Good Saturday morning. I have a fun die cut window scene with cats and birds to share with you today. I like the color combination of blue, yellow and green with the white fence and outer frame. For this project I used Rubbernecker Stamps 5148-03D Windows with Double Stitch, 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC, 5147-05D Flower Stems, 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds, 5147-06D Small Birds, 5142-09D Cats, 5152-03D Grass, 5152-02D Knob Top Fence and 5147-12D Watering Can.
The Window Frame
I cut the window frame and scalloped frame, secured the window frame inside the scalloped frame and attached them together using double stick tape. The window frame fit perfectly inside the scalloped frame but was just a touch longer so I just tucked the bottom portion in behind and attached with double stick tape. I didn’t think it was too noticeable. Next I attached the grass layers and fence to the back of the window frames. I hand cut the two window boxes for the top window openings and attached them in place rolled up glue dots. I first tried attaching with mounting tape but it made them stick out too far.
The Flowers and Stems
I formed all the tiny flowers using my stylus and molding pad and then attached three to each flower stem using glossy accents. I tucked the stems in behind the grass and window boxes and attached with glossy accents.
Coloring the Cats and Watering Can
I cut the cats using white cardstock and colored them using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink. Check out my Coloring Die Cut Animals if you would like to see a few step by step photos showing how I colored the cats. I cut the watering can using gray cardstock and colored it using mini applicators and Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo inks.
Completing the Die Cut Window Scene with Cats and Birds
I attached the cats to the card base using pieces of mounting tape. I wanted them to appear to be chasing the birds. I attached the flying bird at the top of the scene between the two cats with a piece of mounting tape. The bird on the fence and the one on the grass in front of the watering can were attached with rolled up glue dots.
I hope you have been inspired to get your supplies out and create your own die cut window scene with cats and birds. I had so much fun making this card and combining all the different dies. The scene possibilities are endless. Thanks for coming by today.
I bought the rectangle die from you at Expo and I keep forgetting to pull it out and use it. You just do so much with this die and everytime I see youuse it I think “I got to do some cards with those dies I bought from Kitty.” Love the cats and how you colored them!!
I like those color combinations too, Kittie! AND what a PERFECT DEPICTION of what kitties are like! LOL I’ve had to peel one of my kitties off/out of the mini-blinds before, for trying to get to a bird! LOL They just get SO ENTRANCED & DETERMINED to get those birds! 😉 SUPER JOB, Kittie!!! 😀
