Taylored Expressions March Spotlights: From My Window


Today is Taylored Expressions' March Spotlight Day and I have two cards to share with you today. It is Designer's Choice today, so I chose to work with the newly released stamp set, From My Window, as well as some new TE dies and cutting plates, Arched Window, Chevron Cutting Plate, and Banner Stacklets 2!


For my first card, I really wanted to the arched window to be the focus and I was so taken with the wonderful starry sky view. I wanted to create something dreamy, and so I sponged some white ink over some deep purple cardstock using a cloud border as a stencil.


Good friends of ours just bought a new house and I wanted to make them a card to help them celebrate. 


I deliberately left the stamped image of the neighborhood uncolored as I liked the crisp, clean look of the card created by the Chevron Cutting Plate. 


The new Banner Stacklets 2 just happens to perfectly frame this pretty window, which has quickly become one of my all-time favorite dies!

BEAN NOTES
Stamps: From My Window (Taylored Epressions); Cardstock: all cardstock from Stampin' Up!; Dies: Arched Window, Banner Stacklets 2, Chevron Cutting Plate, Cloud Border (Taylored Expressions)
