When I made yesterday's card, I stamped the image first then used the 1" square punch to cut squares out of the stamped image before arranging into a 'window'. Today's card is different: this time I made a window template using the punch then sponged and stamped the scene into it.
The trees are stamped with the fir tree from Stampin' Up's wonderful Lovely as a Tree stamp set. Every year I bring this gorgeous set out to make at least one new Christmas card design! Can you see the snow? I dotted it on using the new Stampin' Chalk Marker, a gorgeous opaque white permanent marker - love this!
Here's my little robin. I inked him up in a Baked Brown Sugar ink pad, added markings to the rubber with a Crumb Cake marker and his bright chest with Tangerine Tango ink applied with a sponge dauber. He's been cut out using my sharp paper snips. You may wonder what on earth he's doing indoors... well, it's his house of course!
I adore the tickets in the That's the Ticket stamp set. There's a handy coordinating punch and you can punch the tickets out and use them as sentiments or tags. This one has been cut out using the coordinating ticket punch, stuck onto the card front and a staple added for embellishment.
