Hello weekend and friends! I’m delighted to be a guest for this week’s challenge over at Inspirational Challenges. The theme this time is ‘windows’.
A little ink smooshing and die cutting, oh and white heat embossing on black and this card could really be used for a lot of occasions. I went with belated birthday because that is something I need but rarely have made ahead.
I used Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks for my inky background, just on regular card-stock this time.
I die cut Taylored Expressions In the Garden die from black card-stock three times, layering/gluing them together to get that fun dimensional look we all love.
I layered/taped the smooshed panel to an A2 card-base, Then glued on the black silhouette scene. I die cut the Memory Box Modern Tile die from white card-stock, then added foam mounting strips on all four sides, on the back and adhered it on the top.
I white embossed the sentiment from Taylored Expressions Some Like it Hot stamp set on a black card-stock strip and glued it on last..
I made two enamel dots with Ranger Caribbean Coast Enamel Accents, let them dry and glued them on the sentiment strip.
Thank you so much to Marina and her team for inviting me to guest design for this post. I enjoy challenges and love participating with the Inkspirational challenges when I can. I hope you will take the window challenge! Can’t wait to see what everyone creates!

Very neat Pam! I do hate trying to glue layering pieces together-some glue always squishes out and there I am – cleaning up the mess!!
