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!

Jolly Moose

After our 6"+ of snow earlier this week, everyone is digging out the mittens, hats and scarves!  We went from 70 degree days to 14 degree nights and to say the least, that killed off the straggling flowers I still had around the patio!  While weather does not really impact me day to day (very grateful to not have an outside job that is severely contingent upon the weather!), it is interesting to say the least!  

Stampin'Up!'s Holiday catalog features so many fun things, but one of the cutest is a stamp set/punch bundle featuring some cute characters and stocking caps. Here's my card:

My idea for this card came from the sentiment which actually belongs to another set, Santa's Sleigh. When I saw "Hope your season brings one good thing on top of another", I immediately thought of a bunch of stocking caps on top of a head. To make it even that much cuter, I decided to make the head a moose!  It's really fun to combine different sets, be sort of whimsical and every once in awhile go fo the look that makes no sense in real life. I've seen moose in the wild and have never seen one with a stocking cap. They are tough dudes!  When I was all done, I felt the edges of the card were a little "meh" so I added some washi tape which usually fixes that!  Hope this gives you some fun ideas. Check out this stamp/punch bundle, it is adorable!
