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!

Dad's turn!

Hi stampers!
I few posts ago, I featured a Mother's Day card... here's one for the Dads!  I love making masculine cards, primarily because I love the typical color schemes and themes. The Occasions catalog this year had a great tool stamp and framelit set to perfectly capture a lot of Dads interests and hobbies. Unfortunately, the framelit set is sold out, but the stamps are still available!  Here's one of the cards I made with a stamp set and this theme:

The stick-on metal stars are so fun and easy to apply to any card.  I decided to double stamp my sentiment. I first stamped DAD in Smoky Slate and then went over the top of it with "You're the Best" in Delightful Dijon. As you can see, the DAD letters took up a lot of space on the card so I didn't want to take more with another sentiment. I love how this turned out!

Here's another card I made using the framelits and the "Nailed It" stamp set:

I used the new Hexagon dynamic impressions folder for my background. I colored the tools with our new Watercolor Pencils and then used blender pens to blend the color a bit better. I will be hanging on to this set for a long time! It's so perfect for the handymen in my life ;)
