Looking Glass Greenhouse Scene

Mar 24, 2023 Mindy Eggen

Hello friends! This is Mindy with you today to share inspiration using the Looking Glass Greenhouse die set. I had an idea to create a scene filled with florals and beautiful Spring colors.

To start my scene, I applied Granite ink through the Brick Wall Stencil using a blending brush onto Deluxe Smooth White cardstock. It didn't have to be perfectly blended through the stencil. I personally like when areas are darker than others.

Next, I used the Alignment Tool and a Square Infinity Die to cut out the opening from my stenciled background. I also used the Alignment Tool with the Looking Glass Greenhouse die to cut out the layers for my window. 

I went through each layer of the greenhouse and colored in the die cut images with OLO markers. 

Then I adhered all of my panels together starting with the brick wall and then each layer of the greenhouse just using a tape runner. 

To finish decorating the outside of my greenhouse, I stamped out the Wisteria HeroScape in a couple different Spring color combinations. I also stamped out the sentiment and some butterflies using Pitch Black ink.

After die cutting them out with the coordinating die, I layered the wisteria at the bottom of my greenhouse using foam tape. The sentiment I adhered above my greenhouse and the butterflies are popped up with foam squares.

Now for a little surprise for the recipient, I used the Alignment Tool and the Square Infinity Die once again to cut out a window from my card base and added my decorated panel.

I love this little scene of looking in from the outside. Such a fun Spring card! 

Thanks for stopping by!
