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!

Joyful Wreath

Hey stampers!
Those of you who have been around Stampin'Up! for at least a couple years will recognize the stamp/framelit combo I am showing you today!  It came out awhile back and has been hugely popular for all seasons but especially Christmas.  There are a ton of things to do with this set, but I went very quick and easy and switched it up instead with my color scheme.  Instead of a more traditional green or red, I chose Mint Macaron and Soft Suede as my wreath colors. I got to those choices by the background paper from the Petals and Paisleys Designer Series Paper. Here's my card:

I also added some touches of copper with my washi tape and copper foil paper "Joy". The copper tone really looks nice with Soft Suede... I'm going to remember that!  This isn't a difficult card design, instead, it's about the color choices and copper accents, and of course, having the right tools!

Having a Big Shot has become indispensable to paper crafting. All the companies are designing with the use of framelits in mind and there is an explosion of stamp/framelit combos everywhere!  Maybe you have never seen a Big Shot... here it is!
