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!

Eskimos Anyone?

Hey Stampin' Buddies,
I have a favorite card for you today out of all my experiments with the new Holiday Catalog products!  This is definitely one I'm proud of!  Here's the card:

How cute is that?!!  This fun card used a lot of tools but was super easy to make. For the igloo, I embossed some white card stock with the brick folder, then cut it out into a circle and then punched an opening to the igloo with a smaller circle punch. I used dimensionals to pop up the igloo and used some left over brick-embossed paper  for inside the igloo. I then used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamps and punch for my Eskimo. I added a candy cane for him to hang on to and a sentiment and even some white snowballs and silver cord on the top.  This would make a fun birthday card for a winter birthday person! It's hard to see in the picture, but I used a little wink of Stella ink on the igloo for some sparkle and shimmer... lots of fun details for a unique card!

I hope these ideas I share inspire you!  Leave me a comment if you like so I can get some feedback and improve my creative efforts!

Happy Stampin'!
