Bella in the Window

Stampin up window girl
She's just the cutest.  This little gal is perched on the window of one of my favorite stamp sets for Stampin' Up!'s Fall/Winter catalog (available Aug. 11), Window Dressing (Hostess Level 3).  She's stamped in Close to Cocoa, dolled up with a Blender Pen (Kiwi Kiss for her bow and Pink Pirouette cheeks) and snipped out to land on a Stampin' Dimensional (for ideal window watching).

The window is first stamped in Close to Cocoa on Whisper White and colored using a Blender Pen and Cameo Coral Ink.  The window is stamped a second time on Bella Rose Designer Series Paper (also available Aug. 11).  I snipped out the window centers to create the wallpaper in her window. TIP:  Please don't feel you need to combine the new In Colors solely with each other . . . there are 48 Stampin' Up! colors outside of the In Colors (like Cameo Coral) . . . all ready to pair up for a happy marriage. 

The layout is inspired by this fabulous design by my talented friend Silke of My Life.  I layered the main image on Kiwi Kiss card stock and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals on layers of Whisper White (embossed with a Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder) and Cameo Coral.

The 4.25 x 5.5 Whisper White card base is covered by the Bella Rose Designer Series polka dot.  TIP:  For a fun variation, this layer could be a contrasting pattern with the wallpaper in the window (or vice versa).  There are some wonderful flower patterns in Bella Rose that would be charming.  Today my mood was more monochromatic.

The "thank you" sentiment is from Wow Flowers.  I added a 1/4" circle of Cameo Coal Textured card stock to the center.   It's shaped up with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch, followed by a 1 3/8" Circle Punch and Close to Cocoa Scalloped Circle.

She's watching you 🙂

    Very sweet! I’m so glad SU brought another pieces set, like Loads of Love, etc that has such fun alternatives for both coloring and paper piecing. Love the polka dot bg in the little girl’s window!
