crafty creations challenges

happy wednesday!  its crafty creations day again...this time our theme is windows. be sure to hop on over to CCC and see the projects the rest of the DT did using this theme and then join on in our crafty fun :)
i won this stamp quite awhile ago and although i love it i dont use it often  im not a good stamper so i tend to stick to what i do better  which is utilizing my cricut to the max!
 but never gonna get better at anything if you dont at least try stamped the main stamp cut it out and adhered it to my cardstock  then stamped the curtains again and cut out then pop dotted over the original  stamped image. i stamped some flowers and birds at the windows trying to give the effect they were outside, the kittys were cut from my cricut and zoobaloo cartridge. the poor baby kitty... i dont know what i did to its eyes but man oh man it looks buzzed up on something doesnt it.. lol guess im about as good with acrylic paint as i am stamping ;) i'll give this to my daughter as she'll get a huge chuckle out of  zany eyed kitty.
i also used my jasmine cartridge for the corners and martha stewart punch for those sweet itty bitty butterflies.  gorgeous papers are memorybox. i added some kaiser kraft pearls (noses) and used colorbox fluid chalk pad for some coloring. thanks so much for looking and commenting i appreciate the feedback :)
oh and tune in next wednesday when yours truly will be hosting CCC :)  fun fun!!
thank you for taking the time with me :) hope you come back soon :) have a super day :) shelly

Wow, how cute is this card!? I'm not a fan of kitties but i have a kitty stamp and you have just inspired me to use mine. I'm no good at stamping but I'm trying my best. YOU, on the other hand, ARE good at it. I love your technique and your kitties look fine - they really do. I cut one from my Cricut and tried to make a face on it...hahahaha - yeah, he was no longer recognizable! :) I love this card and the effect so I will see what I can do.

How CUTE!! I just used this window this week myself, Shelly! LOL! You did a beautiful job with it! I love it! I've had this stamp for 8 months and never inked it up. But I really like it now! hugs!
