MCT: Throwback Thursday "Do Over"

Hi, today is Throwback Thursday over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are choosing a project to "Do Over". Now that Emma has created a cute kitty I just knew I wanted to create a similar card as my doggy in the window but of course with the kitty. I also wanted to create more of a spring house scene on the card this time. I'm so ready for spring!!!

I first cut out the base of the card using Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and then scored it every half of inch. This gives it the look of siding on a house. 

I cut out the window, flower outline, and flower box out using Stitched Window Dies & Accessories. I stamped on the flowers using Window Sentiments and Flowers stamp set. I colored the leaves and flowers in with Copic markers. I then stamped on the sentiment from You Had Me At Meow stamp set onto the flower box using Versarmark ink and Recollection's Snow Embossing Powder.


I added the white picket fence using the dies from Loyal Friends stamp set. Then I tied American Crafts twine on it. I added a little Teresa Collins heart enamel dot to the bow. Then I added two strips of Stitched Grass.

I used the You Had Me At Meow to stamp the little kitty onto gray Recollection's card stock and then cut it out with the dies from the same set. When I was stamping the kitty, I masked the eyes and stamped on the face from Peachy Keen Stamps: Variety Face Assortment. I colored the eyes in with Copic markers. Then I took a dark gray Copic marker and created the stripes on the kitty. I chalked the cheeks and then added a few white gel pen accents to the whiskers.The kitty doesn't fit as well as the doggy in the window but that's okay. It looks just as cute sitting in the flower box just outside the window.  

Here is my original card! I still like it very much but I also like my card with the kitty as well! I love them both  in their own unique ways.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! For more amazing projects from the rest of the design team please head on over to Miss Emma's blog!!
