I had so much fun making these two cards. They were made with my wonderful demo a little while ago and I saved them to share during this hop. We actually made three cards that night; I will share the third one next week.
The first one is a really cute Stair Step card using the new baby set. I wasn't sure I liked this set at first, but I have fallen in love with it. There are so many versatile baby themed images and I don't have to hand cut any of them! the framelits are wonderful. Now, I know you can tell that a few of mine are not cut perfectly.. that is purely operator error on my part. The table we were using was a tad high for me and I didn't quite realize that I hadn't lined up the ducky correctly. If I had more time I'd have trimmed around them with a pair of scissors to tidy them up. Although I did most of the work with the framelits, you'll notice I also used a few punches too - the oval sentiment, the scallop border punch, and the circle framing one of my ducks (strategically placed to hide a tear in my border) give this card extra pop.
My second card, while not nearly as time consuming, is equally effective. It uses Here, I used the Banner Framelits, which debuted in the Spring Occasions catalogue and was then carried over into the current 2014-2015 Idea Book & Catalogue. Love all the new In Colours in this card... I think this designer series paper may be my favourite for the year. On this night, I was trying to make my own cards, plus do the stamping for a friend of mine who couldn't make the club that night. As a result, I did a few things differently that the 'right' way - in this case, for example, I cut out my white banner before I stamped. I will not do that again!
