Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

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!
