The weekend before last I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a whole day with fellow stampers at Grubs. (Gong Rubber Bugs). Though I suppose the purpose is to do some stamping, we can do what ever we want, and for myself, it was mostly catching up with friends that I hadn't seen for over 2 years. I did get 2 cards finished and was inspired to make some more over the next 10 days that are specifically attributed to the inspirations I received at Grubs.
Though I had seen stair step cards before, I had never actually gotten around to it before.
So here they are.
The next card is a bit more intricate especially with the die cut bird cage which was 1 of many sent to me by my friend Dawn McKenzie who has her own blog here. I gently curved the bird cage and glued into place.
The bird is from a Stampin Up Punch and which was a loan from another stamping buddy, Deb. One place you can this punch from Leonie here. She has a great SU blog where she shares her card inspirations here.
Again I shaped the flowers. This time I used the retro flower punch. These are such easy and a delightful way to accentuate your designs.
Tomorrow I will show you the white on white cards I made.
