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!

Birthday Queen

Hi stampers!
I'm back today with another birthday card. There is always someone having a birthday and that is by far the most common reason to send a card to those you love!  This card was born out of a desire to play with a new bundle and I really wasn't sure what the end product would like like. Here it is:

The bundle is from the annual catalog, "Biggest Birthday Ever".  I was intrigued by the slice of cake and what to put on those layers. I fiddled around with color, paper and finally settled on washi tape!  Quite a diversion from where I started. I taped the washi tape on a plain white piece of card stock, taking care to line up the layers perfectly so they would show through the open slots on the piece of cake die cut. I felt like this card needed something more so I added a sparkly crown with bling... just what every queen needs!  I finished it off with a Happy Birthday and EAT CAKE!

I'm a little conflicted on whether this card was right on the mark or slightly off. I think the color scheme was different and somewhat crazy with perhaps a little too much going on. What do you think?  I would love your feedback!!

There's a great surprise coming in April's Paper Pumpkin kit - it's a kit designed by Sara, Douglass, Stampin'Up!'s CEO!  You need to sign up by April 10th to receive it and then receive monthly kits with stamps, ink, projects and more.
