A treat today: TWO videos!
Wish Big and Mini Window Dies
This hippo is the BESTEST, isn’t he?!? He looks positively puzzled…which is my expression half the time! lol. And he’s got a sweet little birdie buddy to hang out with – which I also love, two friends who are different from each other but friends nonetheless. Our world can use more of that!
For my project, I created a watercolored one-layer card, and that big green balloon in the middle is a window peeking to the inside. Cuteness! I love that the die set has windows of all sizes – and even one that opens in the middle. Darling idea!
Here’s a peek with the window open…the “to you” is on the back of the window that opens, and that cake peeks through from the inside of the card. For those that noticed the oops: my hand landed in that paint! Argh. I turned off the camera thinking I might have to start over. But – I put a lot of water on it, dabbed it off, more water, more dabbing.
And here’s that cake on the inside. I love making cards with a treat inside! (And now I seriously want some chocolate cake!)

Bold Blossom dies and stamps
And now for some dies! As you know, I like to share ideas for those who don’t like to color – or who are coloring-challenged. This video shows both the easy way – stop before you get to the harder part – or doing more coloring to make the flowers even more dimensional. Either works great! And in addition to the standalone Bold Blossoms dies, there’s a Bold Blooms stamp set shown in the video (used for the sentiment) that has similar flowers, and there’s a die set that matches it. See it all over at Ellen Hutson’s site. Watch the video below or click HERE to watch directly on YouTube!
Bold Blossoms dies are still available but not the stamps. sorry!
