Stamped Greetings!

ALERT: Heartfelt Creations will be releasing the Create a Window SceneCollection on Thursday, Nov. 25 at 12 Midnight. As a special thank you to our customers, we will be offering some amazing "Black Friday Deals"on this must-have collection!

In preparation for the big release day, I decided to make a window scene card this week. Since I don't have the soon to be released collection yet, I'm using my own personal design for now...

Some of you may know that I went to the Smithsonian American History Museum last Friday for their Annual Teacher Appreciation event and I was inspired by some pop-up and layered books they had on display. I was inspired to make a little scene using one of the books on display. It's a pretty simple accordion folded book with lots of elaborate winter scenery. If you are inspired to make something too, give it a try!

1. Become a Follower if you aren't already.

2. Create anything with a LAYERED WINDOW SCENE! You may use ANY stamps and ANY design.

3. Post a link to your entry below and you'll be in the running for a free BRAND SPANKIN NEW Heartfelt Creation Precut Stamp Set called (Pumpkin/Autumn Vines Precut Set HCPC 3329).
So, here's my creation, done with other sets since I love all things BLUE AND SNOWY!

I modeled this card after a pop up book I saw at the Smithsonian American History Museum. It was a wonderful book full of layers and layers of Ice Skaters and winter scenes. I added only three layers, and instead of doing an accordion fold, I used pop dots to raise my layers.
Here are a few close ups and the DEETS on this project:
The layers...Each layer had some embellishments, so when viewed head on, it creates a whole scene.
Here's a close-up of the BLING, SPARKLE and my coloring.
