Hello! Today I have a fun partial die cut window technique. I am also part of a fun blog hop with prizes!

This partial die cut window technique is a fun way to get a new look from border dies! It would work great for creating shaker windows, too, but I decided to create a textured window with sparkle instead.
To create the window, I used border dies from the new Hero Arts My Monthly Hero October Kit (more on that below) and a Hero Arts Nesting Rectangle Infinity Die. (Partial die cut windows are hard to explain in text, so be sure to watch the video to learn how!) I also stamped, colored and die cut lots of images from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero October Kit . Aren’t they the cutest?
Behind the partial die cut windows, I added a piece of Thick Handmade Paper that I inked with blue Distress Inks. I also spritzed it generously with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for lots of shine. I have been loving these handmade papers lately. They are thick, textured, and unique!
I used Judikins Embossable Window Plastic to create a window panel. I have found this acetate the best for heat embossing with no warping! I stamped the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero October Kit Santa image with VersaMark and white heat embossed. I love how it looks like it is floating.
I wish you could see the sparkle in the night sky! It really is gorgeous.
I also did two bonus cards. No partial die cutting here, but I just had to use the new Hero Arts Fluffy Stockings Stamps and Dies… which is available as an add-on for the kit. That foiled handmade paper in the background is from the kit, though!
The Hero Arts My Monthly Hero October Kit includes several sheets of silvery handmade paper. It is a great way to spice up a simple card.
Aren’t they the cutest?
