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!

Sadly, one of my all-time favorite stamp sets is retiring, Bravo!  It has a zillion different ways to congratulate somebody from serious to playful to funny. I have loved it and used it alot!  Here's the latest card I designed for a card class. I have to tell you my inspiration... while we were packing for our house move, I came across several things that I have saved for no immediate reason and decided to use or purge. This party garland was one of those things!  I cut it in smaller strips and used it on the inside of the card!  Here's the pics:

If you are curious about the card mechanics/measurements, I took a 4.25" x 11" piece of cardstock and scored it at 3-1/2", 4-1/2" and 5-1/2".   I punched small holes in the 4-1/2" score line and then taped the first two score lines  together AFTER securing the garland in the holes. I used random DSP paper to decorate all the faces of the card. this was really fun!

I have a few left over that are heading to some graduates this year!
Happy Stampin'
