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!

Just for You - Happy Anniversary!

Good Monday Morning!
I'm staring out my window at some "thick as pea soup" fog... in other words, I can only see about 50 yards!  It looks like some kind of weird blizzard but there's no snow.  I can't complain however, I'm warm, comfortable and ready to roll on another week of stamping fun!

I have some fun new products to share today, from the Occasions Catalog (supply list below). The card I want to share features a style of photography or art called Bokeh.  Here's a link of some examples of Bokeh photography if you are interested:

This is an out-of-focus, blurry style that is usually in the background while the foreground image is focused and clear.  We have an amazing Designer Series Paper stack  called "Falling In Love", with several Bokeh style images and that is what I made my card from:

I combined this wonderful paper with the "So In Love" stamp set and framelit bundle for an elegant anniversary card that screams classy and beautiful!  I used Soft Suede ink so my sentiments would show up but not dominate the card. What do you think?  I would love to hear some comments!

Here's a peek at the whole paper stack so you can see more of the lovely designs.

While this set is designed with love, weddings and anniversaries in mind, wouldn't it make gorgeous baby cards as well?  Such a soft, subtle palette of colors in pinks and blues would be perfect!

I hope I've inspired you today!  I also have an event announcement!  I'm hosting a Charity Stamping Event this Saturday. We will gather and make as many dog and cat themed cards as possible and donate our handiwork to the local Human Society for their use.  Contact me for details if you would like to participate. You can also participate from long distance!  Make some thank you, sympathy, or thinking of you cards with a dog or cat theme and send them to me or donate them to your local shelter!  Handmade cards are such a treat and how sweet is it for a charity to have some cards to spread some love and appreciation!

Thanks for stopping by!
