Simon Says Stamp | Day & Night Scene Window Cards | Video

Hello and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! Today I am creating with Simon’s Window Box Blooms stamp set and I have 2 cards to share featuring a slightly different take on this stamp set.

When I first saw this stamp set I had the idea to create a card and feature something outside the window. This stamp set is designed so that you are looking at the window from the outside. I wanted to use this product differently as if I was looking at the window from the inside and thus seeing the outside world.

NIGHT TIME SCENE WINDOW CARD

First, I wanted to make a nighttime sky with constellations. I pre-cut a panel of Simon’s 130lb Mega Thick cardstock and foiled Spellbinders’ Celestial Zodiac constellations in Polished Brass Foil.

To add color to my night sky, I ink blended shades of blue with Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, and Hero Arts Navy inks. I used a damp cloth to wipe the ink off the foiled sections and that restored the shine on the foil. I also sprayed the background with Hero Arts Frost Shimmer spray to add a bit of shine and sparkle.

The stamp and the coordinating die in the Window Box Blooms set is quite small. It isn’t really large enough to show a lot of this background. But the shape of the window is easy to stretch so you can create a much larger window for your card.

I die-cut 4 pieces out of blue cardstock and 2 pieces (connectors), out of white. I trimmed the white pieces and used those to adhere the 2 blue pieces together to make one taller window. I made two larger windows using this trick and next, I connected them from the back using foam adhesive squares, I just added some in the middle where the two windows touched. I added more foam adhesive around the perimeter to be able to pop this die-cut up onto my card. I used scissors and trimmed the excess paper off leaving a beautiful window with a night sky background outside. So cool!

I adhered the window onto a dark blue cardstock panel and added a simple “thinking of you” sentiment stamped in black, along with some sequins scattered around the background.

My next card features a daytime view from the window. I created an ink blended background using my angled ink blending technique (I have it in another video recently, do check it out). Next, I stamped a tree silhouette in black ink over the background.

I created another double window using the same trick and adhered it over the ink blending. I trimmed it all out and adhered onto a cream panel, cut to 4 x 5 1/4” which was foam mounted onto an A2 white card base. I stamped a birthday sentiment and foam mounted that panel onto the card.
