Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Fall Flower Patch

There is a great new set in the annual catalog of flower and leaf stamps and framelits. I played with them alot this summer and couldn't wait to try some fall colored flowers and leaves. I also like to do some two-step stamping (stamping on top of already stamped images) and this set lends itself to this really well. For a background, I debated about using an embossing folder or background stamp and ended up using the background stamp "I Love Lace" (#134033). This is going to be a go to stamp for me with any vintage or feminine card that I want to make. Here's the result:

 Obviously this set has endless possibilities!  I also didn't add any sentiment to make it more versatile and also it gave it the added benefit of being either a horizontal or vertical oriented card. The set comes as a bundle, called "Flower Patch"  (#136788)

I'm off to Farmer's Market today! It's the last one for me this season and I've emptied out my cupboards. In addition to my regular inventory of cards, I will have all my holiday cards there at a greatly reduced price!
Stop by if you end up at the fairgrounds this morning!
Happy Stampin'!
