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.

Classy plants with a vertical twist!

Once you get into rubber stamping, you realize sooner or later that there are not many vertical-oriented greetings out there! Most everything has somewhat of a horizontal, square or circular look to it. There are times, however, when you want straight-up vertical for a particular card design. There's a new set in the annual catalog called "Vertical Greetings" that I bought almost immediately for that very reason.   I combined the unique stamp set with a different card fold as well for a truly special card. Here's the outside of the card:

And here's the inside, a 5 panel card with four 2" panels and one 4" panel for a total length of 12". The card width is still the standard 5-1/2" (FYI-- I scored at 2", 4", 8" and 10").

It's a little tough to see all 5 panels, but what you see when it is folded are the two outside panels and when it is opened up, you can see all 5 panels. I used the same stamp set for all panels and added some flowers from a birthday set and a touch of gold glimmer paper (see the supply list below). I stamped each sentiment 3 times, next to each other, but another twist would be to stagger them height-wise.   I'm also always looking for a way to use purple and pink in my creations as they seem to be my most difficult colors to incorporate so I was really happy with this card!

I hope this inspires you to try your hand at rubber stamping as an art form. It is so addictive and fun!  Let me know how I can help you on your creative journey with products, advice, questions or encouragement. I love sharing what I do!

Happy Stampin',
