Blooming Violets

Good Tuesday morning.  I have a see thru window project to share with you today but the main focus is the Blooming Violets along the fence line.

I started by cutting two windows and using one as a template to draw lines on the card base with a pencil and cutting an opening with my kraft knife. I attached the Lacy Curtains to the backside of one of the windows, added mounting tape and attached over the opening on the inside of the card base. I attached the outside window flat over the opening so it wouldn’t interfere with the popped up fence. Using my mega mount I created the inside background using the Impression Obsession Tiny Flowers Cover a Card stamp.

I cut the violet using white cardstock and sponged with dusty concord distress ink. Using white with the purple ink allowed the tiny embossed veins in the flower to show.  I formed the flowers and foliage using my stylus and mat and assembled them using glossy accents.  I attached the Picket Fence under the window with mounting tape and attached the flowers with glossy accents. I created one extra set of flowers  and added the single flowerheads along with some green flower heads to fill for a more natural flower line.  KC Memory Box Blooming Violet 1 right

  1. Fabulous violets and scene, I was thinking they made the Lacey curtains just for you, to embellish your beautiful window scenes. Thanks so much for sharing. I look forward to seeing your projects every day.

  2. Beauuuutiful!! You made the flowers look real, Kittie. And wow, the curtain and the background stamp are just awesome. A simple but such an adorable card. Thanks Kittie for sharing.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I love all your creations, as they are more than cards. Am off to look through some of your past posts.

  4. OH! love those little violets, used to have many of these in yards, now not seen so much. that gorgeous window and texture curtains, madison widow and background makes them alive, ready to pick. …..have a good day.

  5. Oh my! This is so lovely. The piercing in the curtains is such a nice touch, and I love the vintage “wallpaper” peeping through the curtains. Those cheery violets blooming outside the window give me hope that spring will surely return!
