Clear and Convincing Window Sheets

Stampin up printed window sheets stems

I'm convinced that Stampin' Up!'s Printed Window Sheets are "clearly" a wonderful addition to the new Occasions Mini catalog.  Two 8.5 x 11 sheets offer options for eight 4.25 x 5.5 card fronts or portions could be cropped or die cut for unique "see through" card elements.

I layered the white stem window sheet over a sweet Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette polka dot pattern from Bella Rose Designer Series Paper.  TIP:  I adhered the window sheet with Mini Glue Dots on the left side, hidden under the Pink Pirouette Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.  

On the right top,  I used  5/16" Jumbo Brads (Whisper White) as my anchors and an itty bitty tidbit of Snail adhesive to lock down the right bottom corner (hidden below one of the stems).  Very sneaky.

The Chocolate Chip sentiment from Sweet Little Sentiments (Hostess Level I) was stamped on Pink Pirouette.  Using Stampin' Up!'s Chocolate Chip Marker, I dotted an accent border.

Stampin up printed window sheets envelope

Here's a cool idea I brought back from
Stampin' Up!'s Minneapolis Regionals this past weekend.  For an easy
way to line envelopes, simply cut patterned paper (Bella Rose Designer
Series Paper used here) a smidge less wide than your envelope (so you
can slip it inside) and taller than the flap. 

TIP:  Actually, you can get away with making
it shorter than the full flap height as long as the bottom tucks into the envelope
hidden from sight.   Moisten/lick the adhesive on the envelope flap and
adhere to the back of the Designer Series Paper.  You won't need any
more adhesive.  Fold and score.  Flip over the envelope and trim away the excess 
Designer Paper from the flap. You'll need to add new adhesive to the flap when you enclose the card.

For another neat way to line a envelope, check out these handy tips from from my Stampin' Pretty Pal, Carrie Fitch.

  7. Pretty envelopes make such a huge difference! I always get oohs and aahs when I bother making one to match with my card.
    Great way to use paper leftovers, too…
