Welcoming Window Bundle with the new 2021-2023 InColors!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a fun and easy Mother’s Day card featuring the Welcoming Window Bundle and the new 2021-2023 In Colors! I have to say, I just love how all of the new In Colors coordinate together!! I wasn’t quite sure if I could incorporate all the new In Colors into this card, but I did, and I am so happy how this card turned out! Just a little die-cutting and a whole lot of stamping makes this card not just for Mother’s Day, but for any occasion with your favorite sentiment!

To create the stamped base layer, first start with a piece of Basic White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used the smaller leaf stamp (2a) in Evening Evergreen ink along the bottom, layering the stamped images to “cover up” the blank spaces for the 2nd step flower stamp. I then stamped the leaf stamp in Soft Succulent ink along the top of the stamped Evening Evergreen leaves and stamped the 2nd step flower stamp (2b) in Polished Pink ink. I stamped the brick stamp in Smoky Slate ink at a diagonal, going up from the “flower bed”, and then continued to stamp each line diagonally, filling in the rest of the background. I then used my Wink of Stella pen on the flowers:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. On Basic White cardstock, stamp the shutter two times and the ledge in Evening Evergreen ink and use the coordinating die to die-cut out.

2. On Basic White cardstock, the window is stamped in Pale Papaya ink and die-cut out with the coordinating die.

3. On Basic White cardstock, the pitcher is stamped in Fresh Freesia ink, die-cut out with the coordinating die, and I used my Wink of Stella pen.

4. From Pale Papaya cardstock, use the fence die from Birthday Chick Dies to die-cut out two pieces.

I used liquid glue to adhere the fence die-cuts to the base layer, trimming off the excess from the end, and placed liquid glue in the middle of the backside to adhere:

I used liquid glue to adhere the shutters, sliding the side along the window a little under the window die-cut, adhered the ledge under the window, and a dimensional to adhere the die-cut pitcher:

This completed piece is adhered to an Evening Evergreen cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ½”, stamp the brick stamp along the bottom in Smoky Slate ink, the small and large planter in Pale Papaya ink, the small over-hanging leaf stamp in Soft Succulent, and the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink:

So, what do you think of the new 2021-2023 In Colors?? They are “soft”, but the really are beautiful colors, it’ll be interesting to see which one ends up being my favorite!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
