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!

Thanks for the smile ;)

Good morning!
After a fun weekend, I'm back with some crafting goodness for you!  We did watch the Superbowl, were rooting for the underdogs and now you probably know what happened... Oh well! It's all over for now.

I've been playing quite a bit with new product from the Occasions Catalog and am sharing some ideas as I go. There are so many possibilities with each stamp and framelit set, it can be overwhelming!  Here's my latest creation:

I revisited the "Falling In Love" Designer Series paper and also the Dragonfly Dreams bundle. I love this paper-- it creates the Bokeh art style that is so popular in soft pink and taupe tones. It's a little difficult to tell, but I used copper foil sheets for my metallic and copper thread as well. If you look closely, you can see that I have a double layer dragonfly. The bottom layer is a dragon fly stamped with Soft Suede on Sweet Sugarplum card stock and cut out. The top layer is a detailed dragonfly cut out on the copper foil paper... again a bit of an experiment. I think vellum paper would have some nice options too with this set.

Have you tried the dragonfly set yet?  It's great!  Here's an up close look at it:

As you can see, you can create a very detailed image or a more watercolor type image with the dragonfly and the bee and also use for 2 step stamping ideas.

I'm getting ready for some classes this week. Check out my calendar on my SU website and see if any of them work for you!  I'd love to see you!

Happy Stampin'!
