Stampin’ Up! Window Sheet Cards

Hi Everyone!  I wanted to share with you a card that we did at my June Stamp-A-Stack using our Window Sheets.  This card was totally cased from last year’s catalog and I had wanted to make it ever since I saw it.


Isn’t it cool looking?  EVERYONE loved making this card and it’s really neat to see it in person because some elements are on the inside back, some are on the inside front cover, and some are on the front.  Here is a side view so you can see it better:


I thought I would like to make some of these cards to send to some very special people, so I wanted to share with you the cards that I made.  I will have the dimensions listed below also if you would like to make one of these too.

My first card was made using Modern Medley designer paper (and that is what I used for all three).  I used some washi tape behind the butterfly on the front:


My next card was for a dear friend who teaches music, so I used the Music Notes wheel:



My next card was made for a sweet friend and upline, Missy, who has a particular fondness for bees, and our Backyard Basics stamp set with matching framelits dies and Honeycomb embossing folder was perfect for this card!


Here are some other views so hopefully you can see where the different parts of the card are attached to the window sheet:



These window sheet cards turned out really great and I hope they brighten my friends’ day!  If you would like to try one of these window sheet cards yourself, here are the dimensions:

Window sheet (or transparency film):  5-1/4 x 11 – score in half, then fold to get a nice crease (this is a square card and our new envelope maker will be perfect in showing how to make an envelope for this card).

Basic Gray:  5 x 5 – adhere to inside window sheet.

Whisper White – Run largest scallop square framelit die through Big Shot and adhere to Basic Gray square.

Designer Paper:  3-1/2 x 7 – Fold in half and adhere back section to scallop square.   I also cut a piece of Whisper White 3-1/4 x 3-14 and adhered it to the inside to have a solid piece to stamp/write my message.

Daffodil Delight:  Cut out the 3rd smallest die and adhere it on the front piece of your designer paper.

Basic Black: Cut out the 2nd smallest die and adhere this to the back inside of the window sheet – I ran some adhesive and then with the adhesive side UP, placed it on top of the black piece and then just carefully closed the top window sheet on top of it.  Don’t worry that you can see the adhesive through the window sheet because the next layer will cover it.

Daffodil Delight:  Cut out the smallest die and place adhesive on it and then with the top closed, layer it on the Basic Black piece (which is on the other side of the front).  Now you can pop your butterfly or bee or other image on top to complete your card.

I hope you give one of these cards a try.  I love how SU gives me samples and ideas on how to use the products in the catalog in ways I wouldn’t have thought of!

Stampin’ Hugs!

Hi Everyone! I’ve had a lot of interest in my Framed Art classes. First, these classes are designed where you can hang up a frame and just make a new insert to put in it every month. Every month, I will be designing a new insert with ideas on how to mix some new with the old – a great way to use your punches, scraps of card stock and designer paper, ribbon, stamps, techniques – the possibilities are endless! Here are some pictures using this project in two different ways – you decide which frame and what way you like best – let me know! Here is my first design. It was spaced out to fit in a frame measuring 8 x 10:

HOWEVER, the frame that I have hanging on my wall in my home is larger than that, so using our 12 x 12 textured paper, I just layered the very vanilla, basic black, and then very vanilla again to create a matting effect and then placed the EXACT same squares as the 8 x 10 into my larger frame and spaced them accordingly to create this look:

Gives it a whole different look – so, better on the pretty in pink background, or the very vanilla? Let me know what YOU think! Now I can’t wait to start creating the insert for March! Check back next month when I’ll post it after my class!

The products used to create February’s Framed Art insert were:
