Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Home

I grew up in the kind of neighborhood and era where your parents turned you loose on Halloween to cover as much territory as you legs could handle and trusted you to be back before 10 p.m. or so with all the candy you could gather. Other than the one time a lady in a house offered me a banana, it was a great childhood adventure every year. Times have changed and I was never able to turn my kids loose, but we did do some trick-or-treating on a much smaller scale back in the day. I am somewhat ambivalent about Halloween now but every now and then, something strikes my memory and funny bone and I have to create with it. That is the case with the new stamp set "Holiday Home" (#137631 for bundle) which comes with framelits to cut out the houses. I was intrigued by the Christmas and fall images, but the first card I made was a Halloween one because I wanted to see if I could make ghosts appear to be coming out of the chimney!  Funny how our minds work, right?  Here it is:

There are a few problems with this card, such as we NEVER have green grass in October and bats don't usually fly and frolick under blue skis but sometimes you have to compromise for the sake of art ;)  Here's the stamp set and as you can see, there are tons of possibilities!

Hope you have a fun weekend planned... take time to create!
Happy Stampin'!
