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!

Let us Celebrate!

If you are like me, there is always a need for a birthday card that you want to get in the mail or hand deliver to someone special! This is a fun design using some new products from the Occasions Catalog.  I also tried to do a different color scheme that could be for either a guy or gal. What do you think?

Couple of things to draw your attention to... First, I used the "Let us Celebrate" stamp from the Balloon Celebration stamp set, but since it is a photopolymer stamp, I curved it on my acrylic block so I could fit it in the corner... I love to do that and forget to do it most of the time. Secondly, to get a layered and dimensional effect, I stamped the balloons directly on my card first, then stamped some on coordinated card stock and punched them out with the new Balloon Celebration punch. Lastly, I love this bear!  He will go anywhere on a card and is sure to bring a smile. I've listed my supplies below in case you would like to recreate this card. Another idea would be to make it a graduation card and change the balloon colors to school colors!

I hope you are finding some therapy time with your crafting projects. I know that it doesn't always happen, but it's sure great when it does!
Have a great Thursday!
