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!

Playing with Paper Pumpkin

I'm a big fan of the Paper Pumpkin kits!  I have found that if I don't care for the planned project, I can easily use the "parts" to do something creative that I do like!  August's kit was fine, but I wanted to add a little something to the cards that were part of the kit. I added some washi tape and a brad, and then cut the cards in half  and mounted them on my own card stock, thus getting twice as many cards!  Here are some samples!

Chalkboard art is all the rage and it's easy with stamping to get that look. I used black paper and a white craft ink. I even smeared it just a tad to make it look really chalky!  Here's one more card, I think from the May or June kit where I adapted some of the parts and added some of my own.

If you are interested, Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription kit that is $19.95 and that includes shipping. There will be a project inside with all the supplies including unique stamps and ink.  I've got quite a collection of stamps and ink that I have saved from my kits and find myself going back to them quite often!  Check out this link if you are interested:

Well, I have more prep to do for my card buffet, coming up in just 3 more days!  Hope you can come!
