Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Artistically Asian

Happy Thursday Stampers!
I have a really different theme today... Asian. I have to take Stampin'Up!'s word for it however, as I really don't know for sure!  There is a great nature set in the Annual Catalog called Artistically Asian that also includes some Asian lettering and words of faith and friendship. The sketches caught my eye and the words drew me in. Here's my first card experimenting with this set:


I decided to make the Asian lettering more subtle with Tip Top Taupe Ink and Crumb Cake Paper. I then used Crisp Cucumber as my green... that most difficult of green's to work with.  My background paper is from the Affectionately Yours set of Designer Series Paper which I have used often and featured many times on my blog. Finally, I love the saying... isn't that so true. Our friends are such an important part of our lives.

Here's my second attempt with this card:


This time, I used Rich Razzleberry  and Sweet Sugarplum ink. My background paper is from the Blooms and Bliss DSP pack. I will be coming back to this set and using it again. It would always be an option to not use the Asian lettering too and just use the sketches and sentiments in English, especially since there's some uncertainty on my part if I matched them up more or less correctly.

Enjoy your day, in all of its challenges, triumphs and same-o, same-o!

Happy Stampin'!
Sarah
