Window Cards

So I saw a window die cut and thought it looked like a fun card project so I bought it and then began exploring what others were doing with it for inspiration.

I really love the dimensional effect of having the window appear open and adding flowers so this is my current summer inspiration. Perhaps it will inspire you, too!

 The flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch and the "hello" is a provo craft die cut

 More MS punches used here...the larger butterflies, the leafy branch behind them and the border on the card below.

 I used a punch to create the little white valance. The scene in the window came from an old calendar.
 I thought the paper dolls look so sweet with the cards, too!

The Belle of the Ball

I've been busy though my blog might not show it! So I will try to share a few of my projects from the past few weeks. These paper dolls have been one of my favorite new designs.

I was asked if I could adapt a ballerina design for a debutante event. So, I was excited to work something fresh. This adaptation would make them standing and could be used as place card holders.

 On my solid color dresses, I alternate the embossed panels with a plain one for contrast and texture.

 I figured I would eventually have someone want some guys to go with the gals so I created a basic fella to accompany the lovely ladies!

 My Paris themed dolls have been very popular
