Peace Window, Art Impressions

Hello friends!  Today on the Art Impressions blog I have two cards featuring the Peace Window.  The Window stamp set line is really fantastic with so many heartfelt sentiments around the windows.

This stamp would be a good one for a sympathy card or for someone that is going through the challenges life can throw at us.  These Window sets help you create beautiful cards that don't take a long time.  I actually made two cards--the sets are so easy to use!

For this card I stamped onto Strathmore Bristol smooth card stock and colored it with various watercolor markers, listed below.  I die cut it out with the largest of the Tag Double Stitched dies.

You might be wondering how I have a layer for the tag since there is only one die of this size in the set.  Here are the steps:
  • Put the tag die onto a piece of card stock and trace around the outside edge of the die with a pencil.
  • The pencil line will be your cut line.
  • Color about ¼" inside your pencil line with a coordinating color.
  • Cut out.  I used my paper trimmer for the straight lines and hand cut the curved corners.
  • Trace the tag hole onto the cut out tag layer and use a hole punch to cut.

Here is my second card.

 I stamped the image onto Strathmore watercolor paper with Versafine ink.  This set is so easy and quick to watercolor.  Just be sure to use a smaller brush.  I used a number 2 round brush and painted it using colors from the Altenew 36 Pan set (colors listed below.)  This was cut out with a Square Double Stitched Die.  I created an ombre wash of blue on a 4" x 5-¼" watercolor paper with a ½" flat brush for the card panel.  I cut it with a Rectangle Double Stitched die.

I always appreciate you stopping by and I thank you!  Have a great week!
