Pals Paper Arts-PPA102

How do you spend your summer days?  Let those easy living days inspire you to create this week at Pals Paper Arts!  Draw your inspiration from their cool photo or from whatever says summer to you!   Join in the summer fun at PPA!

I love looking out of my window and peeking at the beauty of Mother Nature. I decided to create a window to recreate what I see:

Using your "Small Square Punch" makes this task so easy to accomplish. I made very light pencil marks so that I had a guide to follow in keeping my squares straight and lined up.

Make your own curtain by using the "Tasteful Trim Die". I added two strips of the scallop and used "Stampin' Dimensionals" between the 2 strips for curtain height. Decorate the top by adding a few "Rhinestone Jewels":

I stamped the greenery twice by using my "Stamp-a-ma-jig". First in "Certainly Celery Ink" and scoot over just a little with "Old Olive Ink". Add a few flowers with "Concord Crush Ink" and add "Rhinestone Jewels" to the center of each flower.
Card Supplies:
  •  Cardstock: Confetti White
  • DSP: In-Color Paper Pack
  • Inks: Concord Crush, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
  • Stamp Sets: Just Believe, Heard from the Heart
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tools: BigShot, Small Square Punch, Tasteful Trim Die, Stampin' Dimensionals

One of my favorite passions is gardening. We constructed a new home 2 years ago and have a 2 acre lot full of trees, flower gardens and of course our very own vegetable garden. I leave you today with photo's of some of the flowers in my gardens:
