Through my window

Today's OWH tutorial is on making window cards.  One of the ladies I follow is Kittie over at KittieKraft and she rocks window cards!  While I'm nowhere on her level, I tried making a literal window on a card, looking out at a mountain range, which I'd love to see outside my window every day!
I popped the window off the card, although I didn't show you that.
My second card is for the June ODBD challenge, which is water this month.  I really struggled with this one, and when Bugaboo Stamps offered this freebie stamp I was inspired to create this card:
The embossing folder is from Tim Holtz, sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.  That little girl makes me feel like getting in the water!  Here's another version I made, with a diecut sun ray image I made:
I will be entry #41 in the June ODBD challenge - we only need 9 more to get to 50 and then ODBD will pay to ship another box of our cards!  Let's go, ladies!!!
Hope you're having a great week so far.


  1. Erika-I love that you used a real window! I made 2 windows this weekend- but did not even consider them for today's tutorial-lol! i love the mountains in the distance! And your water cards are precious! I love the sun rays coming out behind the sweet image-- and along with the yellow and blue- screams happiness!
