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!

Beautiful, Glimmery Dragonflies

Hi Stampin friends!
We have some new Sale-A-Bration products to enjoy and my favorite is the new glimmer paper!  It comes in four 6 x 6 sheets of Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Sweet Sugarplum!  I couldn't wait to design a card using this fabulous paper:


Isn't that amazing?  I used my favorite dragonfly thinlit, a set of 5 dragonflies all hooked together so it's actually only one cut. I decided they needed some pearls too - haha!  I also want to draw your attention to the sponged Mint Macaron piece underneath the dragonflies.  This is our Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series paper that we used a sponge brayer on with some Mint Macaron ink. It's an amazing way to ink up some paper in a subtle way, with any color you choose. Other than the glimmery dragonflies, I think what really makes this card is the color scheme... a soft mint green and luscious sugarplum light violet. I also never waste an opportunity to use my "Vertical Greetings" set. You will get sick of me referring to this wonderful set that gets your sentiment across vertically rather than horizontally!  I use it all the time!

Hope you enjoyed my dragonfly card! See you tomorrow!
Sarah
