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!

The true reason for the Season!

I have to admit I like just about everything about this time of year. I even like cold weather and snow which is convenient since I live in Montana!  All of the Christmas imagery speaks to my heart and you will see much of it in my work as I'm drawn to those stamps that evoke strong tradition, memories and faith. I love it when we get new stamps reflecting the true Reason for the Season, the birth of Jesus Christ. Two of the cards we will be making this week use these new stamps sets and I am so excited to share them with you!  Here's one for today:

Lots of things are wonderful about the products I used, but how I altered them makes this card!  The music paper is part of a new Designer Series Paper called "Home for Christmas". For you musicians out there, this is legit sheet music that can be played on a piano. I know, because I tried it!  I stamped directly on the DSP paper with our wonderful new dark black archival ink.  Secondly, I used a wooden snowflake embellishment as a "star". Before I adhered it, I inked it up directly on the ink pad with some shiny gold ink.  This was a fun and easy card to make that also speaks the greatest truth of all.

Have a great Thursday!
