Rubber stamping, paper and ink creativity straight from the heart of Montana
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!

Happy Birthday America and Jenny Cade!
I LOVE the 4th of July! I always have. I love the colors, the fireworks, the summer, the swimming, the burgers and everything associated with this wonderful celebration of our nation's birth and what that stands for, FREEDOM! I have some great childhood memories of really fun 4th celebrations but the we really upped our game in 1987 when I had a baby girl, about 10:30 at night, while the fireworks were exploding! We've been celebrating ever since and this year will be no exception. Here's the card I made to celebrate this great day:
Stampin' Up has some fun new paper that is pre-embossed with a glossy white design ( and the new In-Colors) and by using a sponge dauber, you can add color to the non-embossed areas of the paper, as I did here with some red ink on a stripe pattern background. We also have a new star punch! I heat embossed my greeting on vellum paper and attached with some Washi tape. Fun and easy to make card!
