DSP Thru' The Window Video

Hello, Crafters.

I've just uploaded my latest video which shows how I made my three Christmas cards using some of our new Designer Series Paper as the view from the window.

I posted one card yesterday and I'll post the third one tomorrow.

Today's card is number 2 and this is the link: DSP Thru' The Window

I decided to make this one for my video as I wasn't happy with its predecessor, which I'd made using a Basic Black Card Stock card base - see the last photograph, which was taken before I added the cat.

I was happy with the Basic Black but for some reason I'm not too sure of (seemed like a good idea at the time, I suppose! LOL!), I stamped the fir and fir cones onto Basic Grey Card Stock.

It was just so dark I decided to lighten it up by using Basic Grey Card Stock for my card base and Smokey Slate for the window Frame.

I stamped the fir and fir cones on Whisper White Card Stock using our new Basic Black Archival Ink.

I'm really happy with how this card turned out.

In my video, I show how I chose the piece of DSP I used and I applied the same rule to the other two cards.

I wanted the view from the window to look as if the viewer was looking out from the ground floor.

This meant I couldn't allow tree tops appearing from below the window sill.

I added the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the DSP before I adhered it behind the window.

As well as applying glitter to the trees, I also applied a straight line under each tree so they looked grounded and not floating in the air.

To add a bit of character to the cat, I covered him in using Crystal Effects.

I added the white Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper bow above the window after I had finished the video.

The bow die came from the Balloons Framelits Dies.

For the next three days I'll be at the Creative Crafts Show at Sandown - do pop over the the Stampin' Up! stand to say hello if you're planning to visit.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
