More Winter Windows

Good Saturday morning!  I hope you didn’t tire yourself out shopping on Black Friday.  There is no way I would venture out shopping in all those crowds.  I usually do all my Christmas shopping on line.  It is so much easier on the feet.  LOL!

I seem to have gone a little crazy over using my new window die.  I have two winter projects to share today both made with the window die but yet very different. My first was made for the Splitcoaststampers Free For All challenge to create a winter card using black and white with black being the major focus.

I love the stark winter trees in Stampin’ Up!’s Lovely As A Tree set and it seemed perfect to pair with the black window.  I couldn’t resist adding a touch of color with the tiny evergreen wreath with red balls and bow.

I made the tiny wreath using just the top portion of the MS pine branch punch,  I created the tiny wreath ring by cutting into a 3/4” punched circle and cutting out the ring. It’s easier to show than tell.



The tiny three sprig top of the pine branch is just the perfect size for the little wreath.


I clear embossed the red cardstock and punched 1/8” circles for the Christmas balls.

My second project is an actual open window on the front that shows through to the tree scene on the inside.

I used a rectangle Nestabilities just a tiny bit smaller than the window to cut an opening in the card front. I made two windows and put one on the inside to finish the opening nicely.

  1. Just lovely Kittie, I want to say thanks again for all you help about the punch. I am not sure Joann’s posts O/S; they have not replied yet to my query as to post cost – guess they have lots of emails.
    I have that lovely as tree stamp too and love the way you have done it here with the small wreath on the top! thanks again and God bless,

  2. I just recently found your blog and have to tell you that I haven’t been this inspired to stamp in a long time! I’ve purchased several of the dies you use and am having the time of my life crimping trees and making holly boughs on fences and windows! Thank you!

  3. Both of your cards are beautiful, but I do like the open window one the best. Do you mail these cards or hand deliver? I would hate to have any of the wreaths get crushed in the mail.

  4. I love your window cards. I have some files for gothic windows for my Pazzles, but never have used them because I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted to do. You have inspired me to try to use them!

  5. Kittie – I’ve been following your art work for several years and you continue to inspire and impress me. I appreciate your tutorials and your willingness to share with us. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    Thank YOU

  6. As usual, you have outdone yourself. I love the classic black, white and red colour combination of your card. All your cards are so lovely and have such a distinct look to them.I love them all. Thanks for sharing.God bless.
