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!

Lotus Blossom for You

One of the fun freebies in the Sale-A-Bration brochure is the "Lotus Blossom Stamp Set". It's a set that comes with 3 different stamps for the flower, to do 3 step stamping, right on top of each other. The idea is to use 3 different inks and automatically get some gorgeous shading as you stamp with each layer.   Here's my card and then I'll try to explain more about it!

The set comes with three different flower stamps, all in differing layers of ink saturation. I used three colors and stamped on top of each other from darkest to lightest:  Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant.   It also comes with two stem stamps so I used Garden Green and Wild Wasabi.  This was a really fun technique and the stamps have tabs on them to orient your stamping, i.e. always place the tab portion of the stamp at 12 o'clock.   The "for you"  is a framelit from the Mini Teat Bag framelit set, also available in the Occasions Catalog. 

If you want to see some of these products and techniques in real life, come to a class! These are low stress, fun and creative. You will come away with 3 cards  that you made yourself! The satisfaction and sense of achievement is huge! Check out my calendar for details or contact me with any questions. The classes are Friday morning at 9 a.m. and Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

Happy Stampin'!
