For this month's Impression Obsession Design Team Challenge - the rule was to use "stamps only" That means no decorative paper, no rub-ons, BUT embellishments were allowed!
So.... I came up with this window card showcasing one of the soon to be released IO stamps for summer - Cupcakes anyone? This stamp is so yummy! The window was created with the classic oval Nestabilities. I layered up the front of the card with a red layer on the lower half of the card and scalloped strip and THEN cut out the oval. After laying the main white piece on the red mat on the inside of the card, I stamped the plate of cupcakes to show through the window and started to color it up!
I added some pink chalk around the image to make it glow a bit. I colored the image with watercolor pencils, added some stickles glitter glue, the "You're Sweet" sentiment and that was pretty much it! On the front of the card, I did tie a bit of polka dot red ribbon and added the cutest embellishment. It's a hat pin style embellishment with a fun pink oversized crystal on the top! I love it! I picked up a whole bunch in a handful of colors.
Here's a look at the inside.....
