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!

and anniversary!

While weddings are deserving of all sorts of celebration, anticipation and excitement, anniversaries are where the rubber meets the road, so to speak!  It's always wonderful to congratulate a couple on another year together, even in the midst of wonderful or tough life circumstances. I love celebrating anniversaries!  Here's my card, inspired by the great new stamp set "Timeless Love".

This is a very nontraditional color scheme and background paper for an anniversary card, paired with a very traditional theme of flowers.  It was fun to play with and design. I stamped the flower arch twice to make a circle . The flowers are colored using blender pens and several different inks, bringing out the tones of the background paper. I used Stazon ink so the colors/black ink wouldn't bleed. I also used Stazon to stamp on the velum overlay and attacked it with brads. This was a super fun card to make and it inched me out of my box a little bit as well!

Have a great weekend!
