INK16 Holiday Stylin
« on: October 15, 2016, 12:54:35 AM »
Recently I have seen several winter holiday cards across blogland with a cut-out window.  So I thought it would be a fun challenge.

Challenge basics:  create a circle cut-out through your cardís front cover.  This provides three surfaces for players to enjoy playing with some your favorite products and tools.  This includes designing the card cover; attachments to the inside of the circle opening and a background inside the cover.  The background will also provide full use of the inside right panel for a greeting.  Please include some stamping on your card.

Cards for this challenge can be combined with 2 other challenges that allow for such a combination.

Please place a photo of your finished card in the gallery and then add a link on this thread along with any suggestions or thoughts if you would repeat making such a card.

This challenge will remain open until the close of Inktoberfest16 your time.  I will select a  RAK winner with a random drawing of all players based on the number of each playerís entries.

Have Fun!..Jan

This sounds fun. I do not usually do this kind of card, but I will give it a try!

Thanks so much for hosting!

I think I understand what you want, I don't do many window cards either so this will be fun

That makes 3 of use who don't do window cards.  I always love trying something new.

Do you want us to use a label when posting in the gallery?

Thanks so much for sharing the link and video, I too am a visual person and was thinking you wanted a whole totally cut through the front and the scene to be partly on the inside but then you said you could still write a message on the inside so I couldn't figure out how that was going to work, LOL!

Thanks for the video.  I was thinking the same thing as Connie.  Plus, I got 2 great ideas from the video - using an acrylic block to press down when gluing and putting tape around the magnets for the Misti to give you a tab for picking them up.  The magnet thing is just genius. 

And I revise my earlier statement, I have done this type of window card and I really like them.   And I have some ideas for this one.

Glad the sample and video are helpful!  Most of the posting I am seeing are smaller sized circle cutouts. I think that's because a couple stamp companies have released new small stamps (Hero Arts and I think Lawn Fawn).  As I added below feel free to adjust your work to fit the products you already have.  Have fun today!...Jan

Here is my entry. I reread the instructions and I saw you said to cut a circle. I used a different shape in order to get my Christmas tree die in it. If you want me to make just a circle I can do another one. I enjoyed this challenge.

I used one of my warm challenge backgrounds on this card. The cardinal is a stamp I colored with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut to add to the card.

Hi April!  Your card is beautiful!  It definitely qualifies for this challenge.  As I said in my last post below you can change product suggestions to use what works from your collection.  I was glad to see the tree die cut too since I have one on order and been waiting a long time for it to arrive.  Also checkout the details to be included in the 2nd chance RAK drawing on the Warm-Up post.  Thanks for playing!...Jan

Hope this the look you wanted.  Haven't many cutting dies yet.  Only had machine about a month.
So I stenciled, and painted stenciling as my bottom layer.
