I was inspired by the gals over at Caardvarks to make a window card. I filled a zip-to baggie with hair gel and taped it to back of my window. on the inside there is a gradient blue panel that I made with a kaliedacolor ink pad, brayer and homemade shimmer spray. Here you can see the card closed and open:

Does anyone else have Beach Boys songs stuck in their head?

Here you can see the inside of the card, I sealed the baggie with my "Hot Marks" tool and I'm hoping for the best :)

I have had the fortune to try out a Wacom pen tablet. My friend Micki lent me her tablet and I can’t stop playing with the darn thing (hey Micki, do you think you could explain to my husband why I haven’t had time to do any laundry this week LOL!) The digital stamp on this card I made by drawing it right on the tablet, what fun! To see more of my designs click here.

I colored the digistamp with Bic Markits, I wish I cut out the inside of the pail's handle though.

I know it is one of my first attempts with the tablet, I am used to drawing by hand and scanning it into the computer, what do you think? I also drew the sun in inkscape and made a svg file that you can cut with your cricut if you have Sure Cuts A Lot software. I have a scut file for the card base too and I did not forget my cricut peeps who only have the free trial of DS you can make this card with Design Studio using the George cartridge (I think there is a sun die cut on the George card as well that you can use in place of my sun svg.)

NEW* here is a printable version of the card and sun template!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’d love to hear any comments on the files or tips for using a wacom tablet, or if you just want to say “hello”! Till next time happy crafting!
