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!

Glad Tidings

Last day of September! Where has this month gone?  It is getting so pretty around here with the colors of the fall leaves and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I never get tired of where I live. I think that's a human trait for most people... we like being home!  The card and products I have to show you today caught my eye in the Holiday Catalog because of the deer and pine trees.. duh!  Anything that reminds me of home will catch my eye!  I put a huge twist on this set of stamps and framelits by doing a very nontraditional color scheme.  Here's my card:

You are probably wondering why I would go with some version of pink for Christmas!  There are some fun glitter ribbons in the catalog that I wanted to use, as well as bling like rhinestones and silver foil paper. The color is Sweet Sugarplum, one of our new In-Colors this year. This card also incorporated some sponging with our new brayer type sponges and we sponged on the gorgeous embossed paper in the Holiday catalog. it is a pack of 12 sheets, 6 different embossed designs, all white so you can sponge away and make them any color you like.   All my products are listed below and there are alot of them!  This card would be just as striking if you substituted the silver foil for gold or copper and substituted the Sugarplum for navy, dark red, rich green, purple, black, etc.

If you are attempting to use framelits such as these, be sure to get our die cut brush with sponge to help you get the paper released from the framelit after cutting. It is a must have if you do alot of detailed cutting. My other secret is the Precision Base Plate which helps get a good cut without so many passes through the Big Shot. These have become standard equipment for me and I use them everyday!

I'll be back with more after the weekend!  Have a great one!
