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!

Sleeping Baby

Good morning from Bozeman!
We had an incredible sunrise this morning... I captured it all on my I-phone and have some pictures at the bottom of my post... sooooo pretty. My artistic efforts pale in comparison to the original Creator, God.

I have some baby cards for you today. I'm not completely thrilled with them as I think they are lacking but I haven't figured out exactly what they are lacking. That just encourages me to try again! Here they are, a girl and a boy:




The more I look at these, the more I think they are fine, but nothing out of the ordinary.  I would like to do a better job with coloring, get more shading in there. I used the Watercolor pencils and then blended the color with a blender pen, but it's not very shaded at all. I stuck with the star theme by using the star embossing folder and also some metallic enamel stars. The ribbon is the free product ribbon in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, available with any $50 purchase. What do you think?  What should be done to jazz these cards up a little...maybe some layering? I'd love to hear your thoughts!  We can all learn from each other....

Let's move on to something that is truly gorgeous... today's sunrise! I took these pictures from our deck and honestly, I never get tired of the view!







Now that's some glorious art!  Have a good day!!
Happy Stampin,
Sarah
