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!

Painter's Palette

Day Two of my "just stamps" posts for those of you who don't own a Big Shot, have to watch your budget on craft stuff or just enjoy stamping without all the tools!  I have a couple of cards to show you today... They are simple but eye-catching for a more contemporary design and color scheme.  I used the paper from the smaller 6" x 6" tablet called "Playful Palette" to inspire me with the color scheme.  The stamp set is "Painter's Palette" and there's even some coordinating Washi tape!

The first card is somewhat two-tone with black and white on one of our new In-Colors, Sweet Sugarplum. It's a great color, in between pink and purple!

The second card showcases paper on the left side of the card and stamping on the right! It's hard to tell the difference, isn't it! I have to admit I would never put these colors together on my own, but I like what happens when the designers at Stampin'Up! do!

Lastly, here's a look at the stamp set itself... lots of possibilities with the three different brush strokes, the spatter dots and more.

I have to admit, this set is fun for me as I am not a painter or sketcher at all!  I need rubber stamps or some other medium to create art and stamping makes me feel very artistic! I so envy those of you who can draw and paint!

Hope you are enjoying your week!
