Tonight I made a card for Technique Tuesday. This week's technique is the stamped punched window. I was so glad I could play because I love the look of this recessed window! There's still time to play so head on over!
I am also entering this card at Simon Says Stamp Challenge-Anything Goes!
Here's my card.
Mynette gives really good instructions on how to do this technique, but I'll show you some of the things I did. A long time ago before Cricuts and Silhouette's, there was Coluzzle a manual cutting system from Provo Craft. I still use mine because it allows complete control over where you want to cut. So I used distress inks, Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans, to make the colors on this white cardstock. Then I cut the tag out using my Coluzzle pen (that where the blade is for cutting) and this template.
Then I ran the paper minus the tag through the Cuttlebug using a Tim Holtz texture fade. I dabbed silver ink over the swirls to make them pop.
Here it is without the tag.
Here is my charm. I used some alcohol inks and spruced it up a bit.
The sentiment is from my Sentiments Exactly. It's heat embossed in white. The birds are a Washi tape by Recollections.
Here's my card again. Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...try a new technique!
