Spring Inspired Window Scene

Good Sunday morning.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  My husband worked yesterday so I had lots of time to be at my craft desk.  As you know well by now I love making window cards.  I received the new Poppystamps Small Madison Window Set in the mail on Friday.  I couldn’t wait to take it out for a spin.  It is the perfect little set for someone who hasn’t taken the leap into buying window dies yet.  You get the window, shutters, flower/window box, a tiny die full of precious flowers and stems all in the same set.  Poppystamps also created a Large Madison Window Set but it is still on my wish list.  I know, I know!  I have lots of window dies but can a girl ever have too many?

I cut the window, shutters and window box in all white as I wanted to have a completely white palette to allow the flowers, the yellow inside the window and the butterflies to be the main focus. I used the window die as a template to draw lines to cut the opening for the window.  I cut the Impression Obsession Border Duo 1 decorative border and attached them to the back of the window with double stick tape.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the window and attached over top of the window opening.  The shutters were attached with thin strips of mounting tape as well.  I attached the yellow designer paper to the card base with ATG and then attached the whole window base over top of it with mounting tape.

I cut the flowers in pink, yellow and lavender so I could have a springy window box. I formed all the flowers with my tiny tipped stylus and molding pad. I cut the stem section three times and attached the tiny flowers with glossy accents. I applied a 1/4” piece of double stick tape to the back of the window box and attached the stems of flowers.  I cut one Impression Obsession Leafy Branch and attached in behind the flowers to add some height and depth and then attached a few flowers to them as well. I applied a double layer of mounting tape to the back of the window box and attached it to the card base.  I attached three tiny butterflies for the finishing touch.

  1. WOW… I love this card Kittie…. it makes me thing that spring is gonna make it eventually…. I love the colors and window… you know what that means….lol. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity

  2. So refreshing and crisp….love it. I have the original window, window box and shutters dies and I’ve used them many times. I found one of my plain rectangle dies to be the perfect size for cutting the opening for the window. I’m guessing the new set you used is sized more for A2 sized cards…I do have to make at least 5 x 7 sized cards when I use my dies with the shutters, but that’s okay with me. Love your use of white…and your flowers are so cheerful.

  3. Windows Windows Windows…how we love them….I do, as well. And you do them so beautifully…and yes, Miss Kittie you have many many windows….they are always so lovely….I am just getting back to mine…I made so many in the beginning as well.
    I will focus on this card, smell the flowers and feel Spring on its way.

  4. Hello Kittie, thank you for taking the time to leave me a beautiful comment, I feel so honoured that you should do this..
    I have admired your beautiful work for a long long time.
    Your card to-day is stunning, so fresh and spring like, using the small Madison window, I am working on the large one as I type..

  5. While I love all of your beautiful cards, I do admire your window cards. Can you clarify for me/us is this small window die smaller than the previous small madison window die?? Sometimes the die sizes are confusing as to how they fit on a A2 card. Thanks.

    • What a stunning window card Kittie. The white on white really helps to make the flowers and butterflies pop. This card may be 6 years old but it has persuaded me to buy yet another window die. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Oh thank you Kittie. I thought it looked a little smaller but it really is hard to tell in pictures many times to gauge size. Was a bit surprised they used the same name for it which is double confusing. Thank you for taking the time to respond, much appreciated.

  7. Good Afternoon, Kittie. Hurray! I have this window and want to case yours. I love them so much. this is super…. I had to order that cone you used for the bouquet of hearts. See how you inspire me. I get so much joy just looking hear everyday. It’s bright and sunny here today, so the window was a perfect accent for the day, even in January…….have a good week-end. ….LOL

  8. AAAaack! They WOULD come out with these “sets” after I have bought some of the pieces! LOL I’ve been WONDERING what to get for the flowers & leaves….SO THANKFUL there is YOU, KITTIE!!!!!!!!!!! LOL ;)THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)(Of course!)
