Blogging Friends Blog Hop: Grateful Greeting Card Tutorial using Stampin' Up! Happy Scenes Bundle

I want to welcome all of you new visitors to my blog!  Thanks for following along our Hop!  Be sure to Subscribe by clicking "join this site" or "subscribe by email" on the right hand side of my blog so you don't miss out on our Blog Hop next month!  I hope you have been enjoying the Hop so far.  So many fun ideas from so many talented ladies!!!  

This month, our Blog Hop theme is Thanksgiving and Fall.  
I have been having so much fun creating Fall crafts the last few weeks!  I keep reaching for my Happy Scenes stamp set.  It is so fun bundled with the Hearth & Home Framelit Dies.  I just love all of the different window scenes you can create.

Very Vanilla Card Base - 4.25 x 5.5"
Tangelo Twist card stock - 4 x 5.25"
Happy Haunting DSP - 3.75 x 5"

I wanted to make 3 cards so I stamped 4 images to color.  I always like to leave room for mistakes :)  I stamped the image in Basic Black ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  I started coloring my image with Tangelo Twist.

Then I used Mossy Meadow.

and then Blissful Blackberry.

After I finished coloring in my images with my Stampin' Write Markers, I broke out my Sponge Daubers and my Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon Ink Pads.

I love coloring with sponge daubers.  I just love the textured look it gives and each one is different.

I used the Hearth and Home Framelit Dies to cut out the windows from Tangelo Twist card stock.  I used the Venetian Lace Ribbon Trim to create the curtains in the window.

Then I popped the window up with Stampin' Dimensionals and added the word Grateful die cut from Mossy Meadow card stock with the new Fine Tip Glue Pen.

And there's my finished card!  I love the way the curtains turned out!  These window scenes are so fun to make.  I got a lot of Fall use out of this set and I can't wait to start using it for Winter and Christmas projects now!

If you would like to create this card yourself, I will have all the products I used listed at the end of this post with links to my online Stampin' Up! Store.

I hope you enjoyed by card today!  Thank you for stopping by my blog!  If you have any questions or just want to say hi, please leave a comment below!  I love hearing from you!  And, please subscribe if you are new!  I am going to have a giveaway soon to celebrate reaching 100+ Followers on my YouTube Channel!  You won't want to miss it!
