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!

Watercolor Congratulations

Here's a fun card using some retiring Designer Series Paper that ended being  favorite of mine, Gold Soiree.  It's wedding season big time in Montana, which can be a fun place for a destination wedding!  I love making wedding cards and try to think of different color schemes to complement a couple's plans.  The technique for water coloring that I used is super simple... ink and Aqua Painter. I did switch out the paper to see how it would work. I used our Shimmer White paper instead of watercolor paper. It's a little heavier than card stock and did not disintegrate as I brushed water on it. I love the results!

I heat-embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and added a few gold sequins for fun. This card is on my card buffet if you would like to make one for yourself!  My buffet is at my house, running from 9 to 1 both today and tomorrow!  Come check out all the fun!

Happy Stampin'!
