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!

Sometimes you need to apologize....

Hey Stampers!

If you've ever had the notion that greeting cards are old fashioned, you need to reconsider your notion!  Alot of rubber stamp companies are very trendy with the culture, in a good way. They use phrasing we've all heard and express thoughts we would say out loud. Today's card is a great example of that:

This really couldn't be any more simple, but that is what is called for with an apology... just a straightforward SORRY.  None of us like alot of excuses, frills, rationalizing, etc. We want to get to the heart of the matter and honestly, apologizing isn't fun but oh, so necessary!  This card makes the point in a simple and direct way.   I used the "Nailed It" stamp set and some Moroccan Designer Series Paper. I hope you notice the awesome adhesive "screws" at the top, a great embellishment that goes with this set.  The other thing I did was layer two colors/styles of ribbon, a wider one under a more narrow one.

That is pretty short and sweet, just as it should be for this type of card. My supplies are listed below if you are interested in any of the products I used to make this card!

I worked on my March calendar of events/classes yesterday and it is very full!  Check it out at my Stampin'Up! website, the first click/pic on the right. Dates and times are subject to change as it gets closer to March, but I'm hoping to pull this all off!  Come and join me!

Have a great Wednesday!
Happy Stampin'!
