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!

Glimmer Paper Galore!

Happy Monday!
We woke up to some snow this morning. Normally that wouldn't be worth mentioning because it is usually so commonplace, but we've not had snow for a month!  I actually had "scoop dog poop" on my list of things to do today but gee, now it's all covered up again... too bad!

I have a glitzy, sparkly card for you today!  It will bring out your inner bling:

One of our freebies with Sale-A-Bration is a wonderful pack of 12 6 x 6 sheets of glimmer paper in Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay. They are gorgeous!  I thought we needed a card that featured these lovely colors.  I've seen several variations on my idea, using the Stylish Stems Framelit dies, with a peek-a-boo feature. you cut out the flowers on a large piece and then place some other paper behind it. For this card, I used the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper. I then added some more glimmer paper with the leaves. I popped up the white piece with some dimensionals to give it some depth. As a side note, I used our shimmery white paper for some extra sparkle!  This was a fun and easy card to make. You could also add sentiments on the front or inside.

Want to get your own glimmer paper?  All you have to do is spend $50 on any Stampin'Up! product and choose that as your freebie - it's that easy!  There is also a stamp set that coordinates with these framelits, see that listed below in the supplies.

Hope you have a great start to your week and keep on crafting!
