Wednesday’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was written by the wonderful Holly McMillen. She showed us how to create a Frosted Window look. For my video sample I chose the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamp set called Poppies & Greetings. The image was stamped twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, once on Neenah Solar White cardstock, once on Vellum paper.  Both were colored with Copic Markers( cardstock: Poppies: R08, R27, R39   Leaves: G21, G24, G28   Poppies Center: C7, C10   Sky: B0000, B000  Vellum: R05, G21, C5). The vellum image was adhered over the cardstock with dimensionals.

A 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ strip of MME Lost & Found Union Square Patterned Paper were adhered to a 4 1/4″ square of the same paper pack. The layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and a window was cut into the center with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The image was adhered behind the window.

A frame was cut with the largest Tear Drop Circle and a Standard Circle Nestabilities die out of black cardstock. The frame was adhered around the window and Baby Bling Rhinestones were added to the frame. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were adhered to the upper right and lower left corner of the layers. A bow was tied out of White Organdy ribbon and adhered to the upper left hand corner.

A sentiment from Poppies & Greetings was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Standard Circle die. The raised part was colored with Copic Marker B0000. The layers were adhered to the card base, Always Artichoke cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.
