A farewell to the Cottage Window...


The Cottage Window stamp set (127280w/127282c)  is one that we'll be saying "good-bye" to at the end of this month, alas!  I love how evocative the idea of an open window is, and while the set has several cute images to stamp in the window, here I went with some brayer technique and the Lovely as a Tree set (115026w/127793c).

To make the window,  cut a 2 x 2-1/2" rectangle of Glossy White card stock (also a discontinuing item, 102599) and ink it entirely with Daffodil Delight and a brayer.  Once dry, punch a sticky side of a post-it note with a 3/8" circle (from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack 118309) and mask your setting sun. Brayer again, this time using Pumpkin Pie ink.  Peel off post-it mask and voila! A golden sunset!  Stamp your trees over the sunset, lightly dab on some little green leaves with the brush end of a Garden Green Stampin' Write marker if it's spring time in your window, and adhere cut out stamped window frame with Stampin' Dimensionals, trim excess scenery from around the window frame and adhere to card front.  

The sentiment comes from the Trust God set (126700w/126702c)
The card base is Lucky Limeaid, accent color is Regal Rose.  Both colors retire at the end of the month as well!  The background card stock is Very Vanilla, and the Window frame is stamped in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake card stock.  The sentiment was punched out with the Extra Large Oval punch (119859) and backed on the Decorative Label punch (120907).

Enjoy!

All the items from this card can be ordered from my Stampin' Up website www.creativeflare.stampinup.net
