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!

Country Livin'

I'm continuing to show some stamps I've gotten and had time to play with. I make lots of thank you cards to sell (and use!) and it's fun to turn almost any artwork into a thank you card. this concept also works really well for birthdays.  I love the simplicity of this artwork and anything country looking or nostalgic always catches my eye. Here are some cards I made:

And here's the stamp set that inspired me!

While I just stamped the images, they would also be fun to color with markers, Aqua painters, blender pens or colored pencils.  Since I was just playing around, I also used some retired and non-Stampin'Up elements on my cards. Before I joined Stampin'Up! as a demonstrator, almost 5 years ago now,  I already had a good stash of stuff and I keep it in circulation now and then, though I great prefer SU's quality of product, especially the paper, ink and stamps ;)

I have some classes today and tomorrow and I'll be featuring those cards next so come back to see what's next! Thanks so much for taking a peek at what I've been up to!

Happy Stampin'
