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!

Hey, someone took a bite out of my gingerbread man!!

We (demonstrators) recently learned that the most popular product in sales for the 3rd quarter of 2016 is the "Candy Cane Lane" Designer Series Paper and the most popular stamp set in the 3rd quarter is "Cookie Cutter Christmas".  I have designed several cards now combing these two products and had no idea... guess I'm on trend, right?!!  This card is great and will bring a smile to anyone's face:

Given all the fabulous tools we have, this card is a snap!  The Cookie Cutter punch helped me punch out the gingerbread men and their cute red bow ties.  The Cupcake Cutouts framelit set has the pop up banner with score marks provided for easy folding and popping up. Everything else is just taking advantage of a great color scheme provided by the Candy Cane Lane DSP.  Card making doesn't have to be complicated, especially with some key tools to save you time and headaches! (I used a retired small scallop circle punch to take a "bite" out of the gingerbread man's head!)

It's Friday!  This week went really fast~!   I plan to blog this weekend so come back for more!

Happy Stampin',
