Good Sunday morning.  My project today is a whimsical window card made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration site was an Etsy store called {More} Sprinkled Joy and I was inspired by the Ballet Slippers Straws found here.  I recently received the Taylored Expressions Display Window and Window Accessories and thought they would be fun to use with the coordinating Bundle of Joy Dots & Stripes designer paper.

I attached the polka dot paper on the front of the card base with ATG adhesive.  I cut 1/2” strips of cardstock and attached to the lower half of the card to create siding.  I used the window die cut as a template to draw lines on the front to use as a guide to cut the opening and used my craft knife to cut the opening.  I attached the window to the card front with mounting tape.  I attached the shutters and window box with mounting tape.

I cut several small leafy sprigs  and punched lots of tiny 1/8” circles.  I formed the tiny circles into flowers with my small tipped stylus and molding pad and attached to the sprigs with glossy accents.  I tucked the sprigs in behind the window box and attached with glossy accents.

I used antique linen ink and a mini applicator to apply color to the kitty and attached it in the window with glossy accents.

I couldn’t resist sharing this last picture with the low light that created a cozy backdrop for the cat silhouette.

A while back the French Passion Cartes Creatives craft magazine published an interview about my love of paper crafting with several of my projects.  I couldn’t resist sharing these pictures with you.  It was such an honor for me. Too bad I can’t read French.  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Bundle of Joy Dots & Stripes must be retired because I couldn’t find it anywhere to link for you.
