I really like the look of elements “floating” in a card window. There are many ways to achieve this… including using acetate, clear string, vellum, etc. However today I thought I would try using tulle! Tulle is inexpensive and great for creating bows on presents. Well… it turns out it is fun for cards. I came up with this idea with the help of my 4-year-old Lila.

I created lots of examples for you today. Each card features a window created with the awesome My Favorite Things Rectangle Peek-A-Boo Die and a piece of white tulle. This cute puppy is from the My Favorite Things Friends Furever Stamp Set and the sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Lots of Hugs Stamp Set. I also added tiny die cut hearts covered with Tonic Strawberry Coulis Nuvo Jewel Drops.

All of these cards feature coloring with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and a Clear Wink of Stella Shimmer Pen on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper. This is a fun way to color on-the-go! These next stamps are also from the My Favorite Things Friends Furever Stamp Set.

To make the eyes and noses pop on all of these cards, I used a bit of Tonic Black Nuvo Crystal Drops. It makes a big difference. This bear is too cute!

Next up is a cat and sentiment from the My Favorite Things Purr-fect Friends Stamp Set. This one was such fun to color…

I am always needing birthday cards for kids, so I was happy to play with the My Favorite Things Space Explorer Stamp Set. There are many great images in this set.

For my last two cards, I used the My Favorite Things Farm Friends Stamp Set. The My Favorite Things Rectangle Peek-A-Boo Die really is the perfect size for many images and adds a fabulous faux stitching, but you could use any rectangle or circle die for the window.

For most of my cards, I stamped the matching envelope with a sentiment from the My Favorite Things Lots of Hugs Stamp Set. This set has many great images for cards and envelopes. (I link the envelopes and cardstock colors used in the thumbnails below.)

  1. What a great idea about the tulle! Thanks! I l really like them all but I think that my favorite is the astronaut.

  2. very cool, I have a bunch of tulle I could use for this, tfs!
    I would have to say the space explorer set would be perfect for all the young kids I have to make cards for in my family

  3. I would say it was a tie between Furever Friends and Farm Friends, but that darling lamb was the tie-breaker. Both sets are so cute. Thanks for the idea with tulle–I certainly would not have thought of using it (I guess that’s why I am subscribed to you).

  4. Wow what a great idea, these cards are so cute and look so fun to make , my grandson’s would love to get these cards , I really love the puppy’s Hugs and the astronaut . thanks for sharing these great ideas and techniques

  5. What a great idea. I have a bunch of tulle that I bought for a costume and didn’t want to throw away. My favourite set is the Farm Friends but loving the Purr-fect Friends too (even though I am not a fan of cats!)

  6. I have been eying the peek a boo die set for a while but it’s often out of stock when I want to make an order. Thanks for sharing these cool ideas. Love the use of the tulle.

  7. great way to use tulle! the end result is so beautiful. there is something about My Favorite Things Friends Furever Stamp Set that is calling my name. I loved how you colored the bears for some of the cards and that blue-ish one in the video too. I particularly love that light grey card with the bear with the little heart… awwwww! it’s so pretty!

  8. I really like this technique. It is hard to decide which set I like best. I think that it would be My Favorite Things Farm Friends Stamp Set. The cat stamp in the video is neat but I could probably do more with the farm animals. I am going to have to use the Tombo and Wink of Stella technique.

  9. Jennifer, when I saw these cards you created I immediately went and purchased the cat stamp and dies. But now I see the card with the lamb and bird and it is adorable! Beautiful creations!!

  10. I love the fur ever friends stamp set and the idea of floating the images on tulle or other sheer fabrics. X

  11. Hi Jennifer, I love the Farm Friends stamp set! Those critters are adorable. And thank you for the fantastic idea with the tulle! I bought of bunch of it at a dollar sale once and I’ve never used it. Now I can’t wait! Thank you!

  12. That new farm animals set is too stinkin’ cute!! Love this new technique. I think I have some tulle in my craft stash so I am off to see if I can find it.

  13. I love these cards! Thanks for another inspiring video, too. All of these stamp sets are great, but I think my favorite would have to be the Furever stamp set. How adorable. Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. Beautiful cards! Looks so playful. Thank you for sharing. My most favourite stamp set is Purr-fect Friends. I have a thing for cats and this stamp set is really lovely. I just don´t like cages in general, so would love to change them for some perches or maybe even another arty cat 😀

  15. Friend Furever has to be my favorite but there are so many great stamps in this release. Your cards are absolutely adorable, I just have to do this today! Thanks for another great video Jennifer! You give me more inspiration than time I have to do everything I want to. I go back and watch your videos over and over again!

  16. I love the use of tulle on your card! What a brilliant idea!
    My favourite stamp set is the hugs set with the matching dies! I love the sentiment!

  17. Love the tulle idea, so glad I have some! Even the purple glitter. Favorite set is Farm Friends. Now just waiting for the peek-a-boo die to be back in stock.

  18. So fell in love with this idea! Had to get some tulle on order! thank you Jennifer for another great idea!!! My favorite by far is the cat stamp! Adorable!

  19. I love both the MFT Friends Furever Stamp Set and the Purr-fect Friends Stamp Set. I am a dog lover at heart but have family members and friends who are cat lovers. Of course, I have no cat stamps in my collection as of yet. I think after seeing these I will have to get for sure.

  20. I bought some tulle quite some time ago to do something just like this…probably about 2 years ago. Somehow, it never got done. Your examples are inspiring me to go get it out and put my thoughts into action. I like the spaceman best.

  21. Love all of these adorable cards! I think my favorites are the ones with the Furever Friends! What a great idea to use tuille! Love the peekaboo die, too! I will definitely be making these cards!

  22. What a great idea & I have a bunch of tulle in a variety of colors. My favorite stamp set from above is the darling sheep.

  23. I love the way you incorporate the tulle as a window. The perfect stamp set and dies are the greatest. Thanks for the video. You do a great job!

  24. Thank you Jen for all your tips and videos. I look for your posts everyday to get inspiration and to learn more with my card making. I love the MFT Space set. Would love to have more options for boy and girl birthday cards.

  25. These tulle window card ideas are fantastic! The “My Favorite Things Rectangle Peek-A-Boo Die” looks like a must-have die for fun card-making. I love the stitching on it…..Thanks for sharing!

    Of the stamp sets, it’s so hard to choose…But I think my favourite is the “My Favorite Things Friends Furever Stamp Set”. The teddybears and little doggy are simply too cute and so versatile!
