Summer on the Patio, Clearly!

OK, this is my last clear card stock creation for a while! I am just loving this this crystal clear card stock with the new releases though! I cut and scored my piece to create a box, but without a back! The white stamped card stock completes the box back. I wanted a window look to this card, so hence the valance! Using the threading water punch for edging, and Sugared Basic Grey DP to coordinate with the Copic colored images! I had a super hard time getting a good photo, with the glare and shadows! Sorry!

Close up view of coloring! Another perk with FLOURISHES new release, SUMMER ON THE PATIO, is you get the small chair in two positions! One facing left and one facing right for easy stamping! The creation had too much empty space at the bottom so I added sheer ribbon from Michaels, a button from my button jar, created a tag, and cut out a copic colored topiary from FLOURISHES Siberian Iris stamp set.

This concludes my clear card stock creations this week! LOL, I hope you have enjoyed them and be sure to keep checking out all the other design team creations with FLOURISHES products!

Julie, Leslie, Susan, Faith, Linda, Sharon, Nancy.

THANKS so much for celebrating with me this week! I love working with FLOURISHES clear stamps and products and hope you have enjoyed these creations! More to come! Take good care, I'll be back on Monday!

Have a blessed weekend!

What a great window you created. Love the valance treatment and the topiary layered "outside the window" on the street! Reminds me of some of the little neighborhood cafes in Paris I was privileged to eat at.

This is such a "neat" scene, I love the look inside the window with the cafe style setting and the awning.
