Cat in the window


Hi, I was inspired to make this card by the challenge at CAS on Sunday, where the theme is to create a Welcome Home, or New Home project.

I hope this is CAS enough, there is white space, but it's embossed with the bricks folder.

I'm also linking to a few other challenges.
At Addicted to Stamps & More, it's an Anything Goes challenge.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the theme is Animal Antics. I used black flocking on the cat. It's the first time I've used it and it does look furry IRL. I think the cat looks as if it's not supposed to be sitting on that window sill and his tail is twitching!

I've used quite a few snippets here, the cat, the flower pot and the decorative blind. So, I'm off to the playground again at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Materials used: Tim Holtz brick embossing folder; Poppystamps window and cat dies; Mpress edger fan die; Martha Stewart branch punch; flower pot punch; distress inks; flocking; Craft Queen paper flower painted with twinkling H2Os; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

This is so cute... the cat looks perfect on the window sill. How did you manage to make the wooden window so real looking?

Oh Cathy, this is just fabulous! Such a pretty card and yup, the cat looks as it f it's breaking 'house rules' :) I adore the window die you used against the textured brick background. Brilliant!

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Cathy - thank you for your kind comment on my blog.
I think that your cards are AMAZING! and will be back to visit.
You asked about my heart card - it is a peel off by Woodware called Bubble hearts. There are about six on the sheet at only around £1.50. I have seen them on ebay. xx

Oh we do love our MB dies don't we? You've used this window die so very well with the brick EF. I liked the curtain valance too! I have an MS punch that I think would work for this. Thanks for this idea (if I can remember it!) This is just lovely - as always. TFS & Hugs
