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!

Bear Hugs for You!

Although it wasn't a big surprise, because the weathermen called it, we got about 6" of snow last night and this morning I am living in a winter wonderland!  This will be our first snow fall in our new house so we will be dealing with snow removal... lots of it!  Good exercise, right?

Of course there is a nip in the air so it reminded me of sweaters, one of life's simple pleasures!  The card I have for you today has two sweater  elements, the bear's sweater and the background cable knit embossing folder! Here's the card:

The bear stamp is from our Occasions catalog last year and Stampin'Up! repeated the design, only this time with a sweater on him!  I love it! He's already for winter now.   This was easy to make. I stamped the bear once in Early Espresso ink for his body and then stamped him again in Cherry Cobbler and hand cut the sweater out and then placed it on his body with dimensionals. When in doubt, it usually works to add some Washi tape to a card to spice it up a bit!  The cable knit embossing folder is a must have from the Holiday Catalog. It is deeper embossing than usual and so gorgeous! You could switch up the sentiment and this would make a great birthday card as well.

Hope you like my card!  See the supplies below and be sure to check out the whole catalog for more great ideas. Snow time is crafting time!

Happy Stampin'!
