Inlaid Die Cut Window Cards + Video

How's the end of your summer?  The kids here have all gone back to school, but the weather is still in the high 80s and 90s.  I'm ready for fall - probably because I'm already making Halloween goodies! 

I've got a new video on how to make these inlaid die cut window cards.  Basically, just adding back a piece of the die cut into the window.  They are pretty easy, but I've got a tip or two to make them even easier.

I love this stamp!  Isn't she just adorable?  

I had so much fun coloring her hair - not only pink, but polka dot too!  I"m not sure what brought that on.  Her face looks yellow in this pic, but seriously - it's not!

This window has been enhanced with orange paint dots.

Love this (oddball) girl, too!  She has wonderfully curly hair and you gotta love those eyes and batwings!

Here's the video:

Have you made any Halloween goodies yet?  I know a lot of you have been making Christmas things throughout the year - wish I had been!
