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!

So Sweet

Today's card is more of a traditional valentine, even including some gorgeous new lace that Stampin'Up! has in the Occasions catalog (pg 43). This lace would be wonderful on a wedding or baby card as well, but since I have Valentines on the brain, this is what I thought of.   I experimented with 3 different reds/pinks but it is pretty subtle. I used Real Red, Strawberry Slush and Primrose Petals (retired color). After trying various punches and Framelits for the hearts, none of which were perfect, I actually cut the hearts out with scissors. I know, old school... ;)  Anyway, here it is:

Very simple, yet striking. In case you haven't noticed, I've been adding an additional feature to my blog, a supply list!  I'm striving to get better and better at using this blog site and teaching myself something everyday!

I'll be back tomorrow and then, we'll see. My hubby is having a pretty huge foot surgery in Seattle next week and I'm not sure what I'll have time for. Real life is what really matters... all these cards are just for fun!
Have a great Wednesday!
