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!

I have to admit that when a new catalog comes out with Stampin'Up! and I start getting some of the new products, I am almost paralyzed with where to start! It all looks so good and fun to work with. I'm still sifting through some of my products and was reminded I bought an Ombre Stampin' Pad. These are pads with 5 shades of a color, dark to light. I think it works best with a more solid image but I like the look! Here's my card:

This ended up being a simple appearing card but there are a lot of layers and and elements here. It could also be jazzed up with some bling or our awesome mini pine cones for a little pizzazz.  The main green color is Emerald Envy and it looks really sharp with Cherry Cobbler. They are both bold and rich enough colors to tangle with each other and not dominate ;)  We also carry the Ombre ink pads in Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral. I think I will be buying those as well after I saw how much fun the Emerald Envy pad is!

I've listed my supplies below so you can see what I used to create this special card. Christmas is coming and there's still time to make some cards!  I have a card buffet coming up again on October 20th, from 9 to noon and 5 to 8. I hope you can drop by! It's an Open House format and you are free to make the cards you want to make at the pace you want to go!  I'll remind you again next week!

Happy Stampin'!
