stamps et "Indescribable Gift". It is a lovely spring blossom branch that can be coloured with markers. I don't own it yet but thought I'd create something with spring blossoms.

This is what I came up with (I bet it would look even prettier with the SU stamp):

I don't have any blendabilities (or other alcohol marker). I used my regular SU markers to try an shade the blossoms a little. In actual fact I was not too happy with the results and almost threw the coloured image away when my daughter advised she loved it and would like a card made with it.
So this little gem was born. I do love the window die and think it works really well with this image.

Here is a  peak at the inside of the card, which I made to match.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazill
Ink/Ink Markers: Blushing Bride, Rich Razzelberry - SU, Early Espresso
Stamps: Asian inspired - Fiskars, Easter Blossoms - SU
Embossing folder: Brick - Tim Holtz
Die: Door/Window - Impression Obsession
Misc.: Foam mounting squares, 2 x 1/8" silver brads.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon for some St. Patrick's day creations.


  1. I love the window idea! Very pretty card! You mentioned the milder weather of late, I think that;s because the cold got pushed down to us!! ..... LOL I live in Pennsylvania and it's been freezing down here!!

  2. I love all the details in this card - the brick, the window, the view. So pretty!
