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!

Playing around with new stuff

Sometimes, my creativity takes the form of meandering playing around, with no specific goal in mind. That happens when I'm not sure what to make, have a bunch of new stuff staring me in the face and just don't know where to start.  I've learned that for me, Designer Series paper is a good place to start when I'm not sure.  It automatically can give me  a color scheme. It can also inspire my choice of stamp (floral, vintage, retro, masculine, childish, etc).  Usually it is a place to start and that's what I need. This card is a random happenstance that came about in that fashion. I wanted to try some new stuff, some neglected stuff and I needed a Thank You card. While it isn't a favorite of mine, it works for me in kinda a quirky way.

I started with the leaf background DSP and knew I wanted to try my new flower stamp set and punch. I can't even remember how I chose my color scheme!  My neglected component is the picture (think old-time Polaroid) framelit!  I haven't used that in a year and kinda forgot I had it.   Anyway, this is a hodgepodge card and I'm okay with those too. It's wonderful when you have a fabulous idea and plan it from start to finish and it's also okay when the elements just sort of end up on the paper. 

Be sure to check out my class schedule! I've added some new ones!
Happy Stampin'!
