Window Sheet Cards

Well, I finally had a few minutes to play in my stamp room. I decided to use the new printed Window Sheets from the Occasions Mini. I found these easy to work with and they made the cards look really polished and professional. Here are the 4 samples I made.

This first card was done with Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip, and Parisian Breeze Cardstocks. The Dandelion images are the pre-printed window sheet. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the center of the dandelions. I stamped the greeting onto the window sheet using the White Staz-on ink.


This second card was super simple. I stamped the image from Upsy Daisy onto Pumpkin Pie card. Then I layered the window sheet to the front and added the new Organza Ribbon. The greeting is also stamped directly on the card, not the window sheet.


For the third card I utilized the window sheet for the background. I cut the window sheets into pieces so that I wouldn't waste it under the layering. I have the extra pieces available to use another time.


The last card has the window sheet attached with brads. The shadows in the picture make them look like eyelets, which would work, but not what I used. The card is made from some Designer Cardstock which adds a nice background to the window sheet. I layered the crocheted flowers to the front of the window sheet with Mini Glue Dots.


I loved working with this product. I hope SU will come out with some more designs. The cards come together so fast, which I love.

Beautiful! I've been hesitant to order the window sheets b/c I didn't think I'd know what to do with them. I really appreciate the inspiration and I really love what you did with Upsy Daisy-super clever!
