The cover was stamped with the grass stem and butterfly from Nature Walk, with the quotation from Faith in Nature, as it seemed most fitting for what happens when you open it.....
It opens out into a star shape, with each part of the star decorated to look like a window. Come and have a closer look at each panel:
The garden scene has been created with stamps from Autumn Days, Nature Walk and Lovely As A Tree (using the tree top only makes for some great foliage). The insects and butterflies are from Nature Walk and All A Flutter. The curtains and windows are made from Very Vanilla card stock and Everyday Enchantment paper.
I'm putting together a tutorial on how to make this, mostly so I can remember the next time I want to make one, but if you're interested too, check back on my blog soon! So with that in mind, I won't put my usual supply list as I'll include it with the more detailed instructions. Edited to add: the tutorial can be found here.
I'd like to enter this into the 'In the Garden' scene challenge at Craft A Scene, 'Crafty Passion' challenge at Sir Stampalot (inky loveliness, playing around with stamps and trying to come up with something out of the ordinary all rank pretty highly on my list of crafty passions!) and 'This is the House That Jack Built' challenge at Daring Cardmakers.
Today's feline offering is not a photo, but a video, supplied by the lovely Sandy. Thank you, Sandy!
Thanks ever so much for stopping by today,
