Window Planter and Brick Wall - CHF

Good evening, folks! I've been sick for the past week, which is why it's been so quiet on my blog. I'm hoping I've turned the corner and I'm finally on the mend now. Unfortunately, my hubby may have caught whatever I've had. Poor guy! I hope he doesn't come down with it!

I wanted to share a new CHF card with ya tonight. CHF is my shorthand for Cornish Heritage Farms. We just had a big release party a little over a week ago, and all the new rubber stamps are up in their store now. I've used two of the awesome backgrounders on this card - Brick Wall and Wood Grain.

I used the Wood Grain backgrounder on the little window planter and then I added some leaves and flowers to the planter. The Brick Wall backgrounder is stamped on the dark red cardstock with a brown ink and then I sponged a little more around the edges. I die cut the window and added some blue patterned paper to simulate wallpaper inside the window.

This is a fun little scene I've had in my head ever since I saw the Brick Wall backgrounder. :-) Wouldn't it be fun to do this for all four seasons? Think about it - some leaves all over the place for fall, some snow and maybe a wreath in the window for winter.... The brick wall can be any color as well - cream, classic brick red, brown, white..... so many possibilities!

I hope you have enjoyed this fun little window scene! Have a wonderful week!
