Now….on to my project!!  I’ve created a bit of a window scene using the Woodware House Proud set.  Very cute set!  I stamped the cat on Cryogen paper, then stamped it on a sheet of notebook paper.  I cut out the one on the notebook paper and used that as a mask.  I then stamped the window over the top of that.  I stamped the curtains on patterned paper and cut it out.  I didn’t use any embellishments on this one.  I tried tying a 1/8” satin ribbon around the curtains for a “tie back”, but it should didn’t look right.  Anything else I thought of made me think it would be too busy.  What do you think?  Think it needs something?  If so, what would you recommend?  :o)


This is the front of my card.  That kitty is studying something outside, isn’t it?  Next time I’m going to mask the window & stamp a tree outside.  I think that would look cool.  Of course, I thought about doing that AFTER I added my curtains with pop dots!  LOL


This is a bit of a side-view of the front of my card and a little of the inside. 

IMG_1330This is a view of the inside of my card.  I used the two sizes of flower pots that come with this stamp set.  I stamped them with Memento London Fog and inked the edges with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
