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!

A Little Thanks

I love big background stamps and am always looking for new ways to use them. The new dahlia background stamp is fun and BIG!  I decided to stamp it on my base layer, using Blushing Bride ink on Blushing Bride paper.  I then cut it in the middle vertically, after it was stamped.   I adhered each piece to my card , a gate fold card design (5.5 x 8.5 piece of paper, scored at 2.75 on each side to make the gate folds).  I added a sentiment piece, button and baker's twine to complete the look!

Note, the sentiment is only glued on the left gate of the card so it is still able to be opened!

My plan today is to get a bunch of cards ready to the assembly stage (all stamping, cutting and embossing) and then hopefully take a bunch of cards to assemble in the camper this weekend, in case it rains!  We'll be outside alot if the weather cooperates, but never hurts to have a backup plan!  My husband loves to study maps and so I like to have something to do in addition to reading and eating ;)

There are some great weekly deals lately. Check them out in the store and in order to get them before they are gone, order online!

Happy Hump Day!
