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!

Summer Sun and Sailing

Every now and then, you come across a stamp set that is sooooooo versatile you hardly know what to do with it or where to start!  For me, that is the "Swirly Bird" stamp set. There are a lot of pieces to this set, designed to create all sorts of images when combined together. Of course, there are framelits too so that makes it even more fun!  Here's my first attempt with this fun set:

I stamped the sun and boat, used paper for the background of the ocean and then used the framelits to accent the sun and ocean. The burlap was a complete after thought and honestly, a mistake cover up!  My red ink pad dropped and smudged right on the edge of my card... oooops!

I'm planning on trying some more things with this set... maybe birds, kites, donuts?  haha  Check it out and see where your imagination takes you!

There's a Bonus Days promotion going on right now until the end of July. For every $50 you spend with SU, you earn a $5 bonus coupon good for use in August!  Sounds like a great deal to me! Let me know if you want to take advantage of that savings and knock a few things off your wish list!

Happy Stampin'!
