Cape Cod Views

Good Monday Morning!
I am on the Dies R Us Blog today!

I have created a couple of cards to share with you today, they feature the Large Madison Window die set by Poppy Stamps.  Unfortunately this particular die set is no longer available.....however you could easily substitute the Small Madison Window also by Poppy Stamps.  The die is just a tad smaller, but the outcome would be the same.
This is the inside view I created.  It simply uses the Window Die.  I created my beadboard by scoring every 1/4 inch using my Scor Pal.  A simple 1/2 inch strip of card stock to create my chair rail.  Anchor 'wallpaper' border, sentiment and anchor all stamped in Pacific Point ink by Reverse Confetti, Happy Harbor.  Lighthouse image by Gina K Designs, By The Sea colored with Copic markers.  Stickles added to create the 'light'.   

Here I have created my outside look.  This time I used the window, shutter, window box and foliage dies.  Which are all also included in the Small Madison Window die set.  I created my clapboards by scoring every 1/4 inch using my Scor Pal, this time horizontally. You can see a peek of the artwork hanging on the wall inside.  I filled my window box with starfish and sand dollars from an old Cuttlebug die I had in my stash.  BUT there are still many dies to choose from in the Dies R Us Store. 
Here are two of my favorites: 
Impression Obsession
Mini Shell Set

Just another Cape Cod View.

These cards will also be entered in the Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday, Create A Scene.
