Window Box of Flowers



I got a few cards made last week and this one was for the Splitcoaststampers challenge CC488. This is a color challenge.

It took a bit of time to make my flowers but it was fun. The stamp is Make an Impression/Shirley Rainman. I stamped the image, then I punched the flowers with two Punch Bunch punches. One was the sunflower and the middle was a sun punch. I colored the flowers with Copics.

Here is a photo of the stamp from Ebay.





I punched and colored a small bee. You know they love flowers. The window frame was also colored with Copics.  I added some tiny flowers for the wallpaper inside.

I have a book called Punch-Ins/Make an Impression that shows a lot of these stamps and how to make the flowers that coordinate. The designer is Susan Tierney-Cockburn. The sad thing is Punch Bunch is going out of business in December of this year. I bought some of the stamps and punches for other flowers while on my trip to the Atlanta scrapbook stores.

Wow, love the details you put into this piece of art! That is an awesome window stamp. Hmm, might have to ask you about the scrapbooking stores in Atlanta. We are going there in a couple of weeks for a baseball game.

Enjoy this fantastic weather!

Beautiful rustic look to your wonderful card Brenda...Did we move to another state? lol I can't believe we are still in Alabama. Feeling a little like Dorothy in Wizard of Oz...How wonderful you got to go to Atlanta to the stores. I can't even seem to get to Huntsville to Michael's lol....Hugs, joann sassy raggedy

You are using some 'new to me' supplies on this pretty card too. (Then you tell me they're going out of business? What torture!- guess it's just as well though :-)

Your posies adorning the stamped image are so realistic & cheery, I'd like some outside my windows. At least they wouldn't get ants in the dirt! Really pretty card, Miz Brenda. TFS & Hugs
