Lovely Window Box....

Hi Poppystamps friends! It's the time to start a new week and time to showcase some of our brand new dies! It is so much fun to work with the new products and mix and match everything. The window dies were a big hit and now there are window boxes and flowers to put with them! Awesome! The possibilities really are endless.

Here's the card for today:

Here are all the dies used to make this card. A full supply list with each die is at the bottom of the post. I cut the window box out of some Memory Box 6x6 paper - and chose a piece that looked like a worn in planter. For the flowers I die cut green paper and yellow paper and pieced them together for a sunny row of flowers. You could also die cut this image from white paper and color the stems and flowers with markers.

In order to get the flower patch to stay in one solid piece, put your paper off the edge of the die cutting plate. I happen to use a Cuttlebug machine. See how the bottom of the stems are hanging over? If you don't do this, the flowers will come apart - which is fine too - you can just glue them in place later.

After die cutting, you can pop the flowers forward and cut behind them for a strip to mount on the back of the window box.

Here is the pretty little row of flowers in their box! I cut an ivy tendril die and put it on the front too. More is more, right?

For good measure...I had to put a bird on it! This is our new Nested Bird die. I added a bit more ivy tendril to the top of the window. I stamped some branches in versamark ink on the kraft card base.

I chose some other Memory Box 6x6 paper to put inside the window - I wanted it to look like wallpaper inside the house.

This makes me think of Spring and getting seeds started. I love the window frame dies and now the window boxes are a great addition. I can envision a planter full of easter eggs[or bunnies].

Great tip for the flowers as it was a struggle to get them off a well used plate for my Big Kick!

This is absolutely adorable. Thanks for the great tip about how to keep the flowers together. I glued them on when I used them recently. I love your bird. I recen;ty got it but haven't used it yet. I thought it would be perfect to use with the Twigs and Berries die. I love the designer paper in the background.

Your window looks more detailed than mine. How did you layer the die ?

The flowers and the bird added life to your window design. The earth colors coordinated with each other perfectly - brilliant choice, I might say. The color of the bird reminded me of my Uncle's Macaw. You'll never pass his windows without noticing it.

Hello, I am trying to find somewhere I can order the window box, but they are all out f stock. Will you be manufacturing soon?? Where can I find them?
