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!

Want to Washi?

If you are not familiar with the paper craft industry, you may not be familiar with the word "washi"... If you have heard of it and haven't tried it, why not?  It's amazing!  Washi is a masking, paper-y sort of tape that is colorful, semi-transparent, repositionable and FUN!  It's been around for awhile and Stampin'Up! has carried it for about 2-3 years now. I have bought some and played with it but not as much as I should have, given how easy it is to work with!  I designed a card using alot of Washi tape and also an embossing folder to help me with placement of the tape. I used the Stylish Stripes folder which has diagonal lines and easily gives you some grooves to lay your washi tape down. Here's the card so you can see what I mean:

How cute is that?!  and easy?!  I love this card and bonus , most of Stampin' Up!'s washi tape is on the retired list, for 40% or 50% off!   If you look closely, you'll noticed a stamped Happy Birthday right on the tape. I used Stazon ink, a permanent ink, that doesn't smear on a slippery surface.  I'm going to make a bunch of these cards! they are fun and easy and as colorful as can be!

Last day of my buffet is today!  Stop by if you have a minute and make this card or another one to suit your fancy!

Washi-ing away,
