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!

Marquee Messages

I had the privilege of traveling to Salt Lake City in April to attend a Stampin'Up! "On Stage" event, their semi-annual convention.  It's always a great time of new product reveals, demonstrations, inspiration and fun. In addition, we usually get some free stuff, including stamps!  One of the sets I received was called "Marquee Messages". The old-fashioned multi light bulb sign design is really popular right now and boy is there alot you can do with this. I already featured this card on an older post and here is a newer version we recently did in a class. 

The card is first stamped with the Hardwood background stamp and then cut with one of the Lots of Labels framelits on the bottom edge to create a sandwich board type effect. While you can't see it, I also stamped the back of the card in the same manner.  The stamp set isn't just for birthdays and includes many variations to celebrate someone special for a special occasion.  Here's the inside:

Hopefully you notice the new punch!  It's a badge shape and there are some great stamps to coordinate with this, all sold as a bundle.  I think this makes a great birthday card idea, but can you also imagine the possibilities with a baby announcement or graduation announcement? Wouldn't that be fun!

Well, I'm back to the drawing board and creating some more rubber stamping goodness today! Have a great day and take some time to savor the summer ;)
