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!

Cute, not scary, Scarecrow!

Hey friends!
Don't know about you, but I am seeing the beginning signs of fall all around me. Since we moved out of town, I drive past several corn and hay fields to get to my house. There are aspen trees in my yard (always wanted, never had until now), the mornings are definitely chilly enough for my heaviest bathrobe and slippers and I saw my first bowl of candy corn at the place where I work part time!  It must be fall!!  It's my favorite season because of the nostalgic feelings it evokes for me. I love the color palette associated with fall, pumpkin anything and I love football and marching bands. Yeah!  Perfect time of year!

To get in the spirit of autumn, I'm playing with some more new products. I knew I wanted to make a scarecrow card and out of the blue, got the idea on how to make a field for him to be in.  Here's my card:

Have you seen the cute cookie cutter punch in the new Holiday Catalog?  Well Stampin'Up! hit a home run with this one because they included a winter themed stamp set and a fall themed stamp set! There are 9 different characters you can stamp  and punch out between the two of the sets!  That's alot of value for one punch!  If you are wondering about the field my scarecrow is standing in, I used 3 different yellow shades of card stock and cut it with our fringe scissors!  I love this card because it's so cheerful and happy. To those of you in Bozeman, it wasn't on purpose, but it ended up being a BOBCAT themed card too!  (First home game is tomorrow... GO CATS!!). The balloons are cut from the envelope paper we sell.  All in all, a great birthday card for a fall birthday and for any age.

Thanks for stopping by!  I would love it if you would leave a comment. I changed my settings so I don't think you have to register or sign in or anything. Please let me know if that isn't true!  Trying to enhance my blog but I'm self-taught so there's always more to learn and figure out ;)

Happy Weekend!
