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. I love tulle and I love the idea of using tulle for a window. Some black tulle would be fun for Halloween. My favorite of the new MFT release is the Farm Friends, love those little animals and that cute tractor.

  2. I love the Friends Furever Stamp set. I’m new to stamping so I appreciate the step by step process you show when you make an item.

  3. I just love this window card with tulle. My favorite stamp set you used is the Friends Furever set. So cute!

  4. What a clever use for tulle! Thanks for sharing! I couldn’t decide on just one stamp set as my favorite this time so I’m going with two – furever friends and lots of hugs.

  5. Loving all your videos! Such an encouragement to me and has got me back in the craft room. Favorite stamp set is Purrfect Friends….love, love, love!!

  6. These are great! Love the Farm Friends stamp set! Never would have thought to use tulle on my cards….brilliant ♥

  7. The Farm Friends stamp set is my favorite newest release. It matches my family so perfectly. We live on a farm and several of our family members have milk cows and we ourselves have other farm animals. Farm animals are one of our ways of life and these stamps are a very cute way of bringing that to others!!!

  8. I love this idea and even bought some tulle! I love the dog and bears! Thanks so much for sharing this idea!

  9. So many good sets but the Friends Forever is probably my favorite one. Loved all your card ideas. Thanks for this video.

  10. The tulle is genius! All the stamp sets are adorable, but I think the farm one is the best. I don’t have any animal stamps at all!

  11. I learn so much from your videos and hope you keep making them. The cards are adorable, making it hard to choose which set I like best. The Friends Furever seems to be my favorite. Thanks.

  12. Love the space explorer stamp set! We have 5 young boys in our extended family so this stamp would be perfect!

  13. Love them all, but Purr fect Friends is my favorite. Jennifer I love your blog, I don’t know how you keep coming up with all these ideas, you are costing me so so much money because I always want to try your ideas out so I always end up getting at least one of the stamp sets you show and any supplies I don’t already have so I can make the card. People think I am amazing but I always give you the credit and let them know where I got the idea, only fair, they know I’m not that creative, lol.

  14. I love the astronaut set! I know a little girl who just loves space. It is a great easy to make card for kids. Super cute.

  15. Definitely the My Favorite Things Space Explorer Stamp Set! We are big on astronauts in our family. My husband used to read the NASA blog to my daughter at bedtime!

  16. The cat is my fav. And the window is die is a close second. Thanks for sharing your tulle idea – it’s great. I have a stash of tulle in almost every color. Have used tulle in bows, belly bands, backgrounds, accents, as a background stencil and as an envelope. But your window is fantastic!!!

  17. Thank you for your inspiration Jennifer! Using tulle is such a great idea! My most favourite stamp set is Purr-fect Friends, I have a cat, so this set is sooo me 🙂

  18. What a great idea! My favorite stamp set is the Farm Friends. Thanks for another great technique and chance at the giveaway!

  19. The tulle window is such a clever idea! Now I know what to do with my tulle stash which I’ve kept forever. The cats stamp set is my favourite! So gorgeous.

  20. Space explorer for sure – so cute! You are making a case for buying the dies with each stamp set. I often skip the expense and assume I can fussy cut if needed, but this is one technique where that won’t work, at least not well. Hmm…

  21. You have created a clever technique with the tulle and being able to ‘float’ hearts, quotes and flowers etc. on it. So my choice is easy, with that lovely sketch cat it has to be Purr-fect Friends stamp set.

  22. You did it again, you used stuff that I have on a card, why don’t I come up with that? ? Thanks for sharing!
    I love the cards you made and I really love the friends furever stamp set, it is so cute.

  23. luv LOTS OF HUGS stamp set! I’m always looking for a good collection of sentiment. Also I loooove Peek-a-boo die! What a fun die!

  24. I just adore the cat stamp set and die. As I dont have any cat stamp sets these are just perfect for my cat loving friends
