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!

Woodland scene

Happy Monday Morning!  We are going to have a gorgeous day today and then SNOW!  Guess that is not a big shocker this time of year and I enjoy all four seasons, so it's all good!  I have my monthly October classes this week and I wanted to finally do a card that I have had sitting around for over a year. It will not exactly look like this but will use this technique! Here's the idea:

I did not come up with this idea, but to my knowledge, none of my customers have tried this. The secret technique to this card is to do all your stamping on the embossing folder, the non-raised side. You then insert your paper and emboss and the ink you have stamped on the folder is transferred to the paper, "behind" the foreground of the raised embossing. It's alot of fun, a little stressful but super exciting to see the results.  I'll post the cards we made later so you can see an updated version of this technique!

Let me know if you are interested in attending a class. They are not intimidating and you don't need any prior experience, just a willingness to try something fun!

Hope you have a great Monday!
