Inspired by JulieHRR

May 16th, 2011

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine started out with my stamp class on Friday evening and ended with a fun tradition at our church of celebrating Jesus’ resurrection with a fish taco supper last night. YUM!  I’m here today to share one of the cards we created in my class Friday night.  The theme of class was It’s a Frame Up!  We explored different ways to frame images and sentiments on our cards such as Faux Framing (you can see that card in this post), Nestie Frames (to be shared later this week), and Recessed Windows.

It was serendipity when my friend JulieHRR posted this adorable Recessed Window on her blog last week.  Initially I planned to just take loose inspiration from it, but as I sat down to work I found myself CASEing it fairly closely.  I mean, really…who am I to mess with the perfection that is Her Royal Rubberness?!?  Well, ok, I did add a celery base and that large flower embellishment…’cause you know me…can’t leave well-enough alone.  *snort*

So here’s my version:

My card features the Taylored Expressions Stamp Set Garden Party Blooms (Plus Garden Party Critters for the sentiment.)  The large blue flower was die cut with the coordinating Taylored Die set. The scallop border is the TE Medium Scallop Border die.  Colors used are Real Red, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Whisper White.  It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the white panel is up on foam tape, so the sentiment is recessed in the punched window.  For a how-to, I refer you to Julie’s awesome quick video.  It’s really an easy technique that packs a punch!

Thanks for stopping by!
