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!

Yummy Monster

Hi there stampin' Friends!  Yahoo, it's Friday!  I have a leisurely schedule for the weekend so am looking forward to that!  We will watch the Super Bowl, but couldn't care less about the outcome. Our favorite team, the Vikings, are never in the Super Bowl - haha!

I decided today was a great day to post the following card because of all the yummy treats and dishes that will be consumed in honor of a football game.  We do like our traditions, don't we!  Here's my card:

I bought this stamp set because I don't have many children-appropriate themed stamps and wanted to beef up my meager supply. I thought this monster was cute and friendly, not scary.  This would make a perfect shaker card with a window in the stomach, but I decided to go back to watercolor pencils and coloring. I used watercolor paper, watercolor pencils for color and my blender pen to blend the color a bit. If you're wondering where I found that background Designer Series Paper, it is from the "Party Animal" set. Isn't it cute with the cake, forks and candles!  I did hand cut out the monster, rather quickly, and not with any eye to perfect edges.  I guess nothing everything can come with a perfectly shaped framelit, right?

I hope you are enjoying my blog and the ideas I'm throwing at you for your inspiration. My cards are designed with an eye to being accessible to any level of crafter, not too detailed  to bog down and not extremely layered to end up un-mailable. A certain level of "cuteness" also helps!

Have a great weekend and see you back Monday!
