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!

Bear Hugs!

Hey Friends,
I have a great idea for you today. It's a way to show love at Valentine's Day or anytime and it involves a hug. What could be better than that?!!  Today I'm featuring the Bear Hugs stamp and framelits  These were first introduced in last year's Occasions Catalog and were so popular, they have been kept around for another year. Maybe they will even last yet another year, who knows!  I love the bear with his wide open arms, ready to hug!  There's also a baby bear and some fun accessories to stamp and cut. Here's my card:

I also chose to keep the color scheme simple with two contrasting colors, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe. My washi tape and taupe paper are retired, but the rest of the card is current! If you wanted to add some further dimension to this card, you could stamp the bear on some Tip Top Taupe cardstock and die cut it out and pop it up as well as the heart. All sorts of possibilities! I thought you would like a close up look at this fun stamp set, so here that is:

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card today! This is such a fun form of art and I love sharing it with you.  What have you been up to lately?

Happy Stampin'!
