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!

Springtime floral Thank You

There is some gorgeous paper in the Occasions Catalog this spring!  One that really caught my eye is the Painted Blooms DSP, especially the large overall floral design. I had noticed on Pinterest that many folks were cutting this paper into 6 different pieces for 6 different cards, each a little different. I thought that looked like fun and added my own twist. Prior to making the card, I covered select flowers with Crystal Effects, sort of a glue that dries clear and gives a glossy bubble to whatever you put it on. It gave my flowers a little dimension and I love how it turned out. One tip, walk away before you do anything else!  Give the Crystal Effects time to adequately dry!  Here's my card:

If you look carefully, you will see a glossy sheen on the blue and dark purple flowers.  I am trying to give pink more of a chance in my color design process ( a least favorite color for me to create with!) and I have to say, I like this card! 

Have a lovely weekend!
