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!

Old Fashioned Santa

Over the few years I've been doing this, I've been trying to figure out what my style is. I'm still not there as I like so many different looks and techniques, but one thing I come back to is a vintage look with stained edges, old fashioned sketching, etc.  Of course, this was easy this time around with this Santa stamp!  Here's my card:

I also used one of my favorite techniques lately, inking up the embossing folder!  I inked up the raised side of the pine branches before I embossed it and then inked up the edges as well just a tad for a weathered, old look. The Victorian lace looks just right and for fun, I added one of our cute pine cone charms.   This card is another card available to make at my card buffet!  I'm up to 17 choices so far and the fun starts tomorrow morning at 9 a.m.! I hope you can come ;)

Happy Stampin'
