Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am going to introduce you to the lovely Welcoming Window. This stamp set is more appropriate than ever! How we would all love to welcome people to our homes right now! Since that is not possible, we need to send a card that says “wish our paths would cross more often”. There is also a beautiful “Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day.” and several other sayings in a very nice font.
Welcoming Window for Prime Time
I inked up this stamp set for the first time for my exclusive Prime Time with The Pampered Stamper group yesterday. Maybe you already know that I created this group as a response to COVID when I could no longer do my regular coffee and a card classes. It has become a wonderful personal space for a nice group of people. Each week I do a video tutorial and I send a prize to someone. Every month there is a free pdf tutorial so there is amazing value to this group. It costs only $10 a month to join and you can sign up here if you want to join in on the fun!
Here is the inside of one of the cards. My cards are quite simple but you can definitely create quite the scene with all the pots and vases and flowers. Be sure to have a good play with different colours and combinations, it’s a lot of fun to do that.
My Best Tip for This Set
I have a confession to make. When I see a lot of dies in a stamp set bundle I can be intimidated. That is why I waited to buy this set. When I finally went to ink it up I do what I usually do with new product. I stamped all the images in a few different colours to see what I liked best. Cut out all the dies in a few colours and then lay them all out to be inspired.
I found that when you do this it is not as intimidating. In fact it is a little like playing with a doll house or paper dolls. So much fun to put all the pieces together for something pretty. If you’re not sure how certain stamps or dies go together, you can either experiment or you can do a Google search and see what other people have made with this bundle. For instance, I noticed that people used the hinges for the shutters both ways. This is art! No right or wrong.
I wasn’t sure of the certainty of travel so I didn’t post my usual Happy Mail in Holland contest. Now I think it might be a lot of fun. You can choose to send me mail in Holland as I will be here until May 25 or you can send it to my home in Chatham so I can have happy mail when I get home. Of course there will be a prize drawn from all who participate. My address in Holland is:
Bloemenlaan 6 ‘s-Gravenzande 2691JC The Netherlands
In Canada: 81 Delaware Avenue, Chatham, Ontario N7L 2W3 Canada
Thanks so much for joining me today. Be sure to check out my business Facebook page as I am posting daily videos from my experiences here in Holland. I hope you have a super day. Please remember that if you are local, there are new annual catalogs on the tote on my front porch. Help yourself!
