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!

Some guys are just classic, right?!!

For about a year now, the "Guy Greetings" stamp set has been a favorite of mine. I used many of the stamps for Valentine's Day and Father's Day last year and many birthday cards.  I love it!  It appeals to my quirky sense of humor and fits several guys in my life. Guys are guys... aren't they?  Here's my latest card using this versatile set:

While the stamped images are what you are drawn to, I hope you notice the brick wall behind it all!  We have a new brick wall embossing folder and man is that fun to use!  It's a big one, 6 x 6" so you can use it vertically or horizontally on a card. To get the look of grout between the bricks, I used the edge of a dauber and some white craft ink... very light touch. I actually had to use scissors to cut out the guy, but that's good practice for me. Don't want to forget my scissor skills with all the fabulous tools we have to avoid fussy cutting with scissors!

This card and more are available to make on my card buffet! Hours are 9 to 1 today and tomorrow! Hope you can swing by my house and have a creative time out!
