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!

It's January, but I can dream of summer, right?

As promised, I'm back today with another post featuring the "Sheltering Tree" stamp set. I can already tell I'm going to have alot of fun with this set. Can you picture cherry blossoms in the spring, or crab apples as the case would be in Montana?  What about all the glorious colors of autumn?  Here's my card today:

I never grew up in a yard with a good climbing tree, but this looks like one, doesn't it?  My grandma's backyard in Big Timber, MT had a few green apple trees and this reminds me of them in the summer and they were very climbable!  Are you wondering how I made the grass?  Stampin' Up! sells fringing scissors (pg 215 of annual catalog) and it was a snap with those. The scissors have 5 blades close together and making grass is a favorite way to use them for me. Depending on how my day goes, I am going to keep going with my seasonal theme and Sheltering Tree!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at what I'm up to with my crafting. Happy Hump Day!
