Why Did I Buy This? – Window Sheets


Episode 9 of “Why Did I Buy This?” focused on an often overlooked craft supply: Window Sheets! This inexpensive product is incredibly versatile and absolutely made for techniques! If you missed this episode, you can watch the replay of today’s Facebook Live!

Window sheets have a lot of uses and today’s episode took us from some of the traditional uses, to some of the lesser known uses!

The first projects used Window Sheets as the card base.  Some of them emphasized the layering of the card front with the background, like these two:

This card is what I refer to as the “medical journal” card – it reminds me of an anatomy text book with the layers that reveal the different body systems.  For this card the more detailed die layers are on the top, and the more solid layers are on the inside:

This card uses our Window Sheets in a more traditional manner – as a shaker card.  What really pushes this design to the next level is bringing in the detailed laser cut note cards from the Bird Ballad Suite to line the shaker window:

Did you know that Stampin’ Up!’s Window Sheets can go through the die cutting machine?  Check out this card made with the Woodland Embossing Folder:

My final card showcases a few cool things about window sheets.  First of all, it can be stamped on with Stazon ink.  If you flip it over, and add glue, you can create a sparkly, peek-a-boo effect on the image.  And finally, our Stampin’ Blends markers, being alcohol based, can colour on Window Sheets to create a “Stained Glass” type of effect.  Here’s the finished project:
