Good Tuesday morning. My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge to use White, Navy and Olive. I couldn’t resist creating another window card and using this fun BasicGrey pb&j designer paper for the awning. I really love navy and olive together and the white window, flower box and drapes seemed to pop off the solid navy background.
I attached the green pb&j coordinating wallpaper piece to the card base, layered the drapes over it and then assembled the awning and window, I attached the window over the drapes with mounting tape. The drapes were crimped and then cut with scalloped scissors. I think they look so realistic. Don’t look too close as I have them offset a little and one side is wider than the other. LOL!
I attached the flower box with a double layer of mounting tape so it would be extended out a little further than the window. I already had a piece of the grassland border sitting on my table so I decided to cut it and double layer it in the box to fill in the arrangement of foliage. I added the punched fern (I love that fern) and added the tiny navy flowers. I added white liquid pearl to the flower centers and surely wished I hadn’t. The navy flowers looked so dark and I thought the white would add but it turned into a sloppy mess. Oh well….live and learn. I knew before I started it that I shouldn’t do it but did it anyway. Can you relate??
I hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping in today. I really appreciate it.

I just love your blog and can’t wait to see what you’ve done every day. I just wanted to say Thank You so much for always giving instructions, products and comments. They are unbelievably helpful. I, too, purchased liquid pearls and made a mess of a project for the exact same reason. I had used them to make flower centers and every single flower turned out with a sloppy mess. I did my best to follow the directions and they looked okay at first but then puddled out. I threw the bottle away and will never bother to purchase them again. It’s better to use regular pearls, lol! Thank you again for all you do to help everyone get creative!
Les couleurs, la fenêtre et les fleurs.

Wow, another fabulous card! Never thought that navy, white and olive would look so amazing! I always love seeing your projects and am so glad I found your blog! Even though I don’t have a die cut machine, I get so inspired by your ideas!
i love your cards and wait each day to receave them and your white centre is good in the blue flower, sloppyness can be a eye opener.
Another beautiful work!!!
Beautiful card. Love the colors.
Such a cute card. Love the drapes. I’ve been doing a curtain valance, but like the side ones a lot. Edna
Your curtains are fabulous! Love your creations.
Hi Kittie, love this card. Curtains look good to me, normal, you know what I mean. Never tried the liquid pearls but think I will stick with regular pearls themselves. But I really do like this card.Thanks for sharing…..have a good day…hugs
I love your blog too. I can’t wait everyday to see what you’ve come up with. You are so talented. The only problem is, I spent so much money ordering all these templates after seeing your creations. I love the templates and so use them. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativity.
Your work is fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing–I always start my day looking at your blog. You are amazing.
This is adorable! I’ve never seen an awning card before, that’s a really good idea. I just Googled it and there are really cute pink awning cards that look like ice cream shops. I think I will try to make these for my nieces birthday invitations or something.
