I am sharing a card I sent to my upline Michelle Last a few weeks ago to say thank you for a lovely evening she'd arranged with myself and a few other team members who help moderate our team Facebook group. 

My role is the creative challenge coordinator for the Pinkies team, so far I've been setting 2 challenges per month for the last 1.5 years now and in that time we've had almost 600 entries. So much inspiration! 

Michelle always arranges an event half way through the Stampin' Up! year to say thank you so this year we spent a fun evening on zoom decorating our Celebrate Today Magnetic Board Kit ❤️

This is the second card out of three cards I've created with the Welcoming Window stamp set and Window Flower Box dies from Stampin' Up!

I am kicking myself for not using this set enough as I thoroughly enjoying creating cards with both the stamps and the dies. It's going to be one of the retiring stamp sets I won't sell as I think it will stand the test of time and will be a key part of my stamp collection - it's perfect for so many occasions.

I love to coordinate my colours so have matched my card base to the colour of my flowers - Polished Pink

I stamped the window, shutters and window ledge in Basic Gray. I've added these die cuts to the Basic White background, which has been embossed with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder using foam dimensionals and foam strips.

The plant pot, leaves and sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set have been stamped in Evening Evergreen.

I've added a scattering of 2021 - 2023 In Colour Jewels in Polished Pink. These are retiring on 2nd May but I've seen some gorgeous replacements for this set of colours and I can't wait to get them!!

Did you know the Welcoming Window stamp set and Window Flower Box dies are retiring from the Stampin' Up! catalogue and are only available until stocks last or until 2nd May 2022. 

If you like any of these sets I would encourage you to place an order before they sell out.
