Spring Window

Father Weather is very confused lately in Estonia. You'll go to sleep at Spring, and woke up at Winter. Followed by Autumn and then it's Spring again. Go figure... My card is inspired by this crazy weather.

I used beautiful new stamp set named Spring Window #704. It's absolutely gorgeous! I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers.

This image is fabulous all by it self, so I didn't want to add many embellishments to the card. I just used branch and blooms die cut with Spellbinders Sherry Blossoms dies. I added dots with Buttercup Liquid Pearls to the center of each blossom.

Edges of the matting layers are covered with 1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. Places where matting layer shows through the ripped pattern paper are covered with 3/4" Double-Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. After top layers was adhered to the center of matting layers I covered rest of the  tape with Fascination glitter.
I sprinkled some Super Thick White embossing powder here and there and heated them with heat tool from underneath the paper.

Sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink and its heat embossed with Fiery Brown EP. Sentiment is popped up from the center with foam tape and glued down from the both ends.

If I use my imagination, I can see all seasons represented on this card: shabby pattern paper is for Autumn; White EP as snow for Winter; Image and branch with blooms for spring; and I can see even summer from blue glitter as sparkling water.

  1. Your weather sounds rather like ours Eret, it was so cold at Easter, then sunny for a few days and today it's like winter again. But your card is beautifully Summery and very pretty.

    Hope you have a good weekend.
