More Floating Images MIM #89

More Christmas cards, using Nichole's 'window' technique.
Such fun to plan and do!

If you're going to do a window, do a window!
Wanted to try a simple card using a technique I found on folding a half circle to form a tree.
Completely sure everyone but me has done this before!
The window looks out onto a snowy scene.
PTI cardstock, button and ink
Authentique patterned paper

A peek at the inside.
All stamps Papertrey Ink.
Yes, the sentiment is double stamped. Thought it would give it a snowy effect.
One more using the new Pincone stamp and die set.
Will not be putting this stamp set away. Have many plans to use it through the season!

Someone's blog I read said she loved to collect pinecones.
Got me thinking of putting them in the Friendship jar.
Tried the ombre effect on the stamps, with Heather's color embossing technique.
Just be sure to stamp the versamark first, then the color choice.
If you haven't tried this yet, pop on over to Nichole Heady's blog. She's got a great tutorial
on creating a window for your card!


  1. Nancy both cards are beautiful!! The first one, I love the window and the snowy scene on the inside but I have never done the half circle paper made into a tree. The second card, the pinecones are cute in the jar and the pattern paper is pretty. Great colors!

  2. The scene that peeks through the window is beautiful. (Hope that I don't see anything like that for real until Christmas morning!) The shadow stamping of the sentiment is just the right touch for your winter wonderland.

  3. Beautiful cards, Nancy! LOVE your 'real' window :) The outdoor scene is so peaceful,and the tree inside is awesome ~ never saw that half circle technique before...will have to try that-TFS!

  4. Although I love to collect pinecones, I really love your snowy window card. The front is pretty but the inside is amazing. That looks so lovely stamped on green and with the sentiment shadow stamped.

  5. That's where the aurawave and its ability as a TENS painfulness substitute, and since then, the securities industry, but the aurawave price is merely roughly $150 in sum. It is wholly non-invasive and thither are no harmful or toxic face effects, which helps the convalescence sue if the hurting is one of the nearly low-cost products of it's genial.
