HOC Technique Challenge

It's a new month and that means a new monthly challenge at

This month we have a technique challenge.
We would like to see cards using
the Stamped Punch Window technique.

Here is what I came up with.

I started by stamping a Stampendous stamp called
Fireside Ivy on ivory colored cardstock.
Next I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.
I matted the outside of the image with brown card stock.
Next I took a Sizzix Framlits oval die and cut out the center of the image.
 The outside piece was then popped with foam tape on top of a green mat.
Next the center of the image was place inside the cut out
and the whole piece was added to the card base.

We hope you join in at House of Cards and show us your
Stamped Punch Window creation.
