Happy Friday morning. I have taken today off from work to celebrate a three day weekend with my husband. Yeah!  Luckily he likes to sleep in so I had plenty of time this morning to make a project to post. 

Before I get started about my card I want to announce the blog candy winner from my Spring Scene CLASSroom tutorial posted last Sunday.


Congratulations to Wanda Williams. I hope you enjoy these dies as much as I do.

This card is absolutely amazing!!! I can’t wait to give it a try myself. Thanks for sharing your awesome talent!

My project today is made using several of the Poppy Stamps dies.  I love the Grand Madison Window and pairing it with the Grand Flower Box.  Add some foliage and flowers and you have a gorgeous card with no stamping involved.

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Free For All Challenge to use at least two different patterns of designer paper. I used one side of a coordinating piece of retired SU paper for the base of the card and  the reverse side for the foliage. There is a little pattern in the green side of the paper  that I thought would look great to show highlights in the foliage.

I punched the MS PATP Eyelet border on a strip of vanilla cardstock, cut to fit and attached to the window and then mounted the window to the card base with mounting tape. I attached the flower box to the window with more mounting tape for added dimension.

I punched and die cut several different shapes of foliage from the green paper and began arranging the window garden.  Glossy Accents is my preferred liquid adhesive for attaching and creating all of my floral projects because it is so quick drying. I first attached inserted a piece of the Grassland Border so there would be some tall springs to attach flowers to.  I then inserted the MS Branch and EK Success Rock Fern foliage and added pieces of the Gentle Leaf and Ivy Tendrils.  I finished by adding lots and lots of tiny pink flowers made with the Fiskars 1/4” Flower punch.  Here’s a closer look.

I love how soft the Ivy Tendrils growing up the window and out of the flower box softens the whole garden scene.
