Demo cards from Scrapbook Expo...

At the RUBBERNECKER booth of Scrapbook Expo, I had the pleasure of watching the creator of these stamps do his magic.  He gave me the two I watched him make and I turned them into the two cards you see here, once I returned home.  I purchased two stamp sets from him.  One is called Poppy Bunch #926 which I created and turned into tags.  I'm still not sure where I'm going with these yet but I'll post them when I do.  And the other is Freehand Frame.  I used it around the two images I turned into cards.  WICKED cool stuff!! :)
At the Sizzix booth, they were demoing a die-cut set that makes this card.  Since I was the ONLY one watching the demo, she asked me to pick the papers.  She cut all the pieces EXCEPT the middle white piece.  She said she forgot to bring that die.  Now, to me, Cindy OCD, that is completely unacceptable!  I was ready to throw the whole thing away when I got home.  I found it useless without the middle piece.  WELL, my house guest, Miss Jeanne, wasn't going to let that sit!  Not no way, not no how!  She created a template for me that exactly fit the middle.  I used it to trace around this sentiment from my stash and voilà I have a card I will use... aren't crafty friends THE BEST?!!
Love you Jeanne... :)

  1. More gorgeous cards. I love seeing your posts. I was going to ask if you did that frame free hand. LOVE IT. Now to look for it at my LSS. And I have a similar die that cuts a window like the 2nd one you posted, but the center design is round. I love the papers used on this. And I'm glad you didn't toss it! Silly gurl. <3
