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!

You're a Whole Lot of Wonderful

Hi friends! I can't believe how quickly February is flying by. It doesn't seem like winter can make up it's mind here this year, although I know that's not true everywhere. I'm enjoying a little more free time lately and love coming up with new ideas!  My "Intro to Card Making"  class was really fun last night and in fact, I will do it again! Watch for the next one, sometime in March or April.

The card I have for you today features one of the first stamps I got from the annual catalog, "Vivid Vases", last May I think!  I love it because it can be used alone or combined with another sentiment, like I did here:

I always need birthday cards, but sometimes I get bored with my "birthday" stamps, so it's fun to see what else I can use and then try to modify, adapt or add to it to make it a birthday card.   I colored the vases and flowers with Blendabilities. I'm no expert, but they are fun to play with. I limited myself to 3 colors, Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight (except for the Old Olive leaves) . Right now, during Sale-A-Bration, you can get a set of Blendabilities for free with any $50 purchase. I started my collection with a couple flower colors and a green. That gave me plenty to play with at first, then I slowly added some more over the months. Each set comes with a light, medium and dark colored pen so you can get some shading effects in your coloring.  Don't forget to purchase a Momento Black ink pad as well. That is what you need to stamp your image with and then when you color, your stamped image won't bleed!

Well, I'm headed back to my craft room to see what inspires me today!
Have a great one~~
