Peek A Boo Sketch


This card will be entered into the Challenges at Power Poppy, Peek A Boo SketchStamping Sensations, Flower Power, ScrapyLand, Anything Goes! and Simon Says Wednesday, Touchy Feely.

I used the Short Stack stamp set from Power Poppy.  Images colored with Copic Markers and hi-lighted with a Wink Of Stella Clear Pen.  I stamped the whole image on the right and colored the entire thing....silly...as you can only see a portion of it.  Windows were created with Spellbinders Classic Circle dies.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture.

A few Pink Sequins and some pretty Pink Gingham Ribbon for accents.  I used a bit of Fun Foam as a backing for my cut out panel, it gives the card a bit more firmness and structure.

 This was my first attempt.....yikes! 

This may not be much of a peek but more of a I see you!  lol  Let's just say it warmed me up for the card above.  I used the Short Stacks stamp set from Power Poppy.  Images colored with Copic Markers.  Added a little bit of Stickles to my sweet little bird and Corner Tab Punches for accents.

The 2 larger 'windows' were die cut using Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles.  The smaller one was hand cut.  I'll probably go back and frame the windows to jazz it up a bit. 
They really are fun to make, give it a try!
Thanks for coming by!


  1. Both are nice but I have to say I like the top one best. You are so creative!!!!!!!

  2. These do look good but I am sure they are harder than they look. I love the soft pink colors and the pretty ribbon. As always, beautiful coloring.

  3. Donna, your cards are gorgeous!!! Thank you for linking up with Scrapy Land!!!

  4. You know that I like the first one, but I would not discount the first attempt at all. What I really like is that you can lift the top and peek at the inside. Good luck, I think this is a winner.

  5. Super cute - and that goes for both cards. I think that parakeet peeking out of the window is darling and you should NOT throw it out. And I LOVE the Swiss dots with the gingham ribbon on the other one. Really cute with the little flowers peeking out of the circle window at the bottom. I like them both!!!

  6. Wow! Donna, these are fantastic aperture cards! I have not attempted to make them yet. I love what you have done, and have pinned your design ideas! Thank you for the inspiration!

    Thanks for sharing with us at the {Scrapy Land Challenge}! Hope to see your pretty projects again soon!

  7. These are all gorgeous! I might have to give that idea a try. I can see making great use of negative die cutouts too!

  8. These are both FANTASTIC!!! I really like the top one with the Swiss Dots and gingham ribbon but I also really like your first attempt one too. If you add frames to the windows I hope you'll post it.

  9. Both are lovely. Totally adore the swiss dots and the springy feel to your sketch. Your first attempt is lovely and a warmer feel to it. Fun idea with the squares. Thanks for playing in our Power and Spark challenge this month.

  10. Oh, Donna, what fun cards, and I love each one! I always love the dotted swiss embossing folder, and your sweet image is beautifully colored! And the short stack is just sweet in the cut-out card! Congrats for being featured in today's Power Poppy post! Hugs!

  11. Very pretty technique....another I need to try. You keep my hopping. lol Both cards are lovely!

  12. Great designs Donna! I really love that sweet gingham ribbon on the 1st one, and I love that fun vibrant colouring on the budgie and tea cups too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Power Poppy!

  13. I love both your cards, so adorable! Thanks for joining us at Stamping Sensations.
